Linux Cookbook 2ND Edition Tips & Techniques for Eveby Michael Stutz
Synopses & Reviews
The Linux Cookbook, 2nd Edition is your guide to getting the most out of Linux. Organized by general task (such as working with text, managing files, and manipulating graphics), each section contains a series of step-by-step recipes that help you to get your work done quickly and efficiently, most often from the command line. Nearly 50 percent larger than the first edition, this new edition includes hundreds of new recipes as well as new sections on package management; file conversion; multimedia; working with sound files (including OGG and MP3); Vi text editing; advanced text manipulation; and more. Perfect as an introduction to Linux, or as a desktop reference for the seasoned user. Covers the major Linux distributions.
"...the next best thing to having your own personal guru." — UnixReview.com (praise for the first edition)
Book News Annotation:
Stutz, one of the first reporters to cover Linux and the free software movement in the mainstream press, builds on the some 1,500 "recipes" offered in the last iteration. This hands-on guide is intended to cover all basic tasks, levels, and distributions of Linux (e.g., Red Hat, SuSe, Debian), but not Linux installation, security, system administration, networks, or using Linux for software development. Appendices include information on administrative issues, file name extensions, home directory set-up, and resources. Indexing is by program and concept.
