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.

I have managed to install Kali upon Virtual Box, on my Windows 7. In addition I have added VPN, all seems fine apart from when I try to configure/connect to my VPN provider.
The Network Manager (NM) is installed and I can add my login details HOWEVER the window size of the NM is small and the 'Apply'/'Done' button is not showing, as it's cut off by the task bar of the Kali Desktop window.
I have tried dragging the corners to resize but it's not working.
Can anybody help on this? Thanks in hope. dadrunkpenguin
John, your directness is of course sobering and not likely to win 'Diplomacy of The Month Award' but I understand your reasons in saying what you did and appreciate that you offered your views. I posted in this area of the Forum as I was under the impression it was for Linux Newbies, I guess you consider my inability to address the issue I am experiencing evidence that I do not merit posting even here, ah well I hope to have better fortune in receiving the advice or support from those who do have greater experience and knowledge. dadrunkpenguin
Well John , again thank you for repeating your assertion, may I ask if your reply is that of an Administrator of this Forum? If so perhaps you may wish to place at the Home Page a prominent notice, in bold red letters 'This Site Is NOT (let me makes this totally clear, in case you are too stupid to understand, for anyone other than Professional users of Linux/Kali' That should hopefully keep away people who in all innocence simply seek some advice on a particular issue. Meanwhile if you are not an Administrator of this forum please note that your observations have been read, so kindly move on now and maybe I could be fortunate enough to get some guidance other than condescension.
