-As dCore is based on Tiny Core Linux, working knowledge of Tiny Core is beneficial. Although dCore is managed primarily by command line, [[http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:x-desktop#dcore_window_managers_and_desktop_environments|supported Window Managers]] provide user friendly OnDemand and System Tools menus, including a Control Panel and menu shortcuts for ''sce-import'', run program, screenshot, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top_%28software%29|top process monitor]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xkill|Xkill]]. Control Panel items include Backup/Restore, Date/Time, Network, [[http://freecode.com/projects/wbar/|wbar]], Mount Tool, Mouse Tool, System Stats, Wallpaper, Services, Swapfile Tool, Terminal Server and SCE Tools. The SCE Tools button provides quick graphic access to the most commonly used SCE management commands with default options via terminal popup (sce-import, sce-load, sce-debpurge, sce-update, sce-remove). +Review the [[http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:basic_usage_guide?&#persistence_and_system_changes|dCore Basic Usage Guide]].

-Review [[http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:extensions#dcore_sce_extension_management_commands|dCore SCE Extension Management Commands]]. Other common commands include version (update dCore base system) and backup (backup mydata.tgz). In a terminal, pressing tab twice lists all available system commands and running ''busybox --list'' prints all [[http://linux.die.net/man/1/busybox|BusyBox]] commands. Entering ''command_name --help'' (two dashes) usually provides usage information.+

-If using a supported Window Manager the built-in Control panel (System Tools → Control Panel) has an 'Sce Tools' button to auto-launch ''sce-import'' and other commonly used SCE management commands. Otherwise from a terminal run //cpanel// or //sce-tools//. This is most suitable for new users, those that prefer graphic applications or those that do not require fine-grained control over SCE extension management.+If using a supported Window Manager the built-in Control panel (System Tools → Control Panel) has an 'SCE Tools' button to auto-launch ''sce-import'' and other commonly used SCE management commands.

 Traditionally dCore extensions are managed via command line using the [[http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:sce-import_command|dCore ''sce-import'' Command]]. As software is usually installed for use at boot time, a user would typically run ''sce-import -b SCE'' (eg. sce-import -b nano), where SCE is the desired Debian package name. Running simply ''sce-import'' will allow searching for the starting characters of a desired package name. Running ''sce-import -c'' will allow searching for packages that contain the desired search characters. The desired Debian package and dependencies are downloaded directly from the applicable Debian or Ubuntu repository and the SCE creation process can be monitored in the terminal. An imported SCE still needs to be loaded into the filesystem for use, review the [[ http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:sce-load_command|dCore ''sce-load'' Command]] and [[http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:sce-ondemand_command|dCore ''sce-ondemand'' Command]]. Traditionally dCore extensions are managed via command line using the [[http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:sce-import_command|dCore ''sce-import'' Command]].
