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 stumbled onto the Ubuntu palette and I thought it would be fun to make a fluxbox style using the available colors. I also wanted the experience of building a style from the ground up and understanding how to do that in a nice clean way, and I did it. Also, the most sad Conky in all of Linux land, only shows the date and RAM use.
I'm not sure why it took me so long to realize I could just run xfce4-power-manager to handle suspend/resume/powermanagement in Openbox. Since that was the only thing stopping me running this on my Laptop, I present my new Slackware Work Laptop
I'll have to work on the conky a bit, it's copied straight off my desktop and doesn't work with this wallpaper
that's fluxbox right?, what panel app are you using? or is it just fluxbox bar with increased height and translucency?
Icons, Shiny Widgets and some other (un)necessary things. What we're NOT missing is screen space and productivity. LOL
Yeah, it took some time for me to realize how useless desktop icons really are. Those widgets introduced with Vista/KDE/whatever helped me to realize that, together with a nice Conky setup that I almost never saw because there was a window in front of it.
Don't get me wrong, I am still running Conky, compiled without X bindings, set up to just spit out text to be displayed in my statusbar.
Instead of searching and testing programs with vim-like key-bindings I really should take some time to search a nice GTK theme and make some screenshots to post here.
