Sorry about the double edit, I wanted to make the images smaller but then they were unreadable.

comment How and when is keyboard data encoded from keyboard to application?
Your main question should be more than adequately answered by the dupe (let me know if it isn't). Your secondary question should be asked separately but we can only answer for Linux and OSX here. I suggest you ask it on Super User instead.

comment All computers in my department network are refusing to let a single user log in
Please edit your question and i) include the version of Ubuntu you're using; ii) tell us what happens if you try to login from the command line iii) tell us what happens if you log in and try to switch to that user using su; iv) look at your error logs, especially ~baduser/.xsession-errors; v) make sure the user's $HOME directory exists. If it does, make a backup (rename it), then re-create it empty and try logging in again.

comment Searching and replacing string using sed
@Costas stop posting answers as comments! This is at least the 4th time I have had to ask you not to do this (1st, 2nd, 3rd). Why do you insist on ignoring me?

comment Is there ever a good reason to run sudo su?
@fluffy that's interesting. Where these systems with no active root account? Couldn't you just run su alone? I was running RH-based systems until around 2006 and had never seen sudo in the 6 or 7 years I'd been using Linux before that.

comment Is there ever a good reason to run sudo su?
I don't understand what you mean with this. Are you giving a reason why running sudo su is a good idea here? As far as I can tell, you're just listing the files shown in the FILES section of the su man page. What does that have to do with running sudo su instead of sudo -i? If you've configured su specially, why not just run it directly?

Please edit your question and show us an example of your input files and an example of your desired output files. How are the columns defined? Commas? Spaces? Tabs?

comment How can I make a script to count up by fives?
@mikeserv first off, tone it down. Stop with the characterizations . There's no need to be rude. Second, my point is that the different tools, such as grep, that are available by default differ depending on the OS. Therefore, one should always mention the target OS.

comment Is there ever a good reason to run sudo su?
Ah, so before 2004 there was actually a reason to run sudo su then? At the time I was using distros without sudo and active root accounts so I don't know. That might explain the prevalence of the sudo su meme in the Ubuntu world.
