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 am trying yet again to get printing working under Slack
I have tried to set APSfilter but whichever printer I choose it just prints out pages of code when I test, and if I try to print after accepting this I get the same code.
Under Ghost my printer is not listed, however under gimp the Epson 760 is listed but if I choose it, it tells me that gimp wsa compiled without my driver. Do I just download gimp source and compile over the top (or remove gimp first), or is there a way to just add the driver!
Well, GNU Ghostscript only goes up to 7.05, if you have version 8.0 then you have AFPL Ghostscript, but I think you should try ESP Ghostscript, which has more up-to date gimp-print support.
Have a look here for some more info on all three flavours of ghostscript.
