Google Chrome for Linux



4 Linux

Requirements: Intel Pentium 4 / Athlon 64 or later CPU; 32- or 64-bit Ubuntu 8.04 or later, or 32-bit Debian 5. Support for other Linux distributions is planned; unpacking the .deb files by hand may work.

Note: Installing Google Chrome will add the Google repository so your system will automatically keep Chrome up to date. If you don't want Google's repository, do "sudo touch /etc/default/google-chrome" before installing the package.
Download and install the package appropriate for your system (just clicking on it should do the right thing):




    Have fun !

      Ohh noo it crashed ! Wherez Ctrl Alt Delete in Linux ??

      Where's Ctrl Alt Delete in Linux ?

      Some may say that programs dont crash in Linux, but the fact is sometimes it does.
      And when Windows users start using Linux, they unconsciously press Ctrl Alt Delete but nothing happens! and the user will go nuts!.In Windows Ctrl Alt Delete is the set of shortcut keys used to open Windows Task Manager, which is used to force quit the freezed "Not Responding" program using "End Process".

      What do I do when a Program Crash in Linux ?
      Linux gurus may say that you can open a shell and use command kill *PID*.
      But the thing is when a program freezes up, it kind of takes down all the programs around it making it very hard to open a shell and type something in it. Accept it, it sucks!

      But There's an easier way, to force quit a freezed program in Linux
      I'm going to base this tutorial on Ubuntu Linux.

      "Force Quitting" 
      Force quitting a program in Linux is equivalent to ending a process in Windows.
      To force quit a freezed/misbehaving application in Ubuntu we can use Force Quit, which is a tool available by default in Ubuntu to force quit misbehaving applications.

      Force Quit - Force a misbehaving application to quit
      In Ubuntu
      Right click the GNOME Panel (applications bar) > Add to Panel >  Scroll down the list select Force Quit and click Add.

      Force Quit Icon
      The process should add the force quit icon to the applications bar(GNOME Panel).
      Now you can force quit any application by clicking on the Force Quit icon and  selecting the misbehaving application.

      Thats it !
      Have fun!

      How to read CHM Files in Linux

      How to read CHM Files in Linux

      Damn! I tried to open a chm file (Compiled HTML windows crap file)
      OK..lets get down to business//



      What are CHM files
      CHM is an kind of an acronym for Microsoft Compiled HTML Help.
      As you can see as long as Microsoft is involved here, it must be something restricted in Linux. In Linux CHM files are a "non-standard file format". So that means you cant open CHM files in Linux.
      Picture this: If you downloaded a CHM file from a Ubuntu, you'd have to restart your pc and boot in to windows to read that file. But NOT ANY MORE !

      How to Read CHM files in Linux
      To read CHM files in Linux, you'd have to install a utility named xCHM.
      In any Debian-based Linux (Ubuntu, Mint, DSL, Knoppix, Linspire) it is simple as this.

      sudo apt-get install xchm


      In Ubuntu, xCHM is is installed under
      Applications > Office > xCHM

      Now you can use xCHM to read CHM files.
      Have fun !

      How to Extract RAR files in Linux

      How to Extract RAR files in Linux

      In Linux we dont have a Winrar, but we have a Unrar.
      Unrar is a command line decompression tool for RAR extraction in Linux.Once installed it also adds RAR support to File Roller (Archive manager for GNOME).


      How to Install Unrar

      In Ubuntu
      # apt-get install unrar

       In Fedora
      #yum install unrar

      Or you can download the Unrar tool from official Rarlab site directly and then install it.


      After downloading , extract it from the tar file and use ./unrar to run Unrar.

      $ tar -zxvf rarlinux-3.6.0.tar.gz

      $ cd rar
      $ ./unrar
      Decompressing a RAR file with Unrar


      Use this command to extract RAR files:

      $ unrar e files.rar

      Replace files.rar with the path and name of the RAR file that you want to extract.
      The files will be extracted to the current directory of the RAR file.

      DirectX Explained

      DirectX Explained


      Ever wondered just what that enigmatic name means?
      Gaming and multimedia applications are some of the most satisfying programs you can get for your PC, but getting them to run properly isn’t always as easy as it could be. First, the PC architecture was never designed as a gaming platform. Second, the wide-ranging nature of the PC means that one person’s machine can be different from another. While games consoles all contain the same hardware, PCs don’t: the massive range of difference can make gaming a headache.


      To alleviate as much of the pain as possible, Microsoft needed to introduce a common standard which all games and multimedia applications could follow – a common interface between the OS and whatever hardware is installed in the PC, if you like. This common interface is DirectX, something which can be the source of much confusion.

      DirectX is an interface designed to make certain programming tasks much easier, for both the game developer and the rest of us who just want to sit down and play the latest blockbuster. Before we can explain what DirectX is and how it works though, we need a little history lesson.

      DirectX history
      Any game needs to perform certain tasks again and again. It needs to watch for your input from mouse, joystick or keyboard, and it needs to be able to display screen images and play sounds or music. That’s pretty much any game at the most simplistic level.

      Imagine how incredibly complex this was for programmers developing on the early pre-Windows PC architecture, then. Each programmer needed to develop their own way of reading the keyboard or detecting whether a joystick was even attached, let alone being used to play the game. Specific routines were needed even to display the simplest of images on the screen or play a simple sound.

      Essentially, the game programmers were talking directly to your PC’s hardware at a fundamental level. When Microsoft introduced Windows, it was imperative for the stability and success of the PC platform that things were made easier for both the developer and the player. After all, who would bother writing games for a machine when they had to reinvent the wheel every time they began work on a new game? Microsoft’s idea was simple: stop programmers talking directly to the hardware, and build a common toolkit which they could use instead. DirectX was born.

      How it works
      At the most basic level, DirectX is an interface between the hardware in your PC and Windows itself, part of the Windows API or Application Programming Interface. Let’s look at a practical example. When a game developer wants to play a sound file, it’s simply a case of using the correct library function. When the game runs, this calls the DirectX API, which in turn plays the sound file. The developer doesn’t need to know what type of sound card he’s dealing with, what it’s capable of, or how to talk to it. Microsoft has provided DirectX, and the sound card manufacturer has provided a DirectX-capable driver. He asks for the sound to be played, and it is – whichever machine it runs on.

      From our point of view as gamers, DirectX also makes things incredibly easy – at least in theory. You install a new sound card in place of your old one, and it comes with a DirectX driver. Next time you play your favourite game you can still hear sounds and music, and you haven’t had to make any complex configuration changes.

      Originally, DirectX began life as a simple toolkit: early hardware was limited and only the most basic graphical functions were required. As hardware and software has evolved in complexity, so has DirectX. It’s now much more than a graphical toolkit, and the term has come to encompass a massive selection of routines which deal with all sorts of hardware communication. For example, the DirectInput routines can deal with all sorts of input devices, from simple two-button mice to complex flight joysticks. Other parts include DirectSound for audio devices and DirectPlay provides a toolkit for online or multiplayer gaming.

      DirectX versions
      The current version of DirectX at time of writing is DirectX 9.0. This runs on all versions of Windows from Windows 98 up to and including Windows Server 2003 along with every revision in between. It doesn’t run on Windows 95 though: if you have a machine with Windows 95 installed, you’re stuck with the older and less capable 8.0a. Windows NT 4 also requires a specific version – in this case, it’s DirectX 3.0a.

      With so many versions of DirectX available over the years, it becomes difficult to keep track of which version you need. In all but the most rare cases, all versions of DirectX are backwardly compatible – games which say they require DirectX 7 will happily run with more recent versions, but not with older copies. Many current titles explicitly state that they require DirectX 9, and won’t run without the latest version installed. This is because they make use of new features introduced with this version, although it has been known for lazy developers to specify the very latest version as a requirement when the game in question doesn’t use any of the new enhancements. Generally speaking though, if a title is version locked like this, you will need to upgrade before you can play. Improvements to the core DirectX code mean you may even see improvements in many titles when you upgrade to the latest build of DirectX. Downloading and installing DirectX need not be complex, either.

      Upgrading DirectX
      All available versions of Windows come with DirectX in one form or another as a core system component which cannot be removed, so you should always have at least a basic implementation of the system installed on your PC. However, many new games require the very latest version before they work properly, or even at all.

      Generally, the best place to install the latest version of DirectX from is the dedicated section of the Microsoft Web site, which is found at www.microsoft.com/windows/directx. As we went to press, the most recent build available for general download was DirectX 9.0b. You can download either a simple installer which will in turn download the components your system requires as it installs, or download the complete distribution package in one go for later offline installation.

      Another good source for DirectX is games themselves. If a game requires a specific version, it’ll be on the installation CD and may even be installed automatically by the game’s installer itself. You won’t find it on magazine cover discs though, thanks to Microsoft’s licensing terms.

      Diagnosing problems
      Diagnosing problems with a DirectX installation can be problematic, especially if you don’t know which one of the many components is causing your newly purchased game to fall over. Thankfully, Microsoft provides a useful utility called the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, although this isn’t made obvious. You won’t find this tool in the Start Menu with any version of Windows, and each tends to install it in a different place.

      The easiest way to use it is to open the Start Menu’s Run dialog, type in dxdiag and then click OK. When the application first loads, it takes a few seconds to interrogate your DirectX installation and find any problems. First, the DirectX Files tab displays version information on each one of the files your installation uses. The Notes section at the bottom is worth checking, as missing or corrupted files will be flagged here.

      The tabs marked Display, Sound, Music, Input and Network all relate to specific areas of DirectX, and all but the Input tab provide tools to test the correct functioning on your hardware. Finally, the More Help tab provides a useful way to start the DirectX Troubleshooter, Microsoft’s simple linear problem solving tool for many common DirectX issues.

      Delete Files From The Recent File List In Windows

      Delete Files From The Recent File List In Windows

      This tip requires a change to the Windows Registry. Please see the MSFN Guide "Backup Your Registry" if you are new to the Windows Registry.

      Windows Media Player (WMP) is a built-in application that allows you to play multimedia files. Like many other applications, WMP remembers the most recently played files and displays them in the Recent File List under the File menu. This feature is useful if you regularly play certain files, but you may want to clear the list if you share the computer and a user account or create archives and CDs.

      There are two ways you can clear the list:

      I. The ClearMRU.exe Utility is available for free in the Windows Media Player Bonus Pack from Microsoft, but Microsoft does not support this tool.

      II. You can also manually delete the list through the Windows Registry:

      1. Start the Windows Registry Editor, regedit.exe, by typing regedit in the Windows Run Command Line.

      2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Player\RecentFileList.

      3. Delete the RecentFileList subkey.

      4. If you've also streamed content from the Internet, you can delete the RecentURLList subkey.

      5. Exit the Registry Editor.

      6. Restart the computer.

      To keep certain files in the list, don't delete the entire key. Deleting individual entries within the key will get rid of the files that you no longer want in the Recent File List.

      The boot logo works a LOT different from Windows 95/98/ME, you can't simply
      make a bitmap and name it logo.sys for it to work. Its a long process, but
      here we go:

      First thing you need is to get Resource Hacker, which can be found at
      http://www.rpi.net.au/~ajohnson/resourcehacker/, Install the program and
      open it.

      Using Resource Hacker head to ntoskrnl.exe (located C:\WINNT\System32), open
      it. Go to Bitmap > 1, click Action - Save [Bitmap : 1], save the file to your
      hard drive.

      Open your favorite graphics editor, and modify the boot logo to your liking.
      Now save it, make ABSOLUTELY SURE that the new file is in 16 colors! (16 not
      16-bit) If the file is higher than 16 colors you WILL NOT see your boot screen
      you'll be greeted instead by a nice Black Screen.

      If you need help making the colors into 16 color instead of high color, read
      this paragraph, if not skip. First download Paint Shop Pro 7 (www.jasc.com),
      open your bitmap with the program. Now with the image open:
      - Click Colors > Decrease Color Depth
      - Click 16 Colors
      - Click OK
      - Save the file as a bitmap

      Now, run Resource Hacker again, open ntoskrnl.exe again.
      - Click Action > Replace Bitmap
      - Highlight 1, click Open file with new bitmap
      - Open your new boot logo file
      - Click Replace
      - Click Close
      - Click File - Save As..
      - Save file as kernel2.exe in C:\WINNT\System32


      Now we need to add it to boot options:
      - Click Start > Run.. > type command > click OK
      - type attrib boot.ini -r -a -s -h, press enter
      - now open C:\ through explorer and edit boot.ini using a text editor
      - Copy and Paste the existing "Windows 2000 Professional" entry
      - Change ONE of the "Windows 2000 Professional" entries to your liking
      - after '/fast detect' add '/kernel=kernel2.exe'
      - Click File > Save
      - Click Start, Run.. > type command
      - now type attrib boot.ini +r +a +s +h

      FINALLY, reboot your machine and select the new entry you created when you
      modified boot.ini. Volia! your logo should now appear!

      If you want to use your logo everytime without the boot menu:
      - Right-click on My Computer
      - Click Advanced Tab
      - Highlight the modified entry under 'Default operating system'
      - Uncheck 'Display list of operating systems for'
      - click ok
      - click ok again

      s0me c00l stuff I f0und !!

      Getting started with Linux for nOObs!

      I. What is Linux?
      II. Trying it out
      III. Installing
      IV. What to do now
      V. The Console

      Intro:
      This tutorial is written with the total Linux n00b in mind.
      I've seen too many n00bs get totally left in the dark by asking what
      the best distro is. They seem to only get flooded with too many
      answers in so short a time. I'm a little bit of a n00b too, so I know
      how it feels. I will cover a grand total of two basic distros. You may
      learn to strongly prefer other ones (I do!) but this is just to get
      you started. I touch on a number of topics that would be impossible to
      go into in depth in one tutorial, so I encourage you to actively seek
      out more about the concepts I make reference to.


      I. What is Linux?

      Linux is basically an operating system (OS for short). The Windows
      machine you're (probably) using now uses the Mcft Windows
      operating system.

      Ok, so what's so different about Linux?

      Linux is part of a revolutionary movement called the open-source
      movement. The history and intricacies of that movement are well beyond
      the scope of this tutorial, but I'll try and explain it simply. Open
      source means that the developers release the source code for all their
      customers to view and alter to fit what they need the software to do,
      what they want the software to do, and what they feel software should
      do. Linux is a programmer?s dream come true, it has the best compilers,
      libraries, and tools in addition to its being open-source. A
      programmer's only limit then, is his knowledge, skill, time, and
      resolve.

      What is a distro?

      A distro is short for a distribution. It's someone's personal
      modification or recreation of Linux.

      What do you mean by distros? I just want Linux!

      Since Linux is open source, every developer can write his own version.
      Most of those developers release their modifications, or entire
      creations as free and open source. A few don't and try to profit from
      their product, which is a topic of moral debate in the Linux world.
      The actual Linux is just a kernel that serves as a node of
      communication between various points of the system (such as the CPU,
      the mouse, the hard drive etc.). In order to use this kernel, we must
      find a way to communicate with it. The way we communicate is with a
      shell. Shells will let us enter commands in ways that make sense to
      us, and send those commands to the kernel in ways that makes sense to
      it. The shell most Linux's use it the BASH shell (Bourne Again SHell).
      The kernel by itself will not do, and just a shell on top of the kernel
      won?t either for most users; we are then forced to use a distribution.

      What distro is best?

      This is not the question you want to ask a large number of people at
      one time. This is very much like asking what kind of shoe is best,
      you'll get answers anywhere from running shoes, hiking boots, cleats,
      to wingtips. You need to be specific about what you plan on using
      Linux for, what system you want to use it on, and many other things. I
      will cover two that are quick and easy to get running. They may not be
      the best, or the quickest, or the easiest, or the most powerful, but
      this is a guide for getting started, and everyone has to start
      somewhere.

      How much does it cost?

      computer + electricity + internet + CD burner and CDs = Linux
      I'll let you do your own math.
      Note however that a few do charge for their distros, but they aren't
      all that common, and can be worked around. Also, if you lack internet
      access or a CD burner or CDs or you just want to, you can normally
      order CDs of the distro for a few dollars apiece.



      II. Trying it out.

      Wouldn't it stink if you decide to wipe out your hard drive and install
      Linux as the sole operating system only to learn that you don't know
      how to do anything and hate it? Wouldn?t it be better to take a test
      drive? 95 out of a 100 of you know where I'm heading with this section
      and can therefore skip it. For those of you who don't know, read on.

      There are many distros, and most distros try to have something that
      makes them stand out. Knoppix was the first live-CD distro. Although
      most of the other main distros have formed their own live-CDs, Knoppix
      is still the most famous and I will be covering how to acquire it.

      A live-CD distro is a distribution of Linux in which the entire OS can
      be run off of the CD-ROM and your RAM. This means that no installation
      is required and the distro will not touch your hard disk or current OS
      (unless you tell it to). On bootup, the CD will automatically detect
      your hardware and launch you into Linux. To get back to Windows, just
      reboot and take the CD out.

      Go to the Knoppix website (www.knoppix.com). Look around some to get
      more of an idea on what Knoppix is. When you're ready, click Download.
      You'll be presented with a large amount of mirrors, some of which have
      ftp and some of which have http also.

      note: the speed of the mirrors vary greatly, and you may want to
      change mirrors should your download be significantly slow.

      Choose a mirror. Read the agreement and choose accept. You'll probably
      want to download the newest version and in your native language (I'll
      assume English in this tutorial). So choose the newest file ending in
      -EN.iso

      note: you might want to also verify the md5 checksums after the
      download, if you don't understand this, don't worry too much. You just
      might have to download it again should the file get corrupted (you'll
      have to anyway with the md5). Also, a lot of times a burn can be
      botched for who-knows what reason. If the disk doesn?t work at all,
      try a reburn.

      Once the .iso file is done downloading, fire up your favorite
      CD-burning software. Find the option to burn a CD image (for Nero, this
      is under copy and backup) and burn it to a disk. Make sure you don't
      just copy the .iso, you have to burn the image, which will unpack all
      the files onto the CD.

      Once the disk is done, put it in the CD-ROM drive and reboot the
      computer. While your computer is booting, enter CMOS (how to get to
      CMOS varies for each computer, some get to it by F1 or F2 or F3, etc.)
      Go to the bootup configuration and place CD-ROM above hard disk. Save
      changes and exit. Now, Knoppix will automatically start. You will be
      presented with a boot prompt. Here you can input specific boot
      parameters (called cheatcodes), or just wait and let it boot up using
      the default.

      note: Sometimes USB keyboards do not work until the OS has somewhat
      booted up. Once you?re actually in Knoppix, your USB keyboard should
      work, but you may not be able to use cheatcodes. If you need to,
      attach a PS/2 keyboard temporarily. Also, if a particular aspect of
      hardware detection does not work, look for a cheatcode to disable it.
      Cheatcodes can be found on the Knoppix website in text format (or in
      HTML at www.knoppix.net/docs/index.php/CheatCodes).

      Upon entering the KDE desktop environment, spend some time exploring
      around. Surf the web, get on IM, play some games, explore the
      filesystem, and whatever else seems interesting. When your done, open
      up the console (also called terminal, xterm, konsole, or even shell)
      and get ready for the real Linux. See section V for what to do from
      here.

      note: to function as root (or the superuser) type su.


      It's not entirely necessary that you are a console wizard at this point
      (although you will need to be sooner or later), but a little messing
      around wont hurt.

      Just as there are many Linux distros, so there are also many types of
      Knoppix. I won?t go into using any of them, but they should all be
      somewhat similar. Some of them include: Gnoppix, Knoppix STD, Morphix,
      and PHLAK. Other distros also have live-CDs.

      III. Installing

      I will guide you through the installation of Fedora Core 2. The reason
      I chose Fedora is because it contains the Anaconda installer, which is
      a very easy installer.

      Download the discs from here:
      http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedo...ore/2/i386/iso/
      If the link doesn?t work, then go to www.redhat.com and navigate your
      way to downloading Fedora (odds are your architecture is i386).
      You will want to download the FC2-i386-disc1.iso and burn it using the
      method for Knoppix. Do the same for all the discs.

      Note: do NOT download the FC2-i386-SRPMS-disc1.iso files.

      Now, once you?re ready, insert disc 1 into the drive and reboot.

      The installer should come up automatically (if not, then see the
      Knoppix section on CMOS).

      Note: installer may vary depending on version. Follow directions best
      you can using your best judgement.

      1. Language: choose English and hit enter
      2. Keyboard: choose us (probably) and hit enter
      3. Installation media: choose local CDROM (probably) and hit enter
      4. CD test: you can choose to test or skip
      5. Intro: click next
      6. Monitor: choose your monitor to the best of your ability, if you?re unsure, choose on of the generic ones
      7. Installation type: choose which ever you want (default should be fine)
      8. Partition: choose to automatically partition (unless you know what you?re doing)
      9. Partition: the default partitions should suffice
      10. Boot loader: choose your boot loader (grub for default)
      11. Network settings: choose the correct settings for your network (generally, don?t mess with anything unless you know what you?re doing)
      12. Firewall: you can choose a firewall if you want to
      13. Language support: choose any additional language support you want
      14. Time zone: pick your time zone
      15. Root password: set your root password (root is the admin, or superuser; you want it to be very secure)
      16. Packages: choose which packages you want to install. For hard drives over 10 gigs, you can go ahead and choose all
      packages (depending on how much disk space you plan on taking up later, note that most everything you?ll need is a package: the exception
      being large media files). You will generally want to install all the packages you think you?ll ever need. Two desktop environments aren?t necessary.
      Make sure you have at least one and the X window system! (if you want a GUI that is). I suggest you get all the servers too.

      Note: Knoppix uses the KDE Desktop environment

      17. Make sure everything is all right, and install
      18. You can create a boot disk if you want

      Note: Desktop environments might have a set-up once you enter them

      IV What to do now

      Now that you have a Linux set-up and running, there are many paths you
      can head down. First, you should explore your GUI and menus. Browse
      the web with Mozilla, get on IM with GAIM, play games, add/delete
      users, check out OpenOffice, and anything else that might be part of
      your daily use. Also, set up a few servers on your computer to play
      around with, specifically SMTP (*wink*wink*), FTP (vsftp is a good
      one), and either telnet or SSH (OpenSSH is a good one). The setup and
      use of these are beyond the scope of this tutorial, but researching
      them could prove to be very educational.

      The filesystem
      The Linux (and Unix) filesystem is different from the normal Windows
      that you?re used to. In Windows, your hard drive is denoted ?C:\? (or
      whatever). In Linux, it is called the root directory and is denoted
      ?/?. In the / directory, there are several default folders, including
      dev (device drivers) mnt (mount) bin (binaries) usr (Unix System
      Resources) home, etc, and others. I encourage you to explore around
      the whole file system (see section V) and research more.

      Once you are well situated, it?s time to get into the heart and power
      of Linux: the console. The next session will guide you through it and
      set you on the path to finding out how to do stuff for yourself. You
      will (probably) want to start learning to rely less and less on the
      GUI and figure out how to do everything through the console (try
      launching all your programs from the console, for example).

      V. The Console

      The Console might look familiar to DOS if you?ve ever used it. The
      prompt should look something like the following:

      AvatharTri@localhost avathartri$

      With the blinking _ following it. This can vary greatly as it is fully
      customizable. Let?s get started with the commands.

      First, let?s explore the file system. The command ls will "list" the
      files in the current directory. Here?s an example:

      AvatharTri@localhost avathartri$ ls

      It should then display the contents of the current directory if there
      are any. Almost all commands have options attached to them. For
      example, using the -l option, which is short for "long" will display
      more information about the files listed.

      AvatharTri@localhost avathartri$ ls -l

      We will get into how to find out the options for commands and what
      they do later.

      The second command to learn will be the cd command, or "change
      directory". To use it, you type cd followed by a space and the
      directory name you wish to go into. In Linux, the top directory is /
      (as opposed to C:\ in Windows). Let?s get there by using this command:

      AvatharTri@localhost avathartri$ cd /
      AvatharTri@localhost /$

      Now, we are in the top directory. Use the ls command you learned
      earlier to see everything that?s here. You should see several items,
      which are directories. Now, let?s go into the home directory:

      AvatharTri@localhost /$ cd home
      AvatharTri@localhost home$

      And you can now ls and see what?s around. In Linux there are some
      special symbol shortcuts for specific folders. You can use these
      symbols with cd, ls, or several other commands. The symbol ~ stands
      for your home folder. One period . represents the directory your
      currently in. Two periods .. represent the directory immediately above
      your own. Here?s an example of the commands:

      AvatharTri@localhost home$ cd ~
      AvatharTri@localhost avathartri$

      This moved us to our user?s personal directory.

      AvatharTri@localhost avathartri$ cd .
      AvatharTri@localhost avathartri$ cd ..
      AvatharTri@localhost home$

      The cd .. moved us up to the home directory.
      As you?ve probably noticed by now, the section behind the prompt
      changes as you change folders, although it might not always be the
      case as it?s up to the personal configuration.

      You can use these symbols with the ls command also to view what is in
      different folders:

      AvatharTri@localhost home$ ls ~
      AvatharTri@localhost home$ ls ..

      And you can view what is in a folder by specifying its path:

      AvatharTri@localhost home$ ls /
      AvatharTri@localhost home$ ls /home

      The last command we will cover as far as finding your way around the
      filesystem is the cat command. The cat command will show the contents
      of a file. Find a file by using the cd and ls commands and then view
      its contents with the cat command.

      AvatharTri@localhost home$ cd [directory]
      AvatharTri@localhost [directory]$ ls
      AvatharTri@localhost [directory]$ cat [filename]

      Where [directory] is the directory you want to view and [filename] is
      the name of the file you want to view. Omit the brackets. Now, if the
      file you viewed was a text file, you should see text, but if it wasn?t,
      you might just see jumbled garbage, but this is ok. If the file goes
      by too fast and goes off the screen, don?t worry, we will get to how
      to scroll through it later.

      One of the most useful commands is the man command, which displays the
      "manual" for the command you want to know more about. To learn more
      about the ls command:

      AvatharTri@localhost home$ man ls

      And you will see the manual page for ls. It displays the syntax, a
      description, options, and other useful tidbits of information. Use the
      up and down arrows to scroll and press q to exit. You can view the
      manual pages for any command that has one (most commands do). Try this
      out with all the commands that you know so far:

      AvatharTri@localhost home$ man cd
      AvatharTri@localhost home$ man cat
      AvatharTri@localhost home$ man man

      One very crucial option to the man command is the -k option. This will
      search the descriptions of manual pages for the word you specify. You
      can use this to find out what command to do what you need to do. For
      example, let?s say we want to use a text editor:

      AvatharTri@localhost home$ man -k editor

      And you should see a list of apps with a short description and the
      word "editor" in the description.

      With a blank prompt, you can hit tab twice for Linux to display all
      the possible commands. For Linux to display all the commands beginning
      with a certain letter or series of letters, type those letters and hit
      tab twice.

      Note: This is actually a function of BASH and not Linux, but BASH is
      the default Linux shell.

      Now that you know a little about moving around the filesystem and
      viewing manual pages, there is one more trick that we will cover to
      help you out. Remember how the man pages were scrollable as in you
      could use the arrow keys to scroll up and down? That is because the
      man pages use something called the less pager. We?re not going to go
      into what this does exactly and how it works, but that?s definitely
      something that you will want to look up. Here?s how to use the less
      pager with a file:

      AvatharTri@localhost home$ cat [filename] | less

      That uses something called a pipe. The line is the vertical line above
      enter on your keyboard. Briefly, what this does is take the output
      from the cat command, and stick it in the less pager. By doing this,
      you can view files that would normally run off the screen and scroll
      up and down.

      Some final commands to check out:

      mkdir - make directories
      cp - copy file
      mv - move file
      rm - remove file
      rmdir - remove directory
      grep - search a file for a keyword
      pwd - display current working directory
      top - display system resources usage (kill the program with control + c)
