Here is a useful little tool for those command line junkies out there:

https://github.com/joelthelion/autojump/wiki

If you read to the end of that you will see that it is already included in debian sid but for some reason not activated??

Anyway I can vouch for the fact that it works on Fedora although you do have to wait for it to build up a list of 'regular' destinations before it becomes really useful. You can check what destinations it has stored with the command:

Code: Select all
jumpstat

Having had time to look a this program for a day or so I can only say that although it does work, it only does so with bash. Their documentation says it works with zsh as well, although I disagree. Of course for most people that would not be a problem as bash is what they will be using. As for me fish is my first choice - and it definitely doesn't work with that, zsh is second choice and bash only third. It is for this reason (I use fish all the time on LMDE) that I haven't tested it on this platform and probably never will.
