Resume My Printer

This post is just for my own archival use.

Ubuntu sometimes does not like my printer.  It will occasionally "pause" it without any obvious way to unpause..

The solution is to visit the http://localhost:631,
 then selecting the Printers tab,
  then clicking on the printer name,
   and then choosing Resume Printer from the Maintenance pull-down menu

Write a cronjob to run 'cupsenable your-printer-name' every 5 minutes.
