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.

The KDE screensaver doesn't work on my new Redhat 8 install. I know the individual screensavers exist, because they work fine if you click on the test button (in the screensaver control panel). I tried to set the screensaver to kick in after 3 minutes. However, after 3 minutes the screen just goes blank. Moving the mouse brings up the screensaver password prompt. I assume the problem is a permissions or path problem... any suggestions (including which logs mights have more information) would be greatly appreciated
This is an extract:

NOW MY RH8 KDE SCREENSAVERS WORK!!!
Let me know if this solution is useful for you too...
