[Bug 1175] New: CUPS disables printers at weekends [solution included]
Summary: CUPS disables printers at weekends [solution included]
Especially after long weekends, colleagues complaint about dysfuncional
printers. The reason was that CUPS disables printers that don't react within a
given time. This happens on weekends, when printers are turned off while there
are jobs left on the queue.
The easiest solution for this looks like this:
Write a cronjob that runs every morning and starts your printer(s):
# cupsenable -c MyPrinterID
Option "-c" clears the queue before activating the printer.
To get a list of your printers, on root@tjener can type:
# grep '^<\(Default\)\?Printer ' /etc/cups/printers.conf
Max gave a hack that turns on all given printers in a row:
grep '^<\(Default\)\?Printer ' /etc/cups/printers.conf | sed -e
's/^<\(Default\)\?Printer \(.\+\)>/\2/' | \
while read printer; do
