For startingi paused printer again after paper out error I have little 
script, whitch I run every minute in my school.

The script is there, save it as /root/startagain.sh:

/usr/bin/enable `/usr/bin/lpstat -p | /bin/grep disabled | /usr/bin/cut  -f 2 -d " "`

You must make it executable, so this command is *chmod +x 

And with *crontab -u root -e* write this line:

0-59 * * * * /root/startagain.sh

It executables then once per minute shis script. If printer is paused, 
then enables it again

Answer to the second question:
After deleting files from /var/spool/squid (and not the tmp directory) 
you must restart cups:
service cups restart

This link is to page in estonian but blue lines and bold text are 
english commands anyway.
