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.

I finally got my HP PSC 1315v printer to work after getting all the dependinces installed and then the HPLIP driver. When I run Xsane it finds my Scanner just fine but if I try to "acquire preview" or "scan" it is just freezes on me and I have to force quit the program. Once it closes after a force quit if I try to run it again it won't, I have to reboot the computer inorder to open Xsane again. I searched the internet for a solution but have found nothing. Some threads I have read suggest to disable "quality calbriation" in the "standard options window". When I open the "standard options window" all I get is text saying "SANE" there are no options to check/un-check. After Xsane freezes on me I get this messeage in dmesg:
printer.c: usblp0: nonzero read/write bulk status received: -2
I would greatly appreciate any help anyone could give me. I am using slackware 10.1
I first tired this with the Xsane that Slackware installed for me durring the OS installation which was Xsane version 0.96. Then I thought maybe if I unistalled Xsane with pkgtool and then install the newer 0.97 version it might fix the problem, but it didn't.
