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.

The version of Nautilus on my Ubuntu 12.04 machine has an ability where, if you copy scripts into home/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts, then when you right-click on a file, you can choose to run a script on that file, in other words, using that file as an argument.
This feature does not appear to be present on PCManFM (not surprised), but also (surprisingly) does not appear present on my Linux Mint 12 machine, which is running Nautilus 3.2.1, a different version to the Ubuntu box, running 3.4.1.
Can this feature be enabled, or is it just a matter of changing my Linux Mint PC to have the same Nautilus version as my Ubuntu box? This is easier said than done, as when I try to install the deb package for Nautilus 3.4.1, I get an error that "Dependency is not satisfiable: libexempi3 (>= 2.2.0)". And sure enough, that file is less than version 2.2.0. I have downloaded a deb file for libexempi3 v.2.2.0, but if I install it, will it break my Linux Mint?
Or is there another way to run scripts in this easy manner? Double-clicking on the script does not give me any way to specify which file to use as the argument.
