Help with basics I am a newbie who received his new computer from my son loaded with Ubuntu. My problem is I am not familiar with Linux and various commands or what to do with the terminal. I have purchased different books. I guess what I need are basic tutorial's ( right from the beginning) or a online course. Any suggestions.

This (http://www.ee.surrey.ac.uk/Teaching/Unix/) is a nice tutorial for beginners wanting to learn to use the command line.

Try here (http://www.psychocats.net/), it's specifically aimed at ubuntu users.

Welcome to the club! Hope you don't find the transition from Windows/Mac OS/whatever else you are used to too frustrating! ;)

Hope this helps!
