Thought there was some sort of list of commands used with terminal.

 

If there is, where? Or am I imagining there was.

 

Thanks

Commands can exist on your system in a lot of different locations depending on your executable paths and how you've installs software. In general you can look in /usr/bin for executables that are installed.

Hmmm, when you hit tab you'd get that list. Narrow down the list by typing the first couple of letters. For example, ls lists things in the current spot; lshw lists your hardware. If you want the manual for lshw, man lshw shows the online manual explaining all about the command lshw.

 

With linux, you get a nice GUI desktop, and the command line interface or CLI. Ctl+Alt+F1, Ctl+Alt+F2, through F7 gives you a few more terminals. Use a little bit of both types of environments. Get more use out of your hardware. At least you won't be wasting time fighting or struggling or doing maintenance. Or paying through the nose.


Unsolicited advice for learning linux, that won't cost you anything

May be should have worded as commonly used terminal commands.

 

Perhaps not even about Bodhi and is was another distro. Also could be thinking about something else altogether.

 

I don't know about me sometimes.  :wacko:

FTFY :) F7 gets you back to the GUI

 

wimc, check youtube for common beginner linux cli commands. A number of channels have posted 10 to 30 minute videos on a number of different, useful CLI commands. If you don't mind repetition, you can skip around. Otherwise, you might consider following any one group of clips from the same channel covering that topic.

 

If youtube isn't your thing, you could even simply search the web for the same or similar search term(s). There are any number of sites that will cover common CLI commands. Make sure you consider beginner commands because you will find sites that cover commands useful for System Administrators (SysAdmin). Even though your install could be used as such, I don't imagine that is the path you are currently following. :)

This is just BASH. There are, of course, many more program-related CLI commands (like dpkg or tzinfo):

That is alot, take it, that is not anywhere close to what is actually in use or out there.

 

Thanks everyone for the information.

Linux Bible has a wealth of information - I have a Cisco "quick reference" book of commands (around 200 pages...evidently that OS's commands would be a book several feet thick in its entirety), I wonder if there is some sort of book/manual for Linux that could be found?  

 

Google/Amazon?

The linux command prompt is a vast sea of commands, but you can get a good start with something like this --

http://www.makeuseof...ou-should-know/

I googled 'linux commands everyone should know' and got a bunch of sites that will help you dip your toe in the water of that vast sea of commands.

:) enjoy!
