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.

kups is a GUI frontend for configuring a printer with CUPS. Think of it as like a printer setup wizard. It comes with KDE but you can still run it even if you use another DE/WM. You did install KDE and CUPS right?
Install CUPS and gimp-print, configure your printer by going to http://localhost:631 and select your printer model from the gimp-print drivers, you'll find that the gimp-print epson driver will give you better quality than the windows driver does.
Hey, thanks for all of the advice. I cant find kups but I know it should be there because i installed everything for KDE that came with RH 7.2. Aussie, I cant connect to that link that you posted, I dont know why.:smash:
Now I got it to print but its spitting out page after page of text. All I wanted to say was "this is a test" I used Kword and hit print and I get solid pages of text. Looks like some kind of code. Something about prolog copywright trolltech? I hate to have to go back to ms just to print something, please help.
I'll have more dumb questions later
Still no luck. When I try to install gimp print I get this message, libncurses.so.4 is needed by gimp-print-4.2-1
libreadline.so.3 is needed by gimp-print-4.2-1
Where can I find these redources and what is the easiest way to get this thing up and running? I checked Red Hats site and they didnt have anything close and RPM find had some things that were close but not exactly the same file name. Why do I have to do this anyway. Please help. I know I must be close because the printer is printing, its just not printing what I want it to and once it starts it wont stop! Should I try a differant printer?
Ive been using the printconf utility. I tried installing gimp print but got frustrated with trying to find all of the dependencies of the dependencies. I am realy going nowhere with this. Sorry but Im realy getting frustrated that I cant figure this out.
