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 am using Suse 11 64 bit and I am trying to set up the Compbiz water effects.Other compbiz features work, such as the rotating cube, but when I click enable water effects, nothing happens. I have set the initiate keys to <super>w. Nothing happens when I do this. Is there some other settings that must be enabled/disabled? I am using KDE. Should I be on Gnome?
I am running a laptop with AMD Athlon 2 X2 processor and a Mobility Radeon HD4250 graphics card, so I assume that my system sgould be capable of running it.
Sorry, I forgot to mention that I had tried resetting defaults. ctrl<super> initiates water effect. When I use this combo, the cursor on the screen gets surrounded by stars, obviously to help the user locate it.Ant custom setting fails to work.
Hi, I tried to set the effects in CompizConfig Settings Manager.
When I type compiz in a terminal window I get the message:
compiz (core) - Error: Screen 0 on display ":0.0" already has a window manager; try using the --replace option to replace the current window manager.
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0
Ah, I have just had a look at Default Applications in System Settings and discovered that KDE is the window manager. I changed this to Compiz. However, when I do this, the task bar at the bottom of the screen disappears and I have to let Compiz timeout and convert to the original settings. Any ideas? Thanks for all the help. It is appreciated!
When I type this command, the bottom task bar immediately disappears and the console screen turns green - merging to orange. The text can no longer be read. I must revert to KDE Window management to correct the error. Before the crash happens, all I can read is:
What you're describing really sounds like a driver issue, though compiz-manager usually detects if a driver is not installed properly and will refuse to start. Can you pastebin your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file and give us the link to it?
Thanks for the reply. I did a bit of research and found that my driver sometimes misbehaves with Suse. I ended up doing a fresh install using Fedora 14 and got everything running well, apart from one small glitch with animated skydome effects. Thanks again for all your help :-)
