  1. So! You have received your Raspberry Pi or other Linux based computer and are now wondering what to do with it… Well don’t fret. I was thinking the same thing when I got mine. After I had visited the Raspberry Pi website and installed the Debian “Wheezy†Operating System (OS) onto my Class 10 8Gb SD card I was ready to go… Or was I??? Being a hardened Windows user myself, I was a little daunted when faced with command lines. Here are some useful commands that have really helped me. To Update your Debian “Wheezy†or other Linux OS software… sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade Start the graphical Interface (Linux version of Windows)… startx Find the IP (internet protocol) address of your Pi… Next to the wlan0 entry you will see inet addr. This is the IP address of your Pi… sudo ifconfig Make a file executable (means you can run it in a terminal window)… sudo chmod 755 /home/pi/path_to_file/file.sh Change the current directory… cd /home/pi/name_of_directory/ Open a file in a text editor… nano /name_of_folder/name_of_file.txt Check how much free space you have… Check how much free space you have… List directories & files recursively to a .txt file… ls -1tr -l -R --group-directories-first | grep -v files > filedate.txt See how long your Pi has been on for… uptime Search for text in files (recursively)… grep -ril "TEXT TO FIND" /path/to/search List all installed programs to a text file… dpkg --get-selections > installed_progs_04-05-2013.txt List all directories recursively to a file… ls -l -R | grep ^d > filedate.txt
