This manual explains the basics of Linux to users and prospective administrators. This includes logging in and out, use of the shell (command line), the online documentation, and the most important commands. In addition, we explain the vi and Emacs text editors and the fundamentals of the Unix “toolchest“ philosophy which allows users to assemble complicated routines out of simple building blocks. An introduction to the Linux directory structure, followed by an overview of file archiving and compression tools, rounds off the topic.
This manual is aimed towards readers with basic knowledge of using computers. Its content or comparable knowledge are a prerequisite for the successful study of further manuals and for certification with the Linux Professional Institute (LPI)
