With the increasing development of Linux, this time with a look of Linux programs that support the GUI (Graphical User Interface) more and more. With a GUI (Graphical User Interface) so that users increasingly watered down in operating. Consequences from the use of GUI in Linux is primarily a computer of a system with minimum specifications old.
althought GUI has many outstanding, the commands through linux terminal usage we sometimes can not avoid. In some cases the use of linux terminal is absolute. This is encouraging for us to know the basic commands in linux terminal.
For starters, here are some basic commands used in Linux, among others:
This command is used to display the man pages or help from a command. The format looks comfortable, very helpful man command us to walk in this linux terminal.
Examples man man will display the manual pages of the man.
Which stands for present working directory, used to see the full path of directories that are currently active.
This command is used to view the contents of a directory. Penggunannya ls / path, the path can be absolute or relative address, if used without an argument / path will display the contents of the current directory.
Referring to the name which stands for make directory, this command is used to create the directory. By writing the usual run mkdir / path, if the argument / path is not an absolute address of the directory will be created relative to the current directory. Example mkdir / home / userkamu / pilot will try to produce the directory in the user's home directory user
His name was inspired by the change directory, is used to move from one directory to another directory. The argument commonly used is the address of a directory, either relative or absolute. If used without arguments it will call the directory $ HOME. Example cd / etc/X11 will move the current directory to / etc/X11. There are two arguments for this command is special. and .. because the cd. will call the directory itself and the cd .. will move to the directory above it (up one level).
His real name is remove a directory, is used to delete the directory. But it will only remove empty directories. Like his brother the other it can be used with the format rmdir / path.
mv / path / home / path / destination will move a file or directory path from origin to destination. Can also be used to rename a file, provided / path must be the same.
To copy a file path from origin to destination path run the command cp / path / home / path / destination. Unlike that will destroy the original mv, cp will defend it so that it will produce two beams of the same.
Derived from the word remove, used to delete a file with the command rm / name / file, can also be used to remove non empty directory to include the option-rf.
Taken from the disk usage, is used to estimate the disk space usage, the data will be displayed per file. If used without arguments will display the disk space usage on the active directory. The format du / path / target. Use the-h option to display the results easier to read.
Free disk, used to view a blank disk capacity / free. Use the-h option if you want a more pleasing result.
Self-titled debut, is used for cleaning the terminal (screen).
Displays information about processes that are running / walking in the system. There are many options that can be given to this command, salau them is the aux which will show the entire process in the system.
Almost the same with only top-ps displays information that is always up to date and dynamic.
Derived from the word concatenate, used to display the contents of a file to standard output (usually the monitor). Operated by typing cat / name / file.
Usually used to display the string / characters on the screen, but can also be used to create a file using output redirection.
The commandments are just a few among the most complex commands contained in the Linux world. Similarly, explanations, arguments, and options are described just a few of the tens and even hundreds of arguments and options for each command. The easiest way to get an explanation of a command is to open the manual pages.
Okay .. so for now we walk in the linux terminal today. See you again in our beloved linux terminal.
