Finding and Using the Command Line
Finding the command line is a little diffrent for each operating system. The first step is to find the program that will allow you to access your computer's command line.
You can find the Terminal application through Spotlight (click the
magnifying glass in the top right of the screen and start typing
"Terminal"), or navigate to
/Applications/Utilities/Terminal in Finder.
Launch Git Bash via the shortcut on your Desktop, or locate Git Bash in All Programs under Git. A new (mostly black) window will open. Tip: Hit the Insert key to paste text into Git Bash. You will not be able to copy and paste text into Git Bash when you are interacting with the virtual machine.
- Ubuntu: Click the Ubuntu logo and start typing "Terminal".
- Fedora: From the Main Menu bar select "Applications > System Tools > Terminal".
Connecting to the VM
You'll use this command line to connect to your virtual machine. The VM has its own command line inside.
Using the Command line
Otherwise, return to setting up the virtual machine.
