Welcome to Siberia. I t
My name's Greg Stewart. I'm your subject matter expert for Lennox Plus.
So we're module to the installation configuration module, and part three of this module is we're going to be talking about actually using the living system.
So in the introduction, whenever a brief overview of the operating system and some of what the look is and a little bit of have a feel is we're gonna focus on actually navigating the desktop environment, navigating the file system a little bit
basic commands on the command line, uh, the command line interface
and some of the other stuff that you might find Cem, Cem menus, navigational items. We're gonna give you a good overview of what it's like to use this system. Many of you out there if you use Lennox before, this will be a basic brush up for you. In fact, if you're well versed with Lennox and you're here to take this,
um, you know, as a best kind of just a touch up to it,
prepare for the exam. I would say you probably could just go ahead and skip over this part altogether. However, if you're new to Lennox and you won't understand how to use Olynyk system. It's slightly different from Windows. There's some slightly different haven't navigational items menu ends that you need to be aware of.
And this this part will. If you follow along with your own desktop,
you'll see how how it is works out, functions
what to click, what does once and common applications built in tow one, too,
and just look and feel the desktop. So without further ado, let's go ahead and jump right in.
We've got my cyber Aylin Xbm here that we created in the last part of installing Lennox for two. So let's jump in here. Let's go ahead and power it on.
So empower homey virtual machine PM was booting it up for me.
You get if you remember when you If you're using the more work station when you go ahead and boot your Lennox PM up, it doesn't automatically go into full screen mode.
This could be in a consul type window. It's much smaller and
you can see here is going through its post.
Make sure my volume is up.
Shouldn't get too full.
Okay. So here it is I'm at the desktop with log in prompt again. There's no control of the lease is basically what you're gonna see very similar to ah, Mac osx long and screen.
I don't know my an inch, my password
highly complex password password
and it's gonna log me in
now you might be thinking, that's just lightly slow. And that's simply because I'm running off low amount of ram and below the hard disk. And this is basically sharing my laptops. Physical resource is as well, so don't be alarmed if my system is just slightly slower than yours
or if you haven't done it yet and you just kind of watching the videos. Lynn Nix is not
this slow again. It just depends on your physical resource is. So don't be alarmed. It's fine. We, uh, you know, depending on how you configure your own system, it will be as fast as you want to be, depending on the resource you have available. So
it's not natively this slow,
and we just you know, we just live in a world these days where everything's really snappy.
Resource physical resource is have become fairly affordable to the point where we can have 16 gigs of RAM and a laptop, 32 gigs in the desktop, et cetera. And we're just kind of used to faster SST drives these days. So
if it's not functioning super quick, it's not because it's ah Lenox related issues just because my laptops a little bit slower and I've got my virtual machine powered up animosities and the resource is the actual laptop.
here we are the desktop.
You'll notice that on the left hand side space like your system, doc, kind of like you would see in a Mac it across the bottom or in the Mac you can also have on the left hand side. Or this would be like your taskbar windows at the bottom and what it's done here. Just taking some common native
one to Lennox APS and pinned him here for you. The 1st 1 This is the most important app.
When I'm using my gun to box, I'm using this one pretty much consistently throughout the experience.
This is like my searchlight app on Mac. We talked about that a little bit in one of the earlier parts and earlier modules,
but if I just click on this.
It's giving me a search box. It put some of the most common app center that air requested. Right here. You'll see terminal. It's in the number one slot because I'm gonna be using terminal a lot in this course to do some some command less is at your command line interface. You want to use this to
configure items to configure file systems. Make directories navigating file system.
If you want to do it from a command line interface is the application could use the help. One is
semi helpful. You're gonna find more help, actually, from the command line, their face on the man pages like the manual pages.
Just about any command out there is There's a man page for, which means you enter the command and we'll talk about this a little bit more in depth at a later model. A late model, a different part.
But basically, man pages give you a rundown of what the command is when it does what you know. Different functions. The difference switches that will change. The commander do specific things,
so the help button is cool. It's good. It's helpful for some things. When does is annoying me right now.
All right, let's just click this and get it out of the way, all right? And then the Thunderbird male client
is gonna be like your outlook mail, except it's the lengths mail some thunder male clients very, very similar to the one on a Mac OSX. But you see your mail client there, get your videos. This is like a built in YouTube video glare.
Your text editor is gonna be just basically it's just like no pad on Windows machine. Obviously the calculator rhythm box we touched on earlier, Little bit There's, like, clinics or a bun two's version of iTunes. So I mean, if you want to go completely
if you want to be all in with Lennox, um, kind of silly to say that I'm not gonna
I'm getting ready to compare to iTunes or being all Lennox in iTunes. But iTunes and Apple, all their stuff, is held off. The Lexx take colonel as well. So hard to use that example. But I guess if you wanted to get away from any Windows media stuff you want strictly all Lennox,
then you could use the rhythm Bach's music player to manage your music, and they have a store as well.
So these are some almost commonly called up applications on your legs machine. There, there, there, natively.
I didn't put any of these here, but most of them they will get built out over time. Or you certain things will pop up here
so I don't need to search for Terminal. It's there. But let's say I want to.
This is actually your boxing machines connected. The Internet will actually do some Internet search. The right God search hammers long.
It's gonna show me the Amazon app, which will take me out.
Um, it's also going to see some others of smother suggestions. Here.
A man was on prime question. Uh, just looks like this reference is calm.
Looks like there's some shows, amazing Amazons and music. And Rusher
um shows you some weather stuff here. The Weather Channel in Amazon, wherever that is, it was on cheap. Why
eso? It's That's one thing. If I see if I take, uh,
things what happened?
Phoenix. You know we're sitting here. It's almost Super Bowl Sunday, um, here in 2015 coming up on February 1st Super Bowls of Phoenix this year I want to know what the weather is. Bangs right there. I don't have to go to a specific weather app.
I want to go to the Weather Channel app. It's there. I just want to see what the weather is in Phoenix today. There it is. What it's gonna be tomorrow,
and some other stuff. Whatever. I mean, it's just basically like Google and some Searchlight all in one. It's a great tool. Use it often
easy to navigate your system. I suggest you get used to using this tool here. It's this search. Okay,
so that's Ah, that's 11 Cool tool J.
Then appear you're going to see you, have you to go full screen and you can go close it. So we're gonna close that back to the desktop.
The 2nd 1 Obviously, it's second there because it's, you know, it's really the first, most usable app. This is your final system for May
graphical interview user interface.
Oh, this is gonna be much different in your command line, but this is just basically playing pictures to the command line.
We'll hear some of your your file is part of your file systems. Your directories. If I go thio
here's my file system. Been in command line would be slashed, been or slash boots last year on slash Betsy slash homeowners your route.
There's a bunch of, you know, click on the file
it, open it. See, these are my floppy drives that are mounted.
Um, see the wrong click on that other. See Iran? There's nothing mounted. You know, these are all different files. Just all different files directories air than my fastest. You can't necessarily open the root file for Mei Hui perspective. It got to be along his route for that.
Okay, I'm here. This this allows me to
sorry for the Twitter update. Their This allows me to also look at some other things. Like my downloads. My music, uh, again, you know, it's gonna be where rhythm box drops its files, pictures, videos.
the items that are only desktop currently have don't have any desktop, like calls like,
personally hate dust off my con to try to keep my desktop pretty clean.
You go back to home. Brings me to the home page. I mean, this is a pretty, uh, pretty simple stuff. Baseline But this is what it looks like slightly different than Windows, just just slightly. But I find it over time that
the more you play with Lennox, the more you get your hands on. You become very quickly acclimated to it. It's a lot easier to learn and manage
and navigate in the Windows File system. Personally, I just that's that's what I think. I think you'll find it to be the same
unless you just don't die hard Windows Guy, which in that case, not quite sure why you're taking this course. But
we welcome you anyways. So let's go to the next one. Obviously inspire Fox.
It's just your Web browser. It's Lennox base. It's free. It's open source. It's Firefox. Think we'll know what it is created by the Mozilla Foundation?
Oh, you know, it's got a little bun to logo. They're marking stuff. Google search engine. If you search here, it's a Google.
Um, we We don't need to do this, though. I mean, so if we go on right click on it, we could just quit
any of these. If you right click on it, you could unlock it from the launcher, and it will actually disappear from the launcher.
Okay, then to call it up, you're gonna have to go to your search and type in Firefox.
Even those we've already opened it. It's there in the recently used applications. Okay,
well, get with that.
What you're seeing here is we talked about a little bit. This is Liberty Office.
This is your word type thing. Type programs is your excel type of program. Here. You're looking at your power point kind of our, You know, your PowerPoint slides, that kind of deal. This is all free and open. Source comes built into the operating system.
Can you imagine what it would be like if Microsoft shipped Windows seven or when there's a etcetera for Windows 10 coming up? What? I mean, what would it be like if it's shipped with Microsoft office in 2015? Pro, I mean, would be incredible.
How much money would that save you if your student you can get pretty cheap
If you're not a student? You Brian, you're spinning over $300 especially if you're using a Mac or spending over $300. So
this is really nice. And like I said, an earlier one. When you're using this new type of file and liberal office or
Lieber office writer and you send a email it to me and I'm on my Windows machine, I could open it automatically. Converts to award dog
So piece of cake, easier use. Not really a big excuse. It used to be in the past from this conversion didn't take place that you'd say, Well,
I only use PCs. I don't have a you know, Lance converter. You'd have to You have to find a file that would you could download and and used to convert these Lennox these Labor Office files to award dot doc file.
It's not like that anymore.
It's pretty intuitive system,
and it's it's created so that it's simple and convert it really don't have any excuse to go out and have to buy the software when it comes built in. So if you're looking to go all in on Lennox is just makes it a lot easier, right? Saves you a lot of money in the process.
So again, I'm not gonna go through all three of them, But basically, this is your spreadsheet these years. Your slides Okay.
No, this is your bun to software center. Let's go there. This is a recording one, too.
So in a bunch of software system that's going to show you all the software kind of like your control panel at a remove programs. That kind of deal on Windows, except this is a lot is a lot prettier. It's got a lot of different buttons, and low goes long or graphics involved. It's also got
built. This is like also your APP store
as well, so you can actually go out and find ABS or purchase abscess. And I understand that Lennox is free and open. Source. Me. We want that. The community wants that to remain free. No, the source. But there are also some developers out there that develops in great APS
that that you have to purchase Francis my kids. They're they're all in on this Minecraft thing. So
you hear you can purchase a version of Minecraft. It looks like my craft. Maybe it's a knock off, but there's things out there that you can purchase
some great applications that you can purchase. Two that are that are actually they're not free.
But ah, very helpful. So this is kind of, ah,
kind of a lot of different things you can do on here. Okay, so
you this is all software. If I go to installed
installed tabs and showing all the software, it's actually installed on my system.
This is great because it gives me in a you know, a bird's eye view of everything. So if I want to know what's installed, you know, I go to office, it shows me these are all things that are installed
for my office office tools, office automation, Lee Braff's math office impress Who will drive Scope for Unity
Office calculator. Right? These are all. I mean, this is like your office. Microsoft Suite
sounded video, Whatever got installed on there.
Some options here is well that you can see that we talked about. There's Rhythm Box and some other things Cheese, Webcam, booth, these air like a photo booth and Mac. There's different themes, which is nice. The thing about bun to this nice this highly configurable you can put different theme on if you want.
There's just a lot of really cool stuff you could do here, shows you all the software is installed and you got your history tab. This is going to show you what you've done within your computer. You know, in the recent history where you've installed software wise. Okay,
Progress. If you're installing, something's gonna be your progress. It's obviously empty. Is currently I'm not installing anything. So you're not gonna see anything in this progress tab
cases moving on? They pinned Amazon on here, and, you know, they've been pushing Amazon a lot. Obviously, most of you out there, you know what Amazon is. This takes you right to Amazon within your desktop.
You didn't have to go out to fire Fox or chrome or anything to launch. It just launches from here.
Simple. I'm gonna quit that. I'm actually gonna I'm gonna remove this from the launcher because for the purpose of this class don't really need and involved there.
And I'm gonna quit the software center as well.
I'm kind of a neat freak when it comes to that stuff. I don't like a lot of running APS in the background, but some say doesn't matter. Some say it's come a long way where you don't have to be killing abs. I just don't like not using it. I like to close down.
There's a software update. Er, this is basically like your W son. Street windows updates. It's gonna pull down any settings or updates that air better out there.
Can I, uh I'm not gonna install this right now, because, you see, you know, it's got to 27. Meg's will be downloaded. It might take a little while and the essence of time for this course. You guys want to sit there and watch paint dry? I'm not gonna do it, but there's details. Tab here.
It shows you a bunch of different updates. They're going to be installed. If I were to do this right now,
uh and you know, it gives you a good idea of what
it doesn't look like. It's a whole lot of really serious stuff.
And that gives you technical description down here. You know, you click on it, tells you what it is. Fire Fox needs to be updated constantly. Being updated,
embedded. New C library. This might be a little warm for you,
So I'm just gonna say, remind me later.
Come on, lock off launchers. Well, don't my floppy
then system settings is important to get. This is, like almost exactly what you see in system preferences in the Mac. Right
you're looking here is Josie the appearance, which you can change the desktop background, etcetera. Security and privacy, your mouth settings.
Bluetooth. You've got a Bluetooth wire, Bluetooth mouse or keyboard that's really gonna configure it
much different things. Time and date,
online counts, user accounts accepted. This is we're gonna go. This is what you want to do to do any configuration that you need for your system from a again, from me
graphical user interface
perspective. Okay, so many closed out,
I'm gonna close. My file system got here. I was Well,
so now we've seen ah, little bit of how to use the system from the from the taskbar, right? Best tough toolbar. Whatever you wanna call it. Okay. If you actually obviously your trash can get in touch with half of That's pretty straightforward.
So if you right click on your background gives you some options for creating new folder,
create a new document,
And this document is actually gonna be opened in text. Editor. This is not your library offices text editor. Okay?
Again. When you're working on it, it's gonna be opened here in your tool bar.
I'm going to quit that. Okay,
well, it's kind of you. I can go organize my desktop, my name and keep the blind. Changed my desktop background.
Pick a color if I want a different picture. Okay,
That's nice. Looks nice back. Let me blow. The substance will be easier to see.
It's Luke Prettier. There's a great shots, right?
I still I'm drawn to this color man. Can't get away from it.
Okay, what else can I do? So that's pretty much it, right? You can do these things. So then what I want to do is I'm gonna go ahead and launch a terminal
I like. I like to actually pin this. Someone's gonna drag it over dependent.
I'm gonna pennant clock into my my bar launchpad.
I'm gonna open it up.
All right, so we're looking at the command line interface is the terminal. Okay? So you can see it's dropped me into my working directory. So when I say working directory, that is the actual director you didn't work in
at times you'll you'll see as we get a little bit further down in the course, you're going to see a bunch of different commands that they're gonna take us into different directories, create. We're gonna be creating directories, creating files, editing files.
And sometimes you can get so deep into Lennox that you don't really remember where you are and you to find out. So if you just type the command PWD, it will tell you
the Commander stands for print working directory. So that tells you where you are. What directory?
Here, you can see that I'm in slash home and cyber ery admin is the guy that's using it right now. Another cool, a short little um, command
all one word. No spaces.
This does. He whose longed in Who's who I am right now tells me who's logged in what account this is and who's making the commands. This is me
cases. Right now it's library admin. Also, another good one. Make sure that you're on your own account.
If you're a tech guy, sometimes you're out there shadowing accounts. Maybe didn't log off the shadows session. You want to make sure to you before you start making crazy changes.
Another cool, uh, tool is
you can go to list l s.
This is gonna list everything under my under my home directory was my desktop. When I go to my desktop now we should see these two folders that I created our folder and document. I created rights. Let's CD, which is change directory. We talked about this a little bit in the preview to the section
Where did Ah little bit of commands on the wave board,
but CD is change directory command so much like seedy space space. And then I'm gonna type
capital D now important thing to know, to note about Lennox, that is very case sensitive, unlike Windows.
If it was, if I type the capital D and if I just type tab
a couple times, it's gonna bring up all the options I have that start with a capital D.
You'll notice that none of them start with lower case except for the examples dot desktop. Forget about that.
Every other directory there that you see and blues listed in the directory.
They're all start with capital letters. So if I if I want to go to desktop. I see the desk. I can take Tab. That's the auto total complete.
If I had tab, I don't have to type the whole thing out. Just auto completes. The pilot knows that's their directory, and it's there.
So I do that I hit enter draws me into my desktop.
Now, in my desktop directory.
I know. I know that again. I could do PWD tells me I'm at home
Cyberia. Admin is my user name and desktop.
Okay. Tells me a print print. My working directory. That's it. So if I do it l s for list. It's gonna list the contents of that directory. Untitled document and untitled folder.
let's click on it. We've got one more time.
You'll notice that it doesn't just automatically change this output right here to test for even less. Now what it's called
you got to go ahead and do another l s to see the change. So if I hit the up Barrow, the up here, I was gonna keep a history of all my commands.
If you've done this, if you know Windows and you've had experience with that, we've experienced Lennox. You know that The up command I'm sorry about the upcoming with the up arrow gives you all your recent commands. But I keep getting up.
She's just gonna scroll through all the recent commands idea. But I want to go to the L S command. I'm gonna hit enter.
And now you're not. You're not seeing untitled folder anymore. You're now seeing test folder,
so it changes on the fly. However, you have to do in l s again to get the update refreshed of you.
So that's that's my desktop. Now back to the case. Sensitivity. Let's let's go back. So in order to go back one level of the directory and type change directory and I tell you what did it for two periods
CD did It brings me back to wardrobe working directory that I was in previously
one that I was in prior to going to the desktop directory
he needed. That's a great command. You can back you up. It's easy. You don't have to type out the full. You don't have to change director and then talk about the full name of director I want to go to. It's just up one level CD did it remember that you can use it.
It's a great tool. So I'm back and I want to go. Let's just say I'm thinking CD. I want to go into the desktops or type desktop
There's no such filer directory,
Okay, Why? I forgot. I was supposed to capitalize the D. So if I go to see the desktop,
it drops me in. Okay, So again, it's important that you remember
when you're naming files when you're naming directories and creating directories, you got to make sure that you remember to use the right case. You could make it whatever case you want. If you want to be a lower case, since you can do that, you're welcome to do that. However,
when you're searching for that and you make sure you're searching using the right case,
okay, or when you're referencing it in a script or in a file it editing and filing reference, Ian got to make sure that you referenced the correct case spelling of that word. Otherwise, it won't work if you strip to your directorial fail.
So that's the best toss directory. So what if I want to get to the root of my file system. One outside seedy space,
four slash. That's rude.
Okay, now I'm there, So I'm gonna do I'm gonna make sure I'm there. I want to see I want to print my working director someone to pwd
and tells me there I'm in route. It's not ever gonna say route to spell it out. It's only this year only to see that forward slash that that is the universal icon for route. OK, I want a list. What's in my roof directory? I just type l s.
And these are all the things that are my root directory. Okay, my media file
user, far all these things are important. See, Rahm, home food. You'll start using this and we get into the part in the module that contains the part about the command line infrastructure, our interface and how to use it. Well, touching these a lot more.
This is kind of how you navigate the file system. You you change directory to change into a director that you want to go to.
You could also, if you don't want to change into a directory, but you just want to see what's in a specific directory. If I'm on the root directory game again, I'm gonna do divinity to find out where I am. I'm in route.
Well, I want to see. I want to see a list of what's in the desktop directory.
Well, I could do that. Well, I haven't actually change directory to go see it. I'll have to see the into that directory.
I can simply just type of l s. And in the name of the directory, I want a list
again. I'ma hit auto complete.
Okay, here's why. And then you get back to my print. Okay? So I actually need to go back to my working directory, my original home directory. So I need to go back to
So if I wanted to do that, actually, let me go back. Once he gets back at root,
I need to go to Bliss
best top. And there it is.
So originally I was trying to do in l s
and it wasn't letting me because I was in a different working directory. So I need to make sure that when I'm doing that, I have to do the entire
the entire directory path to get there. Okay, so let's use a different example of Simon Root right in route
I'm gonna do in l s and within the root directory. These the items that I can freely list. Okay. Without having to go through the full path.
So I just want a list What's in home. So why you do a list?
Oh, show me what's in home and shows me in the home directories directory file system. It shows me that there's only one user in there currently in that cyber ery admin, which is that's me. That's what I'm using right now. Okay?
And so if I want a list,
cyber admin shows me everything there. I've done this one having to actually go and change directory into that directory.
So l s is a nice little tool CD up to change directories.
All good stuff. Okay,
Now, this is a little bit of a longer. It's a little bit of a longer part. So if you need to take a break at this point time, that's fine. Speaker place to stop otherwise I'm gonna keep going forward and you can pause and go back and we'll go forward as much as you want.
But I'm gonna go ahead and keep going. It's just a few more things before we close out this part about using Lennox system
and that will help you to understand a little better. So in the top right hand corner here, what you're seeing there is a little up and down arrow, right? This is my network. This is my network area here network file, network sharing, stone network and sharing center. Click on that. And it shows me all my different connections. Right. So I go to edit connections
and shows me that I'm Ethernet wired connection.
shows me my connection. All right,
Automatic connected. This network is available on again. This network connection is a virtual machine, so it's sharing my wireless connection from my laptop.
Ethernet. There's my Mac address shows no Mac address. Quick and easy. Get the Mac.
Any security that I'm using, I'm not using any of this is simple installation. My I p settings. Apparently, I'm using D A C P. So it's pulling a d. A c p address from right. My cable router, my WiFi router, My cable modem.
I'm not running I p v six. Let's blank. OK? And you can name this whatever you want. All right?
And okay, we'll close that.
So this is where you're gonna find your your basic network stuff. Now, there is another part
in in this module, part five. We're actually gonna get to the networking introduction. Will. ***. Wolf will cover a lot more about the networking stuff in a little bit more detail. This is just a basic overview of the network. You can set up a vague A VPN configuration here.
Connection information tells you what it is. Here's your i p address. Quick and easy way to find it.
Another quick and easy way. And finders from the command line you can type in Thai f config.
I have config stands for interface configuration. Okay. And my my main interface, my first nick by default is either zero e t h zero e ther stands for Ethan and zero.
Okay. So either that zero There, you can see that my internet addresses 1 91 68 201 36 That's just a private, classy addresses behind my router.
that's basically that's That's basically a short introduction to the networking icon here and what you can do with it
again. It's pretty simple volume. Here's the time you could do the time settings. The calculator enough. Calculated with calendar,
they appear this little gear wheel is the is basically like. You're kind of like where your start menu is, where you go to shut down.
You can do a shutdown. Suspend. You could long out you can switch users right here. Okay.
Controlled. L will actually lock your screen. You need to walk away
system settings. That brings us back to what we saw him before. Just like our assistant preferences and Mac
Bun to help. And then about this computer.
Okay, tell you what it is. You're You're basically you're ula
Okay? These are basically what was pinned over here. What was in her software center
and an overview of 64 bits. Got a 20 big drive.
you know, one gig of memory basically tells you what the processor type is
again. This intel core I seven this is my physical process on my laptop since amusing of'em and the device name.
And again, Here's another area where I can actually go to us All the updates. So this is, um, this is using the Lenox system. So this part has basically covered just in review
is covered How you log in, how you navigate the tool bar with a different application, some of the common application,
what the search tool does and how to find somebody in common information like the I P address your system named your system. Build information. How to create a simple folder and a simple text document on the desktop. You just baseline things that you need to do to understand limits now works. You've never seen it before.
And again, if you have seen it, it's just really, really, uh,
elementary brush up on
on using the clinic system. We're gonna get a little bit more in depth with it, some of the networking stuff and setting out printing and file editing and trading flowers and directories in the later module. That's Module three, and it's covered Cover system administration.
So thanks for watching this video and stay tuned for the next ones
