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 have installed compiz on Debian. The effects are working too. But, I cannot view the Compiz Configuration Settings Manager (CCSM). I mean, do I have to install it separately? Please help me. I have spent at least 20 minutes in figuring out this.
Try pressing Alt+F2 and typing ccsm, if nothing happens or it says the program isn't there you'll have to download the program separately. In Debian distros it should be called "compizconfig-settings-manager" in your package manager.
Thanks for the reply. There is no such package in the package manager's list. Also, the command does not work as there is no such entry. Alt+F2 is the same right? I was not able to run it. What to do? Any more suggestions?
Ok I checked http://packages.debian.org they only have compizconfig-settings-manager in the newest "unstable" release so unless your running that release (or you take the package from their website) you'll have to compile it from source (which would mean you'd probably have to compile the rest of compiz-fusion to make sure its all in sync). So I'd suggest visiting http://packages.debian.org/sid/compi...ttings-manager for the package. Best of luck!
P.S. I have compiz-fusion running on Kubuntu compiled straight from git using Trevino's excellent makefusiondebs script. It'll work on any Debian or Debian-based system. You can get it from http://gitweb.opencompositing.org/?p...lder;a=summary, just run "git clone git://anongit.compiz-fusion.org/users/3v1n0/compiz-fusion-debian-builder" (after installing "git-core" first of course ).
Thank you very much. Well, if I use the unstable sid packages, I will have to upgrade a lot of existing libraries in order to cope up with that. I had tried that, but failed since updating many of the existing libraries into newer unstable versions creates problems. Anyway, I shall try out the other links that you have given. Thanks.
