Ebook: Introducing Learn Linux In One Week and Go from Zero to Hero

After the success of our RHCSA / RHCE and LFCS / LFCE certification books, we are now happy to present “Learn Linux In One Week”.

This ebook will walk you through the beginnings of Linux and the contributions of Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman to performing secure file transfers over a network. You’ll learn how to manage users and groups, and to write shell scripts to help automate system administration tasks.

Have little or no experience with Linux? That is not a problem at all. We will provide you with 1 ready-to-go Linux virtual machine that you can use to get started.

On top of it, every chapter comes with exercises to apply what you have learned in that chapter, and we also provide solutions to those exercises.

And believe us, this is only the tip of the iceberg.

  1. Hi,

    Thank you, Ravi, I have received the ebook..so I’m trying it but to download the virtual machine (.ovf file) we must have the key to decrypt and I have not this public decrypt key, thank you to send it to me. Well I m not totally new to Linux and I have an installed VirtualBox that is running, but I love to do it as I was a newbie to test the book.

    So I think that totally newbie can’t install himself a VM as explain in the book because this newbie doesn’t know about Bash command lines and he can’t understand the complexity of vboxdrv etc.. building a piece for the kernel, etc .. maybe the solution if you want to keep this approach, was to make a packaging flatpak or other.

    Best regards and sorry for my bad English. Maybe I use google translate the next time…

    • @Jean,

      Actually, the cloud provider deleted the decrypt key file, I don’t have one right now. The VM is a simple CentOS machine, you can use any CentOS VM to practice the examples in the given book…

  2. I am 84 years old and I want to learn Linux, I have some money but I don’t have a bank account. PLEASE SEND ME A LINK TO SEND MONEY TO YOU FOR YOUR BOOK.

    • Hey, Ravi,

      Kindly share the book with me. I’m a student and I want to learn Linux but I don’t have that much amount of money. I request you to share this book with me in my email id.

  3. As the Oracle, the Stewarts of VirtualBox, are no longer adhering to Open Source guidelines by taking the decision to switch out the BIOS in their hypervisor. It now comes with one that requires compilation by a toolchain that does not meet the definition of Free Software as per the guidelines of the Free Software Foundation.

    Whonix, which heavily relies on VirtualBox (actually two simultaneous instances of VirtualBox containers) is making efforts to change to KVM.

    I think Tecmint should also make efforts to adjust this ebook to use either KVM or QEMU or other alternatives to VirtualBox. This may not be a trivial change, but there is no reason that alternatives to VirtualBox shouldn’t be presented alongside instructions as they are now. Thank You.

  4. Hi,

    I downloaded the e-book and am currently at the chapter of downloading the virtual machine.

    The link provided in the book does not work as there seems to be a decryption key, which I don’t know if I missed out or it is not available in the book.

    I have found a replacement link online, but I just want to point out that this link is not working.


  5. Hi,

    The Ebook: Introducing Learn Linux In One Week and Go from Zero to Hero looks good – but I’d like to see a chapter of this book before purchasing – can you email me a chapter?

  6. I want to learn linux from starting as a beginner. I am not able to open any link. Where could I get the material like as mentioned Chapter-0 and Chapter-1 etc.

  7. I just visit your website so I have be attached about the rich content
    easy to read and comprehensive command linux really is wonderfull work 100% usefull
