comment Recommended file system for cloning AUR-mirror?
Why exactly do you wish to keep an AUR mirror with you locally? The AUR is extremely large, and it is highly unlikely that you will use even 1% of the packages listed on it. I'm assuming that you have some misunderstanding of what the AUR is and how it works.

comment Can i capture and send GET requests with wget?
What exactly are you trying to do? Wget does not "capture" network packets at all. If you want a look at the response to a GET request, sure.

If you had bothered to read the answers to that question, you'd have realized why you're in the same position and how to resolve your problem.

comment Bash: Syntax Error on @()
Damn! I'm enabling extglob, but after the function is defined. Once I fixed the order, it works! I never came across this issue in the past, maybe all the other systems were setting extglob globally. Thanks a bunch!

comment Bash: Syntax Error on @()
No, I checked that multiple times. I think you found 1 extra paren which is a part of the switch-case syntax. This function currently works for me on Arch Linux, too.

comment How should I combine many compressed files into one archive?
Have you tried scripting it, so that you uncompress one file, add all the files to a given archive and then move to the next?

comment Vim Error E138: Can't write viminfo file $HOME/.viminfo!
What are the permissions on the viminfo file? What is the output of ls -la .vininf*?

comment How to delete number of lines from file repetitively
How does sort and uniq help in this case? Your solution would fail on the given example itself. Since the output is expected to be 4,5,5, however, uniq would eliminate the second 5.

comment Installing iPython3 Fedora 20
If the package in your distribution has not been updated to the latest version, it is probably because the updated version has some problems. Unless you wish to compile from sources and maintain it on your own, do not try to update your ipython package through any other means.

comment What is difference between GTK and QT applications?
While I will agree with you about the history and etymology of GTK, this does not implicitly imply that GNU/Linux is GTK oriented. In fact the opposite is true and is confirmed by your statements. GTK was designed for linux, not the other way around. I'd defend my thesis stating that Linux as a kernel and GNU/Linux as an operating system are agnostic towards any GUI Toolkit. GTK is often seen in the wild more than Qt because of Ubuntu's heavy dependence on it. Also the fact that it is lighter on system resources helps.

comment How to set conkys window width?
You don't need to reboot your machine to see updates to conky configs. In fact, conky seems to use inotify to ensure that an edited configuration file is automatically loaded and the updated conky displayed.

comment What is difference between GTK and QT applications?
I would be extremely interested to know how you come to the conclusuion that Linux is more GTK oriented? Linux, typically implies only the Linux kernel which in general has no bias towards either of the toolkits, since it is an OS kernel, not a GUI userspace program. If you meant to imply GNU/Linux as an operating system, I'd still dispute your claim. To say that GNU/Linux is more GTK oriented because Ubuntu is the most popular distro is like saying Christiano Ronaldo is the best sportsman because football is the most played game in the world. (I'd dispute that too)

comment Postponing ntpd
Okay so your OS uses SysV. Could please first state what OS you're using? That might be quite helpful in diagnosing things.

This seems to me like some implementation bug, maybe? I'd say get your backup tapes out.

comment Kali tools on Ubuntu
Why can't you simply install them all using apt-get? You seem to know all the names, so where's the problem?

I had forgotten to add that! Edited answer to reflect the example. When I have a little more time on my hands, I'll explain how the ordering works too.

comment make ls display current date and time
That's require some conditional logic inside a PS1 line. I'd rather not have that.
