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 received a new digital camera for Christmas. I've been trying to connect to it in Slackware before I do it in Windows. It is a camera that uses PTP and I have found information that gphoto will connect to it. I have installed libgphoto2 and also managed to get gphoto2 installed as well. The standard gnome GUI, gtkam doesn't seem to want to install and I figure it is because it is so gnome based and Slackware isn't so much geared towards gnome. I did some looking and found that "kamera" is the KDE equivalent. I'm thinking that I'm going to want some type of GUI to work with this camera since I'm going to be working with graphics.
Is there a quick and dirty or even clean way to get Kamera installed or some other gphoto GUI? Kamera doesn't show up in the swaret list or anywhere on the install even though it is part of the KDE package, if I understand properly.
Originally posted by reddazz There is an app called Digikam. If you can't find packages through swaret for your default slackware installation, check on linuxpackages.net or get the source from kde-apps.org.
Linuxpackages has both Digikam and gtkam. I suspect both would work, but I'll try digikam first since it is more for the KDE user.
Oh, has anyone got any idea why the link in swaret.conf for linuxpackages doesn't seem to be working?
