I'm trying to figure what commands are available in Ubuntu Touch before I think about installing it on my phone.

I've figured out that apt-get is there. But what about dd, top and ssh etc., etc.?

Can someone give me a list? It should be as simple as typing in the terminal:

ls /usr/bin/

Thank you in advance.


I'm not sure the exact answer but here's how you would find out...

find ${PATH//:/ } -maxdepth 1 -type f -executable -printf "%f\n" | sort -u

Assuming you have find and sort. This will return every executable file in your $PATH environment variable.

    Thank you Oli, even though this does not answer my question, it is still a nice example of how to find the commands. And also thank you again Oli for trying to be helpful to so many people on askubuntu.com – Christopher Nov 14 '13 at 0:44
