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.

This is my first question.
I have only been using Ubuntu 8.04, 9.04 and now 9.10. I love the new Ubuntu 9.10 version. The hardest thing with Linux for me was setting up my USB Brother 150c printer after getting the drivers from Brother.com.
I know that some Linux communities are assisting Google with Chrome OS. I was wondering how the USB printer issue would be solved. Would local USB printers will be turned into "network" Chrome printers with drivers supplied via Google? Or would there be some web plug and play system similar to the way printer drivers work with Windows 7?
Welcome to LQ.
If you have the drivers, printers usually appear on /dev/usb/lp0. Switch on the printer, then plug it into a port, give it a few seconds and type dmesg |tail to see what the kernel noticed.
