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.

Ok, as the subj. line suggests, I am having an issue getting Lua to work with Conky. In the end of all of this my goal is to have multiple conky "screen-lets"/ read-outs on my desktop. I have scoured the internet for hours and have yet to find the exact answer on why Lua won't work with conky on my system. I am not sure what members would like to see from my system, but just let me know. I have all of my scripts in a .conky folder with these in there: .conkyrc, .conkyrc_clock, .conkyrc_net, .conkyrc_net, .conkyrc_proc, .conkyrc_sys and finally .conky_start.sh. The .conky_start.sh and .conkyrc both have little locks on them and I am not sure why the others do not. All of the other conky (clock, net, proc, sys) all are suppose to put Lua output and all have code for it within their given files.
I am not sure if my question is clear to anyone, and I apologise if it is not. I am not positive I completely understand the problem I am currently facing.
Also, I am running Mint 11.
