- Hosted by Spencer Krum
- From Minnesota Linux Desktop User Group
Our first meetup in a while! 2019 Year of Linux on the Desktop!
We’ll do show-and-tell style ‘what can you do with Linux’ as well as tips and tricks for Linux on the Desktop. I’m working on locking in a more formal presentation but haven’t confirmed it yet!
git-sh-prompt - bash/zsh git prompt support [github]
We talked about a number of tricks, but not all were recorded
# Disable shell history from being saved unset HISTFILE # Problem 1: Remove execute capability from file which removes most obvious way # to change execute bit on file. sudo chmod -x "$(which chmod)" # Solution 1: Use 'install' to set mode properties sudo install -m 755 -T '/bin/chmod' '/tmp/chmod' sudo /tmp/chmod +x '/bin/chmod'
