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 use Thunar under IceWM, already used it under Flux... so far so good, no functional problem... this is about eye-candy ... How do i enable different objects in the folder pane to appear "different"...?
Kind of the icon for a file be different from the icon for a folder...
It do depends on a ~/.conkyrc. a default one is provided, mine is appended, "man conky" will tell you more.
It is not difficult to configure, though asking for syntax to be used in .conkyrc I was told "look at examples and try", which is not what I expected
Including LUA functions can seem a bit tricky at first but is not really difficult either, see lua.conky and how I made use of it in .conkyrc
I edited the original SlackBuild to add some configure options and edited a few c files (audacious.c, xmms2.c et weather.c) in the source tarball to translate some words into French.
To be able to use the --enable-nvidia configure option (I have a nVidia graphic card) I had to download a source tarball of nvidia-settings and make it to get a needed file libXNVCtrl.a and then made some adjustments so that configure find it where it expects to.
Well, this post is way too long but I'm too lazy now to erase unneeded information.
<rant>I had to append .txt to filenames to get them uploaded -- stupid check</rant>
