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 trying to configure my system to use a network printer (for which I have the IP address). I am attempting to do this through the use of the Print Manager Wizard (KDE, Suse 9.2 Pro). Here is what I am selecting in the wizard:
Configure Printer: Network (TCP)
(set the IP and Port ... scanning shows the printers that I want)
skip a few screens about banners and denied users
results: a kdewallet login appears and asks for a login ... after entering that info an error box pops up ...
Authentication failed (user name=tju) Do you want to retry?
clicking OK on the box then results in another error box ...
Unable to create printer. Error message received from manager:
You are not authorized to access the requested resource.
Trying other printers and types results in the same final message (the kdewallet message doesn't appear again, I gues because I clicked save password).
Can anyone help me out ... I'm a linux newbie, so I'm not sure what to do from here.
Almost immediately after having posted this, someone here turned me on to YaST for installing printers (like I said, I'm a newbie). Using Yast was a breeze and actually worked ... wow. The selections were exactly the same as the PM wizard, but didn't come up with the errors (and yes, I've printed now so I know it is really working). Don't know what the difference was, but now I know to try everything in Yast first.
I realize this is a couple of months old, but I'm hoping that maybe I can revitalize the question, as I'm having the same problem. I can't even configure the printer in YaST. I'm thinking that the printer is fairly new, so maybe that's the problem?
I'm using SUSE 9.3 Pro and a HP LaserJet 1012 that's directly connected to the network using a network print server with a static IP address. Anyone have a clue?
I also connect this same machine to the lab networks at school, and am able to print to their LaserJets with no problems. I configure them via YaST, as well. They are LaserJet 4000 Series printers. Somewhat older models, so this is why I think maybe the driver is an issue.
