Byobu

I just found out that I have Byobu on my Cinnamon 18.3. Has it always been there, or was it installed recently?

I have the distinct feeling that I regularly receive supplements rather than updates. Is that supposed to happen?

Byobu is only one example of it.



kindly,

Cinnamon Nemo keybindings

I would very much want to disable some of the Nemo hotkeys, especially the Del key that removes objects from my data carriers, and preferably the BackSpace key as well. This causes real issues in my case, even lost some data over it. If it's not already optional, please make it so! I did install dco...

Re: Terminal background picture

Thank you for responding :) I have checked the repository, but the descriptions there do not state whether such effects are possible. I tried XTerm, but that did no good, and I uninstalled it again. Perhaps someone could tell me which terminal 17.1 used? Or which one I should use now instead? Could ...

Terminal background picture

I switched from 17.1 (Rebecca) to Sonya (18.2), both Cinnamons. I use it both for professional purposes and as a comfortable living room machine for myself and for guests. I really really really miss the ability to set the terminal's background picture :( I would be very happy if I could get it back...

Re: How to render my network 'managed'

Addendum: I checked my network stuff now, and somehow the matter evolved after the previous post. The network is managed now, although it wasn't for like a year before my post, and my router does show the host name correctly. Even the dropped packages reported in that post do not even show up anymor...

[CLOSED] How to render my network 'managed'

Hi :) I have a set of network issues that may be related on my Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca Cinnamon. This is an updated version of another post in which I reported issues with my Apache as well, but those are resolved now. Also, for some reason, the waiting for network configuration -message is gone, al...

Re: Create mount points on a ramdisk using fstab

Thank you for your reply, Mute Ant! The ability to create several tmpfs mount points, and in particular by creating them via the command line, is very helpful! :idea: That greatly improves the flexibility indeed! Now I can make Linux Mint use my external hard disk's /var/www folder only when it is p...

Re: Create mount points on a ramdisk using fstab

I see. Hence the peculiar file sizes reported in /proc ! Yet, risking getting off the topic of this thread, I wonder just what the function of that directory is, and how Linux uses it. Meanwhile I tried adjusting my fstab by adding: tmpfs /var/lock tmpfs defaults,nodev,size=256M 0 1 tmpfs /var/run t...

Re: Create mount points on a ramdisk using fstab

Thank you for your replies Fabien. They were quite insightful indeed. I studied the links, as well as some Googled sites about ramfs vs. tmpfs. There is indeed no need to create several mount points on a tmpfs, since it is merely accessed via mount points. And most contemporary Linuxes appear to red...

Re: Create mount points on a ramdisk using fstab

Thank you for your reply. /proc appears to contain some static data, but mostly it contains numbered directories that are associated with currently running processes. So I figured that I could move those to a ramdisk as well, if only I set the one but last field of the fstab record to 1, meaning tha...

Create mount points on a ramdisk using fstab

Hello everyone! I created a ramdisk (tmpfs), and I successfully added it to my /etc/fstab . Now I want to use that single ramdisk, mounted at /mnt/ram/ to mount several file system root folders, such as /proc and /tmp there, but each in its own subdirectory . One question I have is if it is really n...

Re: How to implement an "Are you root?" test in a shell script

It is useful only rarely, but you could in some instances decide to ignore being or not being root, until the practice at run-time proves it to be relevant and not the case. This could be a strategy for programs which has modes that do and modes that do not need to be run as root. But indeed, typica...

I want a directory where I can put scripts which my guests should be able to run without a password, but not be able to read.

Re: How to implement an "Are you root?" test in a shell script

Root always has user ID 0. That is the most reliable check I think.

Code: Select all

#! /bin/bash

[ $UID == 0 ] && p="indeed" || p="NOT"
printf "You are $p root\n"

[ $XAUTHORITY ] && p="X" || p="tty"
printf "You are in $p mode\n"

echo
echo Have a nice day!

Kindly,

Re: Workspace switching + fullscreen windows minimizing

At my Cinnamon 17.1, running World of Warcraft 5.4.8 (MoP) under Wine 2.3. Later it minimized my full screen game. Ever since, when I switch workspace and switch back, my game is minimized. I am clueless how to undo it. I restarted my computer with no luck. Even on my other accounts it minimizes now...
