    Re: Share your commandline cheat sheets

    Here's a simple but good one to help you find the name of a command:

    Code:
    ls /usr/bin | grep "searchterm"
    Or for root commands

    Code:
    ls /usr/sbin | grep "searchterm"

    My cheat sheet is quite obvious.

    If the command you want to find begins with "searchterm", you can just use tab-completion to do the search by entering the the search term, and then hitting tab twice to see a list of commands that begin with your search term, for example:
    Code:
    user@ubuntu-computer:~$ wh     <--press TAB twice and get:
    whatis    which     whiptail  whoami    
    whereis   while     who       whoi
    Of course tab-completion will search all paths in your $PATH, so if you specifically want to search /usr/bin or /usr/sbin, then your method would work. Also, if you want to search for "update-grub" by entering "grub", you would have to use something like your method since the tab completion would only find commands that start with "grub", like "grub-install".
