You know how sometimes you spend hours trying to figure out what was the command that you used ‘that time’ when you were trying to do ‘that thing’. Well, I am tired of doing that, so, I decided I will keep a separate blog post will all the shell commands (whether simple ot complex) that I find useful.

1.
sudo apt-get install <package name>
this is the basic command used in Ubuntu for installing new packages.

2. So, you have some applications installed but you don’t know where it is? No problem just type:
which <application name>
and it will return the path to the appication. For example, type which cat, or which  ls.
