Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration.

They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Installing the img2pdf software turned out to be a very difficult task for me since I am not familiar with programming. The hardship could have been significantly reduced if better installation documentation were available, but that did not appear to be the case. Since I was able to successfully...
