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 obtain this message when I entered the ./configure command :
The gtk-config script installed by GTK could not be found
If GTK was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
your path, or set the GTK_CONFIG environment variable to the
full path to gtk-config.
configure: error: Cannot find GTK: Is gtk-config in path?
I don't know what to do to correct that. Can you help a newbie ?
Thanks a lot !
This sounds like the PREFIX isn't set - this adds to the configure file where to install GTK-GNUTELLA - which would normally be in /usr/local/bin - are you passing anything else to ./configure - you can do it manually by ./configure --PREFIX=/usr/local/bin

I've hit the exact same problem but using ./configure --PREFIX=/usr/local/bin only gives me an error message: configure: error: --PREFIX=/usr/local/bin: invalid option; use --help to show usage
Dude, relax and listen do the master: Yoda

at least this is what I'm doin'
Sadly I've given up on Linux. I have a good grasp on most technical subjects but as an OS I feel it is still just too difficult to use on a day-to-day basis. I did a lot of investigation into trying to make things work for me and get a handle on how Linux deals with things but in the end I found it too frustrating - especially when I ask questions and am given the 'lets roll eyes at this idiot' treatment.
Maybe I'll try again in the future. I see the potential in Linux but maybe I'd need to find a more sympathetic forum who would be prepared to put up with newbies asking dumb questions.
