Ubuntu terminal

In your home folder create a folder named Test.
In the Test folder create a file called List with the printout of the contents of /usr/share in long format, sorted by last time modified

What code must I enter to do all this?

It would be easy for me to tell you...

But you'll feel better if you do this for yourself...

Have a look at the 'man' (manual) pages for the commands: mkdir, ls

If you don't know about 'man' pages, look them up --

Post if you get stuck.

First thing you need is to pick your class notes and read them. Then ask about more concrete issues after showing us what did you try.

Most people around will not respond to verbatim homework questions, and this one is obviously that. Besides that the forum rules explicitly forbid them. Also, remember that more than probably your teacher is also a member in this forum. It's the first obvious place to seek help about Linux on the net.
