I assume it is just as frustrating for a Linux user to use Windows as vice versa.
I am a Windows user who has to use Linux occasionally. I am no stranger to the command line. But there is so much stuff I just can’t remember, because I only need to use it once in a blue moon.
So, here is a list of command line tasks I wish I could remember.
Mounting Windows Shares
sudo apt-get install cifs-utils sudo mount -t cifs //server.local/myshare /mnt/myshare -o user=billgates
Running a Live Ubuntu Distro
Installing packages can fail with an error “E: Unable to locate package”. Seems that the “universe” repository needs to be added:
sudo add-apt-repository universe
Install a .deb-File
sudo apt install ./name.deb
Create an Empty File and Make it Executable
touch file.sh chmod u+x file.sh
Don’t forget to start the file with “#!/bin/bash”.
Lists all block devices.
