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.

Have just upgraded to Ubuntu 12.10, but I found that my xscreensaver package no longer works, which is a pity as it is excellent.
Is there a way to make xscreensaver work in Ubuntu 12.10 (and if so how), or is there another similar package available anyone knows about?
Back when I used Ubuntu, every upgrade uninstalled xscreensaver and installed gnome-screensaver, and I would immediately remove gnome-screensaver and install xscreensaver. It was like a little inaugural dance every six months.
Hello frankbell, I guess without humerus we'd be armless.
I have managed to install the xscreensaver program through the terminal. But it seems to have problems with the gnome daemon screensaver. I cannot find the gnome daemon screensaver in "installed programs", so is there any way to disable or remove this? Thanks.
