Install tldr on Nintendo Switch
The tldr project is a collection of community-maintained help pages for command-line tools, that aims to be a simpler, more approachable complement to traditional man pages.
Run it by typing "tldr
" into terminal.
Maybe you are new to the command-line world? Or just a little rusty? Or perhaps you can't always remember the arguments to lsof, or tar?
It also is more digestable than man pages which blasts pages of useless stuff at you every time you use it.
Fortunately, tldr is very easy to install on your Nintendo Switch in just two steps.
- Install Pi-Apps - the best app installer for Nintendo Switch.
- Use Pi-Apps to install tldr.
For the best chance of this working, we recommend using the latest version of Switchroot L4T Ubuntu Jammy, which is currently version 5.1.2 Ubuntu Jammy.
tldr will run on L4T Ubuntu ARM64.
