Use aliases for commands in Ubuntu
I sometimes get tired of typing long commands over and over (for example, to install packages from apt-get) so I looked up how to create aliases (shortcut commands). If you could type something like “gimme” instead of “sudo apt-get install” it can make life so much sweeter! This was done using Ubuntu 14.04.
Open .bashrc file for edit
sudo vi ~/etc/.bashrc
Add the following line:
alias gimme=’sudo apt-get install’
Save and exit
