View Full Version : [all variants] Network Printer Stops After a Day or Two

September 19th, 2008, 07:06 AM
I have a printer that is attached to a server, and every couple days the printer seems to stop. The solution is to go into CUPS, press the start printer button and then get on with life.

For me, this would be a nagging issue, but this printer is shared by a few people and I don't want to have to train them in CUPS just so they can print.

It seems almost like the printer is turning to idle, but I've never had this problem with this printer before, and once I press the start button it starts right up.

Any ideas out there?
