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.

Another question from another newbie. This one has me puzzled though. I am having trouble...get ready...setting my background. In the past I have been able to do this just fine but not today. I have emerged/installed feh but when I try to use the command: fbsetbg -f <file location> I get the following error:
feh WARNING: /home/zac/wallpapers/01156_darknesstolight_1280x800.jpg - No Imlib2 loader for that file format
feh ERROR: Couldn't load image in order to set bg
/usr/bin/fbsetbg: line 169: xmessage: command not found
Any ideas? Am I doing something ridiculously stupid?

Alright....So I looked in the folder /usr/lib/imlib2/loaders and found out that I just don't have jpeg support along with a couple of others. I tried running fbsetbg with a .bmp file and it worked fine. I can't seem to find the package with the rest of the loaders though. so that's where I am at now....
