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.

Hello. I recently tried setting up my LaserJet 4L on my Slackware 9.0 box using the "Foomatic from the User's Point of View" document at linuxprinting dot org (sorry about that, I apparently can't put in url's because I'm new.)
I installed cups, installed the foomatic scripts, and set up my printer on the CUPS server by logging in via (http)://localhost:631
I printed a test page, and it seemed to work great. If I remember correctly, the printer printed on emacs and quite a few other apps... until I restarted. The restart really killed me. Somehow emacs will not print anything, nor lpr. But when I try to use lpr, I get the message
lpr: error - scheduler not responding!
Yet, when I log in to the CUPS printing system via (http):// localhost:631 and print a test page, everything works fine. In fact, I tried using the foomatic "alignmargins" tool, and it printed out an alignment page just fine.
Does anyone know what's going on? Am I missing some sort of link to the scheduler?
Any help or suggestions is appreciated.
