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.

Thanks, but it does not give me something I could work on. You must understand that people are too busy doing their laundry, taking kids to school, washing the dishes, cooking food, working, stuff, that there usually is so little time to fiddle around with the gears and knobs.
I understand that for linux theres a learning curve to doing things. But I am just an average guy who needs to print. Ok you could ask me to install you could ask me to find the driver if need be - but you couldn't ask me to twiddle dee and twiddle dum about the little details.
I just want my printer to work.
I can't afford windows.
I have less than average attention span in looking at things that are probably irrelevant to my existence.
I don't want you to tell me that Linux is not for me because of what I just said above.
I like Linux. I LOVE Linux. But I don't like twiddling and reading for 2 hours to install my printer.
A printer is for printing. I don't want to learn about it as much as you would like to learn about how baby diapers are made and what chemicals turn their pee into jelly.
I was trying to help. It was never my intention to be one of the "RTFM" crazies that are less than helpful.
You have given no information as to what you have tried to do to get the printer working, so there is little anyone but you can do to try to install it. So, when you have calmed down, did you try clicking on the link I posted above? What happened? What did you do? Options you are unsure of? Post it all here and maybe someone can help.
Hey- no problem.
Ok, lets see what I can help with. I am no expert for sure (I am trying to get my printer working with no responses, not even the ones to tell me what to read )
Try deleting the printer you added before :
go to the localhost page thing
use the "printers" tab, delete printer.
Next go to the "administration" tab
under printers, click "find new printers"
We want to see if the printer can be found all by itself, hopefully taking some of the guess work out of setting it up.
lotsa hits, no responses. If I want to print, I have to flip over to Fedora ( where wireless doesn't work!!Thats another story though) and use it there, or plug it in to my windoze laptop. Sometimes I wonder about all this....
I actually used EPSON C68 as the driver. Hindi ako makakita ng C90. After ko sundin yung instructions niya - pinili ko lang yung C68. Trans: After I followed his instructions - I chose the driver for C68. So basically my C90 was pretending to be a C68.
Btw welcome to the world of linux. Its nice to here fellow Filipinos trying Linux. Man its hard specially if you are not IT trained - like me. Be prepared to face blank walls - many of them in fact. But once you get down to it - Linux helps you get a clear conscience when it comes to piracy hehehe.
