list of commands

I just accidentally closed the very handy Clipboard Manager. How do I start it up again?
Obviously I'm very new to Crunchbang. To avoid having to post billions of similar questions: where can I find a list of frequently used commands?

Thanks for helping me out!

Re: list of commands

If you look in autostart, you can see the commands used to start various applications when you login (~/.config/openbox/autostart; or look in Menu->Settings->Openbox). In this case it is clipit.

More generally, to get a list of possibles to try, you can do
1)

apropos something

In this case

[damo@cb1-laptop ~]$ apropos clipboard
clipit (1)           - Lightweight GTK+ Clipboard Manager
xclipboard (1)       - X clipboard client

2)
Alt-F3 brings up the alt menu, where starting to type a command name will show a list of possibles. Highlight the one you want and press Enter
3)
Lots of ways....;)


For a list of frequently used Linux commands, then use a search engine;
By all means post your questions here, but please first do a web search, or a forum search (icon top right of page) first, because your question has almost certainly been asked before smile

Re: list of commands

If you want to learn about the command line, I can recommend Linux in a Nutshell

It can be read online for free smile
