Description of problem:
Print jobs sent to the printer do not leave the print queue.

This is a dupe of an old bug I can't find.

It's really annoying, because it clutters up the print queue.

Need more information than this!  How are you viewing the print queue, for example?

screenshot of print status

Good point. I wanted to at least get something logged for me to fill in later.
When I print a document, I *expect* (and this may be the problem) for the print
queue to tell me it's printing my document, then to either disappear, or wait a
short while and then disappear. It doesn't.

Attached is a screenshot.
Please ignore all of the screenshot apart from the "Completed" line. The other
lines appear for my other bug.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2005-07-26 05:54:48 EDT
I've seen that myself too.  'lpstat -o' shows no jobs, so CUPS is working
correctly.  It's the GUI app (eggcups?) that is not.
Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-07-26 10:09:26 EDT

I'm not entirely sure I understand what's going on here.  Can you clarify?

Is this a request for completed items to be periodically expunged from the list?
Or is this a request for the print queue icon to disappear after a while of not
being used?  Or is there a bug where items in the list are finished but the
status says they are not?
Comment 5 Need Real Name 2005-07-26 12:40:03 EDT
The gui shows printed jobs in the print queue
It would be good if "Completed" job were not shown (after all, they're not in
any queue).
