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.

After a few days of searching, I still haven't found a solution for this one.
openSUSE 11.2 32-bit
I am having a problem with xfdesktop, the desktop manager in Xfce. I have checked to make sure that my directories are set up properly, and I have modified some of the config files manually, but I haven't gotten anywhere. The problem I am having is that what I see on my desktop and what I see in my Desktop folder are not in sync. When I create a new file in my Desktop folder, it doesn't show up on the desktop until I log out and back in again. The same thing happens when I delete something, it stays on my desktop until I log out and back in again.
Is anyone else having this problem? At first, I didn't notice. Then I thought it would be fixed in an update or something, but it's been almost a month and now it's really driving me nuts.
Oh, sorry about that! And yes, all of the components are loaded when I log in. That's the part I don't get. So far, this problem seems unique to opensuse. Now that I notice it, I find it really annoying. In the mean time, is there any program I can use to replace xfdesktop? I just need something to manage my icons. I thought about using pcmanfm, like LXDE does. fbdesk and idesk, are out of the question though because they are not available in the opensuse repos. I would also like to avoid nautilus, as that would defeat the purpose of using Xfce.
