I known there are

fx
and
Fx
to move the cursor to the next/previous
x
occurrence in one line.but this command is in one line.

now I want to move cursor to the next line which first character is
x
,
is there any command the vim supply can achive this?

Answer

Try using search command by typing /^\s*x in normal mode

/ starts forward search
^ stands for the start of a line
\s* stands for none or some white space
x stands for x, the character you want to search

You may want read some vim help manuals first; For example:

:help /
:help usr_27
:help pattern
