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.

ok here goes.. the smartypants i.t. guy at work suggested installing kubuntu to my computer where i was using ubuntu.. i did it by opening a terminal and typing sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop...... ok.... i really dont like kubuntu.. i want to change it back how do i do it????
Normally after booting up the OS you are presented with a log in screen, somewhere at this stage should be a way to choose what kind of session you want to log into. Like a command line only, last session, another "type of desktop session, like Gnome instead of KDE", etc.
If you installed it with aptitude you should be able to remove it all again without affecting other packages. If you installed it with apt, it's a bit more difficult.
Anyway. Worst case is that you have some more programs in the menue that you don't need.
LinuxCrayon you are a life saver. I made the mistake of install Kubuntu over ubuntu and have spent days trying to get it all back. Your fix was the finally solution. Thought I was going to have to reinstall the whole thing.
