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 am pretty sure my GTK is broken. Eclipse won't start, it generates the following error message when I tried to start it. (A portion from the .log file)

Also, Adobe Reader 7 could not be launched either. Anyone has any ideas? Is it a good idea to update GTK?
Thanks for your reply Micro420. I had spend a day cracking this problem and now the problem is solved. It is not GTK's problem at all. For eclipse, something is wrong with the 3.0.2 version I downloaded. I am using 3.0.1 now and it works fine.
There is an issue with Adobe Reader 7.0 and SCIM. In order to run Adobe Reader 7.0 properly, I need to do
However, doing this will disable the SCIM. My dumb walk-around for the problem is to create a intermediate script to load acroread. In the script I first run " export XMODIFIERS=@im=SCIM
>export GTK_IM_MODULE=xim" then invoken the real acroread. acroread can be launched without parameter. However, you cannot pass a filename as a file name, it won't run inside firefox even you have the plugin installed for firefox.
I hope mandrake will have update for this problem soon. If anyone knows a better fix to the problem will be appreciated.
