Console (terminal) Commands ?
i'm newbie. this is my first usage of linux.
i'm using ubuntu 5.10 breezy badger. i don't know console commands, especially about tar.bz2, tar.gz, .deb, chmod 777 or 755, cd , cp etc. generally what are the console commands for source ?
for example i downloaded source, codecs, fonts and documents for mplayer , they are tar.bz2 and tar.gz files, what commands should i use to play mplayer , in terminal (console) ?
if you know how can i learn these commands basically, give me some advice.
bz2 files: bunzip2 [file]
tar files: tar xvf [file]
tar.gz or .tgz: tar zxvf [file]
.deb: dpkg -i [file] (local install)
Learn how to use the man pages and use them!
man bunzips, man tar, man dpkg etc.
Learn the basics and leave compiling sources alone for a while ;)
these commands. this is yet ? i'll want to learn more commands.
so, can anybody give me advices about learn completely compiling.
For the love of the terminal:
unpack the source files
The trouble usually begins with the configure stage. You need to watch the onscreen messages if there are dependencies you don't meet. Next, some programs require additional parameters during configure, other during make or during make install. Always read the directions included in the source.
Since you're on Ubuntu you also want to know how to compile deb packages or how to use checkinstall. Google is your friend.
