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.

It's been a while since I didn't use Linux, and recently I decided to try it again. As before I get a Slackware, the latest one, and I'm using XFCE. Everything works fine, except the xfce4-mixer.
I did configure alsa, with alsamixer and alsactl store. Sound is working fine, but xfce4-mixer doesn't keep settings. I saw this problem in an old thread here (2004) and I even tried the trick (about unmuting sound in alsamixer, as if it was blocking xfce4-mixer to save settings.)
So, I can set the various sliders, thoses settings won't change until I close my session. But if I restart, I'll have to set them again. In addition, I can't set the output mode to 6ch. When I do so, if I close the xfce4-mixer window and open it again, this setting will be set to 2ch. Profiles don't work either. (neither ? either ? Sorry about my english)
All programs are those installed with Slackware 12. None of them were recompiled (maybe I have to recompile xfce4-mixer, now I think about it).
As I didn't see any recent post about this (maybe am I blind) I was wondering if I was the only one having this problem or if there was an alternative solution to control alsa with xfce.
I got similar problem just now.
Install slackware 12.2 and everything works fine.
But after upgrade XFCE to 4.6 (also together with other updates), I faced the icons missing issue.
I ever tried to reinstall XFCE4 package. But no luck
I think there maybe some personal settings or global settings are not updated accordingly. But i don't where they are.
Still hard working on it.
If anyone could provide any clue about it, it will be highly appreciated...
