    Delete all print jobs in cue?

    I got my print settings in order now. I have half a dozen print jobs waiting now (that I do not need to do), and I need to know where they are, to delete all print jobs.

    Thanks...
    If you wanna' help, great. But explain as you go. Otherwise, you're just giving away fish, and not the important stuff - pole, bait, net, etc...

    Still a beginnerd, but not absolute...

    restarting will erase all of them.
    Get Firefox!

    doubleclick the printer icon on taskbar. Then you should see the print jobs, right click on them , select cancel to cancel them and they should go away.

    I don't have the printer icon showing up. Where is it to 'add' to the taskbar?

    instead, try going to system > administration > printing

    How about Applications > Accessories > Manage print jobs

    Went there; found 'error policy': retry, abort, etc. Changed accordingly.

    Thanks! Now to cancel previous jobs...

    Missed this before, now found, without previous jobs showing up.

    ???

    If they print later, no big deal; it's only a few jobs. Other setting is adjusted now, thanks!

    I haven't seen anyone suggest http://localhost:631, this will get you to the cups web interface. See screenshot, I haven't got any print jobs pending, but this is where you can delete them.
