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 experiencing something funny with the KDE4.1 plasma applets.... Sometimes, if a small window appears (such as the file transfer windows or the question boxes), they stay in the taskbar area even after they are closed or they disappeared... thats annoying because for example, at this moment, I have 2 "entries" from Mplayer (windows called Error!) and one file transfer entry that are stuck in the taskbar area. There is no way to get rid of them, only a logout/reboot will do the trick.. Right click on them and selecting "Close" does absolutely nothing... Somebody experienced something similar?
I posted this a long time ago, when I was on opensuse 10.3 and quite frankly, never really had a solution for this issue. Then I moved to slackware 12.2, with kde 3.5. Now on slack 13.1 with kde 4.4.3, this issue is gone. I believe this might have just been a bug on the older KDE releases.
