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.

Do I need an "ESP Font"? Where can I find it? The same pdf's display fine in Xpdf, but they won't print. My pdf Mandrake Start-up Manuals display and print without a problem from GhostView.
2) Problem getting Adobe Acrobat Reader to work. I Installed the reader in /usr/local/Acrobat5. Here's what happens when I try to run the start-up script:
[user@localhost Acrobat5]$ ls
bin/ Browsers/ Reader/ Resource/
[user@localhost Acrobat5]$ cd bin
[user@localhost bin]$ ls
user@localhost bin]$ acroread
bash: acroread: command not found
[user@localhost bin]$ ./acroread
bash: ./acroread: No such file or directory
user@localhost bin]$ ls -a
./ ../ acroread.sh*
[user@localhost bin]$ ../acroread
bash: ../acroread: No such file or directory
[user@localhost bin]$ ls -l
-rwxr-xr-x 1 bin bin 7063 Jul 2 07:08 acroread.sh*
Any help would be most appreciated. I need to be able to view and print these pdf's for work.
Why don't you try to execute the file you have in the directory? Try ./acroread.sh
As filename extensions are normal parts of the file name, you need to type them as well (or use the tab key for automatic filename completition).
I got Adobe working. It was a problem when it installed, but the error message flew right off the screen so I never saw it. Sure is ugly on Linux, though. I'd love to get KGhostView / Ghostview working right.
