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 am a complete "Newbie" to Linux and this is driving me mad.
After installing everything I went off and tried a few of the included games just to see which would run. One of the games I tried, in the "Fun" category, was "Eyes". This puts a pair of eyes on the desktop which follow the mouse pointer around the screen. Very clever - for the first minute or so!
My question is this - how do I get rid of them?
I am sure you experts are laughing yourselves sick at this stupidity and the answer is probably staring me in the face. But please help before I get rid of them by using a large housebrick!
ha ha ha, don't like the eyes staring at you for very long eh? Did it only open as an applet in the taskbar (kicker assuming this is KDE)? If so, you can sometimes right click on the taskbar, go to applets, then uncheck the "eyes" applet if it's available.
I also like the killall command, find the name of the executable for the eyes program (maybe it's eyes?) and then:
into a terminal.
