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.

probably i miss something,
so what i do,
1. open in Firefox http://localhost:631/printers
2. click on "printers", then on "modify printer"
3. Name: MY-PRINTER
Description: EPSON Stylus C42UX
4. press Continue
5. Device --> i open menu and choce "USB Printer #1 (EPSON Stylus C42)"
7. Make: EPSON
9. Model: EPSON Stylus Color Series CUPS v1.1 (en)
Printer MY-PRINTER has been modified successfully.
What I did wrong or is there something that i miss?
Run the lpadmin command with the -p option to add a printer to CUPS:
/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p printer -E -v device -m ppd ENTER
For a HP DeskJet printer connected to the parallel port this would look like:
/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p DeskJet -E -v parallel:/dev/lp1 -m deskjet.ppd ENTER
Similarly, a HP LaserJet printer using a JetDirect network interface at IP
address 126.96.36.199 would be added with the command:
/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p LaserJet -E -v socket://188.8.131.52 -m laserjet.ppd ENTER
As you can see, deskjet.ppd and laserjet.ppd are the PPD files for the HP DeskJet
and HP LaserJet drivers included with CUPS. You'll find a complete list of PPD files
and the printers they will work with in Appendix C, "Printer Drivers".
And sorry, I'm not going to read Appendix C to find your
model. Another alternative for you may be to download
foomatic, and use foomatic-configure. Foomatic has a
much bigger printer-database and will allow you to choose
from a very rich list of models (foomatic can configure
CUPS printers very well).
