Workshop 12: The Linux Command Line

Workshop 12 PDF

Workshop 12 teaches the very basics of using the Linux Command Line Interface. (CLI)

On a Linux computer the desktop only scratches the surface of the programs and functionality available. Linux users often access these additional features through a terminal window, using the Command Line Interface (CLI), a non-graphical user interface.

For many tasks, creative use of command-line commands is much faster than their GUI counterparts, especially in bulk tasks. We’ll only be able to take a look at the very basics today, but Linux geeks swear by the fact that each new trick they learn in the CLI allows them to save a little more time when using their computer.

This is an introductory workshop. Once you’re familiar with using your Pi on the desktop, you should be ready to attempt this workshop.
