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 want to switch to DR17 Enligtenment
i mean I allready have it installed on my slack 11
it works great and all that
how do i change the login screen?
now its the login screen from KDE
and i want to use Enlightenements login screen
and i don't want to unsinstall KDE as i might need it from time to time...
any help would be great!
the Enlightenment login manager is "entrance". One way to use it is to add this code to "/etc/rc.d/rc.4":
# Try to use Enlightenment's Entrance session manager:
if [ -x /usr/sbin/entranced ]; then
exec /usr/sbin/entranced -nodaemon
An alternative way to start entrance is via a rc.entrace file in /etc/rc.d/ as it is included e.g. in the SlackE17 package. If you have already modified rc.4 be sure to remove rc.entrace or to chmod 0644 it. Using both will cause problems like that:
INIT ld "x" respawning too fast disabled for 5 minutes
Sorry about the close-parenthesis there -- I swear Alien BOB's repository really exists
To change themes you have to open entrance_edit_gui -- make sure root can display to your current display and you have entrance running. Then when you get it running, change themes, log out and see if you can log back in My experiment failed. I successfully changed themes but I got an authentication error when I tried to log back in. You may need to install some additional stuff (PAM?), however it worked fine with the default theme and with the new theme it died on me.
