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.

So, I've been trying to update my GAIM for the past 2 days, after a successful update to KDE 3.4.1 some things are misdirected, which isn't so bad. But I was cleaning up a few libraries and I noticed that kde-3.4.1 (the folder created by konstruct) was still in my /root path, I figured since I had already copied all the neccessary files for KDE and it was running fine I could delete it. So I sent it to the trash.
Now I try to compile GTK within the next 2 seconds and it's looks in /opt/kde, fine, but /opt/kde is linked to /root/kde-3.4.1 which I sent to the trash. And SINCE all applications are linked by that, I can't open my trashcan and hit restore and everything will be fine. I can run everything at a base, crippled level. I really just can't get to my trashcan. Can someone help?
Like possibly accessing the trash from the command line and then just copying the dir back to /root, or something else. Because when I tell the trashcan to open with Konqueror (command: konqueror) it half-way works, but then tells me "Malformed URL trash:/" So, uh, any suggestions?
I imagine if you just find the trash directory you can navigate to it through command line and move things back where you need it to be. I'm not a KDE guru so I'm not sure where trash would be, but if you have slocate you could try "slocate trash" or "slocate kde-3.4.1".
I wouldn't be too worried that your system is screwed, the files are still there, and you will be able to access / restore them eventually (even if it means resorting to a live CD or the like).
Got it, through another accident I found out how to fix this.
Lucky for me konqueror would still bring up a valid, working interface. On the main page of the new one for KDE-3.4.1 ... which somehow worked, it has a working link to the Trash, which I just went into and right-clicked and hit Restore.
