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.

All you had to do was ask. Goto $KDEDIR/share/applications/ now type ls. You should see some *.desktop files. For example in mine open office calc was labeled oocalc.desktop. Now when I look in the file, I noticed a line saying InitialPreference=2. I left it alone, but I wanted kspread to open up .ods files. So I cd in the kde directory and find kspread.desktop, I added a line that says InitialPreference=3. I then restarted X, and my goal was accomplished.
No, that's not how it works. Please understand you should provide an answer if you can because others may benefit from it and in terms of reciprocity: after all about everything here is provided to you for free asn in "free beer".
Yeah, same here, not mad. I wish LQ had merge-thread or delete-thread options available to the creators of threads so if you later notice someone answers your question you can merge your question in with the other person's original question, or maybe just link yours to the answering thread.
