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 am trying to compile GTK+ 2.4 so that I can compile the Gimp. Deb Packages are great but don't seem to come with gimptool so I can't install plugins. I am thinking that if I compile it from the source I will have the gimptool cause I can see gimptool.c and gimptool.h in the source.
Anyway, I managed to install Glib. It took me a while. I accidently installed Glib to /usr/local instead of /usr. I don't want to have two versions of Glib on my machine so I removed the one in /usr/local/. I reinstalled the latest version of Glib to /usr and manually removed the glib folders in /usr/local/. Now I have a problem though, when I try to compile ATK and Pango, it says it cannot find Glib above 2.2.0. When I run "$ pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0" it returns 2.4.0. I removed the glib-2.0.pc in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig and made sure that the right one was in /usr/lib/pkgconfig. I ran "$ ldconfig" as root and still can't link to the right Glib. The config.log says that it cannot find glib.h. I am thinking that maybe it is still trying to access glib.h at /usr/local and not /usr. I could install GLIB to /usr/local but then I would have two versions of Glib to keep up.
