CUPS not clearing jobs


I have en Epson ET-8500. I was able to use CUPS for a while but now jobs are not going to the printer and I cannot delete them from http://localhost:631

I am asked to provide login details on loop. Is there a way to force jobs to be deleted from the queue?
It is a bit tedious to have to use my phone every time I want to print.

Let me know what else you need to know in order to be able to help.

That, for one, is pretty vague. :grin:
And open to quite some range of interpretation what the reason might be.

Sorry about the vagueness. I’m in a kind of I don’t know what I don’t know situation (I am very much a newbie).

Does this screenshot help?

… and you cannot cancel the job from there?

No. When I try it asks me to login. I do, but then it asks me to login again. And repeat.
My login used to work and I have not changed it so I’m confused as why that doesn’t work any more.

What error (if any) do you get if you issue from a terminal:

cancel -ax

And then again with sudo:

sudo cancel -ax

No error messages and the jobs are gone from the list :slight_smile:
Thanks a lot.

Now to try printing again.
