Subject: [gentoo-user] CUPS: print jobs while others are being prepared?
Date: Tue, 13 Sep 2016 16:50:36
1 Hi,
3 is it possible to make cups print a job while another job is still
4 being processed, on the same printer?
6 Processing a large job can take quite some time, and the printer is
7 idle while the large job is being processed and other, smaller jobs,
8 are idly waiting in the queue for the large job to finish.
10 I want like a maximum of 20 jobs being processed at the same time so
11 that the printer can print the ones that have already been processed
12 immediately when their processing has finished.
14 Why should cups be limited to use only one CPU?
