    Re: bulk directory rename

    What version of Thunar are you using ? The bulk-rename in Thunar 1.6.15 on XUbuntu 18.04 will rename directories, at least it does for me if I select the directories (ctrl-s, enter '*[1]' into the...

  8. Re: customize keybaord layout (also ctrl key combos)

    If I were you I'd leave the system files alone because you'd have to redo your modifications whenever an update to the system files happens. There is a command to remap keys called xmodmap (this is...

    [SOLVED] Re: audio-recorder

    Yes, it will. The 64 bit extension to the x86 architecture is called amd64 because both Intel and AMD had different ways of expanding x86. The Intel way of doing this (Itanium) failed in the market,...

    [UbuntuGnome] Re: 20.04 Lack of space on Root

    As a first step I'd do


    sudo du --max-depth=1 --total --one-file-system /

    and then I'd drill down into the directories which take the most space.

    If the total from the first 'du' only shows...

    There are three ways I understand this part of the explanation:

    Other programs can call the shell to do some of the things it is good at, like setting up pipes for processing jobs made up of...
  13. Re: Unable to play podcast media in various browsers (Chrome, Firefox) [Ubuntu 20.10]

    I don't think I could have bypassed a codec issue, because I opened the stream in a new tab in the browser. If the browser couldn't open the stream from the page, why should it be able to open it...

  15. [SOLVED] Re: grep wont search multiple patterns sepperated by a newline

    It's not a function of grep, grep isn't running yet. It's the shell (or probably the readline library that the shell uses for text entry) that recognizes the odd number of quotes as a sign that...

    From 'man bash', section "QUOTING":

    So, yes, the '$' makes the bash expand '\n' to a newline-character. (Don't know how often I've read that page over the years and never noticed this construct...

  18. [SOLVED] Re: grep wont search multiple patterns sepperated by a newline

    That only works for "grep -F", which will search for fixed strings (so the 'patterns' are not regular expressions). Example:


    ls -l|grep -F 'lrwx
    public
    Bilder'

    which - if executed in my...
