PySpool is a handy LPRng printer spool manager. It is part of another project of mine, called PyPrint. You should see my official PyPrint home page for more detailed information on this tool:



HELP: PySpool

The IceWM Control Panel (IceWMCP) PySpool tool allows you to easily manage the printer spool on your system . This tool requires LPRng
( to be installed on your system . Other printing systems, such as CUPS, are not supported by this tool .

Viewing Printers
To view a specific printer, select the printer's name from the list 'Select Printer:' , then click the 'View' button . If no printer's are listed, PySpool was unable to find any printers on your system .

Printer Jobs Window
