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.

Im using kubuntu 10.04
The printer icon will appear and disappear
went into /ect/cups/printers.conf and JobSheets none none is there
turned cups on and off
uninstalled and reinstalled cups
im using a hp deskjet 1000 series j110a
Okay, in steno:
- start the webbrowser with 127.0.0.1:631, if it is a network printer, enter the IP address of the machine/server the printer is bolted on to
- add the printer (follow the wizard)
- locally, go to System-Administration-Printing
- add the same printer with the same settings
- if it is a printer on the network, make sure it's shared
- locally, enter the address ipp://ip.address and hit the test button
- if all is well, the printer should make itself available
- do a test print (openoffice, write, big graphical page)
things to check:
- if you want to add the printer remotely, the apache server has to be set up for that
- get the gutenprint driver pack, it's sure to have a suitable driver
at least make sure the printer works on the machine it's linked to (in case of a network printer) before installing it on a client...
step by step. what machine is the thing hooked on to? the local one or one on the network?
PS can you to chat? if so, this could be something to do in the chat...
I'll w8 @ Dalnet channel #belgique for a while...
