Learn to use Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn)

Posted on April 28, 2007. Filed under: Training, Ubuntu, UNIX |

Hot on the heels of the celebrated 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) release of Ubuntu comes the Unofficial Ubuntu 7.04 Starter Guide, a free online guide to using the Linux distro.

The guide covers a massive range of subjects, everything from updating Ubuntu to mounting Windows partitions to working with various kinds of hardware. I wouldn’t say it’s a particularly novice-friendly reference, as it assumes some basic Linux know-how on your part (like performing command-line operations). But it certainly is comprehensive, so if you’ve just taken the Feisty Fawn plunge, you’ll definitely want to bookmark this guide.

Learning unix is not so simple. but this can be done in 10 minutes.This is something a professor had given out to students (CAD user training) in years past.
The purpose was to have on one page the basics commands for getting started using the UNIX shell (so that they didn’t call me asking what to do the first time someone gave them a tape).

Introduction to the Unix command line

Posted on February 27, 2007. Filed under: Linux, Tutorial, UNIX |

For those of you who start to glaze over when we sing the praises of the command line but secretly harbor ninja-like shell mastery ambitions, LinuxCommand.org’s got an introduction to the command line for your perusal.

The tutorial is aimed at readers on a Linux desktop, but you can always fire up Cygwin, boot into Knoppix or Damn Small Linux to start your learnin’ without building a whole other machine. Lessons include file manipulation, permissions, output redirection and job management. Doesn’t that sound fun? Don’t forget to check out my introduction to Cygwin series, part 1, 2, and 3, too.
