complete noob question. "command not found" "command not found"
hi! I'm very new to Linux but I've been a wintel admin for a number of years. Frankly I'm intimidated by many of the questions even in the newbie forum. I will be grateful for your patience and help.
Most commands I enter in Linux are met with the "command not found" error. I understand I can run linux commands by learning where the executable files are and pointing to the proper directory every time but I'm hoping to save time by telling Linux to search in all the common directories for a command before telling me "command not found".
For example entering "ss" when I'm in my home directory should run "ss" rather than kicking back an error.
How can I accomplish this?
