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 have a spreadsheet (containing several sheets) originally created in Open Office some years ago. Of course when CentOS changed to LibreOffice it automatically converted itself. I have noticed one anomaly and am wondering if someone can offer me a workaround?
The first sheet contains daily investment data - daily closing values.
The second sheet contains, by reference, the data from each Friday - the week end closing values.
The third sheet contains a line chart of the Friday values from the second sheet.
Prior to conversion to LibreOffice I would observe that upon entering the Friday data on the first sheet, the data would be reflected on the second sheet and the chart updated to show the most recent week end data. Now that does not happen. I have to open the chart for editing of the data ranges (don't have to change anything) close the editing and now the chart will reflect the current data.
Any ideas how to make the chart automatically update when new data is input? Or a way to refresh the chart without having to poke and prod it?
F9 will force the spreadsheet to "recalculate" and that will cause the new data to be shown in the chart.
I also noticed that when I opened the spreadsheet in OpenOffice and then closed it without performing any action nor entering any data I would be prompted to save or discard changes. This does not happen with LibreOffice. I am guessing that OpenOffice recalculated automagically. Is there a setting to cause LibreOffice to do this? I cannot find any setting for this behavior.
