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.

its 3 am and i'm still no where, haha. i need the newest version of glib, atk, and pango to run GTK and xmms. sadly i can't get glib to install. i've deleted it from /usr/lib/ and re-configured and make/make installed it. (./configure --prefix=/usr/lin/glib-2.4/ make make install). it says i need to change something with PKG_CONFIG+PATH but i checked my pgkconfig folder in usr/lib/ and i have a new glib-2.0.pc file that points to my glib-2.4.0 folder.. yet it still cant recognize it, can someone help me.
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for glib-2.0 >= 2.4.0 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.4.0... Package atk was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `atk.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'atk' found
configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.4.0 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.4.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
if someone can help me out, when i try to get ATK to config it says the GLIB version is bad.
Hello "thef0x". Have you resolved your problem? I ask it, because I have the same problem with gtk+. I would like to install Gimp 2.0. And to install Gimp I need gtk+ and to install gtk+ I need to install Pango,Glib and Atk-libraries. So if you know what to do, please tell me.
Why are you putting glib in such a non-standard folder? If you configure it so it goes into /usr/lib (--prefix=/usr) then everything will find it just fine. All the problems I had with GTK2 were from trying to put it in a nonstandard place, and my PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable is properly defined.
First execute these lines (I put those on my AND root's .bash_profile -script. Easier life in future):
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH LD_LIBRARY_PATH
Before install nothing, do as "root":
Use on every package default prefix (atk, glib, pango, gtk+):
