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.

KDE 3.3.1 with ?? Qt installed
How can I find out if the KDE and Qt Development packages ("headers") have been installed? What is the command line syntax to use, and what is the expected result?
Also, how can you find out what version of KDE you are running from the command line as well? Going to the menu bar, you can right click with the mouse and select About KDE which tells you what version, but can you also do that from the command line?

The response was: Qt 3.1.1
How would I have been able to find the command line command to use "kde-config --version" ?
Also, if I was able to see the ".h" files in the /usr/include/kde directory, does that mean that the headers are installed? I am assuming "yes". The next question, is how can I verify that those headers are for KDE 3.1-10 and not a previous KDE version? or Qt version?
One of the developers of KDE?! Neat.
Will you be able to tell me how I can change the screen resolution in KDE 3.1? Do I need to be root? I have posted a question on it here (in games, for playing zgalaga in different screen resolution) but nobody seemed to know how to do that. The KDE Control Center just had appearance controls but not screen resolution.
From the Control Center -> peripherals, what I see is only digital camera, mouse, keyboard, and printers. No display option. Is it in a later port of KDE than 3.1-10?
Is there a command that I can run to call the display settings GUI, if there is one?
Also, another questions that I had, if you know the answer is: how can I use my USB camera with KDE? When I start the Control Center - peripherals - digital camera setting, it responds with "loading..." and then just a blank screen. It is an IBM webcam - USB (plug-n-play for Windows)
You probably need an update, KDE is currently at 3.4 which has quite a few bits of pieces ( as well as being faster ) than whats in 3,1. If it doesn't appear in the Control Centre you don't have it Sorry.
AS for the webcam you probably need a kernel module for the USB system, to support your web cam. probably the ibmcam Link here..
How do I find the path where org.kde.qt package is located ? I found that you can use kdevelop to program in java. And one of its wizard is importing this package. But I get error while compiling.
