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 running Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (not sure if this matters) but I ran into a weird issue where none of my keys work correctly. What i do know is that when i press f, or any button, it acts as if the CTRL button is held down so pressing f opens up a find window.
Anybody come across this problem and how do I re-create this problem so I know how to prevent it? I have no idea how this happened.
PS i saw someone with the same post but no answers...
Have you poked around in System / Preferences / Keyboard? Lots of settings in there. (I'm not familiar with those options. I just happened to notice them.)
Maybe you accidentally did something that updated something else in there... well, if you don't have peanut butter and beer dribbled down in the keys!
No, I don't usually mutter "Bad keyboard, naughty, bad keyboard." while doing this.
I did that with my wireless keyboard, one day it broke and all the little plastic thingies that made contacts on it fell.... 104-105 little gummy things. Took me 6 hours to fix it. I think this was God's way of punishing me for spanking my keyboard.
