comment Convert all non-JPG images to JPGs
@user8547: yes, that should work. I don't think convert will modify in place, but you can add a line right after the convert line rm ${FILENAME}, which will delete the original file.

comment Convert all non-JPG images to JPGs
@don_crissti: but the man page shipped with Debian does. So this feature still needs to spread it seems ... or the man page is broken. Documentation is not valued as much as it used to be.

comment Convert all non-JPG images to JPGs
@user8547: no, you forgot the * before the . and a ; after FILENAME and another ; after jpg. The newlines matter. Maybe your shell's manual can help you with these details ...

comment Convert all non-JPG images to JPGs
@user8547: if you are specifically looking to convert just all bmp and png images, you can use the while loop provided above, but replace ls | grep -v jpg$ with echo *.{bmp,png}. Within that echo statement, you can even complement the ,-separated list of extentions to include other formats as well.

@user8547: no, it won't. You need to iterate over all filenames, you cant just supply them all to mogrify.

comment Is it possible to run vlc as root?
If you actually did install vlc that way ... have you just tried running vlc as root? Why doesn't it work? What does happen when you try? What did you expect to go differently?

comment Remote Xfce session in a separate console?
@Vasilly.Prokopyev: oh ... that's what you meant. Well, when setting up the ssh connection, you can add -L177:127.0.01:177 and -R6001:127.0.0.1:6001 to the ssh call, to make this work over SSH. However, in that scenario you could just install x2goserver on your desktop pc and x2goclient on your netbook. I do believe the client can be full screen.

comment Why is ping much faster when using -f
I don't understand this answer. ryekayo's average rtt is higher when using the -f option. So 1. the OP's claim can't be reproduced, 2. the excerpts from the man page don't give the slightest hint at which measurement is more accurate and 3. what's a "fair" result anyways?
