Terminal Commands

I will be adding useful commands to copy and paste in the terminal on this page. Only use them after reading what they do.

Stay logged into the terminal as root(super user) this means you wont have to put sudo before commands that require it and when you open software from the terminal you will be running it as root( be careful deleting or changing any files)

sudo su

Update repository's (software databases) and upgrade system (update your software)

sudo apt-get update && apt get upgrade

Open file manager as root 

sudo thunar

Clean your system

sudo apt-get clean && apt-get autoclean && apt-get autoremove

Remove orphaned packages

apt-get purge `deborphan`
