Can't resume cups printing

I am trying to print from my Canon Pixma 2500 series printer. The message I get from print manager is …print service unavailable … and …bad file descriptor…The output from systemctl status cups is

How do I get cups back to print?

I actually ran into a set of broken printing on another system yesterday, a canon pixma m920 … I couldnt investigate fully, but it may have had nothing to do with the device or drivers, as I attempted re-adding multiple ways (gutenprint, driverless, cijfilter, etc)… but printing failed on all attempts, either from ‘cannot locate printer’ or some other pstopdf/ghostscript ‘exited’ non-error without printing.

Sorry to not be of more help just now. But I might be back :wink:

In your Title you talking about resume and below it sounds like your printer isn’t working at all.

11 days ago (second last Manjaro stable), i could print and also resume printing (after changing my empty ink) with cups on my Canon Pixma 4600 Series.

I only use it 1 time per year and never had problems for 3 years (since i joined Linux).

After my usage i just remove the Printer from System Settings>Printer Tab and let it reinstall when i need the printer again.

Maybe it helps to get it working again, i also recommend to unplug it first and after removing the printer just restart your PC.

This is my status actually (Printer not deleted yet):
