Installed debian-refcard. How do I read it?


This has to be the most annoying problem so far. I found the thread "grokking debian linux" which recommended debian-refcard. After a bit of messing with the sources.list I got it in, but I cant find out how to read it or where it is.

I searched my file system for "debian-refcard" and "refcard", I searched the web for "how to use debian-refcard", but to no avail.

AFAIK it's a .pdf file. Open it in a pdf viewer. That's the only refcard I've heard of, but there might be others.

Use your file manager to search for it, or use either locate or find in a terminal.

Thanks! That's where it is!

@sgosnell: I tried using the file manager to search, but for some reason it didn't find it. It was where "bill_from_tampa" said.

I did not know it could be installed with apt. I just downloaded it from the documentation section of the Debian website as a pdf file. It has been in my backup files ever since.
