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.

Some days ago a friend came to my home and show me a video of Ubuntu with Beryl. I was amazed of the incredible effects. I want to install Beryl in my Ubuntu 7.10. I surfed to Beryl Project website to get a download.
In the website, Beryl Distros I saw a Ubuntu - How to install. But when clicked i get a 404 error (page not found). So i download a tarball (aquamarine-0.2.1.tar.bz2). I guessed that must be the release name of that version of Beryl. After that, i opened read the install instructions.
Those instructions are not simple for Linux Newbie. but i manage to get in terminal change to directory where aquamarine is and do the "./configure" like the instructions said but i get this error
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking for -p flag to install... yes
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... no
checking for mawk... mawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for kde-config... not found
configure: error: The important program kde-config was not found!
Please check whether you installed KDE correctly.
Now i wanna know if theres a simple way to install Beryl? if not
What can I do to solve the problem above?
