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.

yeah but some mod moved it and LFS ain't mentioned in the title so I put it here, I don't really use slackware anymore but I thought I'd put this here for old times sake.
Glad u like it its on xfce-look.org and conatins both metacity and xfce4 window borders.
I've gone back to Openbox on my new 14.0 laptop. I fiddled with my fonts following the "How to optimize Slackware Fonts" thread, and I'm using Adobes Source Sans for my system fonts and Source Code Pro for my terminal.
Following the 'which terminal do you guys use' thread I've started fiddling with Xterm with the Solarized theme. I liked the xfce terminal but couldn't sort out the Solarized theme (a few colors seem a bit wrong).
I'm pretty happy, openbox pipe menus are awesome. The only things I'm not convinced with are the icons in tint2's system tray and the notifications (which come from xfce) kind of spam the one side of my screen if I get more than one (kde's notification thing is a lot nicer).
It usually takes me several days to make a desktop. As far as right click menus in KDE go, you can enable them through desktop settings. Its under Mouse Actions, you can set right click to open application menu. Then you edit your menu with kmenuedit (not the best or most stable tool, but its the only thing that can edit KDE's app menu so you kinda have to use it, I still can't find the plaintext menu file... After that its really just picking a wallpaper, window theme, desktop theme, icon theme, and color scheme. These are all in the KDE settings.
Its really the same thing for theming any desktop environment, you need a WM theme, a gtk/qt theme, and a wallpaper.
