Book cover

While a lot of effort has gone into creating attractive desktop managers such as KDE, Gnome and Xfce, the humble terminal remains the desktop of compulsion/choice for system administrators and ultra-geeks. It only takes a few simple tricks for regular users to be more productive and comfortable at the terminal. While there are several terminal programs, this article relies on Gnome Terminal. A working knowledge of shell linux commands such as ls, mkdir, cd, cp, mv, chmod, head, tail, echo and sudo and basic scripting is needed for this article.
