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 somewhat new to Linux. I don't really do much with the command line, and I run Ubuntu on a Dell that had it pre-installed, though I believe that I can be a fast learner when it comes to Linux because I've had extensive use of Windows and I keep up with tech news quite a bit.
With that in mind, I'm taking a computer science class at my university, and all of our Java projects are submitted via CVS to the school's server. Now, on my Windows machine (my desktop) everything works fine. However, I'm not always at my desktop, and I'd like my homework to be more portable. I installed Eclipse 3.2 off of the Ubuntu repositories (it appeared to be the only version there, though I believe the newest is the Europa version). When I try to switch to my CVS explorer pane, it gives me the following error:
How can I get this fixed to the point where I can update the files on the school server as easily as I can on Windows. There may be command-line alternatives to updating the files, but while they'd be nice to know, first and foremost I need it to work via the GUI. Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
Well then, I think your installation is not complete. Have you tried un-installing the distribution's version and getting the Eclipse one? I did that on my OpenSuse 10.3 machine and it works like a charm. Plus you get the latest version of Eclipse.
Okay, I've got Eclipse Europa all set up, but I still get the same problem, and I didn't even uninstall Eclipse 3.2's packages through Synaptic because I figured Europa may depend on those same packages as well. Perhaps there's another package or two I need to install?
