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.

how do i make my backspace key work as a 'back' button in mozilla/firebird browser(s)?!? it works in all KDE, but those 2 like it their way
it's kind a trivial, unimportant question, but i really need that key!!! (it's much quicker)
jes, but i have a 5-mouse buttons, and don't know how to configure those 2 buttons...mouse gestures give me the option to da a left-click while holding a right button, not a perfect solution...but then again...maybe i'll just stick on that...
and while i'm on the firebird subject, i had a font problem (weren't antialiased) so i downloaded a nightly build with xft support, erased the old firebird folder (i only had to untar it - so i guess that 'uninstalled' it) and untarred the new one, but this time in /home/nechos/apps/MozillaFirebird folder. i made a link on desktop to 'MozillaFirebird' file, but it's not working...why?thanx
yes - the first 'MF' is dir, the second a file.
i've untarred it as user (not root) so all the permissions are there (i've also checked to make sure)...any other suggestions? maybe mit should be installed in some other dir, like /usr/local or /usr/share ?da i have to make a soft link to 'MF' ? i think i've made one with previous version (it wasn't working perfectly) and i don't think i've removed it...could that be a problem?thanx
Some more details would help. Was it a landmark build or a nightly? (copy and paste the string from Help> About Mozilla Firebird like so Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20031011 Firebird/0.7+ (persist,gtk2+xft)) What extensions did you install? Probably the easiest way to get it working again is to delete it and reinstall. If you still have the .tar.gz you downloaded, extract a new copy. If you don't, try the 0.7 release candidate http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firebird/nightly/latest-0.7/
this is the Nightly i tried to install: MozillaFirebird-i686-linux-gtk2+xft.tar.gz (i can't show you "about" stuff since i can't open Firebird...)
the thing is, i had MozillaFirebird-0.6.1-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz which is a stable version, but it didn't have xft (antia-aliased fots) support - everything was barely readable...
someone on this forum suggested me to download nightly...
i've deleted the old firebird dir (but, might have left some plugins - though i can't find them now) and untarred new nightly into my /home/nechos/apps dir, and made a link on desktop...but firebird doesn't want to open...
I had the same problem and indeed is really annoying.
At last I realize Mozilla uses a different key-combination in Linux.
You have to press Alt + Left arrow.
It is less useful that just Backspace but...
