Kubuntu Noob Guide

by Jevin On 7:50 PM
So nothing about metal today. Just a list of commands that will get you started in on Kubuntu. If you are like me and love using the Terminal, then this list might be of interest to you.

The commands are very basic.. Nothing fancy here. Actually when I started using linux, I started this list because I couldn't remember any of these commands. Now I can remember. :D And I thought of helping the society. Enough of the talks now. Here ya go... Just drop a comment if you think I should add something. ;)

# Using Apache2
/etc/init.d/apache2 {start|stop|restart|reload|force-reload|start-htcacheclean|stop-htcacheclean}

# Quick restart Kubuntu

# Interesting config files

# Make Konqueror close tabs with middle mouse button
kwriteconfig --file konquerorrc --group "FMSettings" --key MouseMiddleClickClosesTab --type bool true

# Create or edit xxx in vi
vi xxx

# Start vi with cursor at end of file
vi + xxx

# vi starts in Command mode. Moving around in the file can be done there.
# To go to Insert mode in vi

# Back to Command mode in vi

# Save without exit

# Save and exit vi

# Exit vi without saving

# Delete line in vi

# Erase new lines in vi
:g/^$/ d

# Install xxx
sudo apt-get install xxx

# Remove xxx
sudo apt-get remove xxx

# Remove xxx and all its dependencies provided no other programs are using them
sudo apt-get autoremove xxx

# Search for xxx
apt-cache search xxx

# Show info for xxx
apt-cache show xxx

# Copy all files to /usr/local/lib/codecs/
sudo cp * /usr/local/lib/codecs/

# Delete file 'xxx yyy.zzz'
rm 'xxx yyy.zzz'

# Get list of files installed for xxx
dpkg -L xxx

# Rename/Move xxx to yyy
mv xxx yyy

# Make folder
mkdir xxx

# Get from /jevin/Downloads/xxx to /jevin/Downloads/
cd ..

# To fix blank startup screen, change window resolution values in /etc/usplash.conf to whatever your system is using.
# Then do
sudo update-initramfs -u
