Linux printing appeared to be working fine up until yesterday. Today typing lpq gives the following:
lpq Printer 'firstname.lastname@example.org' - cannot open connection - Connection timed out Make sure LPD server is running on the server
The /etc/cups/printers.conf file is properly set, the printers appear in localhost:631 and they are printing test pages. However, all command line print commands seem to be trying to print to email@example.com
I don't know why printers.conf is being ignored and why and how firstname.lastname@example.org was added. Seems like it might have been auto-discovered?#
edit: email@example.com was mentioned in /usr/local/etc/lpd.conf I'm not sure why lpd.conf is being used instead of /etc/cups/printers.conf
Any suggestions or any idea how cups can be used instead?
