"Hi friends! Welcome to the third and final segment of our journey through Linux CLI. We'll wrap up this series by looking at a number of commands that deal with Basic System Administration and Networking."

"printtool
(as root in X-terminal) Configuration tool for your printer(s). To access the settings directly go to the file /etc/printcap."

"setup
(as root) Configure the mouse, soundcard, keyboard, X-windows, system services. Works only on Red Hat Linux based systems. Most distributions however ship with a comparable tool, look up the documentation of your distribution."

"xvditune
(in X-terminal). Adjust the settings of the graphical display for all resolutions so as to eliminate black bands, shift the display right/left/up/down, etc. (first use the adjustments on your monitor to fit your text mode correctly on the screen). To make the changes permanent, display the frequencies on the screen and transfer them to the setup file /etc/X11/XF86Config."
