I have Ubuntu 12.04 running on a Toshiba Satellite Pro L870X. I am trying to print to a Canon LPBP5360 network printer using CUPS.

Up until recently this was working fine. Now (over the past 2 or 3 weeks) every time that I try to print something it prints out multiple copies until I stop the printer and flush its print queue. This happens even though I ensure that print only 1 copy is chosen/selected. I have tried this in Chrome, Open Office Writer and Open Office Calc all with the same problem so I don't believe that it is an application issue. I have un-installing and re-installing the printer in CUPS. I have removed and re-installed CUPS and then added the printer again but without any improvement.

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
