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 tried freemat with Windows and Debian etch erlier and in both for path setting I just included all the directories and folders related to freemat and it worked fine, but I have lenny on my laptop and freemat gives ERROR undifined function or variable even with basic function such as comb(3,7)??
Am I missing anything to include in path ??
Well I am not quite sure of version, I netinst it and than I formated the PC now on laptop I'm running lenny , I downloaded a CD of it. I tried making a custom function just a simple one ...
and then named it chris1 and added the folder in freemat path but, didn't work, still give UNDIFINED FUNCTION OR VARIABLE error, I have attched the edited path , directories not visible in attachments are ...
AM I MISSING ANYTHING THAT TO BE ADDED IN PATH ?? SOMETHING MUST BE WRONG WITH PATH !

I don't think you want all the toolbox files in your path, rather they are referenced by "root=/usr/share/freemat/" in your ~/.config/FreeMat/FreeMat.conf. The best way to set this on a new installation is
FreeMat -i /usr/share/freemat/
Unless you want to retain some old command history info, I recommend wiping that FreeMat.conf file and start fresh.
Verify the exact path for your distribution - mine is in /usr/local/share, for example.
Note that a package should not modify a dpkg-handled conffile in its maintainer scripts. Doing this will lead to dpkg giving the user confusing and possibly dangerous options for conffile update when the package is upgraded.

I use lenny but I couldn't found that .conf file I tried apt-get purge freemat but even that has not removed freemat completely and on reinstall it comes with all that history and path, I find just tool box and binary in usr/local/share folders I REALLY NEED FREEMAT TO WORK URGENTLY AND DON'T WANT TO GIVE UP LINUX, HAVE TO HAVE A PRESENATATION ABOUT AMPLIFIER CALCULAIONS VERYSOON, I'M A NEWBI SO PLEASE HELP ME !!! THSNKS FOR REPLIES
Distribution: pclos2016, Slack14.1 Deb Jessie, + 50+ other Linux OS, for test only.
cd into ~/.config/FreeMat
Works for me in Lenny.
Please also try cd /home/chrischristian/.config/FreeMat
and next 'mc' to see the file FreeMat.conf .
Or just do 'mc' in your /home/"user" to see .config.
( mc is the Midnight Commander, a small file manager )
The history, you mention repeated, should be in FreeMat.conf only.
( Which you should be able to watch in your default file manager,
using the option 'Show hidden files'. )
EDIT ... try this one too : 'ls -aR | grep FreeMat.conf'
