    mass convert flac / ape / wv + cue to fdk with one command???

    Does astralinux use libav instead of ffmpeg? If so, install libav and avtools and then use the avconv command instead. Libav is a fork of the ffmpeg project. And avconv is equivalent to the actual ffmpeg tool. Otherwise, if that is not available - perhaps consider building and installing...

    Vim basics and more

    Also on the command-mode cursor movement front there are f and F. f will move the cursor forward to a particular character on the line. F will move the cursor backwards to a particular character on the line. e.g. Hitting the keys: fc - Would move the cursor forward to the next lowercase c...

    Find and move filles with specific extensions

    So you mean you want to move all images from several different devices and move them to a separate destination for each device? If so, it would probably be best to write a script and call the find command once per device and specify a separate search directory and destination directory for each...

    syntax error near unexpected token ('

    It's because you have a space in your file-name. You need to escape the space by pre-pending it with a backslash character. Just like you did with the brackets around the 4. E.g. mv video\ \(4\).mp4 /path/to/destination/

    Vim basics and more

    On the movement front, in command mode you also have: ctrl-u and ctrl-d which will scroll up/down half a page at a time. And ctrl-e and ctrl-y which will scroll up/down one line at a time without moving the cursor. This one is good if you have the cursor at the top, or bottom of the screen...

    Find and move filles with specific extensions

    Oh hello! @dimzev - Stan's got most of the answer mapped out there for you. To finish things up - If you're searching for several different file-types using the OR operator (-o) and you want to apply some action using -exec, or -execdir - you should enclose the statements containing the regexes...

    Clear steps to make an .sh file executable

    OK, as everybody has said - using chmod +x will make the script executable. After making it executable you can run it using an absolute path: /path/to/myscript.sh Where /path/to/ - is the fully qualified path to the executable and myscript.sh is the name of the script. Or you could use a...

    Just for fun - Linux Jokes and Memes

    Me every time I try to learn emacs: DISCLAIMER: This is a joke in a meme thread. Not to be taken seriously! I respect everybody's choice of editor. Emacs is a great operating system.... I mean text editor! XD

    And when it comes to applying patches, the "Hacking" section of the suckless.org website describes how to apply patches depending on whether you got the sources from a tarball, or via git: https://suckless.org/hacking/

    Music player for XFCE

    I currently use cmus - a terminal based player for playing all of my digital music. Extremely low resource usage. But cmus doesn't support CD playback. So I use asunder for ripping tracks from CD and then add it to cmus's library and play via cmus.

    The OP has privately messaged me - he has solved his problem. The solution is to add some code to his .xsessionrc to start slstatus before dwm is started.
  12. JasKinasis


    OK, just to make sure I'm understanding you correctly: When you start your dwm session, you are starting slstatus manually via dmenu. But you want slstatus to run automatically when you log in? Is this correct?

    Looking for an exhaustive comprehensive Linux and/or Linux server Administration book.

    I'd recommend this book: https://www.amazon.com/Pro-Linux-System-Administration-Business-ebook/dp/B06XNT8HNM This is the updated 2nd edition of the book that was released in 2017. I own a copy of the first edition of the book, which is pretty outdated now. But it is a really comprehensive and...

    How Do I Compile VLC? I Keep Having Trouble With Qt.

    Hmmm, not sure what's going on here! I'm getting the same error messages about the qt5 quick library not being installed. But it definitely is installed.... Really not sure what to suggest here offhand!

    How Do I Compile VLC? I Keep Having Trouble With Qt.

    I've just installed the build-pre-requisites using the apt build-dep command in my post. That definitely installed the qt5 libraries that you said you were getting errors about. So running that should have got all of the pre-requisites. I'm just about to download the source code for vlc now...

    How Do I Compile VLC? I Keep Having Trouble With Qt.

    If I get a chance later, I'll try installing the pre-requisites and building vlc from source on my Debian Testing laptop. See if I can work out what's what!

    How Do I Compile VLC? I Keep Having Trouble With Qt.

    That's very strange. The QT5 development libraries are all available in the repos. And if you've installed all of the available QT5 development libraries, you should have them there already. I don't see why VLC's configure scripts are unable to find the QT libraries.... Very odd.... Perhaps...

    Did you run the bootstrapping script before attempting to run the configure script? As specified here: https://wiki.videolan.org/UnixCompile/
