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.

Per instructions I found on the net, I downloaded and installed the latest versions of Python (python2.3-2.3.2-1pydotorg.i386.rpm) and wxPython (wxPythonGTK-py2.3-126.96.36.199-1.i386.rpm). Also, I untarred the latest Bit Torrent source (BitTorrent-3.3.tar.gz) into the /usr/local/bin/BitTorrent-3.3 directory. I additionally added the following line to my /etc/mailcap file
application/x-bittorrent; /usr/local/bin/BitTorrent-3.3/btdownloadgui.py --responsefile %s; test=test -n "$DISPLAY" (I read somewhere that the --responsefile had to be added)
I also added the following to Mozilla:
MIME Type: application/x-bittorrent
Handled by: (left this blank - nothing said what to put in here)
Checked "Ask me before opening downloaded files of this type"
When I click on a link, I just tell it to save the torrent to the HD, which clearly doesn't start the download. I then tried to go into the download directoy and type:
/usr/local/bin/BitTorrent-3.3/btdownloadgui.py (name of file)
and I get this error
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/bin/BitTorrent-3.3/btdownloadgui.py", line 13, in ?
from wxPython.wx import *
ImportError: No module named wxPython.wx
No clue what's going on here .... could really use some help.
Did I mention that I'm kinda new to Linux?
