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.

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 am brand new to linux , having trouble trying to navigate through it. i need help installing either one of these programs festival or espoken. i have tried a million time but i get confuse when it says go to terminal and create a directory. what is terminal, what is directory. i need one of the program to work because i am student with a disablity that i have to have my papers read out loud to me. i have download both program just do not know how to install them
oh thanks zeebra, the espoke works great now that i used the package manager to install it, however the package manager did install the festival program too ,however i can not find it. i looked everywhere for the icon and the festival files, however when i go back to the package manager it shows that the festival program has been installed.

a terminal is a command line interface (CLI). You use it to enter commands using your keyboard. If you want to use festival, the first step wold be to read its documentation (as is the case for most sofware).
