printing is a very frustrating thing for me. it is very intermittent and for seemingly no reason. it seems that files that i print get stuck in the /var/spool/lpd/myPrinter
this is what it currently looks like:

drwxrwx--- 13 daemon daemon 398 Jul 16 08:25 .
drwxrwx--- 3 daemon daemon 58 May 15 12:46 ..
-rw-rw---- 1 root daemon 4 Jul 16 08:25 .seq
-rw-rw---- 1 daemon daemon 139 Jul 12 09:30 cfA040localhost
-rw-rw---- 1 daemon daemon 145 Jul 12 09:32 cfA041localhost
-rw-rw---- 1 daemon daemon 154 Jul 12 11:55 cfA042localhost
-rw-rw---- 1 daemon daemon 119 Jul 16 08:25 cfA043localhost
-rw-rw---- 1 root daemon 770519 Jul 12 09:30 dfA040localhost
-rw-rw---- 1 root daemon 773455 Jul 12 09:32 dfA041localhost
-rw-rw---- 1 root daemon 226508 Jul 12 11:55 dfA042localhost
-rw-rw---- 1 root daemon 85135 Jul 16 08:25 dfA043localhost
-rw-rw-rw- 1 root daemon 20 Jul 11 09:14 lock
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root daemon 23 Jul 11 09:13 status

any clue on how i can fix this?

and when i view the printer job list in the print center these jobs don't appear.
