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 am trying to get GTK+ to compile and install and i am having some problems. i have compiled and installed glib and tiff libraries. i dont know if i have correctly compiled the jpeg libraries (i get cjpeg and djpeg in usr/local/bin). the same goes for Pango 1.0.4
configure: WARNING: *** JPEG loader will not be built (JPEG library not found) ***
*** Checks for JPEG loader failed. You can build without it by passing
*** --without-libjpeg to configure but some programs using GTK+ may
*** not work properly
if the jpeg library is not found, you better go, download anc install it. i downt know how and where you installed your jpeg libs, but best thing is to put the jpeg lib into /usr/lib.
make sure, that after install of the jpeglib you run ldconfig.
besides: you shouldnt use env ... to define paths for configure. use CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS or CXXFLAGS instead. (CPPFLAGS are preprocessor flags : if you need to set some special paths this is where you do it, CFLAGS are flags for the C compiler, CXXFLAGS the flags for the c++ compiler)
so your commad sould look like:
CPPFLAGS="-I/path/to/special/includes -L/path/to/special/libs ..." and so on.
