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.

Made some good progress, just a few more loose ends to tie up.
I'll continue doing my own research but I'm going to see if any of you guys can cut down on the amount of time I am spending on this!
I'm running Kali.
A) I realised I do not have sound in Fluxbox. Quickly discovered that it was muted, so I installed gnome-alsamixer and got it working. However on reboot it resets itself. I believe I need too something to ~/.fluxbox/startup but having issues finding out what!
B) Also, I'd like themute/volup/voldown hardware buttons on my laptop to work.
2. Menu tidy up
A) I'd like to import the entire Kali Tools submenu structure into FLuxbox, is there a quick way to do this rather than manually?
B) I have numerous apps which I either do not use or are duplicates. For example, multiple file managers, shells, terminals, etc. Once I have chosen my default app of choice, I see no reason to have so many others installed.
How would I list all apps installed, so I can remove the ones I do not use?
A) How do I use the tabbing feature on FB on my laptop mousepad which only has 2mouse buttons, as default is using middle button?
4. Tuning Installation
A) While the installation is pretty fast anyway (SSD) I'd like to see if I can further tune up. Remove unnecessary components, startup services, etc.
Any tips, guides, etc? For example I can see I have some KDE stuff, I dont even use it.
