    Smile Beginners Bible - Basic Commands I've Used - hopefully will update as i progress

    so the story goes, i went in BT5 hardcore and used it as my main OS after 10 mins using the usb version on 2 laptops and i love it.
    but... as we all know, the first "hello" from pure windows to linux/BT is a bit of mission.

    with this i wrote down every command/fix/tweak i used to get basic functions working (music, flash in firefox, picture viewing...)

    when first diving into linux i found it confusing to understard exsactly what to write into the konsole so writing this i used the simple idea of;

    Just for curiosities sake, as BackTrack is designed as a pen-testing tool, why not install a linux system like Ubuntu or something more user friendly to accomplish your needs? In many ways, its more user friendly and is a good starting point if you are not yet used to Linux, as you'll find the beginners forum starts off much more basic, and works its war up.
    Just food for thought!

    It's always great to create your own terminal cheat sheet ;-)
    I've done it a lot of times...
    I agree 100% with raskolnikov, about the "normal" linux distro, instead of using Backtrack all the time..
    Take a look at Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian etc. They are kind of similar to the way Backtrack is build up..

    As a last note - here's a link with lot's of cheat sheets:

    Also, Backtrack is meant to be run primarily under the root user - something you shouldn't do for regular browsing or system use. Since Backtrack is based off Ubuntu, I'd recommend starting with Ubuntu and using Backtrack on the side. Anyway, for some cool command line hacks, you should head over to http://www.commandlinefu.com Good luck.

    I have found the apropos command to be very useful, I am always forgetting what commands are available for what, so I just use

    apropos [subject that command pertains to]

    and it gives me a list of commands that pertain to that subject, then I can man page any of those commands for more info.

    Just something that has helped me in the past! Cheers!
