Linux Mint via Terminal

Post by ilya40umov » Mon Jun 18, 2018 8:52 am

Hey Guys,

In a pursuit to systematize my knowledge around Linux and in particular the command line, I have created a quick reference of terminal commands / programs that are at times difficult to remember (at least for me), but are absolutely required to perform certain tasks without having to leave the terminal. I thought that the end result might be also useful for other people, so I'm posting it here:
https://github.com/ilya40umov/linux-mint-via-terminal

Also, if you have any comments / corrections, please feel free to add them here and I'll do my best to take them into account.

Cheers!

Sweet! Bookmarked it. I didn't know about the tldr command, that also looks very useful.

That is the Single Best Tutorial that I have seen for a newbie trying to "get it together".

My first efforts a year ago were pathetic, and I had a single page Crib Sheet Tutorial of only the rudimentary commands.

this goes in my permanent toolbox
