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 googled around and I saw some posts that say to run a screensaver in the background you do:
kswarm.kss -inroot &
My problem is the "inroot" option isn't recognized. What do I do? Alternate methods?
Also, to run it for a user, like now I'm logged in as krystian, would I do:
kswarm.kss -inkrystian &
(which isn't working, but... in the future)
All I did to get it to work was:
kswarm.kss -root &
kscience.kss -root & ...
How do I get the screensavers to alternate?
xscreensaver -root &
it seems there are a lot of these kss files... what are they attributed to? kscreensaver? What would I run to get them to alternate?
someprogram -root &
Is there some way to know when kde is loaded completely? Like when I add kmatrix.kss -root & to Desktop/Autostart it loads within a box. If I add the prior command to .xsession (using kdm) then it loads in a box too. Is there a way to know when kde has completely loaded (settings, startup programs, etc) and then run this (maybe script file?)
