Just permanently abandoned Windows, at least I hop so;)
Being struggling with Linux commands. Thanks for the helpful resources!
Again, I remember what it was like when I first started and just remember even the experts started out as newbies.
Welcome aboard, "Journeyhome!"
I'll be honest, learning the command line is difficult. There is so much information to memorise. However, command line tools are so much more convenient than using a GUI.
It is much quicker to type a couple of commands to do something, instead of searching the system for the graphical equivalent.
For anyone who is interested... CLI Companion actually works in Precise.
If you're an Android user, there are apps for JUST THIS type of learning. They are more of supplements to what's already posted here. Here are a few that I use:
Linux Command List
Also, you should be able to get a Terminal Emulator, then install Busy Box (root only) and practice many of the commands.
hello all, i know this section is a little old, however i just wanted to implement my input on another site that has been quite resourceful to me, and it is ss64.com commandline reference.. it includes basic commandline commands from unix to macintosh, i have used this sit in particular along with FOSSWIRE to compile a binder that has commandline references for whenever im in a cross-platform enviroment.. peace.
Has anyone ever made a prioritized list? Most common or most useful commands first? That could be an effective learning tool.
I dunno. If you use the command line often enough you pick it up. ;)
I find a lot of information on IBM's Developer Network site to be useful:
This is the first of over a dozen or so articles that they call "Speaking Unix". I like the examples and explanations they have which go beyond some of the otherwise rather terse manpage texts.
You may want to check whether all this works with Ubuntu/Linux, though, because they mainly talk about AIX. But so far I've had no problems at all in that respect.
