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.

Anyway, I still find it strange this is mounted in a new directory. What's wrong with good ol' /media/bla ?
It came from udisks2 multi-seat patch. I guess in multi-seat setup it's reasonable and useful, although I don't get why udisks can't simply do the same permission magic in /media. Lennart Poettering isn't the bad guy this time, but well, patch came from another Red Hat guy, so you'll never know
Patched to fix compiling against v4l-utils.
Changed udev rules to use group lp instead of scanner. It turns out that
this is likely what's been interfering with printer detection since we
switched CUPS to use libusb instead of the usblp kernel module. SANE
would come along and switch the group on multifunction printer/scanners
to "scanner", and then CUPS would no longer be able to use them. The
kernel module wasn't affected by this since it didn't use the raw USB
device node and didn't care who owned it. Anyway, making this switch
gets things pretty close to how they were before. The good news is that
printers should be detected and configurable without having to look at
lsusb output or writing custom udev rules, however, users will need to
be in group lp in order to use the scanner. We'll do this automatically
for console logins.
The user gets automatically added indeed to the 'lp' group. Only the 'adduser' dialog still shows the old list of groups, without lp. Maybe add it for consistency's sake.
