    Exclamation CUPS Printing Problem


    I have setup a CUPS server on centos 5.3.
    I m able to add printers(lpd,network etc) and clients(linux and windows) to this server. I m also able to print MS word and text files to this server.

    The problem is that when i submit a PDF file to print from windows xp client, it is not printing...

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    First, make sure you have plenty of room on the /var/spool file system. It may be that the amount of disc space needed to spool the PDF files IS causing the file system to run out of space, as per the error message "E [18/Nov/2010:10:29:41 +0530] cupsdReadClient: Unable to write 1460 bytes to /var/spool/cups/00000001: No space left on device". Remember, /var contains also /var/log and it is not uncommon for log files to fill up that file system, especially if /var is on its own file system.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
