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.

So, browsing through Synaptic's packages, I saw that there was a file for gaim, but not one for Pidgin. The gaim one doesn't work, obviously, but does anyone know if there is a plan for Pidgin to be added as a package? I'm fairly tired of Kopete and I enjoyed Pidgin when I used it.
Or is there a nice tutorial on how I can install Pidgin with the source files?
It can't find some of the packages needed to install libgtk+2.0 devel...
Why is that?
What can't find libgtk+2.0 devel? If you are referring to pidgin that message means you need to add that package. Search for it with your Synaptic package manager and install it, then re-run the ./configure command.
Eh, I found it in a different repository. So that's okay. I got everything set up and installed. Now I'm having the problem of locating an SSL that will work for Pidgin so that I can configure gtalk and MSN, do you know of one?
