Linux terminal commands for beginner
« on: May 11, 2013, 03:23:06 pm »
I loaded windows 7 on a new hard disk and caddy to just get use to it because XP will soon not be supported. Windows 7 is really awful (I wont go into the details)  but I need windows for the programmes that wont run in Linux.  What I need now is a book for a Linux beginner of terminal commands or a way of building or understanding the system of commands.  I run Ubuntu on an interrnal caddy. 12:05.   I don't want to pay PC World prices for books.     If I know what to look for I would try other sources.

Hi Bill

Here's a link to a free manual, http://ubuntu-manual.org/  you may need an ebook reader, if you dont have one I can reccomend Calibre, you'll find in  synaptic or the software centre




Good luck



Graeme

Thank you Graeme - my trawl of the web failed to find this very useful manual.

Thanks. 145 pages download,  I found the same book on Amazon for Ubuntu 12:10 quite cheaply and ordered it.
