@DKBose That is a zenity question which will take some time to answer but, thanks for pointing it out.
2:35 AM
@WinEunuuchs2Unix re. my being "blocked" by Twitter ... I found some consolation in this: youtube.com/watch?v=mpHiDsnqOSA
2:55 AM
@DKBose Twitter and Facebook are for the most part multiple-universes of artificial reality. Real questions and answers are here in SE with peer review. Real life is family and friends without the scripted reality often found in Twitter and Facebook. If you ask me you are better off without it. But if artificial reality makes you happy then all the power to you going there, just don't overdo it and remember to come out for a breath of fresh reality. 12 hours a day there will drain your soul.
@DKBose you never commented on my answer rewrite of your wmctrl script?
3:51 AM
@WinEunuuchs2Unix, I saw it. Now to digest it. Coding is not a second language for me. Anyway, someone came by and redid the title to align it with the body.

Q: How to read a file line by line and put them as a variable?

sarahim very new to linux and shell scripting. May I know how do you read a file line by line and pass each line as a variable? For example, lets say i have a file called abc.txt with these 2 lines as its content. Documents Slides And now I want to pass these 2 as variables D and S, whereb...

jaxx cryptoAccording to the press release, the deputy governor of France’s Central Bank, Banque de France made a comment over the recent approach towards cryptocurrencies. Beau remarked that Central banks are left with three options to address cryptocurrencies.

10:46 AM
@DKBose Someone changed your question title which breaks the first half of my answer. I'll have to rewrite my answer after work now.
@Rinzwind I got to be 3rd one to delete :)
Same guy we deleted posted another question which is too broad.
11:09 AM
@WinEunuuchs2Unix I support a rollback.
@Rinzwind The two other answers probably don't agree. I wonder what @DKBose thinks because it's his question.
11:43 AM
@WinEunuuchs2Unix I'm here now after breaking my head over Lubuntu 19.10. I already mentioned someone edited the title to kinda sorta fit the body. When I asked the question I didn't even know that one of the codes had to do with arrays. Hence the vagueness of the original title.
The question then took on a life of its own. But, comparing times wasn't what I had in mind. It was more like why use something that looks more complex when a simpler code (on the face of it) would do. Which is why I accepted plumo's answer. And then Steeldriver came along with an alternative which I'll still be studying for a while.
@WinEunuuchs2Unix re. "awk is overkill and cut is simpler", would cut handle the exclusion covered by awk ' !/-1/ ... Let me see. Lots to study here.
Q: Strange permission issue [media server]

dkd6I've been using my Linux machine (Ubuntu - 19.04 based) as a media server which has worked flawlessly so far - but suddenly I've been getting permission issues. I'm running the media server (currently Jellyfin, but this issue also persists with Plex - so I think the fault isn't in the server) of...

anybody an idea? askubuntu.com/questions/1181224/… I think it was as an error in libc-bin in xenial, because libaries from several packages are envolved

as of today the us army no longer uses floppy disks for launching nuclear missiles :D
@Rinzwind Source or it didn't happen!
Holy shirt balls

@nobody got duplicated somehow?
Q: /sbin/ldconfig.real: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5 is not a symbolic link

effemmeffeI keep getting this error: fmf@kodi:~$ sudo ldconfig /sbin/ldconfig.real: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5 is not a symbolic link Any idea on how to fix it? fmf@kodi:~$ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available.

Ask them what they did before this happened hahaha
OH, it seems to be the same guy

Q: menuconfig! failed

zannaI am trying to install drivers and when I try to run the command make menuconfig I get the error message that the "display is too small " "It must be at least 19 lines by 80 columns." And the terminal size is How to solve this?

Q: Change Ubuntu 18.04 Nautilus context menu "Open in Terminal" from "Gnome-terminal" to "Tilix"

Ferrari21Any idea on how may be changed context-menu from default gnome-terminal to tilix in Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver? Already tried renaming /usr/bin/gnome-terminal to /usr/bin/gnome-terminalbackup, then /usr/bin/tilix to /usr/bin/gnome-terminal, but without success, context-menu keeps running `gnome-...

Q: Cannot use live USB installation media on Dell XPS 13 7390 Developer Edition

chimeracoderI have a new Dell XPS 13 7390 Developer Edition. This is not the 2-in-1 machine; it's the regular laptop which comes with Ubuntu preinstalled. I am trying to install Debian instead of the OEM version of Ubuntu. I have created a USB drive for installing Debian Buster. I have tested the USB drive ...

Q: Why I can't login to GUI as normal user?

Emil DworniczakI use Linux mint 19.2. Today I try to log in to my account, but I can't. I try to login with terminal tty1 and try startx as a user, but it does not work. Now I'm logged in as root and startx - it works. However I want to use GUI also as a normal user, not only ROOT.

@DKBose Yes when testing on my system I was closing all windows. I missed the part how you wanted "sticky" windows to stay open. I've revised the answer thanks.
10:59 PM
I'm surprised SE allows a @Zanna and a zanna who are two different users.
@WinEunuuchs2Unix askubuntu.com/users
WHoops, sorry. That was supposed to link to the results of searching the users for "Bob"
There are loads of duplicate user names. It's only the user IDs that are unique.
There we go. 5 Mithrandirs! :)
11:27 PM
@WinEunuuchs2Unix, I mostly upvote everyone who answers my questions. bac0n's answer is another awesome one. steeldriver got the excluded windows part with the -1 bit. I've asked bac0n to explain the working of mapfile; that's another thing that's new to me.
As you point out, speed isn't really the criterion. Mostly, I guess its about whether a code will get tripped up by "edge" situations and a complex code maybe necessary to cover all the bases. There maybe other codes written that are unintentionally bulky. Hence my original question. For more, please see the link at the start of my answer here.
@terdon Yes but imagine my surprise seeing zanna had reputation points of 1 :P
@DKBose I too like to upvote people who answer my questions. It feels good they participate. Your linked answer is a nice one, I upvoted it too! A lot of programming comes down to personal preferences and developing a style you like. After developing a style just remember to stick to it to make future revisions easier. Didn't word that properly I guess... Rough week!
@WinEunuuchs2Unix Ha! Yes, that would be scary :)
Hey sorry for talking about TL and mods last couple of days. It was nothing personal to any of you guys you're all great. I was sort of swept away with politics in the real world that compounded the issue here with new CoC and whatnot soap-opera.
You can be a Paranoid Panda or a Festive @Fabby and I don't discriminate I treat everyone equally by not judging their real life.
11:42 PM
@WinEunuuchs2Unix Don't worry, everyone has been talking about what's going on.
Yes but we were talking about "mods" without acknowledging the fact yourself and the others are mods and that it was not directed at you and the other AU mods in anyway. The mods in question are all people (persona's?) I've never encountered before. I've never seen any pronoun problems in AU. I hate to say it but I didn't even know what a pronoun was until this CoC stuff came up and I had to google it. I always thought people were nouns.
11:57 PM
@WinEunuuchs2Unix Don't worry, I don't think any of us took it personally :)
