    Hi all,

    When setting up my Pi 2 for retro gaming with RetroPie I suddenly recalled just how different the Linux command shell is from Windows / DOS, and how rusty I’d become using the command shell.

    As I proceeded I made various notes, which I’ve now written up as a couple of posts on my (non-commercial) blog. Hopefully they’ll be of use to others who aren’t Linux gurus.

    The first post introduces various tools for monitoring the Raspberry Pi’s hardware and running programmes, and covers basic usage of the Package Manager (APT) tool for installing software from the command line:

    The second post focuses solely on navigating the file system from the shell, along with a useful package which can be installed to help visualise the file tree structure (as it’s very easy to get lost without a GUI to help guide you):
