That wanna-be dude.

Hai! I'm just an average wanna-be Linux user.

So I'ma make it a reality. ^^"

Anyway, I was looking around for a lightweight distro that has a nice look to it, and I found #!. I've played with Ubuntu in the past but only got annoyed when trying to install java and gave up. I was young then so hopefully I won't rage like before. I really like the idea of being able to reallly customize anything and everything I use. So if anyone has anything that'll help a newb, please do post it below! Also, I really do hate reading, so anything that quick and to the point will be very good.

Anyway, thanks for your time!!

Badj~

Re: That wanna-be dude.

Welcome to the Crunchbang family badjman.

Edit: Advice.  When posting questions, try to give them a title that reflects the subject and not just saying "Plz halp!!!11!"  The more information that you can provide about what you need help with, the better.

Bad:  HELP! Video doesn't work properly on my laptop!
Good: Waldorf x64. misshapen mouse cursor, Fooware MV1005 vid. chipset

Re: That wanna-be dude.

Welcome to the community!

If I could give one good, basic tip...it'd probably be to really make sure that you know what you're doing when using sudo. It's easy to tack that on to your commands to get things done, but I've broken my system before by getting a bit trigger happy with apt-get and screwing up critical system libraries. With that in mind, have fun and customize away!

Re: That wanna-be dude.

hey there badjman, welcome to #!

If you ask a question and someone says to do this in a terminal:

run_this -fg for-this

and you don't know what the command "run_this" is; --- check the manpage:

man run_this

man = manual

man man

see:

NAME
       man - an interface to the on-line reference manuals

SYNOPSIS
       man  [-C  file]  [-d] [-D] [--warnings[=warnings]] [-R encoding] [-L locale] [-m system[,...]] [-M path] [-S
       list] [-e extension] [-i|-I] [--regex|--wildcard] [--names-only] [-a] [-u] [--no-subpages]  [-P  pager]  [-r
       prompt]   [-7]   [-E   encoding]  [--no-hyphenation]  [--no-justification]  [-p  string]  [-t]  [-T[device]]
       [-H[browser]] [-X[dpi]] [-Z] [[section] page ...] ...
       man -k [apropos options] regexp ...
       man -K [-w|-W] [-S list] [-i|-I] [--regex] [section] term ...
       man -f [whatis options] page ...
       man -l [-C file] [-d] [-D] [--warnings[=warnings]] [-R encoding] [-L locale] [-P pager] [-r prompt] [-7] [-E
       encoding] [-p string] [-t] [-T[device]] [-H[browser]] [-X[dpi]] [-Z] file ...
       man -w|-W [-C file] [-d] [-D] page ...
       man -c [-C file] [-d] [-D] page ...
       man [-hV]

DESCRIPTION
       man is the system's manual pager. Each page argument given to man is normally the name of a program, utility
       or function.  The manual page associated with each of these arguments is then found and  displayed.  A  sec‐
       tion,  if  provided,  will  direct man to look only in that section of the manual.  The default action is to
       search in all of the available sections following a pre-defined order ("1 n l 8 3 2 3posix 3pm 3perl 5 4 9 6
       7"  by  default,  unless  overridden  by the SECTION directive in /etc/manpath.config), and to show only the
       first page found, even if page exists in several sections.

       The table below shows the section numbers of the manual followed by the types of pages they contain.

       1   Executable programs or shell commands
       2   System calls (functions provided by the kernel)
       3   Library calls (functions wi ... blah blah blah

I hate to break this to you, but there's going to be a little bit of reading involved here. Linux is like that. So my suggestion is that when you run into a problem, search the forums first for a solution -- chances are when you encounter a problem, someone has already had it before -- and if you don't find it, then post.
