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.

Need your help in sorting out 'printing in broader print width' on 132 column paper, using redHAT Linux 9.0 / OpenOffice ver 1.1.
I have installed Linux redHAT 9.0 and OpenOffice 1.1 on it. I have document in spreadsheet that is having many columns. I need to print it on 132 column printer. Same document prints 132 columns in MS Windows/ Excel Office Suite Software printing all (and as many columns as required).
Now, when I print using Linux/OpenOffice setup, it does print all required columns. But, paper width in which it prints all characters that it takes is too less. It prints it in almost 65% of the width (as compared to width occupied in MS Windows/Excel case).
I have used Epson C' driver software in Linux case. Resulution is 180*180.
When I use A4 size paper, print width occupied in that case, is same as in case of MS Windows/Excel case. There is no problem in that case.
Prints same information in 'lesser width' of the paper. I need it to print same amount of informaiton by 'occupying wider space' along the same line.
I request if any one can throw light on 'by using what other alternatives' can I solve problem?
