  • How To Install Canon Printer Driver on Ubuntu - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Canon Printer Driver on Ubuntu. For those of you who didn’t know, Canon is one of the largest printer manufacturers in the world, unfortunate canon never includes Linux / Ubuntu driver in each product that we buy, in other words, the Printer driver only available in Windows and macOS. Canon did release some printer drivers for Linux, but the majority of Canon printer owners were out of luck.

    This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you through the step-by-step installation of the Canon Printer Driver on Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 18.04, 16.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.

  • A production guide to automating and managing SSH server configuration with RHEL system roles

    In the previous post, I covered how to get started with the sshd Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) System Role, which can help you automate and manage your SSH server configuration across your RHEL environment. This is important because having a properly configured and secured SSH server is a key component of securing a RHEL system.

    I intentionally made the first part of this series very simple by specifying the role variables directly in the playbook. This requires editing the playbook any time the variables need to be updated or changed. A better method would be to store the role variables in the inventory, which I will cover in this post.

    I also had the same SSH server configuration applied to all of my hosts in the previous post. However, in the real world, there are frequent exceptions to be made and servers with special requirements that need to deviate slightly from the usual configuration.

    Thus, in this post, I will also cover how to override settings for servers that need a slightly different configuration.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
