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.

After creating a user account, I find that it cannot run the programs that were installed during the slackware installation- mozilla, galeon, etc.. In looking at the programs I find that they are in the "bin" group while, of course, the user is only in the user group. What is the best option? Install duplicate packages of the programs that I want to run as user?
Are you not allowed as a user to run programs in bin or do you just want the programs also to be in your user group? What happens when you try to run programs in bin because you should be able to run those programs?
I just installed Slackware, created one account (besides root), using "adduser", but I can't run a lot of programs that were installed during the inital installation from this account inside of gnome- Mozilla, Galeon mainly, but I'm sure there are others. Right now I have to su from a terminal to run either.
Actually I'm having the same issue. This is SPECIFIC to Mozilla though. I installed Mozilla to /usr/local/mozilla - and if I run it using a user account - it does nothing.
/usr/local/mozilla/mozilla is a script so.
I run mozilla-bin and get an immediate Segmentation fault. Just like the user above, the root account has no problems running mozilla. First - I noticed that it installed with no read/execute permissions to the mozilla folder. I corrected this, and further tried adding read permissions for all files in the mozilla folder structure, but this didn't help either. Still Segmentation fault.
