    Command line

    Hey everyone, I'm new to Linux and am currently running Ubuntu Desktop 10.10. I have been searching for 3 days for a list of commands for the command line. Does anyone know of a list for this version of Ubuntu?

    Welcome to Ubuntuforums
    I am not well versed in command line use, but if you go to the Ubuntu site there is a page giving some details/commands.

    The command line in Ubuntu is Bash (Bourne Again Shell). It is standard to most new Linux Operating Systems.
    That being said, a good reference list of commands is this. I use it quite often.
    If you are looking to learn how to use the command line, I recommend The Linux Command Line, available for free from the link. It is very good and teaches the Command Line step by step.

    In terminal, hit Tab twice. All the commands, close to 3000, will be displayed.

    Or visit http://ss64.com/bash/ and http://linuxcommand.org/

    Re: Command line

    I found this site that has been very helpful

    http://www.oreillynet.com/linux/cmd/

    I use this mostly when I find a cmd that is suppose to fix a problem and I don't know what the cmd or the options do.
