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.

Well this is the first time I've been able to get so much working with Linux, however now my Printer isn't working! Went from Red Hat 9 to Slackware 9...when I connected to my Mac OS X box's CUPS printer server it worked fine, however under Slackware I specify the print server and I see the printer..however when I try to create a printer pointing to the remote one or if I try to set that remote one as the default this is what I get:
Unable to create printer. Error message received from manager:
The IPP request failed for an unknown reason.
I have no clue what's going on, I'm pretty sure it's on this end, being that my Windows XP partion can print to it, Red Hat 9 print to it fine when it was on here, and the computer that the printer is connected to works fine, any help would be appreciated thanks.
Oh and one more thing, according to KPackage, my Cups v. 220.127.116.11 package is missing /etc/cups/classes.conf.new, /etc/cups/client.conf.new, /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.new, /etc/cups/interfaces/, /etc/cups/mime.convs.new, /etc/cups/,mime.types.new, and last but not least /etc/cups/printers/conf.new
I can't tell you exactly what the problem is but what I did when I was having problems with CUPS was change the log level to debug2 in the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf file. Then restart cups, try and print something, and see if you can get a clue from the log files. I found it messy because debug2 logs EVERYTHING but at least you can step through it and see whats going on.
Ok got this working now too, but only from within KDE Applications, tried KPrinter but didn't seem to have any effect within netscape or vim(X-Window version), is there anyway to set up printing from within these applications?
