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.

Hello. My kde desktop shamelessly looks very similar to gnome shell.
In the panel, i have adjusted my digital clock settings so the 'date format' is set to 'Long date'.
This shows the digital clock in this order;
Time,AMPM, Day of the week, Day of the month, Month, Year
Currently as i type this, like below.
12:52 AM Friday, 31 Aug 2012
(Yes i know that it's wrong)
I would like the time to display after the year instead, like below:
@Knightron: You can modify the formats in System Settings->Locale->Country/Region & Language Settings->Date & Time. By clicking the wrench iconed button as well beside the "Date Format" selection, you could access it as well.
Thanks for your detailed instructions konsolebox. Unfortunately i've already been in that area of settings; but i am still unsure on how to change the appearance so the time is displayed after the year, opposed to before the day of the week, in the Long date format.
I'm not sure that you can do what you want in KDE. In Gnome I have "18:40 Friday 31 August" and in Xfce "18:40 Fri 31/8" over 3 lines, but I've never discovered how to do that sort of thing in KDE. Searching their website and forum doesn't help.
It's like setting keyboard shortcuts to launch applications. This, of course, is done via the menu editor, but if you search the help that just takes you to the keyboard shortcuts configuration tool, which is for a different type of shortcut.
