  • The ls command: using the -a flag to allow hidden files, and the -R command for recursive directories.

    ls -aR /home/username/

    It will be a long scroll in your terminal, you might want to save it to a file.

    ls -aR /home/username/ >filename.txt

    Most info like this can be obtained by using the man file. In a terminal type "man ls" and you can see all the options.

  • as you can see, there a hundred ways to tackle the same problem ... this is usually the case in Linux / *nix.

    Here's another one:

    du -h (the -h is optional, it just makes the sizes easier to read).
