LXTerminal Commands that we talked about in this video:


"list" displays the contents of the current directory - programs show up in blue, files are displayed in pink ls results.png

"change directory" allows you to change the current directory or folder

cd ..
typing cd and then adding a space and two dots moves you back up a directory in the file structure
"print working directory" will display your current location on the system lxt-pwd only.png
sudo raspi-config
sudo means "run as super user" - the user "pi" does not have super-user privileges, and that's ok!  raspi-config will open the raspberry pi configuration menu in LXTerminal.
