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.

We've got a Panasonic DP-1820E printer at work, and I'm trying to get it working on an Ubuntu machine. Its a network printer, served through a wireless print server which also hosts an Epson Stylus Photo 1290, which works fine.
I've searched for a driver for the DP-1820E, but can't find anything online. I've got windows drivers for the Panasonic, so I was wondering whether I could create a PPD for this printer?
You may have already done this, but I am trying to get in the habit of asking the vendor where to get a linux driver. If nothing else, it helps raise consciousness of Linux.
Quick scan of Panasonic website shows drivers for that printer for Windows only--not even the Mac!!!
I did notice that - however I thought it better to correct the information and bring it to the attention of others that find this thread after searching (as I did), rather than just leave it.
