This is my first Blog…..EVER…..I thought, what the heck, let’s give this thing a try.

Forget the 'cd' command !!!

Posted 12-15-2010 at 05:58 AM by thasuresh


$ shopt -s autocd

It's a Auto Directory changing command. We can change into any
directory without the use of 'cd' command.So we can utilize the time

thasu@tha-admin-da ~ $ shopt -s autocd
thasu@tha-admin-da ~ $ Desktop/
cd Desktop/
thasu@tha-admin-da ~/Desktop $ cd
thasu@tha-admin-da ~ $ /var/log/cups/
cd /var/log/cups/

If you plug in a usb hard disk with many partitions, all of the partitions will automatically mount. This behaviour may not be what you want so you can configure it as shown below.

If the volumes have labels the icons will be named accordingly, otherwise...
