www.linux.org has just about anything like that. But www.linuxnewbie.org has quite a bit as well, those are 2 very helpful sites, for any level.

I got a similar question...
When in /usr/bin/mpegs/music/

And I want to go to /usr/bin/mpegs/music/mp3

How would I cd there without using cd /usr/bin/mpegs/music/mp3

I have tried ~/mp3 but that doesn't work. Thanks.

If that is confusing I mean if I am in /usr how do I cd to /usr/bin with typing the whole directory out?

Thanks

OK, to move from:
/usr/bin/mpegs/music/ to
/usr/bin/mpegs/music/mp3

you'd only need to type cd mp3.

There is a thread around on relative paths and how to figure them out. Have a search.

There is now a LinuxQuestions.org Glossary.

If you have Linux installed, you have all the commands in the man pages also.

But hopefully we get some contributions to help us with the LQ Glossary.. so anyone wanting to help or add some terms to it, feel free to do so.

erm, why on earth are you storing your mp3's underneath /usr/bin? the /usr/bin/ directory (and subdirectories thereof) are intended for additional programs installed on the system, and certainly not media Although it won't actaully affect the system, it is a poor practise. imho you want to think about laying out your system better.

acid_kewpie is correct. "/usr" is not "user". "/home" is where all good users live !

It would be better to store your MP3s in a directory under /home/<youruserid> such as "/home/<youruserid>/MP3". You would of course replace "<youruserid>" with your actual, non-root user name.

if there's a command you want to know about, but don't know the exact command, use apropos. It does a search through the man pages for whatever you tell it to search for.

To use it type apropos <command>
