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.

lol I know how you feel, my first few months in linux I got frustraited, now having used it 5 years (with no copies of windows for 3.5 or so) I look back and wander what was so hard, everything is so easy now, it just makes sence (more sence than windows ever did and I still used that longer than I have used linux, just not in almost 4 years)
k, well I got limewire again, and it still says the unrecognized JVM options. I will get linux eventually, seems very similar to old Dos, before 7 and I loved that system, it just made more sense, and was more powerful, I just need to figure out how linux works. Any other ideas
In the month I have used linux, I have never seen a Blue screen of death, that right there alone is enough reason to switch from windows.
there is no bsod in linux. there are kernel exceptions. but it is a bit different.
you want to do a good project to learn vital linux stuff? compile the kernel (not all that hard and very good to learn)
k well, when I am tryin to install stuff, I am running as the super user (root I hope). I know there is no BSOD, and I Have seen a couple of exceptions, but overall its like a brand new computer since I put linux on
I am in a java applet class.. but I have very little other java experiance, so I have no clue what those exceptiosn mean, it might be a mandrake specific issue, try googling it, maybe google a limewire rpm or something
Distribution: openSuSE 42.1_64+Tumbleweed-KDE, Mint 17.3
If you want to use K3B it is necessary to run K3Bsetup (as root) first. There (in step 4, if I recall okay) you can chose the generic-mmc driver. And you absolutely have to create a group for burning (step 5 I think, I used CD-RW or some such). Then K3B should work with no problem at all.
Well I can burn cds now, so I just uninstalled k3b, but thanx anyways. I think I am gonna end up searching for limewire rpm files, or something like that, maybe I can find the latest CVS or something that will work. Thanx for the help guys
its just a file. you can use kedit, or mcedit, etc
kedit .bash_profile <--- thats the command to open that file. just save it after wards.
or: mcedit .bash_profile
or if you use konquereor just use the option up top in the menu to "view" then " show hidden files" in your home directory and youll see it there. after you save it, make sure you log out then back into X. you can see if its right by typing in a terminal:
it should give you the PATH to java as added to your .bash_profile
