Command tracer?

Hi All: I hope I am not in the wrong section of the forum for this topic.. My question relates to the existence (or not) of a command tracer. For example: (in terminal) one would enter it's name. (I'll give it the fanciful name of "command-trace") It would then follow the next command the ...

Ghex and "." files SOLVED

Hi All: I have been meaning to ask this question for years. When using Ghex, I can't find out how to navigate to "dot" files (e.g. .somethingorother) I have searched through the preferences and etc. for the answer, but keep coming up empty-handed. Anyone know how to do this (without copyin...

Re: Update Firefox

Pierre: Thank you for that bit of information, that explained why the "update" box didn't have the old familiar look and function. Now it does. However, after following sleeper12's procedure (which I know is correct, because its absence is what caused me to make this post) I still have Fi...

Re: Weird behaviour by Dell with LM

Lord Boltar: I could find no such option. I found "fast boot", but that had no effect. Before I changed that, I noticed that it was now complaining about not finding "drive 3". Although I wasn't directly looking for it, I don't remember seeing any setting saying anything to the e...

Update Firefox (only) SOLVED

Hi All: I have Firefox 64.0 with LM19 (64 bit). I would like to update Firefox only , but because it was bundled with the LM19 install, the way to proceed isn't exactly clear (the update screen looks like all or nothing). It seems to me that the best procedure would have been a manual install in lie...

Weird behaviour by Dell with LM

Hi All: When booting LM 19 with a Dell Optiplex 380 or 780 I keep getting a message that says "no boot device found, press F1 to continue" or other words to that effect. Magically, pressing F1 allows the machine to "find" the boot drive. This may seem like a minor inconvenience, ...

Re: Audacity or Rhythmbox fixed time file play?

Welcome: Well, I think I could accomplish that (playerctl on 19.1), but since I really need to get this done, the diversion of time and effort to a subproject doesn't make sense, to me at least. I am going to grab another drive and install LM 20. This, of course, gets me to thinking about some of wh...

Re: Audacity or Rhythmbox fixed time file play?

Welcome: Rhythmbox has a good random-play function, and while I haven't seen a way to get it to play songs by hour and genre, (that is Hour 1: play a rock'n'roll, then country, then R&B, then jazz.....Hour 2 play a rock'n'roll, then blues, then folk....) it's random function works so well I may ...
