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.

This urxvt method has the advantage of taking almost zero memory if you use urxvtd (the daemon), while gmrun and similars tend to stay in the background as long as the launched application is running (which is an unnecesary waste of memory). At least that used to be the trend the last time I tried it.
