Early this month I got new credentials for our printer at the office, a Canon
iR2270. No big deal so far. One just has to change the entries for
DefaultUserID in the corresponding config file
The test page was printed without any problems but then I got stuck due to weird behavior of evince. I couldn’t print any PDF files from evince. The printer still received my job with the old credentials and thus refused to print anything.
Turns out: evince creates a new file where it stores some
printer settings including the credentials:
Unfortunately this file is not updated if the credentials in the primary
config file change… dunno if this is a bug or a feature.
Anyway, after deleting the
print-settings file everything works fine, again.
fyi: I’m currently on Ubuntu 15.04 and evince 3.14.2
