Ubuntu – How to see terminal commands generated by GUI actions

command linegui

I am new to Linux and only know my way around because of the GUI. Is there a way to see the equivalent commands on the terminal to do the same things as using the GUI? Thanks

  • Probably not, because a GUI most of the time isn't calling the same command as a user would type in the terminal.

    That said, if you want to know more about terminal commands, these are some usefull sites which explain common commands:
