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. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. 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.

i downloaded a java game and i think i have to do something with the .jar fiiles to install/play it. the problem is, i don't know what to do. i've figured out .bin's and .rpm's but i don't have any idea how to use java files.
open a console and type $PATH
this returns all variables set in PATH. The PATH enables you to call a binary in e.g. /usr/bin without specifying the whole path of the binary.
you can add a directory to your PATH - var in your ".bash_profile" like this:
- open a console
- type: kwrite ~/.bash_profile &
- append: export PATH=$PATH:</directoy/to/your/jre/bin/folder> (without the brackets)
- save it
it might be nescessary to relogin in your gnome/kde.
now i'm installing a bin file and it says that the java vm is not in my path
in the terminal i typed:
then i put the path of jvm at the end, this is what is in the file:
# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
# User specific environment and startup programs
export USERNAME BASH_ENV PATH
export PATH=$PATH: /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/bin
i put it on the last line
and when i type $PATH i don't see it listed
