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 am using the latest RC as of September 9. I am going to relate the problems I am having using konsole. I have set -o vi turned on. escape k doesn't work to recall the last command. I am using kde 4.8.5. I was using xfce 4.10 until the problem. Pressing the letter L echos the number 3 in 4.10. I tried control-alt-3 and the letter L also echo the number 3. so I moved to kde. I could not find scim tool in xfce. When the problem started with vi mode the scim icon changed from a keyboard icon to an "EN" icon. When I type each word gets highlighted until I move to the next word. I just checked terminal 4.8 and vi mode works. As a rule I don't use terminal because line-wrap is wonky. (and I can't figure out how to make it behave.) the scim stuff started happening between rc2 and rc4. Before rc2 I installed the bash-completion package. I only have one machine so I am uncomfortable with risking my internet connection with a reinstall. all other suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance. edit: xfce 4.10 is the L translating to the number 3. what is the tool to reset scim input in xfce? why does this happen in ctrl-alt-3 vt console as well? kde 4.8.5 why is my input highlighted until I move to the next word? Before the latest updates input highlighting did not happen. why does escape k not call up command history? It worked normally before the latest updates. Thx Update: Reboot cured kde vi mode escape-k problem. scim input icon has changed back to keyboard from "EN" icon. ctrl-alt-3 vt console works when I log in with kde under X but not when I login in under xfce. scim input menu displayed when clicking on the keyboard icon has changed. when escape-k failed to work English was at the top of the list with a separator bar between it and the rest of the list. Now that escape-k is working English is at the bottom of the list with no separator bar. (topographically yuck)

Reason: clarification of rambling description, after reboot
