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.

im running slackware 8.1, and needed to install GTK2 to use a plugin i wanted for gkrellm. i found this page that helped me do it for slackware 8.1 specifcally. ( http://linuxtipps.sourceforge.net/sh.../en/faq/77.htm ) however now when i try to make the plugin ( make enable_nls=1 according to the readme) i get this error saying how package gtk+-2.0 was not found in the pgk-config search path. it also tells me maybe i should add the directory containing gtk+-2.0.pc (in /usr/lib/pkgconfig/ in my case) to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable. No package 'gtk+-2.0' found it says. gkrellm2/gkrellm.h: no such file or directory. (this is actually located in /usr/local/include/gkrellm/ in my case). can anybody help me here?
im actually running gkrellm now just fine, im running the one based one gtk 1.X .. once i upgrade to gtk2 yes i will probably need gkrellm2 as well. although i could be wrong, it just seems that i have to edit some of the paths of my system variables...but you are telling me to install the dev pack? im not sure how you think that would help but i guess it would not hurt to try, im still open for any more suggestions however
this may be a stupid question because i STILL dont quite get the difference between what xwindows, a window manager and a desktop environment is exactly, but im running enlightenment right now, if i install this with dropline will that effect my current configuration?
