Re: Are you a cook?

I don't think of myself as being much of a cook, but in my younger days I worked as a cook for several years, at a few different restaurants, and I've still got a few tricks up my sleeve. These days I like to keep things simple, and I don't like to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. But I live alon...

Re: What Linux Needs To Do To Reach The Masses.

I'd rather not worry about any of this. Let people use Linux if they want to and let Linux keep its diversity.

Tells me everything I need to know, thanks. Not that I was interested anyway. I'm not sure why the OP is pushing this.

Re: OSDisc.com Has Closed

Wow. OSDisc was a great resource for me back when I was on dial-up, and even for a few years after. My first Mepis discs came from them. And what's kinda sad for me is that I was recently doing some house-cleaning and decided to get rid of my old Linux CDs and DVDs, including several that I purchase...

Re: Prompt at the back.

This is all a matter of taste so whatever the consensus is fine by me. Yeah, and the default might not matter so much. Any Linux installation I do, one of the first things I do post-install is drop a line in .bashrc for the prompt. Lol, it wasn't something I knew how to do when I was a newbie, of c...

Re: Prompt at the back.

I'm another one who dislikes that default MX prompt. I use a rather simple one; here's the code from my .bashrc file:

Code: Select all

PS1='\[\e[1;32m\]\u[\w]\\$ \[\e[0m\]'
It's really just username, pwd, dollar sign. All on one line, of course.
