comment How to put the “yes” program into the background?
Give me ssh access to your PC and I'll test it out for ya. No, seriously, it's hard to tell. What kind of terminal and system are you at?

comment How to put the “yes” program into the background?
@dziadek1990 yes & (running yes in the background) won't make it end or not output to the current terminal ad infinitum. That's the expected behavior. What are you trying to achieve?

comment Remount squashfs root filessytem read-write
Not sure if you'll be able to remount a squashfs, but you can give it a shot (some filesystems could be intrinsically read-only).

comment rsync partial LVM volume to Remote Directory
What do you mean, inacccessible? Mount it and rsync the files. It'll be much more efficient than rsyncing a whole block device with all its empty space.

comment How can I automate window tiling with a custom width? (Cinnamon)
You probably won't be able to tile the window using either wmctrl or xdotool. The reason is, muffin (the cinamon window manager) uses a nonstandard state for that (_NET_WM_STATE_TILED) as you can learn from xprop output. I don't think you can get at that reasonably efficiently from a currently existing higher level tool. You'd need to hack at muffin's C code.

comment Why is nullglob not default?
Somebody once made a bad choice that turned into "we've always done it this way". A very ubiquitous phenomenon (not only) in the software world.

comment Unattended Linux Mint Install
You could do one manual installation, make an image, and then just clone the image and run a provisioner (e.g., a shell script).
