I've got a network (wireless) printer that stopped working after a jam.  
It won't work from two seperate linux boxes.  It's not the wireless 
connection, I can get online to the admin panel and print test pages, 
but won't print from the desktops.

The bit of diagnosis I can do would seem that perhaps a queue is stuck 
somewhere.  My linux control panel says variously that the printer is 
paused, or processing a file.

I've tried everything I can think of and that's all I got.  I want to 
say it's like in Windows when the printer goes offline, you can right 
click and uncheck the offline status, and the printer goes back online 
again.  Is there something similiar in linux?

(I haven't tried printing from a windows box, though I could boot up 
virtualbox and see if that works).
