If you wanna go to child folder just write cd <folder nama>, and cd .. to go to parent folder

rizky@rizky-laptop:~$ cd demo
rizky@rizky-laptop:~/demo$ cd ..

run something as super user: sudo <sth>

For example, I’ll run gedit editor. After write that code, you’ll be asked your admin password. Don’t worry if you can’t see the character you type. Just type it and enter.

rizky@rizky-laptop:~$ sudo gedit
[sudo] password for rizky:

View “help menu” of command/View command’s arguments:

<command> –help

for example, I want to look at sudo additional arguments, then I’ll type:

rizky@rizky-laptop:~$ sudo --help
sudo:   please use single character options
usage:  sudo -h | -K | -k | -L | -l | -V | -v
usage:  sudo [-bEHPS] [-p prompt] [-u username|#uid] [VAR=value]
             {-i | -s | <command>}
usage:  sudo -e [-S] [-p prompt] [-u username|#uid] file ...

Use tar archiver: tar <options> <file>

First fact: tar compressor is a default installed program there. Second fact: actually you can extract or compress the files on desktop/interface. Third fact: you can see the syntax on tar help: tar –help

Create/compress: -cf for creating file.tar, -czf for creating file.tar.gz

rizky@rizky-laptop:~$ tar -cf test.tar
rizky@rizky-laptop:~$ tar -czf test.tar.gz

Extract: -xf for extracting file.tar, -xzf for extracting file.tar.gz

rizky@rizky-laptop:~$ tar -xf test.tar
rizky@rizky-laptop:~$ tar -xzf test.tar.gz

Clear view: clear

Actually this command doesn’t really clear your terminal’s view. It’s just make the terminal go down until the previous line unseen. If you scroll up your terminal you’ll see the previous line after some empty space.

rizky@rizky-laptop:~$ clear
