Although I don't use the command much at all in Linux except to update and install drivers, someone had a great idea to build a wallpaper with a basic list of commands you might need someday on it.

Awesome!
I've been looking for something like this for a while now, and although there are a few "cheat sheets" out there, none are so simple and concise.
I'd really like something along the lines of the Beagle Bros. reference posters, but for Linux.

Hmm...

It's definitelly interesting, zaine smiley

I only think it's a bit too "simple", though. I'd like to see something like that, but with the shell-fu stuff!

That's what I was thinking when I said "Hmmm..."

This has kicked me square in the inspiration... As soon as I have some free time, I'm going to fire up OpenOffice and type up a few of my own, make them 11x17 pdf's or maybe 20x30 poster size.
Make one with just the simple basic stuff, one that has some advanced usages and a few non-standard commands...
Oh! The possibilities!

I'll post again when I get one or two whipped up... w00t!!

I usually keep a copy of this link on my menu:

http://www.oreillynet.com/linux/cmd/

687 commands in alphabetical order!

Might not be the best thing for a novice, since you'd need to have some idea of what to look for first. These might be a little better for them:

http://xinocat.com/refcard/refcard-en-lt.pdf (my fav!)

http://www.pixelbeat.org/cmdline.html

http://fosswire.com/2007/...inux-command-cheat-sheet/

And this to get a quick overview of what commands are available rather than how to use them:

http://www.steptux.com/Linuxcommands.pdf

And if any of these don't do it for you, here's a site that has a page linking to another 70 cheat sheets:

Linux-Unix cheat sheets - The ultimate collection

Feb 07, 2008 at 6:15 am - 82 Comments


http://www.scottklarr.com...-the-ultimate-collection/

This is a compilation of approx 70 cheat sheets for Linux users. There are a grip load of commands that Linux users have at hand which can seem very daunting to a novice. This collection will make Linux just a little less of a headache to learn.

Suggestion: Look through all of them and then choose the top 5-10 you think will help you the most. Print them out and then get creative. You can laminate and hang them on the wall around your desk, or create a small binder that you always keep in reach. Or you can use them all for inspiration to create your own master sheet that suites you best. If you do make your own, put it online and post the link in the comments - You'll get a lot of free traffic from here!

BTW: It shouldn't be too much of a hassle to do your own "quick-ref" background page. Fire up your preferred grahics app and have at it.

<edit - oh wait!! Edvard is already on it>

Happy hunting! Thmbsup
