Please change the thread title, 'urgent' is completely inappropriate

' Linux ' is a very large beast, you will have to provided details on what your goals are both short and long term.

Since your title is 'Urgent' I imagine you have been set a task, detail that task along with anything else you feel relevant.

Your absolutely inappropriately titled post gave little insight on your issue, and your post body was equally as vague, so here ya go. This pretty much covers exactly what you asked for.

You must have missed this while making your post, too. So I enlarged and highlighted it for you.
If you'd spend a little more effort in communicating your needs and reading first, you'll be met with better responses.

It would greatly help if you could tell us what Linux distro you would like to use. Although there are many similarities between Linux distros there are many differences also. Using Slackware or Arch for example is very different than using more beginner friendly distros like Ubuntu or Mint.

If you would like to use Ubuntu check out these excellent resources:
https://ubuntu-manual.org/
http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/
If you want to use Mint:
http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/20
And for Slackware (not recommended for beginners, but it has good tutorials on Linux commands)
http://slackbook.org/
You see, Linux is decentralized and is all about freedom of choice, so there is no simple answer to "the latest pdf on learning linux for a newbie".

So tell us what distro you want to use and what your goals are and we can give you more specific advice.

And welcome to the LQ forums!

Please use a descriptive title for your thread excluding words like 'urgent' or 'help'. Using a proper title makes it easier for members to help you. This thread has been reported for title modification. Please do not add replies that address the thread title.

IMHO, this sounds like a spam bot. Notice the registration? This month. Also, there is only one post made (the one at the top of this page) and the generic non-informitive first post seems suspicious.

The only flaw in my theory is the fact that the title changed, but a moderator could have done that.
