    Smile Some Questions

    Hi

    First of all, I would like to thank you very much guys for your answers, I am a newbie for Ubuntu and linux, so you will see some trivial or simple questions for you, but not for me.

    I have some simple questions:
    First: How can i know the version of Ubuntu?
    Second: How can I know the architecture?
    Thrid: From where can I get a document that explains the terminal commands and its usage, like (sudo, apt-install, etc).

    Thank you in advance
    Jotnarta

    open the first tab and you fill find the specifications like about your cpu and versoin.
    For terminal usage, just type man in front of command in the terminal, like for example,
    Code:
    man sudo

    Re: Some Questions

    Hi to find the version press the blue 'Help' button on the top panel adn press 'New to Ubuntu?'; or, open a terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal) and write or paste:
    Code:
    cat /etc/issue
    or
    Code:
    cat /etc/lsb-release
    To find which architecture you're running:
    Code:
    uname -m
    If the output is i386 or i686, it's 32 bits; if it's x86_64, then it's 64 bits.

    The gnome-system-monitor (System->Administration-> System Monitor) shows you which processes are running, how much memory is being used, and lets you end (or kill) processes.

    EDIT: If you want to kill processes, you can make a button: Right-click on the top panel, select 'Add to panel...', double click on 'Custom Application Launcher' and fill it out like this:

    Type: Application
    Name:Xkill
    Command:xkill
    Comment: (leave empty if you wish)

    Please note that killing applications isn't recommended.
