@MelBurslan, isn't /usr/local/bin already in the PATH?

@MelBurslan, Added the output of cron status above. I get command not found when i type mail and I get no output from /var/log/cron when run as sudo.

comment Real time cmd tool to show HDD space remaining
I currently use df -h, which gives me the required info as and when I type df -h. I was after something more live or real time, i.e. something which keeps updating the terminal automatically, so I don't have to type in a command to check.

@JodkaLemon, what is the actual command? When I try alsa -l, it just gives me usage instructions, and I see no -l in the instructions.

If I plug it into a computer running Linux, it works as a mouse and the speaker works, but I can't seem to dictate with it. It's not being recognized as a dictation device out of the box.

comment Memory problems when compressing and transferring a large number of small files (1TB in total)
@Celada, I'm not sure what command is being used. I right clicked the folder and clicked "create archive" and selected the .tar.gz option. The directory structure is deep, over 500,000 directories.

comment Memory problems when compressing and transferring a large number of small files (1TB in total)
@Celada, I'm having problems creating the .tar.gz file. I think it consumes 8GB figuring out which files will be compressed, so it doesn't even begin compressing.

@Kwaio, I have not tried the L option.

I can't install that plugin because CentOS 7 has an old version of firefox.

comment LXDE/LXQT distro with 5 years support?
I should have made my question clearer, which I have now. When I said "based on LXDE", I meant a distro which has LXDE pre installed. I understand it's not complicated to install LXDE, but I find it difficult to get a consistent theme with LXDE if installed later on into a disto which doesn't have it pre installed. Based on past releases, debian seems to support each release for roughly 3 years.

comment xfreerdp keeps disconnecting
@SHW, how do I use strace. Do I type strace in the terminal and then run the rds command?

comment xfreerdp keeps disconnecting
Yes, firewalls are in the path. I can't switch to remmina because it does not support TSG (Terminal Services Gateway for RDS).

@Ramesh, I just tried that, and it just seems to strip the video out and doesn't extract the clip I want.
