I have follow the instructions and get the build done with no problems, 
thanks for the step by step instructions. So far I only have found a 
couple of errors: on Chapter 7 Printing and Scanning, on the section 
about installing a scanner the suggested command for editing a file is 
/|gksudo mousepad /etc/sane.d/dll.conf |/|, on precise the default text 
editor is leafpad, so that needs to be changed. And under Chapter 5 
Media Applications it says "||If you try to play an unsupported video 
file, *Parole Media Player* may notify you of a missing plugin. You can 
then install this plugin by following the wizard" I am not really sure 
that Parole 0.3 (the one shipped with precise) has the |missing codec 
detection and installation wizard, but I can not test it, so maybe 
someone else can confirm it.

Hope this helps improving the documentation for precise.
