Hoping someone can help. Tried to add a new printer to my linux. The printer is located on my windows network and attached to one of my windows boxes. I added it via printer config, it didn't seem to go right and now i cannot delete it.
I see the printer in print manager with an orange circle with an exclamation point on it. also, i can't delete any test docs i setup for printing. The error says i don't own job such and such. I am hoping there is a way for me to edit a config or delete a file so i can start from scratch and add at he printer again.

Thnx Latkid ohmy.gif

Well I'd hoped someone would reply but i managed to figure it out on my own thru varius web sights and forums.
here's the command for anyone whose interested :
1. terminal
2.su
3. (password)
4. cd /
5.cd usr/sbin
6. ./lpadmin -x (name of your printer)
Easy as that ...
