comment My cron job doesn't run
@roaima: It's different in that it actually runs every minute, rather than one minute after each hour as the cron job in the question would. * * * * * would also work; the /1 is not needed. But notify-send still won't work in that environment.

comment My cron job doesn't run
Your current cron job doesn't run every minute; it runs at one minute after the hour (00:01, 01:01, 02:01, etc.). But the real problem is that notify-send won't work from the restricted environment in which cron jobs run.

comment Do I have multiple python on my computer? and how to uninstall one of them?
Why remove python3.3? It's a newer version of the language -- and it typically doesn't provide an executable named "python" (it's named "python3"). It shouldn't conflict with your Python 2 installation, and removing it means you can't run any scripts that depend on Python 3. (You can almost think of Python 2 and Python 3 as two different languages.)

comment How to output only file names (with spaces) in ls -Al?
If you have a directory name "personal domain", how is the substring "personal" useful? And if you want to filter out the additional information other than the name, why are you using the -l option?

comment Will a shell script execute in Solaris? if not, which is the fastest way to make it compatible
@jlliagre: /bin/sh does exist on Solaris. Why would using it be a problem? Is it an older version of the shell?

Every UNIX-like system has a shell at /bin/sh. If you avoid features specific either to bash or to ksh, there shouldn't be a problem.

comment Why is number of open files limited in Linux?
@Lothar: Interesting. I wonder why the limits would differ. Given the fileno and fdopen functions I'd expect them to be nearly interchangeable.
