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.

what graphics card are you using?
do you have the crrect 3d drivers installed?
have a look at the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file and see if the line that says
Load "GLX" has a # in front of it
if it does, remove it
because this is a system file you can only edit it as root
the easiest way to do this is to invoke a text editor from the command line as root
open a terminal
enter root password
then type the name of the text editor you wish to use followed by the address and name of the file you wish to edit (check to see which editors you have installed)
