Q. I have two queues. Under Windows it is very easy to move a print job from one queue to another. But how do I move a print job from one queue to another under Linux computer or server?
A. You need to use lpmove command which is use to move a job or all jobs to a new destination i.e. from one queue to another queue. Job can be the job ID number or the old destination and job ID.
For example, if you have a job called FOO on the queue called Q1 and wanted to move it to Q2, then type following command:
# lpmove FOO Q2
You can specify username using -U option:
# lpmove -U vivek FOO Q2
- -U vivek: Specifies an alternate username (vivek)
You can also use webbased user interface instead of command line:
