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.

Trying to run a program here, called lignumCAD, but that is less important.
I get an error, saying I need to change the default application font to a Type1 or True Type font using qtconfig from QT version 3. Anyway, qt is installed, and gtk-qt-engine, and every other thing that seems to be needed.
Thanks for the reply. well, yes, that is the first thing I tried, it is mentioned in the error message. After I posted here, I thought of using "find".There was no command in the default paths, but I found it in /usr/lib/qt3/bin/qtconfig, and I experimented with it, but it doesn't seem to work with that program, I seem to get the same error message.
Any ideas/suggestions? Other programs to change the default application font? Or other AutoCAD clones?
Yup, that's the second thing I tried before posting here. Changed all the fonts to both true type and type1 fonts, no change. I used control center (kcontrol) for this, but same error.
Maybe it's just a bug in the program... I've found out that other people have had this problem too.
Thanks for the reply, I'll see what else I can find.
Any further advice/ideas are welcomed as well.
