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 at first did not knwo what a windows manager was so the fluxbox website wasn't much help at first . Now i think I understand. If I had a graphical login with kde hwo would I go about setting that up, to try it out?
Go to Kicker -> Preferences -> System -> Login Manager -> Sessions -> type in fluxbox under New Type and then Add New.
Log in but select fluxbox.
I'm assuming that you've already installed Fluxbox.
Hope this helps.
I'm a bit stuck. I use KDM for login so I assume from the previous postings that I need to edit xsessions. If this is so - where on earth do I put my dockapps? I've tried with volume.app and that loads up - but not Flux.Same in xinitrc.
If it's not one thing...
Stop! Worry not. I've worked it out using that old system Trial and Error (and listening to acid_kewpie !!). xinitrc was where the additions were needed - I was thrown by the fact that the file is a lot longer than expected - I tried here, there and everywhere until I came up with this (for example)-
# finally start the window manager
bsetbg -f directory/.jpg &
Yup! Thanks again acid_kewpie! I just hadn't cottoned on to the fact that the slit and "toolbar" are the same thing (as far as bbconf is concerned) - but they now both look much better. For future reference, they are under toolbar settings -> toolbar clock / misc.
Can anyone recommend a good mount dockapp? I can't get to grips with wmmount.
