I cant stop printing. Under printer options when I click stop button nothing happens. And when I turn printer off and back on then it keeps printing the unfinished job. Is there any other way to stop printing jobs? My printer is Samsung ml-1665

At the moment I haven't installed any driver from Samsung. I think my printer is supported out of the box and I wouldn't like to install anything else. I hope there is a better solution – quubik Jun 19 '12 at 14:48
Installing the official drivers from manufacturers is always a good idea when stuck. I dont get the fact that you do not want to try it? – dhojgaard Jun 20 '12 at 20:04
