If you're in the GUI, there's no need for it. And if you're in command, what kind of program wants to interrupt what it's doing and start the GUI? I'm kind of curious, cause I'd prefer not to get that error while doing something in either, so I can just avoid those kinds of apps?
Also, is there a way to rename "ls" to lets say "lss"? Also having ls playback a custom script error? Are there any applications that might use this command as well?
I know, I'm weird. hahaha
alias startx="echo do not use startx"
alias ls="echo do not use ls"
