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.

Having messed around with all the WM that came with SuSE 8.0, I tried a download of Fluxbox. Wow! I suddenly feel that I'm about to say goodbyeeee to that Windoze mindset - and I can even have Kicker while I get used to it. Am I right in thinking that when I use Kicker, I can't use it to "maximise" icons? I have to use that fantastically thin taskbar like thing instead.
God! I have a stinking cold but i want to stay up and play with my new toy.
I have cold too, mate, it is 90F outside and everybody is beaching, and I have to stay at home, and I am using flux as well - it is the best I've tried so far after playing with AfterStep, blackbox and E for a while. I think running KDE kicker defeats the idea running a lightweight wm, but what the heck, you like it - you are happy.
Can anyone tell me the simple command to open Open Office? In KDE, the exact location is in the command line. I've tried Ooffice and other variations. Help! The location is /home/user/OpenOffice.org1.0/soffice
This is your command with absolute path
just run it on the command line, if you don't want to type the whole thing over and over, you have a couple of choices:
- you can adjust your PATH to include
- you can write a wrapper script which launches the program and resides somewhere on your existing path
- you can alias the whole thing and put it in ~/.bashrc
it is a window manager designed to work with X server to provide an X client with GUI (graphical user interface), windows and widgets, it is a fast, lightweight window manager based off blackbox idea. It is also very configurable to user liking etc. If you ever wonder what linux can provide beyond KDE/GNOME look at different windowmangers http://www.plig.org/xwinman/
If you don't have ulimit set to 0 it should generate a core file in the directory where you ran fluxconf, if you really want to know what happened you can use strings to extract human readable text from it, if you are more curious you can run
If you don't have a core file - most probably ulimit is set to 0 for various reasons - one obvious is to limit core files to 0K in order to constrain disk space usage - then you don't have much options as to compile from source fluxconf and if needed fluxbox.
but when I enter ulimit, I'm told that it's unlimited. This is all starting to go over my snot-filled head but...
Could it be anything to do with gtk+config? There were some errors when I first tried to install flux.Blackbox bbconf works fine, if that's any help.
