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.

this should not be the problem , but might .
if the default language is NOT the same as the country you are in
say, for example "English" but you are in Germany or Japan . That might cause some problems , but should not these days .
Also if that was the issue there might be more problems
can you read the logs ?
the "massages" and "boot.0.log" files should show an error
also there might be a "xorg.log" if so look for a " (EE)
that double ee is an error
on the boot screen where you login , there also might be a link to any boot error massages
if so are there any errors
English selected country Au could this be an instal problem or the keyboard playing up program seems to work 99% ok although I couldn't start FF from the tool bar but could from the start menu which I could before.
