Start printer jobs

How can I start the printer queue automatically if it stops?

(I need to print about one thousand sheets, unfortunately each page is a separate job. The printer queue stops every once in a while, all I need to do is start it automatically as I want to run the printing at night.)


You can do it if you are on OS X 10.3 with GUI scripting. Other than that I don’t know if its possible. I’ve tried to do the same as you have but I think that the property that controls the job status is read only. If you have OSX 10.3 Let me know and I’ll send you some code.


Hi Matt,

I am using 10.3 - sorry, I didn’t think to include OS info. Many thanks for the help.
