File manipulation from the command line

Posted 11-03-2015 at 07:12 AM by myklmar (Linux Gimux)

TEXT COMMANDS

To create file :: 'cat > (file name)'

When you are done, press Ctrl + D to exit the file and return to the prompt.

To verify file creation :: 'ls -l (file name)'

To view file :: 'cat (file name)'

Skype problem

Posted 04-20-2011 at 02:07 PM by myklmar (Linux Gimux)

It happened again!
Updated Skype, video wouldn't work and it made my voice sound like donald duck!

Have discovered that with some installations Skype video won't work.
So....Try adding this as the properties of a shortcut:

(System >Preferences >Keyboard Shortcuts)

env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l2convert.so skype

I've saved mine as Ctrl + Alt + S

No more problems..

Gnome-open

Posted 04-18-2011 at 12:56 PM by myklmar (Linux Gimux)

Open a text file in CLI

If you are working on the command line and you want an application to open a text file, do it
running a command.
However, this requires you to know the name of the application, which can be difficult to remember,(bad memory!) Especially if you don't know what application it was written in! But Linux has a solution for people like us. Its called gnome-open.

Gnome-open actually makes use of the gnome file handlers to decide what kind...

Excuses
If you want an excuse and can't think up a witty one, try this:

Type the following or copy and paste, into a terminal:

Code:
echo `telnet bofh.jeffballard.us 666 2>/dev/null` |grep --color -o "Your excuse is:.*$"
