Here's a trick that you can use over and over again, without having to
understand those complicated icon thingies. Click on the kterm icon
(looks like a computer display monitor). That opens up a window that
gives you direct access to any program on your system! In that
window, type "vi" and press the Enter key; now you're in vi, and you
didn't even need to use a mouse to start it!
You can do that with a lot of programs on your system - try it! Just
leave that kterm window open all the time, and you'll always be able
to start anything! If the program you want to start up is a GUI
program, just append a "&" after the program name, and you'll still be
able to use the kterm to start other stuff! Best of all, now you can
tell your friends you know what to do with a command line interface,
and you don't need no steenking mouse to do things!
