Hi

your not going to learn linux in 10 days.
Saying that what do you expect to be able to do???
If it,s just getting around the terminal then thats not to bad and a good place to start.

this might help to start

Surf the web, do your school/work assignments, listen to music, watch videos, play games---all the things you usually do on a computer! When you get stuck, read the documentations or ask questions here.

Linux is just an operating system. If you know how to do the things you need to do, then you've "learned Linux" in my opinion.

Welcome to LQ!

The only real answer is to start using it. Actually, with linux you are constantly learning because kernel changes, commands change i.e new features/options and many others. I've used linux for many years and sometimes you learn something new.

Youtube has many tutorials on linux from the basics, to scripting and whatsoever.

You certainly can't completely learn any OS from scratch in 10 days.
You can certainly learn a lot of the basics though.
As above, use it and ask specific qns when you get stuck.

Hello,

There is no shortcut to learn linux in 10 days, even if you spent 24 hrs everyday, then even you cannot learn it.

There are people who have spent years in linux, and they're still thinking that they don't know it completely.

So you'd nowhere get a crash corse on 'Learn Linux in 10 days'.

It's a continuous process of learning, and if you really wanna learn, then get involved in it.

You can download TLDP guides, which I find the best for beginners as well as experts, among variety of study material available over Internet.

Just check here.

If you face any problem or have any doubt, then you can post your questions here.

Happy learning!

Hello,

The only thing you can learn moderately well in 10 days is "how to search the internet efficiently for all your queries first." In short, search and read, a LOT.
Once you learn that, half of your pain in learning Linux/UNIX/something technical else will be reduced.

There are no shortcuts for learning a 20 years old brilliant OS-kernel and a 40 years old legendary OS-philosophy.

Regards.

Hi seshu415

If you ask about something inparticular we might be able to point you in some direction.

Have you tried moving around the OS using terminal???

Have you tried to do simple tasks from terminal???

Just using the OS as a pc "meaning from the desktop" it will be the same as any other distro

Try to build a bash script google will give examples to practice.
Maybe modify your bash prompt, all good to start with.

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

From GNU/Linux-Newbie section of Slackware®-Links;
Quote:
Linux Newbie Administrator Guide <- 'A complete reference for new Linux users who wish to set up and administer their own Linux home computer, workstation and/or their home or small office network'
Linux Shortcuts and Commands <- 'practical selection of the commands we use most often. Press <Tab> to see the listing of all available command (on your PATH). On my small home system, it says there are 2595 executables on my PATH. Many of these "commands" can be accessed from your favourite GUI front-end (probably KDE or Gnome) by clicking on the right menu or button. They can all be run from the command line. Programs that require GUI have to be run from a terminal opened under a GUI'
Ultimate Linux Newbie Guide <- 'Ultimate Linux Newbie Guide has been helping individuals switch to the Linux Operating System. This guide can help both beginners and seasoned computer users alike learn all the important parts of choosing, using and installing Linux, a great free operating system for your computer and help you remove dependency on non-free, closed source software that is commonplace in Microsoft Windows or Mac OS'
Your First Loadable Kernel Module <- 'beginning kernel programmer, designed to lead the kernel newbie through the basics of writing and compiling their first kernel module'
The Linux Newbie <- 'A Linux Newbie Helping Others Come Into The Linux World'
A beginner's guide to Linux! <- 'Simple'
A Newbie’s Initiation To Linux <- 'PDF' + 'Fair'
Maybe 10 days can be used to introduce yourself to Gnu/Linux then decide where you fit and really dive into achieving your future goals. No instant learning pill, if we could give you a pill then it would need to be bitten off in small bites.

You can't learn Linux completely in 10 days, but you can definitely for some basic commands and also many more, check this.

Hi:

Welcome to Linux Questions!

In 10 days; Mate? Why the limit?

Congratulations on installing Fedora.
Get to know your distribution and use it everyday.
Learn about Yum and how to use it to update, install applications, run commands and etc.

Go to your local library and ask them for Linux books that you can learn from.
Watch videos and tutorials and learn to use the terminal.
See if your local College or University has a Linux Users Group that you could attend their next meeting.
