(Solved) Use of terminal

Postby rdh61 » Wed Jun 10, 2009 5:16 am

I'm glad "there are no such things as stupid questions". Here's one that is probably a bit stupid though(?): :?

Is there anywhere an idiots' guide to using terminals? List of common commands and there uses?

Thanks. :?

I recommend the INX liveCD - http://inx.maincontent.net/ It's more designed as a showcase of what the "Command-line" can do, even graphically, but it also has a good command-line tutorial, and a menu interface.
If you have a question that has been answered and solved, then please edit your original post and put a [SOLVED] at the end of your subject header

I find the FOSSwire.com cheat sheet a real handy reference:
