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 recently switched from KDE to Gnome to see what the differences were. In doing so I noticed that my icons and stuf on my KDE desktop had not appeard on the Gnome desktop, so I did a search here to see what I could do. I found this:
I followed the instructions there, open nautilis, go to settinsg, unselect use to load desktop or something like that then loged out and back in. When I came back it had not fixed my desktop, instead it's as if there is no longer a desktop. "Ok" I said, and went back to nautilis to reselect that option assuming that would fix my problem. eep =/ the option is gone... any help would be greatly appreaciated =)
I think you misunderstood my problem... yes I realized my issue was a different one, and I actually realized what you itterated to me as well (that gnome just has it's own desktop)... my problem is that there is no desktop at the moment. no icons whatsoever, nothing even happens if I click (right or left), and I just want it to go back to what it was, not KDE, but the initial desktop before I switched that setting on Nautilus. I didn't really find that reply too helpful to my problem man, infact a bit flamey...
i get the impression that you'ev not really done anything involveing gnoem or nautilus really, i can't even see those options rshaw mentioned and i never go near nautilus, personally, i'd say just delete the .nautilus directory and let it start again from the start.
