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.

Whenever I install something in slackware, it looks like its from Windows 95. The boxes and everything looks "old". How do I use my oxygen theme on my programs. I used to not mind it, but its starting to irritate me.
You're looking either for the gtk-qt-engine, or qtcurve. The first one will make gtk apps look like your qt apps, and the second one will allow you to have gtk and qt apps use the same theme. Both of them are on slackbuilds.
If you want to give GTK based applications the KDE Oxygen look and feel, you should install oxygen-gtk2, I think it is the best choice. I already ship that as part of my KDE 4.8.1 packages (which are for Slackware-current only) but I guess you can try to build oxygen-gtk2 for your own Slackware computer as well.
SlackBuilds.org has a script for that, but note that that is still called "oxygen-gtk" while the name has changed to "oxygen-gtk2" in the meantime so that the developers could also release "oxygen-gtk3". A simple edit in that SlackBuild script will fix that. See http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13...op/oxygen-gtk/
