This book examines Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 for the desktop user and administrator (covers RHEL 7.4). Though administrative tools are covered, the emphasis is on what a user would need to know to perform tasks. The focus here is on what users face when using Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, covering topics like applications, the GNOME and KDE desktops, shell commands, and the administration and network tools. Desktops are examined in detail, including configuration options. Administration topics are also covered including user management, software management, repositories, services, systemd, system monitoring, shell configuration, encryption, network connections, shared resources, authentication, SELinux, firewalls, shell configuration, backups, and printers.
