The main challenge for each user of Ubuntu Linux and other distributions are the basic commands for the console. Sometimes simply that command line is the only way for example the configuration of drivers.

These are the basic commands for the package manager - APT which I prepared for the beginners:

Installing packages

sudo aptitude install
eg: sudo aptitude install firefox

Removing packages
sudo aptitude remove
eg: sudo aptitude remove firefox
or: sudo apt-get purge firefox

Search packages
sudo aptitude search
eg: sudo aptitude search firefox

Updating packages
sudo aptitude upgrade
eg: sudo aptitude upgrade firefox

In fact, using Linux commands is very quick and simple even for the beginners.
