Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am using GNOME desktop 2.14.3
The CUPS and foomatic drivers have been installed.
The printer light doesnt come on when the job is submitted..Only the power ON button is glowing..
So i checked for the connectivity of the printer using the dmesg command..and the output is as follows..
yash@debian:~$ dmesg | grep usblp0
drivers/usb/class/usblp.c: usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 2 if 0 alt 0 proto 2 vid 0x03F0 pid 0x2B17
So i understand that the printer is getting identified..
The printer is connected via USB and it is a local printer..
The printer works fine with windows..its not printing only in linux..
please let me know if there are any more debugging commands that should be tried out..
