Linux Tips

Useful Linux Commands

  • apropros - Useful for finding “appropriate” commands. i.e., apropros network will show useful commands related to networking.
  • man - RTM. Read The Manual. Enough said? i.e., man ls will let you read the manual for the command ls.
  • lshw - list hardware. Needs elevated privileges to properly probe all of the system's hardware. Also useful to pipe the output into a paginator for easy reading. i.e., sudo lshw | less will run the command with elevated privileges, then it pipes the output from that command into the text reader command less.
