Ubuntu Terminal Commands

([msg=81506]see Ubuntu Terminal Commands[/msg])

So I'm looking for a comprehensive (and noob friendly) list of all terminal commands. I've typed "help" in the terminal and have been given a pretty big list, but most of it doesn't make sense to me. So I want a comprehensive list so I can make a background wallpaper cheatsheet.

Google hasn't been much help in this. Is there a resource that anyone knows of that'll direct me to such a list?

I did find a few Linux cheat-sheet wallpapers, but I wasn't sure that they were identical (if being "Ubuntu" added, changed, or removed some).

Well awesome-awesome. Thank a ton, Limdis.

If any other nooblings are interested, I'll be making this image into a wallpaper shaped cheatsheet.

Edit: No Sudo apt-get?

Apt-get is Ubuntu (or actually Debian-derived distros) specific. What limdis posted was a general cheat sheet and the commands should work on all. Aptitude/dpkg (Debian), pacman (Arch), yum (Red Hat/Fedora), yast (Suse Linux), there are a lot of different package managers around. Actually, I think you'd need a whole new cheat sheet with all those if you want them for every distro.

Then maybe I need to dedicate a day to exploration of my terminal to make an Ubuntu specific cheat sheet for all of noobling kind!

That's a lot of work for the one command you already know. Though a bit outdated, this cheatsheet might help with Ubuntu specifically.

Ah, that's a darn fine cheat-sheet! Thank you.

Especially since I figured that while I was at work and there was down-time, I'd start on my project. And through my project, I'd be a hero to all nooblings!

HA!

There can't be less than ten thousand commands. And even with the "man" typed first to get an explanation, I still didn't understand what most of them did, for the ones that actually had a manual. Too much, just too much.

Wait until you learn how to use 'apropos'. That command saved me a ton of times getting to the right settings and programs. Aside from that, good luck with your project (whatever it is you're doing). The best way to learn is by teaching yourself, so projects go a long way. :D
