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 on my third day since the install of Kubunto dapper on my computer.
I am trying to connect my printer (canon multipass f20) through the usb port using the add printer menu TO NO AVAIL.
All the posts I have found everywhere presume the problem is a bad driver, but my problem perhaps, if not certainly, due to my ignorance is that there is no option listed under usb for the printer... despite the fact that I can see it under the list of usb devices in Kinfo center.
I suppose I may need a step by step here...
The only way it allows me to even try to add a printer is with CUPS selected, so I suppose this is the right start...
My choice of words was perhaps unfortunate - the printer is always ON... what I meant by wakeup is that it enters printer mode when it hears from the PC on the usb line - else it remains in copier or scanner mode which explains maybe why kubunto cannot recognize it as a printer... I think without a very specific driver i may be heading up a very nasty creek without a paddle...
