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 looking for a decent file manager to use with XFCE4.2 and Gnome since I find Nautilus horribly slow.
I could just use Konqueror as I do with but since my kde theme is all dark blue and my Gnome and xfce themes are all bright and colourful it looks crap (I know it shouldn't matter but it does).
Ideally I would like something dual-paned in the style of Konqueror or Xplorer2 on Windows or failing that something in the style of Nautilus but lighter and faster.
I definately don't want the commander style such as Krusader.
I've tried rox and xffm and dislike them both.
I've seen a few apps that seem to fit the bill but I'm having problems with them -
GFileRunner - I've downloaded it but I get this error on ./configure -
configure: error: Could not find the gnomeConf.sh file that is generated by gnome-libs install
the only gnome-libs package I can find is gnome-libs-data, which I already have installed.
Velocity/gnome-velocity - Apparently this is gfilerunner under a different name. I've been searching on google but cannot find anywhere I can download it from.
Thunar - Same as velocity, I can't find anywhere to download it.
Finally, at the moment I'm trying Claw4, which is quick and simple but I can't seem to do anything with it - there is a favourites sidebar but I can't work out how to add anything to it and also it won't save the window state/size. Does anyone have any info on this?
So if anyone can help me with any of the above (particularly .deb packages) I'd be most grateful.
