That makes sense. The print queue will have to be a nice clean freshly
laundered one that way. Still, I would love to know where the "hidden" spool
file is. This has happened to me more than once. And I assume the web
interface to cups will work as well as the kde printer manager - I am trying
to wean myself off kde-dependence. I'll give it a try in the morning, and
print off my much-delayed job...
Thanks to all.
