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.

Ok, I am a fan of the ppracer/extreme tux racer because it is relaxing and fun.
I installed it on my Fedora machine today. I went into settings, and fixed the video so it was at a higher resolution, and looked at the keyboard controls, and realized, "ooh look! there's a 'trick' key!"
when I started a new game, I could not turn left. DX
I looked at the keyboard configuration, and found the field for turning left was blank. So was the field for breaking. I clicked on the field for left turn, and pressed left. Then, it ever so kindly put a mysterious misshapen BOX where it's supposed to say, "left" I did the same thing for the break key, reassigning it to "down" and got the box again. this only happens for those two keys, as far as I know. I could still not turn left. I looked at the keyboard config again, and both the turn left and break fields were blank again! What on earth am I supposed to do?
I also had a problem with rendering. I can't render the snow or ice texture, nor the weather button things, nor most of the image previews for the courses without getting a black bar, distortion, and lots of irritating colored specks.
Furthermore, it crashes loading half the courses.
I have no idea what is up with this game, but I need lots of help.
