Today I Learned...
Fuddster posted a topic in Bruno's All Things LinuxI used the backup software Back In Time to back up my /home folder during my recent openSUSE reinstall. Somehow I missed a setting, I still don't know which one, that allowed BIT to copy/restore more copies of my files with ".backup.fulldate" appended to each file. OVER 250,000 OF THEM! I use the find command often, so I opened a terminal and fired it up. To make sure my search pattern worked, I sent the results to a text file and gave it a quick look. And Today I Learned that the find command has a -delete switch that made getting rid of those files a snap! The full command went something like find /home/fuddster/ -name "*.backup.20180721" -delete Even with commands you use all the time, there's always something else you can learn about them. What's your favorite AHA! moment like that?
abarbarian posted a topic in Bruno's All Things LinuxMain site http://fishshell.com/ There is a 4bit terminal color scheme designer available on-line. http://ciembor.github.io/4bit/ However you can always use the fish_config command which I used as I could not seem to get the hang of the above. The web interface allows you to view your functions, variables and history, and to make changes to your prompt and color configuration. fish_config starts a local web server and then opens a web browser window; when you have finished, close the browser window and then press the Enter key to terminate the configuration session. There is excellent documentation on the main site covering most if not all the main parts of fish. Here are a few ways folk have personalised fish, http://geraldkaszuba...ing-fish-shell/ https://github.com/c.../tomorrow-theme A whole host of themes here, just click on a theme to view it. https://github.com/b...e/master/themes You can use fish in vi mode with this script, https://github.com/D...er/vi-mode.fish Here are a couple of shots of the web based fish_config.You get a great deal of information from the various tabs which is very helpful. I still have to figure out how to set FireFox as the default web browser though. The program started NetSurf which would not open up the web page correctly so I copy and pasted the addy into FF and this worked so not a big handicap. A few shots of me trying out fish.The fish alternative to "alias" which is included but "function" is preferred.Below you can see me trying to create one.As I do not really know what I am doing it took me a couple of tries to get right. Looking at other folks examples always helps me in cases like this though it can be a little like wading through two feet of glue. I'm quite liking fishing and think I may keep it as my shell.Now all I need to figure out is how to get a black background for the terminal and some decent fonts and how to resize the terminal window. An as I am morphing into a geek I am taking notes aswell.
