Quick notes about printing in linux

What's the default printer?
$ lpq

List all printer queues and their status:
$ lpstat -a

Quick pretty output:
$ (OPERATION) | a2ps -E --printer=$NAME
$ a2ps -E file


-Euse nice pretty-printing
--printer=NAMEprint to print queue NAME instead of the default queue

Kill or cancel a job:

# cancel $JOB

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
