Working on Your Own

After working your way through today's tutorial, you should have a good feel for opening the pre-installed productivity tools that come with the K desktop. Try using the useful applets discussed above. And try using the other useful tools in the KDE menu too.

If you do not know how to use any of these productivity applets, simply click on the Help menu on the applet's Menu bar.

There are brief treatments of the KDE 1.x kEdit and kCalc productivity tools in Chapter 14, Practical KDE by Dennis Powell from QUE Books ($30. ISBN: 0-7897-2216-X). KView and KPaint are covered in Chapter 16.

Practical KDE is a good book for help with learning to use the K Desktop. However, KDE now is up to the version 2 level, yet this is a KDE 1.x book rather than a KDE 2 book. If you happen to have Practical KDE on your bookshelf give chapters 14 and 16 a once over for additional information about the KDE 1.x productivity tools.

Conclusion

Starting and using pre-installed productivity tools on Linux-based computers can be very much the same as using pre-installed productivity tools on MS Windows PCs -- especially if you have set your Linux desktop to look and feel similar to the MS Windows desktop. Moreover, it's just as easy.

There are more pre-installed productivity tools on both the Caldera OpenLinux eDesktop 2.4 and Red Hat Linux 7 distributions than there are pre-installed productivity tools in MS Windows. Of course there are lots of additional productivity tools available for the MS Windows platform. However, there are lots of additional productivity tools available for the Linux platform too.
