Linux - Delete pending print jobs.

December 2016




Issue


A pending document in Accessories/Manage print jobs is blocked and I can not delete it.
I have an HP Deskjet F4280 All-In-One.

Solution


The "lpq" command should give you a list of print "jobs".
You can use the following commands to deleted these items:
  • "sudo cancel n°job" 
  • or
  • "sudo cancel -a" 
    • Thanks to jipicy for this tip.
