You have Linux installed and running.
The GUI is working fine, but you are getting tired of changing your desktop themes.
You keep seeing this "terminal" thing.

If you want to do something in the terminal but don't know what command to use, try apropos.

For example supposing you want to copy a file, open a terminal and type:

apropos copy
.. the terminal will then produce a list of commands relating to copying. In the list of results we find this:

cp (1)               - copy files and directories
To find out more about the cp command, type:

cp --help
To consult the manual pages on the cp command, type:

man cp
(try the same for any command you want to find out more about)

Here's a site on which you can paste or type a command into a box, and it will explain each part of the command:

explainshell.com

Here's one that checks scripts and commands for errors:

One last thing, the damn fine source of information that is info, just type info in a terminal or <CTRL>i in emacs; eh voila the complete browsable linux  manual in an organised index, kde users can even browse/view man pages and info in konqueror for a more gui centric way ... enjoy
