Weird printing stuff

Hi guys, my printer (Epson Stylus C42UX) it works fine, but, when I turn it on, starts printing inmediatly!, what's printing?, my usual text mode working, for example:

(meshuggin:~$) pac-stats 
340
(meshuggin:~$) cpu-info 
 AMD Athlon(TM) XP 1500+

I just did that, If I print something else (OpenOffice document or wathever), before that prints the text I wrote in a terminal (Eterm).

What's going on?, any idea?

Re: Weird printing stuff

Are you using cups? If so, go to http://localhost:631 and see what jobs are listed.  Make sure any pending jobs are erased.  Otherwise maybe you have the wrong printer driver.  There are several drivers that will kind of work for any printer but only a smaller subset do the job right.

Re: Weird printing stuff

Yep I'm using cups and ... At this moment I've got 2 pending jobs, why is that?, also when I try to erase them I get:

Error:

    client-error-forbidden

I'm gonna check the driver thing. Thanxs

By default I think CUPS disallows access to print jobs.  You'll have to add something like this to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf

<Location /jobs>
AuthClass System
AuthType Basic
Allow From @LOCAL
</Location>

Restart CUPS and you should be able to clear and access those jobs.
