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.

in software mgr, i have downloaded items listed, but now they are not accessible thru the menu...where do they go? I go back to the software mgr and it shows they are installed now...but I cannot figure out where they have gone, or how to get them to now work. A good example is CHEROKEE INTERNET SEARCH ENGINE....downloaded it an hr back...wanted to use it and set as default and cannot do so. another item i downloaded earlier this morning was pidgin privacy, similiar title, not sure exactly...same thing. any suggestions would be most appreciated...thanks folks
I tried using the command listed above, did not work..I removed Cherokee from my downloaded item by going back thru software mgr..clicked on REMOVE AND DID SO...I have tried going thru mint forums,,,typed in cherokee internet,,,,nothing came up...tried checking up on it by going to google internet explorer....nothing came up whatsoever other than
JEEP CHEROKEE....I DO NOT THINK IT EXISTS..........some of the items listed thru software mgr appear to be non existant. i also clicked on responders msg above and came up with a 404 pg....so dont know what is going on....looks like i am stuck with using what came in mint 13 pkg...great
I remember that there used to be an internet browser that the school district used on their computers NAVIGATOR...they used apple computers I think. I worked for a couple yrs as a janitor then....i liked it, worked really well. Have downloaded Opera....not a huge fan...it is so so in my humble opinion, will remove it also...would love a better internet browser. Dont like the fact that google shares and profits by my browsing. I would appreciate any suggestions on A) good internet browser, B) how to install it after downloading it, C) how it is better than google.....any other info appreciated as well thanks for your time and expertise!
thank you for the great info, I am not used to linux mint 13 yet, so I am doing a lewis and clark type thing now,,,EXPLORING WHAT I CAN DO....sometimes for a newbie like myself, that can be a daunting task, and it can mess things up as well...TRIED DOWNLOADING OPERA again...still dont care for it much...gonna remove in moments....thought safari might be the ticket, but for some reason downloading it a few times would not work for some reason....SO....GONNA stick with what is the default internet browser and quit fooling with everything and duplicating what is already included in the mint 13 cinnamon MAYA ed pkg. be a safer thing no doubt...THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR THE INFO...GONNA GIVE UP ON WEB BROWSERS...STICK WITH THE DEFAULT STUFF...THANKS STEVE IN ST JOSEPH MISSOURI USA..GRAYBEARD19
