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.

I'm trying to get rid of the over-scan on my htpc which is connected (HDMI) to my JVC TV.
So var I'm using: xrandr --output HDMI-0 --transform 0.95,0,-60,0,0.95,-40,0,0,1
but I can't seem to get the screen out of the upper left corner (also tried --pos).
(The HTPC is running Xubuntu 14.04 and I'm using open-source drivers for my ATI Radeon HD 4600).
