    Hi! I've been working through http://cli.learncodethehardway.org/book/ and what I've read so far seems pretty good.

    Hi to all reading this thread,

    You may also obtain some benefit from NewDocs which as well as having over 950 pages of Ubuntu Documentation, has a handy Links Page which you may find useful.

    Cheers -

    I have found this very handy as well. I have found all of the books I have read by Mr Shaw very well written and good at teaching you in a way that is fun.

    http://overapi.com/linux/ links to a cheat sheet I have found useful: http://www.pixelbeat.org/cmdline.html

    Re: Linux Command Line Learning Resources

    Hey guys. I'm a new-ish Ubuntu 13.04 user. Are there any tutorials which will walk me through most commands for the Terminal? I know a fair amount already, such as extracting tarballs, making/removing directories and files, changing owner/mode, moving through directories, finding and killing a process using "ps -aef | grep [program here]", long lists and short lists, and changing passwords.

    I know it's not much to go off of for sure, but what else can I do to learn as much as possible with any tutorials there are? I looked at the first post and followed the link but to be honest it's all a bit much for me to go through.

    Don't know if good place to ask.. but:

    Ubuntu 12.04 has a Screenshot app, which can be launched via gui. How do I launch this app via terminal? Just typing Screenshot does nothing.

    Re: Linux Command Line Learning Resources

    Code:
    gnome-screenshot --interactive
    You can leave off the "--interactive" part to just take a full screen shot from terminal.

    You can find the command to run just about anything by navigating to /usr/share/applications and looking at the properties of the application shortcut by right clicking. You will see a "command" entry which is what the shortcut uses to call the program.

    Re: Linux Command Line Learning Resources

    one more question.. let's say I use command locate file.txt and the path is displayed. Is there some quick way to cd to that path without typing it and tabbing? I mean is it possible to somehow repeat above path without typing it?

    Edit: just found out that i can write cd ./LastName and will go to this path, but is there other way?

    Re: Linux Command Line Learning Resources

    The command line could be adjustable for easy editing. How would I do this? What I want to to do is to start terminal and switch to an interface for apt editing. If I started my job with apt-get, a prompt [sudo] would appear before, and a list of command prompts [build-dep][install][update][upgrade] which could be built into a .config file for Terminal. The same interface could switch for other jobs, such builds could greatly speed up the command-line process. This would be good for speed-editing. Why I don't edit Terminal for myself is I am a newbie. I don't know if this program already exists in a native state or if Terminal is editable this way or not. It would be faster though for someone using command-line a lot, wouldn't it?
