Subject description: Command lines
 

Hi. I'm a novice to Tahrpup and I want to know, please, what are the Puppy Linux command lines equivalent to those in Ubuntu, as listed below, because I don't know how to use the Puppy's terminal:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install
sudo apt-get remove
sudo apt-get purge
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get autoclean
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-cache search

If this is the wrong place for posting the question, have mercy.
Thank you since now for the help and have a nice day.

Puppy doesn't use apt, so there is no equivalent to those commands.

In Puppy, you use the gui program Puppy Package Manager (aka the PPM), to install and uninstall programs. There is a button that updates the databases (like apt-get update does).

The apt-get clean and autoclean doesn't apply because puppy doesn't cache packages it installs, so there is nothing to clean. Also, upgrades in Puppy are handled differently too.

So, the short answer is use the Puppy Package Manager application to do most of the things that apt does in Debian and Ubuntu.

The How To section is more to post explanations how to do things, not questions. You should have posted in the Beginner Questions section.
