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 tried installing Bitdefender antivirus for unices, it appeared to have installed correctly but failed to launch only showing a box saying "Loading Antivirus engine" but nothing else happened, I therefore uninstalled it however in Synaptic package manager it was listed under the status tab as having broken dependencies, I marked it for complete removal but this failed (Error code 1)
I also tried commands in terminal
sudo spt-get update
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get autoclean
I got this ~ The following packages will be REMOVED
0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 1 to remove and 18 not to upgrade.
1 not fully installed or removed.
After this operation, 141 MB disk space will be freed.

Removing bitdefender-scanner (7.7.1-1809) ...
find: ‘/opt/BitDefender-scanner/share/locale’: No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing package bitdefender-scanner (--remove):
subprocess installed post-removal script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Don't know what else to do, if I just leave it (the system seems to be working ok) will it harm anything.
I got it from the Bitdefender site http://www.bitdefender.co.uk/busines...or-unices.html, it says request a free licence, I simply had to register for a free licence key which they emailed to me with a link to download the file which was the latest one listed. It is a .run file.
