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.

hii, I am using Gentoo and XFCE4, and when I open the default shell there.
when pressing things like tab or "home" and so on, I get only ~ or strength things, How can I fix it so it will accept theses speical chars?
btw, in the text shell (not X) I have no problem.
when I use xtrem everything works good, So what can be the problem? also I have a strength slow down problem, when using XFCE4, sometimes when movin from one windows to other, until I am doint "alt+tab" for some time, and then it come back to life.

Your terminal emulator - which is why I keep asking you
what you're using. "The default" doesn't help much because
I a) don't use Xfce myself and b) even if I did I wouldn't have
a clue which modifications to what you think off as a default
your distribution may have done.

I haven't got the foggiest idea what you're trying to say here...
Also, while at a terminal, press Ctrl+v and then press one of the buttons that is not working. This should return a code. Please print those codes here as well, corresponding with the button(s) you pressed.
