Is it working? If so, I have no idea, but if its not, there is probably some
other problem and one of to things could have happened:

1) There is some error condition in the printer, and it signals it to
your box by saying "Out of paper".

2) The printer is sending some other error signal to your box, and the the
driver dont know what to say, so it says "lp1 out of paper".

Anyway, the messages will proably go away if you delete the printjob waiting
to be printed to that port.

Then again, I might be all wrong :)
