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 have a problem. I can't see cyrillic text in any application! In KDE 3.2.3 cyrillic symbols appear like boxes. In GNOME 2.6 a cyrillic symbol appears as two rectangles one upon another with numbers inside them?! What should I do to see cyrillic texts and symbols!? Please help guys.
Could you give me a link to these packages? I found the first one, but it is a archiving utility I think, for extracting windows .cab files. Why do I need it? About the other package I didn't find anything?!
plm, what user are you running as? root? some other? Slack is not the best cyrillic platform - strange things happen.
I had cyrillic show up as squares with numbers in them in KDE and pretty much everywhere while I ran as root (setting up, tweaking period) Then, I created a normal user and for that user, cyrillic works no problem.
Cyrillic support has been such a painful issue on many linux distros. I am hesitant to even start digging what actually happen. But... some wounds are made to be reopen...
1. Can you please post "Module" and "Files" section of your /etv/X11/xorg.conf
2. Tell me if you use default/root. Did you try cyrillic as new/normal user?
Just thought I'd let you know I have the same issues, both as root and user, and that that solution posted above does indeed not work. Note that I didn't install the KDEI packages, so maybe plm didn't either and that's the problem. Or would that be unimportant?
# This loads the DBE extension module.
Load "dbe" # Double buffer extension
# This loads the miscellaneous extensions module, and disables
# initialisation of the XFree86-DGA extension within that module.
Option "omit xfree86-dga" # don't initialise the DGA extension
# This loads the font modules
# This loads the GLX module
# The location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (which are concatenated together),
# as well as specifying multiple comma-separated entries in one FontPath
# command (or a combination of both methods)
# If you don't have a floating point coprocessor and emacs, Mosaic or other
# programs take long to start up, try moving the Type1 and Speedo directory
# to the end of this list (or comment them out).
# ModulePath can be used to set a search path for the X server modules.
# The default path is shown here.
# ModulePath "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules"
(just posting those in case plm's are the same; save him some posting time )
