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 using Slackware 9.1 and i wanna try to use my HPOfficeJet G85 using parallel port.
My linux box is used also as samba server so i would like to print from any MS client
using the box as print server.
I recompile the kernel 2.6.6 and attach to parralel print port my HP.
At startup i see:
kernel: parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778) [PCSPP,TRISTATE,EPP]
kernel: parport0: irq 7 detected
kernel: parport0: Printer, Hewlett-Packard OfficeJet G85
So i think it's all right. Then i install LPRNG software and create a queue.
When i check if it's all right after editing printcap file using checkpc -f command, it
gives to me that response:
Warning - HPDeskjet: cannot open lp device '/dev/parport0' - Permission denied
if i change permissione that respose:
Warning - HPDeskjet: cannot open lp device '/dev/parport0' - No such device or address
So when i try to print using a WindowsClient i obtein the same above result:
opening device '/dev/parport0' at 2004-05-13-19:11:32.335 ## A=nobody@nettuno+188 number=188 process=228
cannot open '/dev/parport0' - 'Permission denied', attempt 1, sleeping 10 at 2004-05-13-19:11:32.336 #
or with right permission:
opening device '/dev/parport0' at 2004-05-13-19:22:42.358 ## A=nobody@nettuno+443 number=443 process=468
cannot open '/dev/parport0' - 'No such device or address', attempt 1, sleeping 10 at 2004-05-13-19:22:42.359
I'm going mad =/ please any good advice will be very appreciated
Thanks a lot
