At times I am not able to print, on typing lpq it gives and error message “Printer not ready”.
I don’t know why this happens, but created a simple script which just resets the print and then its ready to print.
This is what the script looks like:
sudo sed -i -e ‘/StateMessage .*lpd failed/d’ -e ‘s/State Stopped/State Idle/’ /etc/cups/printers.conf
service cups restart
Happy printing !
