You could get active on this forum and help others to solve their problems. That way, you will come across a lot of problems you haven't had yourself, which is pretty educative.

Another way would be to study for a certification such as LPIC. Even if you don't plan to actually be certified, still the subjects that have to be learnt are well chosen and improve your skills.

One thing I found that really helped me out was to force myself to use the terminal more.

I installed fluxbox and without a file manager had to use the term to do everything. I learnt vim, bash, sed, grep and awk.

sometimes forcing yourself or limiting your choices is the easiest solution.

Maybe read some things. I think the RUTE tutorial ( is quite good, you can browse the stuff at or go to your local bookstore and grab some good Linux book. If you like reading, there are some threads here where you can get plenty of tips. I like browsing sites like (I'm sure there are many others) and sometimes I stumble upon the next topic I can dive in.

Not knowing how you think and learn, this is pretty open ended.

Here is my favorite formula:
  1. Play--push buttons, click menus, try things to see what happens.
  2. When stuck in #1, post a question.
  3. When tired of #1 and #2, read a book--eg Linux in a Nutshell (O'Reilly)
  4. When tired of #3, return to #1.
  5. Repeat as required.

What part of Egypt? (In 2004, we were on a Nile cruise + 3 days in Cairo--we really enjoyed Egypt.)
