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'm not able to get the Gimp to print anything, but particularly would like it to print my photos using my hp Deskjet 5550. gThumb will print photos, all apps will print but Gimp will not. I have usr/share/doc/gimp-print-4.2.4
installed. Does anyone have any advice?
Thank you Steve! At last, someone using Gimp, Redhat , and the 5550.
Which settings, where ? I ask a given picture to print, Gimp goes through its cycle and nothing happens. I have Gimp set to print using the hp settings from the hp website for the 5550. The 900 series driver; and this command "lp -s -dPRINTER -oraw" or " lp -s -dprinter -oraw", which is how my 5550 command is setup. One is usb and the other is parallel , which shouldn't matter to the Gimp as it doesn't to any other program.
Lo and behold the beauty and the magic! I downloaded the newest driver from hp, installed as per RH9 instructions from that sight, told the Gimp where to look, and now it prints, but only 1/3 of the picture. So I assume I must study the Gimp more to find out how to size a pic?
What seems to be happening is a conflict between the paper size settings in the Gimp and the system-wide settings. I need to set my paper size system-wide, (I use KPrinter) before printing in the Gimp. otherwise the same things happen
