http://askubuntu.com – I want to stop CUPS service on my 12.04 ubuntu: sudo service cups stop it's stopped. I check it's status by : chkconfig it's off but /var/log/cups size is still increasing by a large amount each minute. I am running out of disk space, what can I do to stop this? ls -lhS /var/log/cups/ | head total 1.5G -rw-r----- 1 root adm 1.5G Jan 7 12:50 error_log -rw-r----- 1 root adm 8.1M Jan 7 11:14 error_log.1.gz -rw-r----- 1 root adm 587 Dec 30 07:37 access_log.1.gz -rw-r----- 1 root adm 259 Dec 29 07:59 aacess_log.2.gz -rw-r----- 1 root adm 258 Dec 28 07:41 aacess_log.3.gz -rw-r----- 1 root (HowTos)
