Xmessage choice window in .xinitrc

Posted 04-10-2010 at 01:13 AM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

My Debian system is currently setup without a graphical login manager ( such as gdm or slim ) so the system boots to the console login screen. From here I enter and if I want to start Xorg manually with the 'startx' command.

My original window manager was Window Maker, a really lightweight wm based around some of the principals of the NextStep interface. Programs have 64x64 'tiles' to launch and manage them, and the whole window manager in my opinion is aesthetically pleasing....

Command to remove multiple files

When you just don't find the right command for the task...

#find . -name '*' | xargs rm
#find . -name "*.exe" | xargs rm

Thanks, all Linux People.

To Grub2 or Not To Grub2

Posted 04-09-2010 at 02:51 PM by Jaysonfw (Linux Exploits)

The worst feeling in the the world for a Linux user that is still a bit green, is the feeling you get when you reboot your machine, and instead of being greeted by your login screen, you see a GRUB>> prompt. 'What the heck am I suppose to do with that' I says to myself, as that sinking feeling settles in once again...

So there I was at 3:00am after spending hours trying to get GRUB2 to play nice.

Let me first say that I am not what anyone would call a Linux expert....
