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'm new to Linux I have made my laptop dual boot to try out YLMFos, all was working well until after reading a few websites I decided to do the system upgrade, after 239megs of download all appeared to be OK, but now the software center doesn't work, it tries to start but then just disappears off of the taskbar, I've tried removing it and reinstalling it using Synaptic Package Manager, I also tried downgrading it, but still nothing, I have tried using different servers but still no joy,below is a copy of the terminal screen when I try to run the software center now;
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/software-center", line 78, in <module>
from softwarecenter.app import SoftwareCenterApp
File "/usr/share/software-center/softwarecenter/app.py", line 42, in <module>

module = __import__(distro_id, globals(), locals(), , -1)
ImportError: No module named Ylmf_OS
I think that the YLMF OS may have used a bespoke version of the software center so how do I go about getting it back, any help appreciated,
Hi there, found this thread immediately when searching on much of your error message about "...No module named Ylms_OS"
Here's a link to a solution which just worked for me with Ylmf v3.0 (essentially ubuntu 10.04) so I thought I'd share in case anyone else got and searched on this error when trying this "xp-a-like" distro
oh, seems the link gets blocked for first time post...
well, it's a "blogspot" "com" website,
for someone named "jeffhoogland"
created on date "2010/06"
called "howto-use-ubuntu-software-center-in" "html"
and the format of the address would be ..//.
if you can't get there (from the amazing code I devised above!) please let me know...
Hope this helps someone incl. OP (if still stuck)
