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 previously set up Thai fonts which were working perfectly in OOo1.0.2. I then removed this old version and installed the new version OOo1.1.1. The old additional font folder (.fonts) and its fonts is still in "Home". When I open old documents in Thai with OOo, they display improperly, the size is wrong. When I type new documents, letters won't display properly just like if they were typed on top of each others...
I followed instruction in the help to add new fonts in OOo and this is easy to do, the only problem is that fonts do not display properly in the new OOo1.1.1.
I installed the Thai extension software for the system and it works great (fonts display and are typed properly in Mozilla), it seems to be only a problem with OOo.
hi Gmichel and chefmark
i just install RH 9.0 and how can i install thai font for it? i try to use how to from linuxeasy.net but after finished i cant type "e" it's give me a star. would you please tell me
Originally posted by chefmark I gave up eventually and installed Open Office TLE, a native Thai port (from Chulalongkorn uni I believe), it works flawlessy.
Sorry I can't be more help
ps if you are on a bad dial-up send me an e-mail and I will burn OfficeTLE to a cd for you.
pps If you want a great Thai distro, based on Slack 9.0 check out www.buraphalinux.org
hi mr chefmark thank you very much sir(you are older than me should be "sir") . i can go to zeer and buy it. it's ok. buy a knowleadge is ok for me. anyway i will try to use Fedora core 1,2 and Redhat 1st. and i will try TLE later. thank you very much you are a nice guy.
p.s. Mark i like italian food i buy a pasta lover book for making an italian food.
I'm interested in learning to type Thai; I can read and write (poorly) already. Can u suggest a Linux-native typing tutorial?
To Khun Chefmark,
I "klap bahn laew" back to the U.S. and live in Seattle. Would you be willing to send an OpenOffice TLE CD across the great waters, or suggest a vendor that would? If it's expensive to send you money, I can send International Reply Coupons. These are redeemable for stamps at post offices around the world. Or, is there something you would like me to send you from here?

Nice to hear you like cooking
i love pasta very much i got a Fedora Core 2 now Richard send me cd thank you very much richard he nice and give me many advice. now i have a problem i lost my 1st hdd whhile i install fedora core 2 lol. almost mad i try many program to recovery my file. coz it's very impotant. :'(
It is not clear to me do you want a copy of Linux TLC or OpenOffice or both?
With kind regards,
I hope I can give you the clarity you needed. When I read what Mark wrote:
"I gave up eventually and installed Open Office TLE, a native Thai port (from Chulalongkorn uni I believe), it works flawlessy", I believed it meant that there was a version of Open Office adapted to Thai, separate from the Linux TLE distro. Is that understanding accurate? If so, I wanted just the Thai Open Office to try on different distros. If I need Linux TLE to run Open Office TLE, there might be a problem because it's based on Red Hat, and my hardware has trouble installing Red Hat. In that case, how would you suggest I get Thai capability, including a typing tutorial, on an old Pentium II 350MHz box?
