Command Line Cheat Sheet Wallpaper – Learn Commands with a Background Pic
If you’re new to using the command line and trying to learn the Terminal, setting a cheat sheet of command syntax for commonly used tricks as your background picture can be a pretty helpful way to help remember commands.
The picture includes: file commands, ssh, installation and building from source (will require dev tools), network basics, system info, searching, process management commands, file permissions, compression, general command line shortcuts, and VIM, and much more. While this cheat sheet background was intended for Linux users, the majority of the commands work in Mac OS X too since Mac OS is based on a unix BSD core, so whether you’re on a Mac or PC doesn’t really matter quite as much as having access to the command line and it’s power.
Set the wallpaper to your Mac or Linux machine and you can see the desktop for quick reference for tons of commands that are often used.
This is a really handy way to learn neat tricks, particularly for those who are new to the command line or for those who just like to have a refresher handy for some methods and syntax for the myriad of commands available.
Thanks to Peter for sending this in, you can also check out more of our command line tips too.
Update: as a few commenters pointed out, the originally sourced image contained a joke that was not particularly funny, the picture has been changed. There is no command to ‘make your computer faster’ !
