I think their asking, if they were to switch to straight Ubuntu, could they use the same terminal commands that they use in Zorin.

Since Zorin is built on Ubuntu, I think its very likely that you can use the same commands. But I can tell you right now, there is no way in heck that your gonna enjoy straight Ubuntu over Zorin lol.

I feel different. I think OP has two installations, Ubuntu and Zorin in his/her device and wants to use commands from Zorin to do actions in Ubuntu. (I could be extremely wrong)

Have you ever successfully done this before. Like on an other distro

Nope, I don't believe in doing anything related to remote desktop, remote operation of computers, I don't consider it safe. And because I have no experience with that, I have no advice.

khnome, are you talking about Ubuntu and Zorin dual booting on one machine or both installed separately on different machines?

If so, a user can Mount the partition containing the other distro and then send terminal commands to it. In fact, many of us use this method when we need to fix a broken installation by booting from the Live Zorin OS Medium, then mounting the installed copy and sending commands to it.
There are many tutorials on the web for mounting a partition in Ubuntu 20.04.

I knew when I wrote this that you will get in here and tell that I am wrong. That's why I said correct me if I am wrong. :crazy_face:

What makes this funny is that I had not even seen that post. I had to scroll up and look to see what you were talking about.:stuck_out_tongue:

And without Live Zorin OS Medium is it possible?

Yes, the principles are exactly the same. You are just booting into Zorin OS on Partition instead of on USB.
