The command for removing jobs is:

	lprm

So if you just do

	lprm

this will remove all jobs from the default printer.

	lprm -P<printer_name>

Removes all jobs from printer printer_name

Another useful command is lpc, this allows you to interactively start/stop
daemons. If you run X-windows, then printtool is a nice programme to set
up printers.
