Hi,
maybe this looks being trivial...
I made some trials and searches to get a black and white printer among the various CUPS setups; and named that printer CUPS-B&W.

I cannot delete that printer using the cups print manager/printers/delete printer; nor typing a command line in a console:

Code:
# lpadmin -x CUPS_B&W
lpadmin: delete-printer failed: client-error-not-found
[1] 22045
bash: W: command not found
[1]   Exit 1                  lpadmin -x CUPS_B
#


I went and see on
http://209.85.229.132/search?q=cache:or_utfnig3EJ:www.cups.org/articles.php%3FL273%2BTFAQ%2BQ+client-error-not-found&cd=2&hl=fr&ct=clnk&gl=be
and found:
Code:
Why Am I Getting Client-Error-Not-Found:

This is the error message which CUPS gives you when you specified a non-existing file to print or a non-existing printer. Listing

as there is no job, I conclude that the printer does not exists...?
here is a list of my printers
Code:
# lpstat -p -d
printer CANON_MP160 is idle.  enabled since Jan 01 00:00
printer CUPS-PDF is idle.  enabled since Jan 01 00:00
printer CUPS_B&W disabled since Jan 01 00:00 -
        No pages found!
printer e-FAX is idle.  enabled since Jan 01 00:00
system default destination: CUPS-PDF
#


I wonder if the "&" character in the name CUPS_B&W could be the "black sheep" here?
then I do not know what to do.
Any idea?
Thanks for answer, Cheers, Charlie

Go to /etc/cups and open the file printers.conf.

Delete the section that refers to your PDF printer.

Restart CUPS.
