Crunchbang Linux Install Vaio Pro 13

Posted 11-05-2013 at 01:00 AM by Rearden888

Got this laptop new to replace an older Lenovo Thinkpad X220. Mine is the Core i7 4500U with a 256 GB hard drive, but nothing here should be different in other versions besides drive partition sizes. It was kind of a bear to install, so I thought I'd post a write up here that might be useful to others.

ExTiX 13 64 bit version 131031 is based on Ubuntu 13.10 released on October 17, 2013. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). After removing Unity I have installed Gnome 3.10 and Gnome Classic 3.10 (a perfect replacement for Cinnamon). The system language is English.

This may be possible using a single command but a very small and simple script though.Here we are deleting last 3 lines from a file.

#!/bin/bash
#Assign the number of lines to be deleted to variable "a"
a=3
i=1
while [ $i -le $a ]
do
sed -i '$d' file
i=$(($i + 1))
done
