    Linux Command Line Learning Resources

    The information in this thread has been moved to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CommandLineResources

    A thread for discussion of the wiki page only can be found here

    Thought it'd be handy to compile a thread with online resources for new Linux users who want to learn the command line. I'll link it in my signature.

    MASTER INDEX: Glance over this briefly before posting, to see if we can avoid duplicates. And if we do get duplicates, no big deal. I'll try and keep this list updated with your new posts.
    Below are the links, and the number at the end is the post in which the resource was suggested.

    I know you said online resources cortman, but I thought that I'd add a couple of books I bought when I was starting out. I learn best from physical books, so for anyone else like me;

    I started with "Linux for Dummys" then went out and added the "Linux pocket guide" as a very useful, now highly worn out reference!

    I have added the "Linux; The Complete Reference", but I wouldn't say it's noob friendly in the least - I often find myself re-reading bits 3 years on!

    I got bought the Haynes Manual for Ubuntu Linux for my birthday last year - I knew a lot of it by then, but if anything I would now advise this a the place to start - an excellent intro!

    18 years of IT experience and I still refer to my hard copy too.
    The data in them might be dated, but the techniques are usually still valid.
    What's a landing but a take off in reverse?
    Linux is just "DOS on 'steroids"

    Re: Linux Command Line Learning Resources

    Oh cortman! I cannot believe that you are the first to do this. What a tremendous idea.

    As a fairly new Linux user, even though I've been toying with it since 2004 (Knoppix LiveCD), and using it every day as my main O.S. since early 2010 (a phantasmagorical virus attack hosed my Windows XP), I absolutely love the idea of the command line interface. So simple, fast and effective ... IF ... you know what you're doing, which I DON'T, so I mostly keep to the Ubuntu Software Center and Synaptic Package Manager.

    I've read most of the thread as fast as I could, so I might have missed something, but are you going to try to keep your list of links up to date in the first post? That would be such a great idea, in my opinion, since so many of the most useful threads (and therefore popular) get drowned in a sea of comments ... some few of which include great information, but who reads a whole thread when it's fifty screens long, or more?! Most users on a quest for something probably read the first screen or two, and then the last one or two screens of most recent posts.
    Intrepid User of Xubuntu & LXDE on:
    (1) Dell Latitude, CPi R400GT, PII 400 MHz, 256MB SDRAM, 66MHz.
    (2) Toshiba Portégé 3490CT, PIII 700 MHz, 256MB SDRAM, 100MHz.
    Both using NETGEAR MA521 Wireless PCMCIA (no issues!).

    Thanks for the kind comments, Kixtosh.
    I'm a big fan of the CLI myself. Its sheer power is rather addicting.
    I'm keeping the master index updated daily, and if it ever happens that I can't any more, I'll give someone else control over it.

    Welcome to the Ubuntu Forums Chris

    If you want to you can present yourself in a separate thread.

    And if/when you have problems or questions, please start a new thread with an appropriate and descriptive title, so that people who know about it and are interested in it will find it.
