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.

My wife's laptop cannot (anymore) display png impages. For example, the image at the default firefox/google page http://www.google.com/firefox?client...en-US:official does not display in firefox, but does display in opera. The image at www.google.com, which is a gif, displays fine. She believes that this started happening when I upgraded xfce to 4.6. I started with a fresh .config directory, and with a fresh .mozilla directory, to no avail. Does anyone have any ideas on this?
No, I started with an empty .mozilla directory to test.
That won't have disabled "system wide" plugins installed in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins (or ../lib64/... if you're using a 64-bit distribution). Look at about: plugins (<alt>-P) on her system to see what's there.

In my case I installed Slackware 12.1 on my wife's desktop and everything was working fine. Then I installed Firefox 3 on all our 12.1 boxen and hers quit displaying certain images. Most notably, graphics all displayed as black boxes on many news sites and images posted to some of her forums were missing. They worked in FF2 and in Opera but not FF3.
In her case the fix turned out to be to install a more recent video driver (hers is older Nvidia TNT2) and tweak the X configs accordingly.
If you are a stumped as I was at the time, have a look at her drivers and X config.
This happens to me aswell using slackware 12.2 and fireFox 3.0.4-3.0.9 . I have and ATI card and half of the images are filled in by black boxes on any given web page. As soon as install the non-free drivers it fixes the problem. And since I installed Slack 5 times in the last two weeks I can reproduce this problem every time.
