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.

is there a way to get ark or file-roller (I think that's what the gnome app is called) to open 7zip archives?
I currently use a script that allows me to double click a file in kde and automatically uncompress it (using p7z), but I thought there might be another (more sophisticated) way or plugin to do that...
Also, I sometimes use the 7zip gui version for windows which sort of works.
command line is not always more efficient.
I'm using linux for productivity and theres a difference between opening a shell, typing line (and thinking about the syntax) or simply double clicking a file.
Could you associate a script with .7z files in, say, Nautilus or Konqeror or whatever? A script which would take $filename.7z and, erm, un7zip it. Then, when you 2x-clicked on a file, it would extract the original file - if one was clever, in a folder called $filename.
