Well...here are some notes, tricks, some of these are specific to non-english speaking users and therefore not frequently answered in the common documentation. I hope these are useful for you now or sometime in the future.

Accents and others in Spanish for Emacs 

The only thing to do is to write in the file /.emacs the following:

Debian in Spain

Spanish users can get information on this Linux distribution at: http://www.virtualoffice.es/hispalinux or also at the following address: http://www.ediser.es/hispalinux 

StarOffice for Linux

There is a beta version of this Linux suite for free at this site: http://www.stardiv.com/staroffice/ 

At the moment they have available a static version, that is no Motif libraries needed.

Accents under Linux

To get accents working on your shell, create the file .inputrc in your home directory containing the following:
set meta-flag on

set output-meta on

set convert-meta off


export LC_CTYPE

Changing the Keyboard Map:

Would you like, for whatever reason, to change the keyboard mapping on your workstation?
Run this: 

where xxx.map is the new map you wish to load.

Handling Printing:

Let us review a series of commands to easily handle the printer queue.
  • The command "lpq" lets you examine the printer queue. With the -l option we get a full listing of information of the jobs queued, 
  • lpq  -l
  • "lprm" lets you remove jobs queued in the printer spool for printing, 
  • lprm [-Pprinter] [-] [user] [#]
    Between the brackets are optional parameters. The option "-" deletes all the jobs on the printer spool specified by -P. If -P is not given, then it will use the default printer. To delete a specific job number use the "#" option, the job number is given by the system when you print the file. Finally "lpc", lets you check the state of the printer and controls some aspects of its use.
