can I cancel my print job on printer 513-pub (or any other laser
First of all you must be the owner of the job you want to cancel.
Then the commands to issue depend on your operating system.
On CERNVM, using the command XPRINT, just type:This will give you the full list of the jobs submitted to that printer, e.g.:
Rank Owner Job Files Total Size active karel 410 qq.ps 136516 bytes 1st roethl 266 su3test.lst 85884 bytes 2nd CREMEL 769 XPICON.PS.A1 11294 bytes
You must then identify your job with its ``job id'' number (under the column ``Job''). If, for example, you are the owner of the last job in the list (Owner ``CREMEL''), the job id is 769. To cancel this job you just have to execute the command:
On VAXVMS, using the command ``XPRINT/LW'' (the CERN written TCP/IP Printing facility for printing on laser writers connected to Appletalk), just type:which will give, for instance:
status: busy; source: LocalTalk Rank Owner Job Files ... active root 19 Llinfo.txt, Modem.txt 1st CREMEL 501 disk\$dy:[cremel]login.com;61
Then, to cancel job number 501 for owner ``CREMEL'' type the command:
On UNIX, for printers connected to the AppleTalk (the vast majority of printers at CERN), the procedure depends on the system (``UNIX flavour''). If you are printing with lpr, you can issue the command:which will give, for instance:
Queue Dev Status Job Files ... ------- ----- --------- --- ---------- 513-pub pub READY 513-pub: status: waiting; source: LocalTalk 513-pub: Rank Owner Job Files ... 513-pub: active root 19 Llinfo.txt, Modem.txt 513-pub: 1st cremel 46 ucoaq.art
Then, to remove job number 46 (owned by user ``cremel'') from the printer's spool queue, type the command:
Still on UNIX, when printing with lp (UNIX systems based on System V, such as HP-UX and Sun/Solaris 2), the commands to issue are:which will display:
printer queue for 513-pub status: busy; source: LocalTalk 513-pub-19 root priority ? from sgca02 Llinfo.txt 11696 bytes Modem.txt 36374 bytes 513-pub-773 cremel priority ? from hpkuipc ucoaq.art 634 bytes
To remove the job ``513-pub-773'' owned by ``cremel'' just type:
