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.

Reason: keep explaining
Thatś Oŕight ,all of us have cross the line somethimes ,probably just to know ,where the line is.and that freedom probably is what make ourselves deserved for merit or disgraced.But itīs about freedom as well ,that i try to get answers insted of crossing the line ,and try to find this guy fisically ,because itś one of my neighbours and itś making me learn much about that.I apprecciate this advice,but itś worth for both ways ,even for mine as well.
Hi and welcome to LQ!
Maybe you should detail what you want.
What's your specific problem?
What's your distro?
Hello thanks for the welcome,i have intruders controlling my pc and my brothers.i ve just installed this OP,but cannot get into root,or execute antivirus i ve just downloaded,iḿ wondering if the same guys i had in windows are in my linux too. I had all my harware,or adware ownwd by them.and i think theyre probably in my new system.can you give a hand pleaase?, what can i do to make sure of that
You will need to give us some actual information to work with, some examples.
I also think that you need to pause and adjust your perspective a little. There is no all powerfule universal intrusion and control software and while there are plenty of malicious people and programs, there is no need to attribute to them every thing that you don't understand.
So, let'sstart with "I cannot get inot my root...". Please explain what you mean by that, how you are trying to get in and what messages you are receiving as a result.
YesIḿ sorry for not beeing more explicative the reasons itś about my ignorance.My distro is Ubuntu 12.04. And thats why Im asking advice. To see if its my ignorance what producce that,or other things.My paranoia itś about i have been infected for people with knowlwdge, to provoque antivirus and defense programs be uneffective, unable to control my pc ,loosing inf and folders, i thouht i had information added in mbr that loads with OP. I m just trying to get acces to root once i load OP .Unable to do this accion.if want to have a look in my pc ,i d really appreciate ,just tell how can i grant you acces. Thanks for the patience.

I was not trying to be difficult, but chasing ghostly intruders is a collosal waste of time, so I was trying to get down to a fact that we could grab onto.
Bug report: Geeky error message when trying to find applications online
"Yep, it is still affecting 12.04 LTS with latest update as of today."
So, according to the all knowing google, there is a bug in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS that results in this particular message being generated under some circumstances.
All we know of your circumstance is that it happens after you login, so within those bounds it sounds like you might be triggering the bug.
Thanks,what can i do?, can you give advise please?, How can i get rid of this load?, I don t know what to do?. I even tried about leaving control,if i could learn something but it didn t work,everyone could use my ap,and no control over my pc.
Hi. Try: firewalld and gufw to start but if already compromised could be lots more learning than that; plus, considering Ubuntu is at the forefront of some of the change for Linux could just be time to move for more control like LFS, netinst or many others... this thread could help too: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...re-4175488023/ best wises and have fun.
