Research and Markets: Ubuntu Linux Secrets Revealed

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new report "Ubuntu Linux Secrets" to their offering.

While the Ubuntu Linux distribution makes building a Linux system easy, once readers create a Linux system they'll need to know how to use and maintain it. There are dozens of Open Source applications installed by default on the Ubuntu system, with hundreds of other applications easily installed from the Internet. The average Linux user can get overwhelmed with the availability and complexity of the new software. Existing books on Ubuntu Linux cover the basics of creating a new system and show what software is installed. This book digs deeper into the underlying applications and features of the Ubuntu Linux system, providing in-depth information on how to get the most out of each application and system feature.

Ubuntu Linux Secrets shows how to install the Ubuntu Linux distribution in most environments, including non-traditional situations, such as dual-boot and text-based installations. The book then guides the reader through the default configuration of the Ubuntu workstation or server, showing tips on how to modify features for their own environment, and how to keep the system running properly. The book walks the reader through each of the installed applications, both workstation and server applications, showing how to get the most out of each application, rather than just how to use them. The book finishes by providing an overview of programming in the Ubuntu Linux environment for readers wanting to use Ubuntu as a software development platform.

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.
