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 have difficulties in cleanly shutdown or logout from within kde, as nothing happens when I click any buttons on the kdm logout window.
The kdm logout window just disappears and no shutdown, no logout happens.
In the meantime I found some more strange things: there is absolutely way to logout by the first attempt. By the second attempt I can succeed if (and only if) I hold down the left mouse button on the OK button of the kdm logout window for cca. 3-5 seconds before releasing it. If I release it before 3s or after 5s then it will fail again, and no further logout attempts will be successful.
Shutdown from a konsole window with the "shutdown -h" command always works.
Could you help me how to achieve a reliable logout or shutdown by kdm?
