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 have a problem printing. I run mandrake 9.1 with kde 3.1. When I try to print in a KDE apps they crash. The message I get is "this app has crashed and caused a singal 11 (sigsegv):
I have ran red carpet and my system is up to date according to it.
Printing is a bitch in linux if you don't have a postscript printer. I myself don't know a whole lot about it, I'm afraid. I've had a brief look at it and it looks rather complicated. You can try using cups. It seems to be the bomb.
I have a hp 5550 printer, and it is setup to use cups. Mandrake can print the test page, and old programs like xfig can print too. Other programs just crash when I open the print dialog. The programs give the error in my previous post.
I'm afraid I can't help you. I've never printed anything under linux. I've got a canon printer which I use under windows only. Admittedly I've never tried very hard to get it to print but all my efforts have failed.
