Something smaller like (d)ash would be fine except for the fact that too many morons write their scripts to be compatible with bash instead of sh.
Fish will never catch on for common interactive use because most people can't comprehend the idea of using different shells for different purposes.

Bash is not a terminal, it's a shell.
You run bash inside a terminal emulator program. I'm not familiar with WSL but my guess is they're also running bash inside a win terminal emulator.

The closest thing there is to having tabs inside your shell is running something like tmux or screen. But that's very different from what you're talking about I'm sure.

Well is there a difference between a daemon and a program started from cron then?

Nolan Ortiz

You should make those "=" sings into doubles "==".
Also for the record the code could be made cleaner by using a single "case" statement instead of if, else. But either way works, so nothing to worry about.

A daemon runs in the background, doesnt prompt or anything. But cron can run daemons or programs that prompt or output stuff to the user.

why can't I run chromium on debian without in root and the --no-sandbox flag?

it is just a minimal debian 10 netinst on virtualbox

sudo apt-get install network-manager xorg openbox xdm pcmanfm tint2 xterm chromium chromium-sandbox --no-install-recommends

typing in "chromium" or "chromium --no-sandbox" prints

I'm wondering how it's even possible to work with that shebang. AFAIK ${file%.flac} is a bash feature.

Also, case instead of if/else would make it more pretty. I'd do it like this:

#!/bin/bash

case "$1" in
320)
for file in ./*.flac; do
flac -cd "$file" | lame -b 320 - "${file%.flac}.mp3"
done
;;
V0)
for file in ./*.flac; do
flac -cd "$file" | lame -V0 --vbr-new - "${file%.flac}.mp3"
done
;;
V2)
for file in ./*.flac; do
flac -cd "$file" | lame -V2 --vbr-new - "${file%.flac}.mp3"
done
;;

Lisp is "homosymbolic" (or whatever).
Everything is lists. It also makes heavy use of recursion.

One thing I find beautiful about Lisp/Scheme which is simple enough to understand and explain is that you can basically do the equivalent of stuff like this:
callMyFunction( if ( some_global ) { return "hello"; } else { return "goodbye"; } );
The return value of the inner if-statement would be evaluated first and then passed on to act as an argument of callMyFunction(). You can really put Lisp/Scheme code together in odd combinations that you really can't do in other languages.
Of course you can always accomplish the same things in other languages, nobody ever said you couldn't. It's just a question of how its put together.
Because you have that "homosymbolic" factor you can end up writing things like the above which seem almost "inside out" compared to how other languages would do it, and it feels more flexible and expressive that way.

Python can do some similar stuff, but it's not as powerful, not as clean, and is limited to a single line.

There's even some things which are kind of "mind fucks".
Since everything is the same (homosymbolic) you can even do something like return from a function the "return" function of that function itself. But that's something I've only read about, I don't have experience with it myself.

I actually have exactly the setup you are talking about.
Install Windows on Sata first. Make sure it runs and boots fine. Then install Linux on M.2
Install your Linux bootloader (I use grub) on the M.2, so Windows doesn't even know it exists. This way it won't try to overwrite it. When generating your grub.cfg, make sure you have os-prober installed and your Windows partition mounted. os-prober will automatically detect Windows on the other disk, and make a boot menu entry. Put the M.2 as the first entry in the boot-priority list in your BIOS. You can put your Windows partition in your fstab, but make sure it's mounted read-only, since ntfs-3g, the Linux driver for ntfs isn't perfect (due to ntfs being proprietary), and can corrupt yout windows partition (although it's very unlikely). Mounting your Linux partition in Windows is advised against, as all ext4 implementations are known to cause corruption, even when mounting read-only.

As for the HDD, I recommend udf. It's natively supported by both Windows and Linux and supports UNIX file permissions. Format the disk in Windows with

FORMAT /F UDF
.
I had a problem where the partition would become read-only in Windows aafter writing to it in Linux for the first time, but that was fixed when I let Windows perform the filesystem check it suggests when you connect the HDD.
If this seems like too much of a hassle, you can also use ntfs for your HDD, with the caveat, that Linux will think all you files are executable (because ntfs doesn't support UNIX file permissions), and it might get corrupted (once again, very unlikely, but possible nonetheless).

I don't even follow this, but I get the feeling you have your arguments reversed.
You should be able to figure this out yourself, but the ln command arguments are always the _target_ (existing file that you want the symlink to _point to_) 1st, then the location that the new link file is to be created at 2nd

So why do you need to move firefox to create that link? You said you moved it to a new directory. I don't know where you need to link it for your applications menu since I don't have one myself.
But it should have been as simple as:
ln -s A B
Creates a symlink B -> A
Or more specifically something like
ln -s /path/to/your/executable/firefox /path/to/application/menu/firefox

I'm using fdupes to identify redundant files on my drive.

finduplicates(){

done
# } | sort -nr > /home/ian/duplicate-files.txt &

}

This produces a text file with duplicates like this. However, I would like to have a newline between each group of duplicates. Since there can be more than two identical files, adding a newline after each two lines doesn't work. Do you have any suggestions?

I had that problem with Debian Buster yesterday (though I was using Btrfs instead of MD RAID). dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc refused to install grub to the second drive, but running grub-install manually worked fine. Maybe because dpkg-reconfigure wanted to do some /dev/disk/by-id crap and I just ran grub-install /dev/sdb.

If you are familiar with Debian try testing, if you are unfamiliar but want to try it then stable. If you are new to GNU+Linux then an Ubuntu flavor is recommended.

I've used Ubuntu and ElementaryOS in the past but always came back to Windows because school and reliance on Office and wanting to vidya

But I'm finishing uni now (just need to write my final paper) so I'd prefer to just have a snappy machine.

I'm a soon-to-be telecommunications engineer anyways and in turn I'd benefit from GNU/Linux knowledge anyways

I haven't used Debian though. I'm asking mostly because I don't want to get stuck towards the end of the release cycle for stable and install a soon to be out of date variant. I haven't got a clue how upgrading works on Debian but on Ubuntu at least it tended to break everything

Levi Taylor
Levi Taylor

I literally just found the problem and fixed it, mostly.
I switched to grub2 and it started working. Will have to write up what I did. A short summary:

Partition both disks to MBR with a liveusb. Just make a new DOS partition table with fdisk on each.

Boot into debian installer, then choose manual partitioning. For each drive, do automatic partitioning, and then change the main partition to a RAID partition.
Create a raid array out of those, make that partition bootable, and set it to / and ext4, etc.

go through the installer and install grub to one of the disks.

Boot into system, and as root install grub2, and go through the grub to grub2 conversion process, installing grub2 on both disks.

Since it's MBR, the boot record will be outside of the RAID partitions themselves and will point to grub, which will start up mdadm, assemble the main partition and boot linux from it.

UEFI... yeah I couldn't get that working.
My board does support hardware raid, but it doesn't have any linux software to monitor the arrays (that I know of). So you'd have no idea if any drives died until both of them did. Which helps a little but it defeats the point.

Alexander Davis
Alexander Davis

Interesting. Well, first see how to make a separate /home partition and give the majority of the disk. That way you can distrohop later while keeping everything in your home directory intact. Second, I dont use Debian but I think the new Debian 10 has a stable branch you can be sure is good. In any case with a home folder you can switch distros easily.

Do you really need to use "du" though? fdupes comes with a --size flag.
The hard part of what you're doing is the sorting though. Even if you can add your newlines what happens if multiple files have the same size, wouldn't they get mixed together by the sort command?

Henry Peterson
Henry Peterson

UEFI is a shitshow if you want mirrored boot disks anyway, because it requires that EFI system partition bullshit. There's no good way to mirror that, though I've seen some ugly and extraordinarily fragile-looking hacks.

Leo Williams
Leo Williams

Just for information - UEFI boot is fucky with RAID since it reads the filesystem instead of the device. MBR just reads the drive as a block and grabs the first few bytes. And then mdadm puts the RAID data

Yeah I saw some hacks which look goofy - like setting mdadm in 0.9 so it writes raid data to the rear of the partition rather than the start, and then maybe having normal partition data at the start so it tricks UEFI into thinking it's a fat32..
Or just having them both as fat32 and doing some kind of goofy sync between them. I was considering this but it seems stupid.
I think the only way to get it working would to have your disks have a boot partition in fat32, swaps, and your main system partitions as raid arrays. Then when running, have a script which syncs the two boot partitions. In theory it should work.
But it sounds gay.

Will my start up time take less if I use a smaller partition for my OS?

Brandon Nguyen

Actually now that I think about it you can ensure uniqueness by using a counter
Try this:

finduplicates(){

count=0
size=0

while IFS= read -r file; do
if [[ x"$file" == x ]]; then
echo "$count ${size%$'\t'*} ----------------"
((count++))
else
size=$(du "$file")
echo "$count $size"
fi
done < <(fdupes -r .) | sort -k2 -k1 -nr | sed 's/^[0-9]* //' > ./duplicate-files.txt &

}


It prints a counter on each line to ensure files are grouped properly (even different files with the same size will be kept in different groups).
Blank lines are replaced with the counter and the last reported size by "du" (that ensures the newlines appear in the right place when sorted).
It's sorted by both the 1st and 2nd columns so you get file size grouping and then sub-grouping by the counter column.
And then finally the counter column is cut off at the end with sed.
(you can just ignore the number at the start of the ----------- lines).

Gavin Ross

No problem. I'm helping because I actually want this script for myself too.
Also here is a version that uses fdupes --size flag instead of "du", which seems more accurate

finduplicates3(){

count=0
size=0

while IFS= read -r file; do
if [[ x"$file" == x ]]; then
echo "$count ${size%$'\t'*} ----------------"
((count++))
elif [[ "$file" =~ ^[0-9] ]]; then
size="$(echo "$file" | awk '{print $1}')"
else
echo "$count $size $file"
fi
done < <(fdupes -r --size .) | sort -k2 -k1 -nr | sed 's/^[0-9]* //' > ./duplicate-files.txt &
}


I think that should be good enough.

Are environment variables (HTTP_PROXY etc) the most basic way to set a proxy in GNU/Linux? I tried to set a proxy with these but it didn't work (some basic cli programs did work) and I don't know if I did it wrong or if I need a separate setting for GUI programs. Setting it in GNOME worked but I'd like to use a WM which doesn't include easy settings. Also the distribution is Guix if that changes anything.

Also a small correction (useful for if you're using directories other than ".")
change the "elif" line to this
elif [[ "$file" =~ ^[0-9]*\ bytes\ each: ]]; then
It's a more exact match to prevent accidentally mistaking a directory name beginning with a number as a file size.

Ok wizards, I require your help.

I have the following in a shell script:

for pwad in "${pwad_dir}"/Maps/*; do
if [ -e "$pwad" ]; then
echo "${pwad}"
else
continue
fi
done | awk \
'BEGIN {printf "PWADS/Maps\n"; FS="/"; ORS=" - "}
!/in compendium/ {print $NF}
END {printf "\n"}'

This is a for loop that feeds the filenames in a directory to awk. They are formatted as

/path/to/file/and/i/want/this/ebin
/path/to/file/and/i/want/this/meme
/path/to/file/and/i/want/this/names
...

etc, where we only want the last field of each record.

So with my current awk command, I get this sort of output

ebin - meme - names - they - dont - stop - coming - wow - amazing - more - yes - thats - a_lot - of - maps - wtf - etc - you - get - the - point - let - me - just - interject - for - a - moment - what - you're - referring - to - as - linux - is - in - fact - gnu/linux 

Now, what I want to accomplish is for awk or some other tool to help me print out these ^ in columns, as the ls command would do for you, automatically adjusting itself to the max width of the names and drawing columns based on that on the terminal.

How do I go about doing that?

It moves one thing to another as a byte steam. Used for doing things like deleting everything accidentally. really though it's useful for imaging disks. Instead of files, partitions, etc, dd just reads the raw data from what you direct it at. Direct it at /dev/sda and it'll read the first byte on the disk to the last. Including the MBR, the partition headers, everything, as a byte stream. It's cool.

well, the fact is, i don't edit anything related to init service, so i may as well ignore it. but. i've got this issue when i power off, when one service would hang up and close 2 minutes instead of two milliseconds. i'm too lazy to find a solution to the problem, which is probably the first google link. then, i have void linux experience and know that what really cripples compatability is musl, not init system. and i'm kinda scared of the route systemd takes; kinda heard it tries to add systemd-specific code to other independend programs like tmux; which is as wrong as distribution-specific heavy patching. so, these facts combined, non-systemd init system may be of more benefit than systemd, but actually it does no make real difference.
so, what i've decided to do is just ask Jow Forums, which in my opinion is similiar to rolling the answer. i'll install debian for now, but also'll play with devuan in vm and see for myself

Kubuntu should get wifi out of the box, be sure to install the extra (proprietary) software to be sure your wifi works outside of the installer.

But if you're installing Kubuntu... you shouldn't. KDE Neon gives you the latest KDE (within days, not months like Kubuntu) built on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS. I find it to be a much more pure, polished, and inviting distro if you want KDE. There is a GUI package selection tool, but it will pay dividends in spades if you learn how to install stuff from the command line.

If you have any trouble, just look up tutorials on how to do stuff on "Ubuntu" because that's basically what Neon is. Same caveat for wifi drivers applies, make sure to install the extra (potentially proprietary) software during install.

GNOME developers plan to disable the Snap plugin for GNOME Software, as Canonical has started creating its own Snap Store and won't be using GNOME Software in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. According to Phoronix, "Canonical's in-development Snap Store will obviously be focused just on their own Snap effort and not supporting the likes of Flatpak. Due to the likelihood that the GNOME Software Snap plug-in will quickly suffer from bit-rot and pose a maintenance burden to GNOME developers with little to no return, it's certainly reasonable that they would at least disable this plug-in."

I installed fedora a week ago, everything works well. Now I installed kde/plasma desktop on it and it can't adjust the laptop's brightness? The slider in plasma does nothing, but the gnome desktop's brightness control works when logged in with that.
Already installed xbacklight and rebooted, doesn't work either. ls - al /sys/class/backlight exists too, but still can't control the screen's brightness, eventhough it can automatically switch off the screen itself when set so under a preset time within its system settings menu.

I'm a wintard trying out Linux because your shilling finally worked. Do I seriously need to enter my password for everything? This is killing my desire to keep using it. Is there any way to make this easier without destroying all security?

a raw system, badly thought-out, most things break, very unfriendly to new users
let's call it "minimalist" and make its deficiencies look like its features

look in your

~/.bashrc
, there's a line about password entering for sudo in there, it's self explanatory once you see it.

Linux is just the kernel. The system's name is GNU/Linux.

I get what you're saying and you're right, especially if you're looking to sell whatever you're writing, but really, who on here cares? Who has no problems stealing movies and music, but won't steal a few lines of code? I don't know if I've heard an excuse for that "philosophy".
