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'm having a focus stealing problem, I think.
I'm use KDE in Kubuntu Breezy Badger (5.10).
Here's the problem: In an application like KMail, I click on an icon to create a new message. A window is created but it is not brought to focus; that is, the new window does not come to the foreground which is what I want it to do. To get it to the foreground and make it the focus I have to right-click the menu item and then execute the "Always on top" menu item which will bring the "Compose-Mail" window to the foreground for composing.
I've tried all the settings in
Desktop -> System Settings -> Window Behavior -> Focus stealing prevention level but they don't seem to affect the behavior.
I have also examined the file: ~/.kde/share/config/kwinrc and see the text settings. I also see the settings being changed by the GUI application when I use Desktop -> System Settings -> Window Behavior -> Focus stealing prevention level to make changes. So, apparently, the settings are getting written to the config text file properly.
I would like to get this system running the way it used to, as it was installed. This current behavior is annoying but not a real show stopper.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks for reading this.
