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.

I've searched this topic a few times, and tried all of the solutions I've come across, but Firefox still crashes when loading certain (almost all) sites.
When I fire up Firefox, I get this message right away:
sh: kde-config: command not found
sh: kde-config: command not found
And then, right after it crashes, I get this message:
The program 'Gecko' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 137 error_code 8 request_code 144 minor_code 3)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
I have already tried the "HowTo run GTK programs in KDE", but that did not work either.
I get the exact same behavior with the Mozilla Browser as well.
I am using the default Suse 9.3 theme, and have no Firefox plugins / themes installed.
Any help guys?? I have a feeling it has SOMETHING to do with the gtk engines, but thats just a guess.
craigevil? by chance could you post that site so i can look at it for some damn reason i open firefox 1 click and 2 firefoxes start running? also by chance would anyone know wth auto play is and why it starts playing something thats not there than just closes everytime i boot into FC4. and is it usefull in some things??????????
Gaim does a smiliar thing on my system. Only one seems to open but if I look in System Guard there are 3 instances running. I can kill two of them and it still works, go figure. I think somewhere along the way of playing around with an Autopackage version it screwed things up.
My Firefox site is the one in my signature.
Is it opening two instances or two windows/tabs? If the later it probably has to do with your homepage settings. If the first you got me.
Try opening it in a terminal and see if there are any weird messages.
im not real sure whats in the auto package but is it safe to delete? or does it make other things do their thing? thank you for the site thats the only issue ive ran into with firefox other than like the lines on the page not showing up. like when u click on newbie link on starter page and than u get to all the threads the lines that seperate them dont show up. im gonna see if any of the sites say anything about it and my gaim does the same thing.
Autopackage has an uninstaller. It should have made a menu entry, any apps you install using Autopackage should show up. Click on whatever app you want to remove then click uninstall and it will remove it.
