    du -k --max-depth=1 | sort -n | cut -f2 | xargs -d '\n' du -sh

    [ubuntu] Re: Best hard-disk setup?

    Well said Bucky. I agree, I always have /home on a separate partition. It makes it so much easier to install a new version or another distro.

    [ubuntu] Re: How to copy files from USB drive

    USB drives usually mount to /media. So look there and see if there's a subdirectory called "usbdisk" or perhaps the disk label.

  10. Re: Combine 4 most useful Apt-Get commands into one!

    You can put aliases in .bashrc (you don't absolutely need a .bash_aliases file), although I like using the .bash_aliases file so I don't have to hunt thru my .bashrc file to find the aliases section.

    [ubuntu] Re: ssh stopped accepting keys

    I think the permissions on the ~/.ssh directory are supposed to be drwx------
    That's why you are getting the "bad ownership or modes" error.

    Change the permissions:
    chmod 0700 ~/.ssh

    NTFS doesn't support linux file permissions either - that's why you get the error.
