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.

where did the "make install" install the libraries, /usr/local/bin?
Ok, to find the required lib, do following:
for l in `find . -type f -name lib\*`; do
echo ========== $l
nm -gop $L|grep PLShallowSynchronize
done # assuming that you use bash
This library must be installed in /usr/lib, /lib, /usr/local/lib (or whever you configured in ld.conf).
You also may try to set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH before starting WindowMaker:
Ok, I looked at the url that you gave me. That's basically the file, except the error message is different, and the file is a little different... the one on the site is libwraster.so.1 mine's so.2 And there error is saying that there is no such file or directory... so I might be missing that file.
Ok, I think that solved that problem... Now when I try startx all I get is that Xwindows is already in use.. So what do I do, do I just logout, and back in? will there be a program that comes up, and I can configure themes?
