I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but I was just wondering, are
there any websites or books that are Ubuntu specific, that are easy to
read and understand. I want to try using my Terminal more, and I think
I'm now ready to start learning.
Read man pages. The first UNIX like system I used was a VAX-VMS
system. I would open the xman application, and just browse the
commands. Also, if you see an instruction to use a command followed by
some cryptic codes, look at the man page for that command a learn what
the switches mean. If you are completely new to the terminal I guess
the first few commands to learn are:-
Once you can use them, you are well on the way to being able manage
your files from the terminal. As I said before, if you don't recognise
what those commands do, then type "man ls" at the command prompt to
read the man page.
