The everyday Linux user can easily get overwhelmed by the complexity of the new software that exists when creating an Ubuntu system. This book covers the basics of creating a new system from scratch and explains what software is installed. You’ll take a tour of installing the Ubuntu Linux distribution system in most environments, including nontraditional situations such as dual-boot and text-based installations. Plus, clear explanations of each of the installed applications show you how to get the most out of each application, rather than simply using them as they exist.

The release of Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise Server version 10 (SLES 10) marked a new era for the Open Source server. SLES 10 was developed with interoperability in mind. It can be integrated seamlessly into existing network environments, both Open Source and proprietary. It provides a manageable, stable, secure, and affordable network environment. The Linux community at large is constantly updating and improving the Linux kernel. Novell generates their revenue by building a support package around SLED 10. The elimination of development costs allows Novell to offer SLED 10 at significantly lower cost that Microsoft's desktop OS. This model makes SLED 10 an affordable and attractive alternative desktop operating system for corporate environments, and many have already adopted it. Companies such as Marriott, CNN, Circuit City, HP, Dell, and Publix have adopted SLES 10, and now Industry certification bodies are recognizing the benefits of SLES 10 as well. As demand increases for this new operating system, the demand for trained Novell Administrators also increases. SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop Administration introduces network professionals to the new server program, and it contains Course Technology's proven academic pedagogy, making this the ideal classroom solution for teaching Novell.

Author: Eric Harlow
Brand: Brand: Sams Publishing
The goal of Developing Linux Applications is to provide a handbook for developers who are moving to the Linux platform. Linux Application Development covers the GTK+ library including GLIB and GDK using C. You'll find information covered no place else--information that Linux developers need in one comprehensive development book. All of the applications and code the author developed for the title have been released under the GPL.
In Developing Linux Applications with GTK+ and GDK, Eric Harlow provides a comprehensive explanation of how to program with the GIMP Toolkit (GTK+) and the Graphics Drawing Kit (GDK). These tools dramatically ease the process of building graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for Linux applications.
Harlow takes a didactic approach to his subject, revealing its details one at a time with a careful explanation of each. He first explains how to build a plain, one-window application and then shows how to enhance it with the help of event handlers, additional GTK+ widgets, and some little-used interface elements. He presents complete examples to illustrate concepts, including a calculator and simple word processing application. Along the way, he does a great job of clearing up often confusing tasks, like creating menu bars and managing layouts.
Before wrapping up, Harlow explains the GDK, which you can use to create custom graphical elements. In a particularly grin-inducing section, he reveals how to write a version of the classic arcade game Defender with the help of the GDK. There's also a segment on creating your own widgets, so you can craft a customized yet consistent look for the programs you create. --David Wall
