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 brought up the terminal and typed in nautilus. It brought up the nautlius window. I still get the error that the "gnomepanel" has crashed. I press close and it comes up again until the panel is gone.
I tried removing the directories you specified. I logged out of X and went back to log in. I had the same problem.
Thanks for your help. Any thing else i could do. I don't like using KDE. I don't want to reinstall RH8 or upgrade to RH9 to get gnome.
I typed in gnome-panel. A window popped up saying "the panel is running and will now exit." It also printed "owner of tmp/orbit-Sorcerer980 is not the current user." My username is Sorcerer980. Any input on this. This is getting a bit hairy. Will upgrading Gnome fix it? I really dont know what to do now.
The folder that the error is referring to is the other user Sorcerer980. The problem with gnome is with the username Sorcerer. I don't want to remove the
Sorcerer980 folder and mess that up. are you sure?
If I delete the user than all my files, bookmarks and work I did under that user would disappear.
But you do bring up a good point. I can save everything I did under that user to one folder under another user. And delete it and recreate it. I am looking for an easier way though. thanks for your input.
hey trixer or anyone for that matter, about creating shortcuts
to applications in KDE?
This isnt a problem at simple thing just right click your desk top click add then program short-cut (or somthing like that lol) and type int he command also note you will need to type the full path inless its a system wide install so for instance say your program is located at blahb/blah1/blah you wuold type in there /blah/blah1/blah and then it would excute it when you double clicked it also note you ened to have rights to the folder that contains the program and what not and you may have to change the rights for the shortcut after you make it for some reason it leaves out the exec right lol it could be to prvent a securty problem or something anyway if you need more help just post
