Thanks for the help, but I was reading into CUPS and pykota, didn´t get
into it
that much right after I send this question out.

But all I wanted was a simple print job spool with a automatic pause, and resumed
only by the administrator.
I don´t think accounts will be good for 300 students, too much administration work
for a stress around type of solution.

If anybody know anything that can get to this result please tell me.

Hello Ramon,

Try this:


On the top menu click Printers.
Then stop the printer in question.

Once the printer is stopped folks can print but the jobs will stack up in the que.
Click on Jobs and you can cancel or hold print jobs in que for the various printers.

Then you can start the printer and what ever is not held or canceled will print.

hope that helps.
