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.

Just installed Ubuntu. It's my first experience with Linux.
Everything works great except I can't seem to get at my printers via the D-Link DPR-1260 Wireless print server.
I go though the printer setup dialogs to set this thing up as an LPD printer, and I end up with a "Device URI" of
This returns -"Processing - Connecting to Printer" in the Printer State and it seems to never complete that. I get a exclamation point/yellow triangle on the printer icon, and the print jobs just sit there in queue.
Instead of the ip address, I have tried using "DPR1260" and "dlink-fbfce8" and every permutation I can think of. These are listed as the Device Name on the DPR1260'S device info page, but those return "Unable to locate printer DPR1260/dlink-fbfce8" messages when I try to use them instead of the ip.
The printer works fine when direct connected to the computer.
It works fine from my wife's Windows computer. I do have LPD enabled on the DPR1260.
