Your mother will love the adorable kung fu kitten on the cover so much she'll forgive you for migrating her system from Windows. The three hundred tips apply to any Gnome-based desktop and include something for users at every level. Examples include installing Googlizer to allow instant Google searching from selected text in any document (including pdfs); using symbolic links to create shortcuts without running into trouble with permissions; bulk renaming photos with meaningful names instead of camera-generated numbers; and using gnome-blog to update blogs directly from the desktop. A quick guide to Ubuntu administration is also included. Distributed in the U.S. by O'Reilly Media.
