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've recently came back to Slackware, after doing a full install with the DVD and set init to run level 4 (there was one time some months ago that I couldn't do it so I gave up on it).
Well, here it goes, I have installed gslapt and slapt-get and added a repository to the list that contains the Compiz files to install them, so I just selected these couple of packages and installed it following an old thread on how to install Compiz to Slackware and how to solve the errors that might appear when running CCSM but still this one persists:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/ccsm", line 30, in <module>
ImportError: No module named pygtk
I really have no idea on how to solve problems like this one cause I've never had any experience with this so, please any idea will be very welcome and appreciated.
In advance, thanks.
the output for ls /var/log/packages | grep pygtk is:
fernando@slackware-desktop:~$ ls /var/log/packages | grep pygtk
And yes, I have pygtk installed.
By the way, it is not a bad idea at all to install the packages from http://slackbuilds.org. But I might need some little push with an example of how to install one of the packages, for example the first one compiz-bcop, line by line. Could you please tell me?
Location: Somewhere inside 9.9 million sq. km. Canada
Distribution: Slackware 14.1
What I would recommend you do is, install sbopkg first. This has nothing to do with compiz. It is a program to make installing things from slackbuilds easier. Once you have that install, spend a little time on that site and learn how to use it. It is not difficult, but you need to know.
Then take one package at a time, in the order they are listed above, and install it with sbopkg. That is the easy way to get things done. When you get a little experience with it, you can make a list of packages, in the correct order, and run sbopkg and compile and install a group in one shot. It works well, once you get a little experience with it.
Would you like to continue processing the rest of the
build queue or would you like to abort? If this failed
package is a dependency of another package in the queue
then it may not make sense to continue.
Press (Y)es to continue, (N)o to abort, (R)etry to try
to build the package again.
PACKAGE BUILDING/INSTALLATION SUMMARY LOG
Using the SBo repository for Slackware 13.1
Queue Process: Build and install
Problem solved. I ended up reinstalling the whole system and downloading other version of sbopkg from its website and installing that version with pkgtool. After that I did the whole process of selecting the packages using sbopkg as root and building/installing from there.
