Milestone in progress.

Posted 09-25-2013 at 06:40 PM by ReaperX7

Today I successfully installed Midori Browser into Xfce and have Xfce set as my default desktop environment using startx. This for me is a huge milestone because now I can graphically surf the web and work on LFS equally.

However, I have hit a snag with Parole Media Player. It doesn't work, so if anyone can help me with the bug, please do as I have a post in the LFS section regarding it.

If all things proceed as planned, I aim to have a few more packages added soon...

Raspberry Pi temperature logger written in Python

Posted 09-24-2013 at 04:45 PM by Pyplate

I wrote a Python script to read temperatures from a DS18B20 and log the temperatures in an SQLite database. I used Google charts to display data from the database in a chart on a web page. You can see how I set this up here: http://raspberrywebserver.com/cgiscr...rature-logger/

MeX 13.10 64 bit Linux - for those who are impatient...

Posted 09-21-2013 at 05:42 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

The system is a remaster of upcoming Ubuntu 13.10 - codenamed "Saucy Salamander", not yet released. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity 7.1 (Ubuntu). I have replaced Unity with KDE 4.11.1, Gnome 3.8.4, Gnome Fallback (Classic) 3.8.4 and Razor-qt 0.5.2. Everyone can on the spot (during live operation) compare the different four Desktop Environments. The system language is ENGLISH.

Program content etc
Among many other programs LibreOffice, Thunderbird,...

Append something to the top of a file, in bash, without a temporary file

Posted 09-21-2013 at 03:04 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 09-21-2013 at 03:06 PM by the dsc

Using echo "something" >> extantfile.wtv may be handy way to add something to a file, but it will only add to the end.

The closest thing one would more likely imagine to add something at the top would be something like combining echo/whatever and a cat into a temporary file, and then moving it into the old file. Or maybe something crazy with tac and rev.

But it's possible to skip the temporary file:

echo -e "$(grep -A 1 patternX source-of-bit-to-append)\n$(cat...
