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 just try to print a text file in my home dir,the driver it says it is using is EPSON CL-700 cups+gimp-print v4.2.7 sending it to the printer.this is a different driver than I use in debian,I think I am close just missing something.I haven't booted in over a month,do I need to reboot to get cups started.When my prenter works it will startup when I boot other dist.If I don't hear it starting it won't print.Thanks again david
No Luck,I booted into debian and checked the settings and tested worked great only difference was the driver was 4.2.6 and this one is 4.6.7 the only other thing was there for location ipp://thrasher:631/printers/home and here http://localhost:631/printers/home?
