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.

Okay folks I need some help. I have converted all my computers in my house to Linux except my wife's. I have her using Mozilla and Open office on XP but I cant convert her machine over until I find a photo printing application for her. I need to find a great and easy to use photo printing software that will also interface with my Canon PowerShot (Elph) 400. I already have a working Firewire card so it needs to support that.
Gimp is awesome but is to much of an overkill for her. She currently uses Roxio's PhotoSuite 5 but the only features she uses is the printing portion. She wants to be able to chose the type of prints (3x5, 4x6, etc), chose the pictures, and have them print out on our HP Photosmart 1100.
I've done some research but have not found anything that seems easy to use.
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. And just think you will be helping put Linux (most likely Suse 9.1 or 9.2 Pro) on another Desktop.
I believe Open Office Draw will allow you to size and layout multiple photos on a page, however, not as easy as Windoz XP built in photo printing wizard. Haven't found anything as easy as that yet for Linux, but I'm impatiently waiting! Hope this helps.
I've found that digiKam is nice . It uses the gPhoto2 camera libraries. Make sure you have these libraries installed (your distro should have it...but you never know). Then install digikam, plugin your camera, and start DigiKam .
In Digikam go to the "Album" menu, then select "Export...", then "Print Wizard".
This gives you the choice of about 7 image sizes. Two of those are for printing a sheet of thumbnails.
I had seen Digikam before in Mandrake and now on Suse but had not played with it. One of the main reasons for it was to download images from your camera. To save the camera batteries, I just use a card reader, so I didn't explore this program more.
From the Windows side, I have used HP's Photo Printing software which lets you print pages of various size photos.
