lpsched print scheduler is not running

lpsched print scheduler is not running

If the print service stops in the middle of a print job or does not start any new print jobs, determine if the /usr/lib/lpsched daemon is running. To do this, in the Printer Manager select Print Services from the System menu. The lpsched daemon is started automatically by a script in the /etc/rc2.d directory at system startup. 

If the scheduler is down, Local print service enabled is deselected. To start the lpsched daemon, select Local print service enabled.


NOTE: You must be root to start the print service.
