Console Tips

Recommended Posts

If you launch your terminal prompt in KDE with Konsole you can use these commands to see processes on your computer. The terminal prompt in Gnome is called Terminal I think. It's been awhile since I've used Gnome.

Type free at the prompt. That'll show how much system memory is available.

Type top at the prompt. That'll show you what applications, processes are currently running.

Type df -h at the prompt. That'll show how much hard drive space is available.

Hope that helps. :D
