Tree command?


Hi Guys what is the equivalent of the DOS tree command
Quote:
tree | more
in lunix I want to explore directories and files on my Centos 5 distro but cant find which command to list all directory's on the system I've downloaded the Centos 4 - 5 manuals but cant see it.

I can use
Quote:
ls -all
in the current directory and can change directory but cant see what directories I have to change to

cheers
Andy

its tree too.
you can also explore your file systems using find command.
man find or info find on your system to find out more

Try ls -R | more to see all subdirectories & files within those directories. If you just want to see what subdirectories there are do ls.

Lol.. I never thought to try that. However I'm logged in as root at the command line and typing

just gives me 3 files anacanda-ks.cfg
install.log
install.log.sys

Is there a way of listing the whole directory structure across a drive

Thanks Guys. Nexus I see a link to webmin in your post I'm downloading it now. Is it easy to install to my centos 5 server?

Cheers

It should be straight forward. You might want to check if it's already in you repo list and install it from there to avoid any potential dependency issues.

if you want to use tree, you can download and install. However, if you can't download and install, you can use find. Eg of the simplest syntax of find you can get.
Code:
# find / -print
or
# find / -ls
like i said before, check the man page of find (or ls) for more info

It depends on your desktop environment (KDE, Gnome, XFCE, fluxbox etc.). Google will have answers for each one, so do a quick search and see

In KDE (which is what I have to hand) you'd open the Control Centre via the K-menu > Settings, then go to Regional and Accessibility, then go to Keyboard Layout, and select the appropriate keyboard layout there. I imagine it's not that different in Gnome.

You can also change it for your ttys using the loadkeys command, although I've never used it, since I always select a UK keyboard layout during installation
