Ubuntu Quantal Quetzal Installation Guides
Installing software on Ubuntu Linux is easy. Start by using the Software Center to find a program and install it. See this help page for more details.
This section will give details on application/software packages available with the basic Ubuntu install. The type of application that it is is listed under "Category". The location in the menu is listed under "Found In".
Using the Terminal
Here is a PDF file of commonly used, terminal commands, that is put out by http://fosswire.com/. These commands are useful under a number of circumstances, such as File and Process management, SSH, Searching, and etc. The file is under the Creative Commons license, meaning that it can be shared and modified, under certain conditions. Please read the license to understand how it applies. This list may be amplified here at a later date.
The above is a starting point for new users. To learn more about using the command line terminal, refer to the man pages. You can access the man pages via the terminal by typing "man <command>". For example, if you wanted to know about command options related to ls, or list, you would type in man ls and it would show you all the command options for ls. You can also go here Linux Man Pages to find all of the man commands.
