  • Any references for learning Linux? | Beginners

    Hi guys, Wonder where are the right sources to learn Linux?
    Usually I use ubuntu live cd for recovering files during windows booting error, but after reading some tutorials in TI-forums which much more about setting up seedbox, I am attracted in and then found myself really a whole blank about linux.

    I have basic skill about DOS. but not Linux. So, hopefully may find some resources to learn.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you are serious about learning Linux and want to learn the basics, I recommend the free Linux class that is offered by EDX currently.

    You can enroll free of charge by auditing the course here: https://www.edx.org/course/linuxfoun...roduction-5386

      I had absolutely no knowledge about Linux until I installed Ubuntu Server and started to mess. That's the best way I would say for someone who will do it as a hobby. Learn what you need to know, not what you will never use

        I agree, install it and mess it up then reinstall again and repeat. Plenty of ubuntu guides out there.

          LOL yeah that was the first time I learned DOS/windows by messing my first new PC when still at high school.
          I have been using ubuntu. What I am actually attracted is understanding command line. in ubuntu I am using, it rather has GUI. but in seedbox tutorials those are using command line, like in DOS mode. That is exactly what I am interesting to learn rather than just an ordinary GUI user.

            Use ubuntu server then. It's all command line based. Then just google what you want to installed. It is pretty easy to figure out with the help of guidesz

              It's an online course that is free of charge (normally $2,400). Just select the "Audit This Course" option, and you will be able to view the course at your own pace. It will walk you through the basics and even get into more advanced things such as bash shell scripting. It's a great place to start, while it's still free.

                For me the best way to learn was just to dive in. So decide what I want to do and then with the help of google search figure out how to do it. There are of course a lot of online courses and tutorials, so if that works better for you, then search for those.

                Also suggest getting something like Oracle VM which is free software that allows you to create virtual servers on your PC. What is great is you can use these for learning and testing, and even if you completely screw up the system, it doesn't matter.

                You can get Oracle VM at https://www.virtualbox.org/

                  you might want to discover linux from a project prespective :
                  one day you'll wake up saying : i'd like to do, let's say, a remote backup on my server, and maybe setup an owncloud, and you'll search, look a tutorials, and do, read what the command "man $programmname$" says when you don't know about a command...
                  just mess wih it !

                    If you already have the Desktop version installed, just install SSH and use that instead if possible. Just make sure you back everything up before you start messing with it.

                    +1 for the man pages. They will tell you mostly everything about a command and how to use it.

                      well, that is exactly what I need to learn! that is installing SSH!
                      Man,. I have poor knowledge of linux. I know more about windows, but the world now, especially servers are mostly using linux, so I must cache up with up to date knowledge LOL

                        Open a terminal window and type

                        sudo apt-get install openssh -server

                        That's it. Then connect to it via the default port no 22 :)

                        Google search how to configure it but that'll get you going

                          Just take small steps. Decide that today I want to install a linux server and then do it, then decide you want to install XYZ application and figure that out. In between then you will have run into some problems and Google will be your friend. After a few months you will at the very least have a working knowledge of linux and be able to hold your own :)
