Course description

Like other types of OS, Linux has a graphical user interface (GUI) but unlike other OS, it operates independently of the GUI. This course gives you an understanding of the GUI within the user interface architecture and desktop environments like GNOME. You’ll also learn about using command lines, common commands, command history, shell variables, tab key tricks and other basics.
