    Re: Newbie (n00b) 101 -- A place to start

    Joshua,

    Are you available to draft up a "clear and definitive" three liner that I could quote as "canonical" in the main thread?

    There is a lot of confusion on this subject, and we're diving in too deep in technospeak for a newbie-focussed informational thread.

    Simple and clear, and I'll make sure to point everyone in the right direction


    Thanks in advance,

    And mea culpa for opening that can of worms...

    Great thread! Would've saved me a ton of time convincing my dad to let me install it on my laptop. I was hooked after reading a couple Wikipedia articles. (A guy my dad did some work for recommended Linux to me for my programming forays)

    You mean about the difference between sudo and gksu?

    Sudo- "superuser-do" for administrative/root priviledges. Use for commands and applications that run in a command line interface only.

    Gksu- "graphical sudo" for commands and applications that launch a GUI from the terminal. Makes sure you don't mess up file privileges with a graphical application in superuser mode.
