Linux video tutorials show you how to use Linux - step-by-step! They are an excellent, fast and easy way to learn Linux.
Getting Linux Running - So You Can Learn How to Use Linux!
First, you need to get Linux and start the Linux OS (operating system) on your computer system. This will give you access to the Linux desktop, where you can: run Linux software programs and open a terminal emulation window.
Linux Tips: To get Linux running on a system, you can: boot your system with a Linux live cd (very fast and easy), use a free Linux player program to run Linux in Windows (also fast and relatively easy), install Linux on a Windows system (more complicated and time consuming) or install Linux on a new system (a good way to go!).
Once you are “at” the Linux desktop, open a terminal emulation window so you can go to the Linux command line prompt, where you will run Linux commands.
Linux Tips: To open a Linux terminal (terminal emulation window) from the Linux desktop, to run Linux commands: click on the “Terminal” icon (which looks like a computer screen) - or right-click on the desktop and select “Linux Terminal” or “Linux Console” (or similar) - or look through the menus and select “Linux Terminal” or “Linux Console” (or similar).
Running Linux Video Tutorials - Online in Linux
To watch a Linux video tutorial, just run your Linux browser and log in and you will see the list of Linux video tutorials.
Just click on the name of the video tutorial, such as: “How to Run Linux in Windows to Learn Linux”, or “Using a Linux Live CD / DVD”, or “How to Use Linux Commands - The ls Command” - and the video tutorial runs in the browser (in Windows).
So, at this point, you have a Linux video tutorial playing in your browser and you also have a terminal emulation window open so you can run Linux commands.
Using Linux Video Tutorials to Learn Linux and Get Real Practical Experience Yourself!
Now, imagine using Linux video tutorials to get fast, easy Linux training.
Not only do you get to see the Linux videos and hear how to use Linux, but you also get to “follow along” as the videos are playing, and use a Linux desktop to run Linux software programs, but most importantly - you can watch and try Linux commands yourself!
Just start a Linux video, such as “How to Use Linux Commands - The ls Command” and watch a bit of how to run the command - step-by-step. Then click on the pause button.
Hold down the Alt key (which is at the left of the spacebar on your keyboard) and press the Tab key to go to the Linux terminal emulation window (so you can get to the Linux command line prompt to run Linux commands).
Now try the Linux command you have just watched - and then maybe experiment a bit!
Then hold down Alt and press the Tab key again and go to the Linux video window. Watch a bit more of the Linux video and learn some more options of the command.
Then press Alt+Tab again to go to the Linux command line prompt in the Linux terminal (a.k.a. Linux console) and try the new Linux command options. And so on.
You will find this an excellent way to get practical, easy Linux training!
