So a friend asked me if I knew of a good Ubuntu tutorial or book. I remembered one from a while ago: the Ubuntu Pocket Guide, but it turns out it's from 2008, so it's not really ideal any more.

Are there any others out there that are updated for 10.4 or 10.10?

    there's a dedicated stack for you Gnome-lovin' Ubuntu users. askubuntu.com that's probably a better place for you to ask. over here's consoles and cold Russian nights.

    I am opposed to the Ubuntu-specific q&a site. Nov 22 '10 at 11:16
  • What specifically is he having issues with or would like to learn about? Gnome and KDE have come a long way and are pretty intuitive now. As long as he knows how to open firefox there shouldn't be a need for a "tutorial".

  • @Falmarri - just how to use the system in general. For example, she didn't know how to install software. Nov 22 '10 at 18:03
  • the best tutorial is hands on trial and error, bad as it sounds :P
