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.

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 have Mandriva One 2009, and am having a few issues with it. Most importantly, Dolphin points to the wrong home folders. I don't know how to describe it better than that; if I did I could probably fix it. I noticed the problem when I downloaded a picture for a background. I set it to go to home/pictures. When I hit "open containing folder" in the download dialogue in Firefox, this is where it took me (or tried to take me):
home > 'file: > home > mark > Pictures'
that is the path displayed at the top of the window. At the bottom is this error:
the file or folder /home/mark/'file/home/mark/pictures' does not exist.
Dolphin should have gone to /home/mark/pictures
I think this is a problem with all of my personal folders, because when I go to /home/mark/Desktop I have some default icons that should have been displayed, but they aren't on my actual desktop.
Also, this may be related, but I have no dictionary, or at least not one that this is pointing to correctly, so every word I am typing right now is misspelled. How can I fix these things?
I've got the same problem with Firefox and Dolphin. It seems that Dolphin tries to open the specified argument (file://some/path) after opening the default folder (~). I've tried messing around with the configuration but can't find a solution...
BTW, this problem is not related to Mandriva at all. I'm running Arch and I've got the same problem.
