*That's* the problem! Even the simplest thing becomes
difficult! I don't understand how to use lpd, lpr, lpc,
lprm, printcap, etc, etc, etc. Very much details...
But, the worst thing in Linux, its complexity, is too its
best aspect. That's make the job funny ;-)
I really think that could be a "happy-administrators-guide.ps",
with things like: "Well, you have Linux in your computer.
You want to make Linux usable. Then, do these simple steps..."
So, again, how can I make my printer work? It's connected. It's
online. It's working in Windows. It's working in DOS. I've the
packages installed. So? :-)
