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.

Unfortunately, Apple has decided to hand over the support of many CUPS filters to The Linux Foundation OpenPrinting Project, which is also responsible for CUPS PPDs. On the one hand, this is probably a good thing, since an independant body whose mandate is to support every kind of printer known to man is also more likely to support all MIME types known to man.
The unfortunate part is that the filter for banner pages has been handed over to the OpenPrinting Project. The really unfortunate part is that the printer test page is also a banner. This means that, when you install CUPS from source, and set up a printer, you can't print a test page to see if the printer works.
guest@porteus:~/cups-filter$ su ./cups-filters.SlackBuild
No passwd entry for user './cups-filters.SlackBuild'
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/tmp/build/package-cups-filters’: Permission denied
Any turnaround? I would like to run ./cups-filters.SlackBuild in root mode.
