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 am running RedHat 7.3 and using the KDE desktop. I've tried to use kmenuedit but the two buttons at the bottom are always "greyed" out. In other words the two buttons "Reset" and "Apply" are always turned off. I've tried changing the menus but the buttons remain turned off so no changes are ever made. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
If you hide or make any changes that does not actually distrube the layout of the menu they will not highlight but the actions should take place. They will hightlight if you delete or add a new menu thus altering the layout.
I've tried moving menu items around, deleting, and adding new items. The buttons do not turn on, and no changes are made to the menu. I've read other questions on the net but no one seems to be having this problem. I can only assume I have a setup problem.
Does Red Hat have its own menuing system. Mandrake does and if you try to run KMenuEdit in Mandrake, MenuDrake runs instead!
There is a means of switching to the KDE menu rather than the Mandrake menu, though. Perhaps the Red Hat menu edit (if there is one) has a similar setting, which, once done, will enable KMenuEdit to function fully.
Thanks for the input. I don't know if Red Hat has it's own menuing system. When I run kmenuedit and then run ps -el the display shows kmenuedit running. I assume (you know what happens when you assume) that if running kmenuedit would trigger something else to run, I would not see kmenuedit as active. Am I wrong?
