This guide assumes that you have logged in to your RISC iX workstation as user 'desktop', as detailed in the R140 Operations Guide. This guide tells you how to use X.desktop. It's a short guide, because X.desktop is so easy to use.
This guide is for all new X.desktop users. X.desktop runs. on RISC iX workstations, but this guide doesn't assume you're familiar with UNIX or C. The person who supplied your system may have added some extra features, but this guide covers all features in the standard distribution of X.desktop.
However, the guide does assume that you're familiar with using a mouse and keyboard, and with the idea of different types of computer files. See the R 140 Operations Guide for an introduction to the RI40 keyboard and mouse.
The guide is organised into short sections covering different aspects of using X.desktop. This is to help you work quickly through the guide and learn how to use X.desktop as you go along.
