    I need help learning Linux

    Option to ignore specific content

    Beginner questions for people with Linux experience

    Hey Dstar, welcome to Linux.org! Yep, you can use open office as Wiz said, or you can give LibreOffice a shot since it's a fork and (maybe) better. It'd be similar and have all of the tools you're used to in Open Office. As far as a good distribution to start with, Kali would not be it...

    "No such file or directory"

    Yep - I agree with khedger. Test your remote connection first with ssh. Then cd into the directory where you want to copy things and run a pwd to see the directory path. Then use that path in your macbook when you're using scp as the remote directory.

    rsync transferring files between two servers

    @SabSchap rsync is a great tool to get files from here to there (or there to here!). I'll usually run it with these flags: Copying a directory, here to there: rsync -avz --progress /path/to/directory/ [email protected]:/path/to/place/it/ Copying a directory, there to here: rsync -avz --progress...
