I have a print job that uses ghostscript as a filter to print a composite ps file. This file produces errors to the /var/log/cups/error_log and is not being removed from the queue even after 1 day (from the cupsd.conf)

Until I debug the ps error, is there a configuration option to remove those print jobs from cups? I know you can use cancel -a but this is integral to a system that cannot be accessed thru ssh constantly.

I tried using the setting of MaxJobTime 300 and PreserveJobFiles 300 to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf but I don't see anything working properly.

I am using 9.26~dfsg+0-0ubuntu0.16.04.11 ghostscript version and 2.1.3-4ubuntu0.10 cups.
