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'm happily running Mandriva 2006 using the KDE 3.4 frontend. I tried to move my digiKam application from /Multimedia/graphics/digiKam where the RPM placed it. I have "cut and pasted" the digiKam item from /Multimedia/graphics to /More Applications/ but the move doesn't work. I tried "drag and drop" it doesn't work, I tried the move as "root" and "user" and it still doesn't work. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance,
Mandriva does not use a conventional KDE menu. If you are not using the "menudrake" app, then any changes you make to the KDE menu won't show up. Also when using menudrake, make sure that you select to edit all environments and not just KDE.
Thanks !!! That worked, I'll remember this tip. Also, I was forced into using KDE because of problems such as this with Gnome, even though I prefer the Gnome GUIs. What's your pick between the two?
I prefer KDE because it has more features and is very customisable. GNOME is okay, I use it sometimes, but its seriously lacking features that I like and its a pain in the backside to customise because of the simplicity thing. I would urge you to use whichever you prefer because Linux is about choice and if one of the DEs works better for you than the other, then use it.
