Elected moderator on Unix & Linux. Feel free to @ping me in chat if there's anything I can help you with.

I've been using Linux since the late '90s and have gone through a variety of distributions. At one time or another, I've been a user of Mandrake, SuSe, openSuSe, Fedora, RedHat, Ubuntu, Mint, Arch and for the past few years Linux Mint Debian Edition (which is basically Debian testing but more green).

My Linux expertise, if I can grace it with such a lofty title, is mostly on manipulating text and regular expressions since that represents a large chunk of my daily work.

comment How to copy files from the folder without the folder itself
@pushandpop well, yes. That's the target you had in your question so I assumed it was a directory. You need to create the target before attempting to copy files into it.

comment Official [beginner friendly distro] reference for actual beginners
I don't see how any information could be "official". There is no official body that governs the various distributions. Are you looking for something like this: help.ubuntu.com/stable/ubuntu-help/index.html ?

revised How can I pass the success (or failiure) of a command to a variable?
I removed the script since you are simply showing the classic approach and it does not help in understanding the question.

Is this still a problem? Could you add the output of route -n as requested by @Kiwy?

comment How do I boot into kali?
Please edit your question and explain exactly how you "reinstalled grub". We need to see the commands you ran. Where dod you install it? On which hard drive? How many hard drives do you have?

Hi and welcome to the site. We need more details to be able to help you. What exactly do you mean by "unlock your session"? Are you trying to log in? Do you have the password? Do you want to change it? What are your symptoms?

I am accepting this since the bug has since disappeared. Some update or other must have fixed it.
