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.

hi everyone please helpppppppppppppppp!!!!!!!!!!! i go and download anything and it gives me the download screen in firefox and than i go to open it and i keep getting errors like dont have permission to open. all im trying to do is after download i want to install and i dont know how on ubuntu. i looked at the guide and everytime i tried it in terminal as root/sudo or even as user i keep getting same error saying that its obelete or so on and so forth.
im using ubuntu and trying to download and install XFCE and clavc( snti virus program) not sure of spelling. and i get the download screen from firefox just when i go to instal im not sure what im doing. i tried putting in home and it gave me error i tried putting it in bin it gave me error both said something like you dont have access to put anything in this folder. sorry if i sound all scattered ive been working on this for like 2 hrs give or take a min
i tried ' sudo apt-get install xfce' with 4 and with out 4 at end. both times told me its not found. so i went to synaptic adn now im installing a bunch of things i know kde is one of them. ill let u know if the ones i wanted are found.
installing Xfce is as straightforward as: 1) Enable universe [http://www.ubuntulinux.org/wiki/UniversePackages] 2) sudo apt-get update 3) sudo apt-get install xfce4 Then simply log out and choose Xfce from the GDM Session menu. It's that whizbang-easy!
