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.

If you use the KDE Address book, you can download KBirthday as a kicker applet which warns you of any birthdays/anniversaries in your KDE Address Book. Cool. eh?
Also you can download kickarts. If you use the KDE arts system for your sound, sometimes it causes problems in certain games, such as LBreakout and Emilia Pinball. Kickarts enables you to Start, Suspend and Terminate the sound server from your kicker bar.
The problem I had was that whenever I put kickarts or KBirthday on my kicker bar, they disappeared next time I loaded KDE!! I don't know if the problem was unique to my computer, Mandrake, or is a general one.
First, put the applets on your Kicker bar and configure KBirthday to taste.
Second, start a terminal and type in:
cp kickerrc kickerrc.backup
Now log out and select "Log in as different user"
Whilst at the select user menu, press CTRL-ALT-F1 to go to a text screen. Log on as yourself, and type:
cp kickerrc.backup kickerrc
Press CTRL-ALT-F7 and log back into KDE.
Everything should now be okay, and future exits and restarts will work properly.
Question: Why did this happen to KBirthday and Kickarts and nothing else?
