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.

Today I installed Debian 7.3 "wheezy" stable on a high-end AMD64 PC. I logged in to the GNOME desktop on my regular account, and everything seemed fine* (video, audio, Internet, etc) until I logged out and logged back in again... the time/date widget and system menu (with your name on it) duplicated. When I logged out and back in again, it duplicated again. I did it a few times and now I have several duplicated widgets, which pushed off the applications menu! I deleted and recreated my normal user account under a different user name, and the new user inherited the duplicated taskbar items! What is causing this nonsense? How do I fix it?
*Prior to me encountering the issue: the fresh install was was running horrendously slow, so I installed the proprietary AMD/ATI Catalyst driver suite and adjusted the display resolution (dual screen extended desktop) and it appeared to work much, much faster. I do not know if this logout/login duplication occurred prior to the installation since I had not logged out/in prior.
