<blockquote>We all know that Ubuntu is the OS my mother would use if… oh well, my mother already uses it! And my father too! But one last piece was missing : a real book for the beginner. A complete “hitchhiker’s guide” to Ubuntu, from the installation to Synaptic, with Firefox, Evolution, OpenOffice.org and, of course, the philosophy and the community behind Ubuntu.</p></blockquote>
<p>So three Ubunteros, Benoit Caccinolo, Lionel Dricot (aka Ploum) and Joyce Markoll decided to do something about it, and wrote the new book in French, <a href="http://www.eyrolles.com/Accueil/Livre/9782212116083/">“Ubuntu, la distribution facile à installer”</a>. </p>
<p>You can read more about it on the Ploum’s <a href="http://ploum.frimouvy.org/?2006/01/06/88-ubuntu-le-livre">blog</a> or read his <A href="http://www.editions-vm.com/Interview/Lionel-Dricot/">interview</a> about the book. Of course, it’s all in french mes petits amis. He hopes to see translations available soon…</p>

Si j'écrivais un livre portant sur l'installation d'Ubuntu avec Espresso, ce ne serait qu'un tout petit dépliant.

If I were to write a book about installing Ubuntu with Espresso, it could only be a small pamphlet...

I'm sure it is a great book and very good for Ubuntu popularity. I just wanted to pimp how excellent Espresso is, again....

Easy to install, but not for my HP G85 USB printer. I got the message "Impression : open print channel failed; will retry in 30 seconds.."

I desintall it, and reinstall it few time, and it is detected as local printer, even twice as G-85 and G. but it cannot print the test page, i rebooted, ans still cannot get the page to print.

In the same time i have the laserjet 4000 on the network working fine with the jetdirect option.

Any idea why ubuntu cannot open the print channel ??

Thanks in advance.

It should work fine with the HP drivers available. Please start a new thread in the hardware help section.
