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 installed Ubuntu 11.04 yesterday, and some problems came up. Most of them are fixed, but one thing that still annoys me is that I can no longer reorder my open windows on the Gnome Panel. I used to be able to drag them back and forth to order them the way I like, but this is is not possible anymore. I also lost the possibility to drag a file from Nautilus, down to a window on the panel, so the window would open, and drop it in that window. Now nothing happens when I try this.
I did a pretty fresh install on my computer, deleting most of the hidden config folders in my home folder, as they have aquired a lot of crap over the years, but I can't remember having to activate this functionality manually before. What can I do to get it back?
