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'm running Suse 9.1 Personal. I have an Epson Stylus CX5200 All-in-One Printer. When I installed Suse, it set up the driver and printing worked great. There is only one problem. Whenever I print something that is more than one page, the printer will print everything up through the last page, but the last page never gets completely ejected by the printer and the printer will continue to say "Printing..." on its small LCD screen. If I push the Stop button, it will say "Cancelling...", but stall there, also. If I try to print something else, it won't go through until I manually turn off the printer and then turn it back on. It just seems like Linux is not sending a "finished" signal to the printer. I am not sure how this works. Is this some bug or has anyone had problems with this? Thanks. Here is some technical info on the setup:
Here is /var/log/cups/error_log. All the lines except the last print out when I send the print job. It stalls on the line that says "Started backend". I then cancel it, but I still can't print until I manually restart the printer. I hope this was informative enough.
