Console iin Gnome


i'm pretty to new linux, just put Fedora Core 2 on a partition with XP. I'm trying to use just the terminal thats default in gnome, but i'm having some problems. My friend is helping me out, he uses slackware only, but none of the commands he knows from Konsole work in terminal. I cant get it to change directories using say cd /home/thom/desktop/new folder and i was tryiing to set up my sound card by typing "alsaconf" but it said there was no such command. Am i doing something wrong? or should i just switch to KDE if i want my friends help?

Are you logged in as a root user. I think alsaconf can only be done by a root user by default

btw I think you're doing something wrong cause there's no difference in commands in the terminal in gnome or kde

"cd /home/thom/desktop/new folder" needs to be "cd /home/thom/desktop/new\ folder"

You can also try executing konsole, xterm, aterm, or rxvt which are all alternative terminals until the an answer is found.

To find alsaconf try one of these commands:
whereis alsaconf
or
find / -name alsaconf (as root)

Also to see all commands in your PATH that start with alsa type "alsa" in a terminal and press tab twice for all commands possible commands.
