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.

Here's a few things I'm having issues with concerning KDE 3.2 and Debian Woody...
1. The package kdeartwork-theme-desktop (i think that's the name) won't install. It gives errors:
Unpacking kdeartwork-theme-desktop (from .../kdeartwork-theme-desktop_3.2.0-0woody1_all.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /D/Debian/pool/main/k/kdeartwork/kdeartwork-theme-desktop_3.2.0-0woody1_all.deb (--unpack):
trying to overwrite `/usr/share/icons/Locolor/index.theme', which is also in package kdeartwork-theme-icon
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
I should explain that I copied the entire KDE 3.2 tree to my hard drive because I got tired of waiting for it to download a couple times... I also had to because my network connection wouldn't work until KDE was installed (I have to log on to a transparent proxy).
2. I have MAJOR qt issues... for starters (probably also debconf related)... I get this when debconf runs:
debconf: unable to initialize frontend: Kde
debconf: (Can't locate Qt.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.3 /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.3 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.8 /usr/share/perl/5.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/FrontEnd/Kde/Wizard.pm line 7, <> line 1.)
debconf: falling back to frontend: Dialog
Also, when I try to run xconfig to configure my kernel for a recompile (using 2.6.2) I get tons of "undefined reference to" errors. That is after tons of work for it to even acknowledge that QT was installed. I had to manually install it with the QT-X11 source... the Debian packages didn't do anything...
3. I don't have the Move to and Copy to context menus that I had with KDE 3.2 for Slackware... How do I get them back?
4. Overall performance seems a little slow compared to when I had KDE 3.2 running on Slackware... It takes a good amount of time for Konqueror to load. And even for KDE to start.
5. I have KDE set to load previous session when it starts... However, it seems to be loading a certain session and not saving my session when I log out...
6. Anyone know how to configure which KDE Services start when KDE starts? In particular I need the Laptop Battery Monitor to start automatically.
7. Konqueror likes to lock up sometimes...
I think that's enough for now.. If I find more or solutions I'll post again!!
