'''The command line''' is often mentioned as a tool for starting or setting up [[Flightgear]], [[Atlas]], [[Terrasync]], [[FGCOM]] and other programs related to Flightgear. Many users simply don't know, what the command line acutally is or how to make use of it. This article shall help...
As an advice independent from what operating system you may use:
'''Try to use copy & paste as much as you can in order to avoid spelling mistakes, whenever you try to execute command line commands!'''
The command line will do ''exactly'' what you tell her and when you spell it wrong, she'll act the wrong way...
==Windows XP==
That's most you'll need to know about the command line, when operating under Windows XP. Any commands that appear in the forums or in a wiki can be executed directly on the command line. after you have changed into the correct directory first. ''italic'''''bold'''
On Linux systems, there are several ways to get a command line.As Flightgear does only run in a graphic X-Window system, we'll use a so-called ''terminal''. The mosty used window managers are Gnome, KDE and Xfce. First way to get yourself a console would be using the window managers menue:'''KDE''' KDE-Menue > System > Konsole'''Gnome''' Applications > Accessories > Terminal'''Xfce''' Applications > Terminal A different approach would be pressing ''Alt F2''. That should open a dialog box, where you can enter one single command. Depending on which distribution of Linux you chose and which window manager you use, you can try "xterm", "konsole", "gnome-terminal", "gtkterm",
