Trying with cups turned on doesn't help either. To make it clear what I am
complaining about, I am not saying you can't print, rather that you can't
list print jobs queued to print on the server. If you send a print job, it
is listed immediately after you send it, possibly while it is still being
transmitted, but shortly after it disappears, regardless as to whether it
is actually printed.
