Raspberry Pi – Getting Started – Linux Basics and Installing Software…
The first instalment in my ‘Getting started with Raspberry Pi’ beginners tutorial series… In this video I cover some basic Linux terminal commands, explain what the Terminal is and also show you how to download and install software… I demonstrate installing a 3D space invaders game and also OpenOffice (A Word, PowerPoint, Excel suite etc. That is free and very useful!)… Please check out my channel and other videos:
Code and useful information:
Directory is a FOLDER (in Windows Terminology)
ls – Lists all the files in a directory
cd /home/pi/MTB/ – Changes to the MTB directory (My personal one!) And THE PATH is different depending on where you want to go!
sudo – Gives you Root Privileges (Admin) for this command ONLY
Terminal = The Linux version of Command Prompt (Windows)
apt-cache search yoursearchtermhere – Searches the Repositories for what ever your search term is. You then use the first part of the answer in the apt-get command. 🙂
sudo apt-get install program – Installs whatever program you have told it to….
sudo apt-get remove program – You guessed it, it removes the program you have told it
sudo apt-get autoremove – Removes any packages you do not use anymore (CAREFUL)
Hope this has helped and make sure to watch out for my next installment!
