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.

when its full i select a ful icon
when i empty the bin when it has somethin in it, i have to chang the icon bak to empty using properties,

I hope this doesn't mean you are logging in as root as your main account.
NEVER NEVER NEVER log in as root for regular use. If your new user account works as advertized, just use that one as the main account and as you learn more about linux you can fix the other one. If you have been logging in as root as your main account, just leave it as it is. It doesn't matter much and it will be one more reminder that you shouldn't be logging in as root.
If you need to do something requiring root privilages, become a super user from the console.
