comment Desktop Fails with “Oh no! Something has gone wrong.”
Sounds like a bug. Report it? (As a temporary workaround, try a plain window manager like twm.)

comment How can I copy a file in a bash script and rename it while copying and place it in the same directory
Maybe it's just me, but I find the wording really confusing here. Why are mv and cp insufficient? Could we have an example?

comment Bash script for looping through files
I'm confused which one of the mentioned things this question is actually about. What do you mean by "declare a variable"? Would the file "masked-gentleman.zip" be selected by your criteria?

comment GitLab install: psql error “role ”git“ does not exist”
I think the role "git" does not exist message is referring to a PSQL role, not a system user or group. Are you sure you did all of step 4?

comment How to scroll in a terminal using keyboard?
I think this is too broad. As mentioned, scrolling is a terminal emulator feature, not a shell feature. There are really very many terminal emulators many of which implement scrolling in different ways, or not at all.

comment Fancontrol HP laptop /usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules in
The output seems to be saying that you're out of luck. It also mentions "Note that many motherboards do not have pwm circuitry installed, even if your sensor chip supports pwm." What sort of answer are you expecting?

comment I've moved my root directory accidentally to a folder, can't figure out how to move it back using busybox
Wait, what exactly did you do? Did you move your root folder (/) or your root user's home directory (/root/)? What command exactly is giving you "permission denied"?

Are you looking for a rolling-release model or just one that makes big but easy releases? (As in what specifically does "easy" mean for you?)
