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'm a bit of a newbie, so any help is appreciated. My machine is an Acer C720 chromebook. When you start it up, you need to hit ctrl+l to load bodhi. Before bodhi is loaded, the hdmi works. As soon as you start Bodhi, the hdmi stops, and the tv says that nothing is connected. I'm at a loss for what to do, does anyone have something I could try?
That's OK, it just shows you're not in a desparate hurry ;-)
Looking there, you have 2 sound cards - one is your sound card with speakers on it, and one is your hdmi audio output in the GPU, or to be precise, the APU. What can be happening is that output is directed at card 0 when you want it directed at card 1 and vice versa. When I had that problem I sorted it with modules options and clever stuff in modprobe.d
My problem isn't with audio, I can't get the screen to display anything on the tv. I can go into my screen setup through the settings, and it shows a 2nd display. But selecting it doesn't do anything, and I can't figure out why it won't play. Anything else I can try?
Either way you might have to restart X. I have the previous generation Intel thing (HD 4000) and forget the name of it (Sandy bridge? Ivy Bridge? Dirty bridge?) and occasionally I have to restart X for that.
Plug in the 2nd monitor and switch it on. Restart X. There is often a Fn+F4 (or some other number) combination to switch output around. Typically, you get output only on screen, on external screen, or both.
