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 using FC1 and KDE 3.2.2 and was recently upgrading my system. After doing an apt-get upgrade, I couldn't see an apps in the KDE menu anymore! Moreover, KDE does not know how to handle file types anymore. If I doubleclick a jpeg, it doesn't know the corresponding app, which was kuickshow before the upgrade. Then a dialog with all apps appear from where I could pick an app. However, now ZERO apps appear, the dialog is empty.
Ok, I thought I messed up my ~/.kde dir somehow, and I deleted it (before making a copy of course). But nothing changed. After some googling, I figured the entries in the KDE menu are saved in .config/menus/, but this folder is emty now. I deleted it too, but no change. I also read there should be an entry in /var/lib, but I can't find anything. There was only one solution left: uninstall the entire kde and reinstall it, bun no improvement.
I installed several users on my machine, and I get the same behavior with each of them, no matter if its either KDE or Gnome
How can I get my apps (which I can start by console only now) and my KDE menu entries back??
