[Bug 958] New: wish: nightly clearance of printing queue


           Summary: wish: nightly clearance of printing queue
           Product: Skolelinux
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Configuration
        AssignedTo: debian-edu@lists.debian.org
        ReportedBy: rgx@gmx.de

Whoever works at school and copes with their computer labs, will know  
this experience: In the morning you switch on the printer, and before  
any pupil showed up, a pile of print outs springs out of the device --  
queud the day before. 
(This could raise the question of printing accounting or of an easy  
access to printing queues by adding teachers to group lpadmin etc., but  
this is another discussion). 
Now, I just wonder, what is the most straight forward way to introduce a  
nightly clearance of the printing queue? 
- lprm 
- rm /var/spool/cups/* 
- ,,, ? 
I like to create a corresponding cronjob. 
Thanks for your ideas 
P.S: My impression was that just deleting the files in /var/spool/cups  
makes cups hick-up. Additionally I must admit that we have more than  
one lpq-system installed - some working this day and other another day)
