See binary files trough terminal ubuntu


Hello there, I used gentoo for a while and now I am using ubuntu
on gentoo I could see the biary files nicely with xterm, but I can't do that with ubuntu now
Why is that?

What do you mean by "seeing binary files?" You should be able to execute the normal commands. If not, you might check your PATH variable with the command:

echo $PATH

What i mean by seeing is that with gentoo I could see the code somehow, with ubuntu I only get things like @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@eiqueiq@@@@@@@@@@@@q
With gpg files too, with gentoo I used to get a nice coded matrix, with ubuntu I only get thing like the above
Thanks

I don't know what you were doing with Gentoo, but if you want to look at the contents of binary files you would usually use a tool something like od or hexdump. There are others.
