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.

Need to uninstall e-Sword and then Crossover. I have checked the previous threads, but cannot quite make any sense of exactly how to go about it with either of these two applications.
Unfortunately I installed a new copy of an e-Sword / crossover bundle made for Linux, but did not realize that this would virtually destroy my existing (Windows) copy's add on's - which were originally free but now, replacing them for this new version, comes at a cost . Thankyou Rick Meyers, for that pleasant surprise. My fault really - I should have read the fine print.
The method to un-install them depends on how you installed them.
Umm - I had been in contact with e-sword asking them about running in Linux. They sent me an email with a link to a download site which sent me to another site - which etc etc........ four or five pages of adverst later the download button actually started the download and I had an e-Sword icon on both my desktops (Ubuntu and Windows. I have followed the instructions from a Google find - but both "Applications" and "System" drop downs do not contain the the suggested uninstall. I will go and find the site and post it here, so you can see the instructions I have tried to follow - be back
Before running the above command, run crossover from the terminal to check that there are no capital and small letter errors.
i.e. Running Crossover and crossover will give different results.
Also run this and see if it says anything ?
apt-cache show crossover.deb
crossover: command not found
Crossover: command not found
des@des:~$ dpkg --info crossover.deb
dpkg-deb: failed to read archive `crossover.deb': No such file or directory
Under "applications" there is "CrossOver" and ( I have just noticed) there is an "uninstall" option - which warns that this will:-
"remove all files created by CrossOver Linux Standard in your account. ---you will still be able to use Windows applications that were installed system-wide, if any. But all the Windowa applications you installed as well as the C: drives contained in your bottles will be deleted"
I have tried the other two commands that you suggested (I had to install "show") - both results were 'no such file exists' - and I used all three possible's ie crossover Crossover and CrossOver.
Thanks for weighing into this I really do appreciate your time and effort
