Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2006-05-02 08:11:39 EDT
Please edit /etc/cups/cupsd.conf and change the 'LogLevel' line to say:

  LogLevel debug2

Then stop cups with:

  /sbin/service cups stop

Empty out the error_log file with:


Then start cups again:

  /sbin/service cups start

Print two files to the printer, and then please attach /var/log/cups/error_log.
