Question Gas Fireplaces - No Idea How To Use?

I bought a townhouse recently that came with a gas fireplace in the master bedroom and another in the living room - both share a chimney. When I had the home inspected, everything checked out OK (chimney, fireplaces, etc.), and I wrote down some instructions on how to use the fireplaces, but unfortunately lost them and don't remember anything specific. Would prefer not to blow myself up, or do anything unsafe.

Can anyone point me to some info or instructions on how to use these gas fireplaces. I know it involves lighting a pilot light for them (although have no idea how to do this, where it is, or whether to leave it lit all the time), and then turning a knob to actually light fireplace, but beyond that am clueless. See attached for photos of the fireplaces (hopefully that helps identify them). Thanks!

All the good stuff is in the area below the log, behind the vent!

I would venture that they are all pretty standard but my first suggestion would be to look in there for a manufacturer then see if you can look up instructions for your specific model!

Is the one knob the only control for the logs? If so then you likely turn it to a pilot position and push in and hold. Light the pilot and continue holding the knob in for a minute. Then let go of the knob and the pilot should stay lit. Then you can rotate the knob to light the main fire and adjust the flame size.
