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'm fairly new to the linux scene and am looking to move to fluxbox as a window manager. I have it installed, and have been tinkering with it, but a lot of it seems pretty hard to figure out. After reading through documention and hints/tips/etc...I still need a little guiding on how to pull some things off.
and trying to work through things. I would really like to be able to get things like the fully transparent and border-less terminals and such that are present in those screenshots. Also, what about the things like icons menu seperations in the flux-menu (second screenshot).
Is there anywhere I can go to read a tutorial on how to do this sort of thing? Does a tutorial even exist? Or am I stuck fighting my way through this?
I suppose what I'm looking for is a Fluxbox version of "This is how I do it all," heh.
i use Eterm and aterm, and both allow me to go transparent and borderless. eterm has a config file you can change around, and for aterm, i created an .Xdefaults file in my home directory that aterm and xterm uses, this is my .Xdefaults file which gives me transparency, but i kept the borders on aterm:
Well, my friend and I have been fighting through this...and we are slowly learning how to do a lot of stuff with it. We managed to pull off borderless, scrollless, transparent ETerm windows (as seen in the screenshots), as well as the IRC transparency. Menu transparency we have down as well. Your method is much different than ours however. We edited the chosen style to start Eterm and such with certain variables...your way makes a lot more sense though. I'll definitly begin toying around with that.
Haha, by the time we are done we will be able to write the fluxbox tutorial :-P.
Anyone have any other hints/tips/how to's - icons in the menu...anyone?
