    create new directory in terminal ?

    In an attempt to learn how to use terminal and its magic command-lines, i was hoping that the word "make" would help me create a directory - to my disappointment it wasn't so.

    Can anyone teach me the magic spell i need to use?

    (hope this is the best category i could chose for this post) :-K

    mkdir will do it.

    Yup, for example to make a folder called Ubuntu on your desktop just:

    cd Desktop

    mkdir Ubuntu

    This is amazing. Thank you so much for this link. I am currently devouring this text as we speak. Is there some way that this can be posted in the beginner section? I spent alot of time in there and never found a guide as good as this one (maybe its already there and i just suck) but if its not, it really should be. I found this thread via google, but if this guide had been in the beginner section for me (again if its not already) It would have saved me so much trouble. thank you for your post and your help.

    I'm amazed that after 3 years all the links are still live.

    As far as
    this can be posted in the beginner section
    goes - if we linked everything that might be of some use to someone at some point there would be more than 1 page of stickies

    Have a look in http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=801404 - see if it's there - if it's not PM me and I will add it in.

    However this thread is closed now.
