 <​file>​tux@dolilive:​~$ _</​file>​ <​file>​tux@dolilive:​~$ _</​file>​

-    * **~** in my «home» (**~** is the symbol for the home of the user logged in!)+    * **~**, is my «home» (**~** is the symbol for the home directory ​of the user logged in!)
-We enter at the prompt our first command: ​+<note warning>​warning:​ **~** depends on the administrative rights you actually have</​note>​ 
 +If you are //root//, any data will be automatically registered in the special directory ///root//. The tree of the main directory is also named the //root of the file system//. The symbol / is the first sign that you see alone or in the first place of all the other paths! It is not possible to unbind the //root of the file system// and the main directory //root// is used by the administrator //root// for all of their transactions! This directory ///root// is a special directory as for example as it has to be in the same partition as the tree of main directories as well as hold the contents of the first level!  
 +The //home// of users is a subdirectory in the main directory ///home//! The path is as follows: 
 +tux can be defined differently at the installation if you don't want to be called tux! In such a case the path would be: **/​home/​SomeWhatYouWillBe**. Both the contents of home, as well as the contents of //​SomeWhatYouWillBe//​ can also be contained in a separate partition. The automatic installer in the SliTaz Panel can help you to do that if you wish.  
 +We can enter now at the prompt our first command: ​
 ===== ls ===== ===== ls =====
 +__You don't need to exit__
 +**ls** is a command to list files located in the actual directory. Adding parameters and/or paths it can do that in each directory where you have the rights and can do more than just showing the file names. ​
 +Please test:
 +    * ls --help
 +(more? see [[http://​​wiki/​Ls|here]])
 +And test now please:
 +    * ls /usr/bin
