DL Community Email:

hi,

many thanks for your great podcast. It is a trusted companion when looking at the tail lights of the car in front of me, every day when I drive to work.

My question may be stupid, but Google doesn’t give me a direct answer to following question:

I want to reinstall my Linux Mint. When I make a backup of all my files (from /home) onto eg. a EXT4 USB drive (copy/paste), then I nuke the Mint install and reinstall from scratch,

when I then restore the backed up /home data files, what happens with the rights on the file? (ownership & file permissions)

Are they being brought across from the original install, or are they set correctly for the new install?

Are there backup tools which make sure that file permissions are set correctly when restored on a new system?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Tips & Tricks:
Using ‘cp’ to copy files in Linux is a very convenient tool. However, knowing these switches can save you from making mistakes:
-i : Confirm before overwriting
-n : No overwriting
-b : Overwriting with backup
-r : Recursive copying
-u : Overwrite if the target file is old or doesn’t exist

Ex: $ cp -b sourcedirectory targetdirectory will overwrite the file if it exists but creates a backup file first.

Tips & Tricks:
Head and Tail Commands in the Terminal
When you’re looking through files sometimes you just need to see the first or last lines of the document to see if it’s the one you need or get the info you want. The ‘head’ and ‘tail’ command will do just that.

‘head’ grabs the first lines of a file and ‘tail’ displays the last lines.

As an example you could type head test.txt to get the first 10 lines.
Or use the switch -n followed by a number to print any number of lines. Example: head -n 15 test.txt will give you 15 beginning lines.

Tail does the same thing but starting from the bottom.

Rank #11: Destination Linux EP81 – Canonical Fanboys

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome to Episode 81 of Destination Linux

DL Email

Hey, Destination Linux crew,

I love the show, but one thing greatly troubles me…

Ryan “CLAIMS” his car ‘runs linux’, but I am thinking he means that his car ‘boots’ linux.   I refuse to believe these outrageous claims until I see a logo of some sort that Ryan has produced ACTUALLY USING this ‘linux’ on his car.  That’s right. I’m calling ‘bogus’ on this, until Ryan offers proof-positive that his car RUNS linux by producing something with inkscape or gimp USING HIS CAR.

I admit, I was skeptical when he professes his love for linux, but uses an iPhone to make phone calls. (Android, as google-fied as it may be, is certainly closer to the linux family than iOS)

Seriously, though. Thank you for the show each week! I don’t miss an episode, and, like Ryan, I also work telecom… It’s a welcome relief to hear the friendly linux-centric banter while I go about my I&R (install and repair) business day.

PS: I’m not sure if Michael knew this, but KDE is SO customizable,  I’ve even found an option that you can ‘like it’ or ‘not like it’ in the settings!!!

Thanks,

-Andy

> Since I am a KDE Plasma user and I do a lot in the web when it comes to researching and I think you should give KDE Falkon a try. It is not feature rich and lacks the Plasma Integration and ability to access DRM encumbered sources but outside of that, it has much less memory usage than Chrome or Firefox. I have been using it for nearly everything as of late. It might be wroth a try.

Tips & Tricks:
Check diskspace with df command. The most popular and generically popular version is to add the -h switch to the end for human readable format. This will let you know the diskspace used and available across your system or servers. It’s easy to remeber and faster than a GUI.

Tips & Tricks:
If you’re doing some troubleshooting or perhaps just opened a bug report and need to provide the latest kernel information of your machine, this tip should help you out.

Typing $ uname -a will provide you all the details for your linux version and kernel along with release date.

For Radeon VII users having the latest Mesa is going to be important so we have a command for that as well – $ glxinfo | grep “OpenGL version”

Hey I really like the way you had your guest Co-Host, both entertaining and informative.

I really liked your interview with Martin Wimpress especially just before getting to meet him at Linuxfest Northwest! Great guy from a rural area like myself.

So I have a problem I thought I’d ask you about?

Hey has anyone else seen this: In Clementine the Spotify plugin no longer works correctly. I used to be able to access saved music and playlists. But now I can’t see my spotify playlists. It will however play an old saved Clementine playlist from before things broke.

Thanks guys, keep up the great work!

Our Picks for DL176

Software Spotlight:

Weather Apps because geeks don’t go outside it’s important we have a good weather indicator on our computers. Here are a few to check out:

  • GNOME Weather:
    • Backend: libgweather
    • Forecast Length: 5-day
    • Hourly conditions: Yes
    • Location Search: Yes
    • Auto-location: Yes
  • Meteo
    • Backend: OpenWeatherMap
    • Forecast Length: 5-day
    • Hourly conditions: Yes
    • Location Search: Yes
    • Auto-location: Yes
  • Or from the Terminal like a real geek using

Tips & Tricks:

Hello all,

First time listener, I caught your most recent podcast regarding, and heard you mentioning little useful terminal command. Ctrl+L is an interesting one I’ve never heard before. Much like the others, I don’t see myself needing to hide my terminal lol, but my haste tends to cause me to typo ‘clear’ so that’s useful.

You also mentioned Ctrl+U and I actually use that a lot, but mostly with Ctrl+Y which returns the previous line that disappeared with Ctrl+U.

This can be useful for, if example, you’re about to run a series of commands on a target directory, and already wrote out the command. Instead of typing the absolute path each time, you can Ctrl+U after you’ve already typed out the command, change to target directory, and then press Ctrl+Y to return the typed out command.

It’s a small thing, but there are plenty of times where this allows you to complete a missed step without having to clear what you wrote.

I enjoy your podcast, and will probably keep listening!

  • Community Feedback
    • Universal App Formats are just not ready yet – [Krzysztof]
  • ProtonMail writes an article about the Privacy Issues they see with the Zoom.us video conferencing software
  • Front Page Linux: Announcement & Launch
    • Front Page Linux (FPL) is a News, Tutorials, Articles & Videos website brought to you by the Destination Linux Network.
    • FPL’s mission is to provide a one-stop shop for written media for Linux & Open Source content on the web. FPL is also very different in the structure because FPL works with the Open Source philosophy in that anyone in the community can contribute to the content of the site. If you’re interested in contributing to FPL then please check out the FPL section on the DLN Discourse Forum.
  • Software Spotlight:
    • SoX – the “swiss army knife of sound processing programs”. SoX is a command line utility that can convert various formats of computer audio files in to other formats. It can also apply various effects to these sound files, and, as an added bonus, SoX can play and record audio files on most platforms. So if you need to combine audio, resample, extract portions of audio or just about anything else – SoX is a progream for you to check out.
  • Tips & Tricks:
    • KDE Plasma’s Global Shortcut for Muting a Microphone
  • Gaming on Linux
    • Trailer Trashers
      • One of the great aspects of gaming is it can give you a break from reality and even offer some silly ridiculous fun. That’s where games like ‘Trailer Trashers’ comes in.
      • Now this game even though it has some cartoon-ish like graphics is mature theme with some of the cartoon violence so don’t play it with your kids. However, it’s a ridiculous premise with lots of fast paced actions to enjoy with your adult friends.
