Fedora 10 Linux Desktop

Book Description
This book examines Fedora 10 for the user. Though administrative tools are covered, the emphasis is on what a user would need to know to perform tasks. The emphasis here is on what users face when using Fedora, covering topics like installation, applications, software management, the GNOME and KDE desktops, shell commands, and both the Fedora administration and network tools. Desktop effects as implemented by GNOME's Compiz-fusion and KDE's KWin are examined. New features are covered in detail like Network Manager with support for wireless 3G and Ethernet, Fedora Printing and PackageKit's new interface, recovery with FirstAidKit, and the RPM Fusion repository for free and nonfree third party packages like multimedia codecs. Also additional desktops and installs are reviewed including XFCE, LXDE, Sugar (OLPC), and Omega (multimedia). The ebook version features hyper-linked overview, contents, index, chapters, sections, and Web sites.
