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.

Hey everybody, I just got Ubuntu Karmic, and I'm trying to get my Logitech Quickcam Chat to work. In Skype, all I get is a funny green screen.
Here's some info:

Camorama doesn't work either, it closes after a mean "Cannot Capture Image" message. I've made sure that I have video permissions. I've gotten this cam to work a long while back with an older version of Ubuntu. This is getting a little agitating. Anybody know what's wrong?
