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'm on Debian with KDE 3.5 desktop and I use the Konsole terminal emulator.
What I would like to know is: is it possible to tweak the color palette, for example to change my red to something a bit brighter? I use the "white on black" schema in Konsole and all colors are great except that red is far too dark on the black background.
I found this Perl script that is supposed to change the palette but, while it prints the current palette just fine, I can see no difference between the various palettes.
Searching for solutions mostly brings up pages about changing the scheme in Konsole or how to use colors in prompts and ls output etc, which is not quite what I need.
Does anybody have a solution for this problem? Thanks a lot!
Thanks MTK358, unfortunately, this seems to be a KDE4 feature. My Konsole (in KDE 3.5) doesn't have a "Manage Profiles" menu entry. I can select a color schema in "configure Konsole" but I can't make changes to the color mappings, so that I could select a different red for example.
Unfortunately, upgrading to KDE4 is not an option on this machine at the moment, so I have to find a solution that works in KDE3.5.
In the "Configure Console" settings you'll find a tab titled "Schema". Start by entering a new title for your schema in the top field. Then in the left drop box you'll find the values you can change, such as foreground and background color, and in the right box you get the colors you can set them to, including "custom color". When you have the combination you want, just hit "save schema", and it will be available for use by your profiles.
oooooooh, I can't believe I missed that....
Yes, of course you are both right. The way to handle profiles is obviously a bit different in KDE3.5 and KDE4 but you can definitely do what I wanted to do in both.
The way David the H. described it was what I needed to do in my version of Konsole. Beats me now how I didn't realize that those drop down lists in "Settings"->"Configure Konsole"->"Schema" can be used to re-map the colours. Anyway, thanks again!
