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.

Gone back to using openbox&tint2. No conky at the moment. I've got a script running every 2 hours that picks a random wallpaper out of a folder, and it's hard to make conky look good on every wallpaper.

As a native reader of English, it is natural for me to start at the top left corner and proceed from left to right: so I start with my xfce start menu, and then proceed with four divisions of my single panel, the first contains icons that launch the apps I frequent most; the second has a small triangle dropdown list of every window opened, the wicd connection manager, and the power level (both handy on laptop); the third division contains the date and time because I'm helpless in this department, and the last division contains icons to adjust volume, eject cd, view/empty trash, and logout:
My single panel is there in every workspace and doesn't turn invisible when unused (this just annoys me when I want to click something near it and it pops up instead of what I wanted to click on)... If I don't want to see it I just take my app to full screen mode...
Love Slackware + XFCE... Thanks all you subgeniuses
my latest desktop. fluxbox, as usual, but i changed some important things. i took advantage of the 256 colors that urxvt has to recolor my terminal to a more pleasant color scheme, as well as customizing the prompt to my liking. i added a universal window transparency so that my gtk+ windows match my urxvt windows, and did away with titlebars completely, keeping only tabs on the bottom, and close, maximize, and minimize are controlled by custom keyboard shortcuts. i might move them to another spot [the tabs], still havent decided. im really happy with how it turned out though.
trademark91, I don't quite know you yet, but judging by the amount of posts you've made, something tells me you're a perfectionist (at least with desktops) and when you finish this "ultimate" desktop, you will make another. ^^
