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.

Every once in a while when I bootup my laptop some things don't load properly and I'm forced to restart. However, before I figured out I needed a restart, I noticed that Gaim didn't load on the Panel and so I added it. Now my problem is that every time I log in, two Gaim icons appear and there's no "Remove from Panel" option. Is there a location in the filesystem where I can remove automatcially loaded applications? It's really quite annoying.
check in /etc/rc.d/ or something close to that, I forget where they keep them in suse. There should also be something like an /etc/rc.config file (something close) check that as well, sometimes you can simply stop a daemon from loading by kicking it out of there.
I honestly dont' know. I quit one of the gaims and ran the other one, and next time I booted only one opened. But I did that like 5 times before with no luck, which is why I made the thread in the first place... Gnome seems to do all sorts of weird things to me. Sometimes everythign will load, sometimes nothing will load, sometimes SuSEwatcher loads even though I selected not to. It's quite annoying.
Oh well, we'll see how this goes today after work.
I think your'e right with that one because SuseWatcher keeps opening when it's not supposed to, and every time I login I seem to have one more Display applet on the toolbar. Any ideas on how to make it actually save?
What windowmanager/desktop environment are you using?
in KDE there should be an option when you log off that says save this session (same in GNOME, I beleive). If you use XFCE, it's in the option menu. There's also an option in KDE's system center thingy. It's in KDE components, uner session manager.
GNOME's should be in ther panel menu somewhere, in system settings.
I use Gnome, and I dont' always click the Save Settings button. Only when I do something that seems kind of important. The display manager icon appears regardless though, so I'm gonna have to look into the rc files or whatever for that one. It's all good though, nothing too major. \
