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.

If you're using KDE, right click on the KDE logo in the Kicker, click on Menu Editor,then Development, then Emacs, then the square in the GUI - that brings up all the icons. Hope that's clear enough.
Curious. Starting from the GUI works but I normally start with a setup script from a rxvt window. From a terminal window the script works as it is supposed to do giving a full functional emacs. Guess I'll have to give up trying to minimize the impact of the user interface on my number crunching.
On the keybindings -- I use a special keymap in my terminals (and I boot to runlevel 3). The default, I believe has only one of the alt keys set up as a meta key. I call my custom keymap during startup with the rc.keymap script.
Toolbar icons -- I built Emacs 23.2 from source on Slackware64_13 and noticed that the toolbar has different icons than Emacs 22.3. I know that the defaults are different, but the SlackBuild script in the source for Emacs 23.2 in -current configures it with the GTK toolkit. I suspect that the original poster is either having trouble with the GTK icons or there's a problem with the makefile of the new version of Emacs.
I guess the question is whether or not other people are having the same trouble in -current with Emacs 23.2.
