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.

Hi I did fine with Ubuntu 9.04 for a month and then things went wrong and I could no longer compile programs though others on the same distro could so I reinstalled Ubuntu 9.04. First step is to compile wxWidgets. Before this was automatic sudo make install libgtk2.0-dev, download wxGTK from wxWidgets then compile and make wxWidgets. Now I can't even do that, I get make errors every time and as soon as I resolve one. another shows. Widgets version 2-8-10 is the same as before. Does anyone know a current address for a tutorial getting widgets to compile with Ubuntu, I don't know whether to ask you, Ubuntu or Widgets (or understand what went wrong with Ubuntu in the first place.
Well, that's not usually much information to go on. Generally, when you post the output of failed makes, its a good idea to post the last 20-30 lines of output. Sometimes even more depending on where the actual error occurs. In this case, you could have gone to this page and found that libwx_baseu_xml-2.8 is provided by the libwxbase package. Do you have that package and its associated -dev package installed?
It appears now the problem may have been that I had done sudo apt-get build-dep for the app I was wanting to build which depends on wxWidgets. When I compiled the app (after installing various libwx dev and dbg packages) it compiled without my having compiled wxWidgets. Does this make any sense, and what are dbg packages? I noticed the app was built with widgets 2.8.9 not the 2.8.10 I was trying to build. What would I do now to build the app with 2.8.10? I have almost no clue about paths on Linux as I know windows (as per username).
