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.

When I open a new windows in KDE or GNOME, I want it to be at the center of the screen.
I know I can do that by dragging the window ..but I am lazy and I do want to do that!!
For example -when I type xterm in Run Program.. it should open up and stations itself at the center of the screen,
X gods!! Pliz help me out!! I am really frustrated since I have to sacrifice extra energy to move windows top the center manually!!
Not certain how to in gnome, but it should be pretty similar (last time I used gnome it was).
In KDE, go into the configuration sub menu for KDE stuff, and look for window behavior, in there you will find settings for window placement. There is centered, random, and smart (and another, I think).
If you need the exact menu path, etc. to get there, let me know and I will double-check.
I am back Buddy !! Thougt I am lazy!! I did look arounf Kcontrol and found window behaviour under Desktop and I don't seem to find what I am looking for.. I don't see any option !!And for u kind info I have two eyes :-)
But very lazy hehe
I'd try switching to another placement option and then change it back. If that doesnt work, I dont know. I stopped using redhat a long time ago because of abnormal behavior and difficulty keeping the system running and difficulty of installation of new packages.
