Afterwards, you can use the guide below to use the same or similar commands on your personal system.
To run these commands on a Linux machine you just have to run the terminal program. The name of it changes depending on the specific type of Linux. On Ubuntu, for instance, it is called Xterm. Once you run this program it will open up an interface similar to the one used in the workshop that you can use to run commands.
