5 command line tips for Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

RasPi Today commandline Banner final

This post from Russell Barnes on RasPi.Today shows us five handy command line tips for the Raspberry Pi:

The Raspberry Pi is designed to introduce its users to the more practical side of computing. As such it exposes users to the command line as soon as you turn it on. New users (and even some more experienced enthusiasts) can have a rather irrational fear of the command line. Hopefully the following tips and techniques will prove that it’s actually much friendlier than you might think…

All of the tips and techniques work on the command prompt (when you first start your Raspberry Pi) and in the LXTerminal window (once you’ve logged in to your desktop by typing startx ) and assume you’re running the officially supported operating system for Raspberry Pi, Raspbian.

If you’re scratching your head wondering what tasks you’d possibly want to carry out in the command line, check out the five things to do after setting up your Raspberry Pi to get some inspiration.

You CAN copy & paste

One of the most widely overlooked command line conveniences is the fact you can actually copy and paste snippets of code or URLs into the terminal. Simply highlight the text you wish to copy, right click and select Copy. Moving over to the terminal window, all you need to do is right click inside and select Paste.

The quicker alternative would be to use the convenient Copy and Paste shortcut keys, you just need to add SHIFT into the mix.
