Hi all!
I need to delete a directory owned by root but I dont know the terminals command.
I'd like to know also where I could find a list of common terminal commands, I often need to do things but I have troubles searching commands.

Get a linux book.

You'd have to switch over to root or sudo rm -r [name of dir]
