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.

Started up this morning got to log in screen and noticed splash screen was different when tried to log in screen goes blank pointer changes to x then back to log in. Can't log in as root on KDE. logged into failsafe started kde from terminal added another user, new user can log in normally. How can I get back into my other user profile. I checked system logs and found these errors: session opened for user "xxxx" by (uid=0)
can't update authorization file in home dir /home/"xxxx"
cannot create sesion log file .xsession-errors: permission denied
session closed for user "xxxxx"
I can open my old profiles files from the new user but I would prefer to fix this the right way any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

tryed that and received no such directory or file exists. If I go into failsafe I can command startkde and get that to work but shell outputs font error message as it opens. If I log in as my new user at splash kde opens normally. Other thing I noticed is that the session manager at splash screen no longer lists gnome.
