Throughout the MeeGo Tablet SDK documentation, some standards are followed:
Code and terminal commands are shown in blocks, such as the following code snippet:
MApplication app(argc, argv); PanelPage *page = new PanelPage;
Terminal Commands and Privileges
Terminal commands always start with either "$" or "#", representing the prompt in the terminal. For terminal commands, if you are following along, the command should be copied or typed exactly as-is except for the "$" or "#" symbol at the beginning. A "$" symbol indicates the command is run by a user with normal user privileges. A "#" symbol indicates an assumption that the user is logged in as root. "$ sudo " indicates that a normal user is running a program with root privileges (it assumes you have setup "sudo power" on your Linux workstation). You must include "sudo" when running the command. For example:
$ sudo runProgram --opt1
indicates that you should type: "sudo runProgram --opt1" in your terminal, without the quotes.
