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.

Hi guys I recently installed mplayer from source on my Slackware 10 OS, since i also enabled the gui function I tryed to create a launcher. I could not find a shell script that came with the source so I created my own. When I double click on it all it does is it opens the terminal and then it loads some stuff then all the windows close. Does anyone have a working shell script I can use? Help would be nice!
Distribution: SlackWare 10.1+, FreeBSD 4.4-5.2, Amiga 1.3,2.1,3.1, Windors XP Pro (makes a fair answering machine)
If you had a successful build and install of mplayer a symbolic link WOULD have been made in your /usr/local/bin or your /usr/bin depending on your --prefix=PATH option. That symlink link would be named `gmplayer' which is nothing more than a link to `mplayer`.
If your build and install with --enable-gui was successful then issueing the command `mplayer` in a console in the X enviroment WOULD launch the gui version.
Well, I dont know what this means bbut this is what I get when I double cclick on the link.
