Ubuntu(Part-5)

There are some virtual consoles in Ubuntu,a total of 6 in all which you can access at any time.These consoles can be accessed by pressing ctrl+Alt+f1,f2,f3,f4,f5,f6 depending upon which console you want.These let you proceed on ur work in a command line interface and if any time you want to return back to graphical press ctrl+Alt+f7.Now I want to tell you some things about 'Nautilus'.It's a traditional file browsing system specially designed for Ubuntu.When you are browsing any folder,just press ctrl+T,you will see a new tab opened like that of a web browser.Not only that you can even add bookmarks and copy and move the files between the tabbed windows :).One more important thing,you know with unix or Linux there is a problem if you give spaces in between names like rm dileep kumar It gives error telling you that neither dileep nor kumar files are present and they cannot be removed even though there is a file by name dileep kumar.There are two ways in which you can overcome this
1.rm "dileep kumar" (using double quotes)
2.rm dileep\ kumar (Typing a backslash before every space)
