    What a great resource this thread is!

    I found the "The Linux Cookbook: Tips and Techniques for Everyday Use" to be particularly helpful. Following the flow of the chapters step by step and trying the "recipes" along the way really helped.

    As a Ubuntu newbie I have searched many sources for assistance. Finally very pleased with the book: UBUNTU FOR NON-GEEKS, A PAIN-FREE.GET-THINGS-DONE-GUIDE. 4TH EDITION. Available from Amazon.

    Thanks for the contribution... however I think we'll keep this thread focused primarily on the command line. Maybe it'd be a good idea to start a second for general Linux learning?

    Re: Linux Command Line Learning Resources

    Although Linux Command is listed here, the is a PDF called 'The Linux Command Line' by William E Shotts Junior. It's very good... but is 500+ pages long.

    There is also a program called CLI Companion that may help too.

    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.
