comment How to display images in OSX terminal
I use apt-get and these URLs: http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/. If you are using Mac, or Microsoft, then you have to do it the hard way (does mac have a package manager?)

Please only paste the exact code that you have tested. Having us look at the wrong code wastes our time.

comment Where is the recommended place to install applications that are not from apt?
It is bad practise to put stuff in /usr/bin. /usr/local is another place that I think is reserved. I don't know the difference between /usr/local and /opt. On my system, /opt has stuff arranged by package, and /usr/local I use for stuff that likes to spread it self out in to bin, libs etc.

comment Adding on to output file name in a script
Tell us, clearly, what the script will do: What are its inputs?, what are its outputs? (In your case inputs and outputs, that are relevant, may only be command line arguments, and file-names). Then show us what you have tried, and tell us what happened.

comment Freeze slide on external display (projecter), when using OpenOffice, and use laptop to do other (secret) thing
@MelBurslan can you elaborate, as not use if you have thought of something that I have not. Note that OpenOffice takes over both displays (when in extended mode) when presenting, one for audience, and is a presenter console.

@calada I can press esc so that OpenOffice stops presenting, or I can not use computer for another task.

comment Shell program which reads line and output lines with the line numbers
The input has a blank line, the output has a blank line in the same place. All is good.

comment Different characters for some keyboard keys
Why the downvote, this is a good question, but the terminology is all mixed up (however remap is exactly the correct word for what they need to do).

comment Different characters for some keyboard keys
It is not an OS issue, you have just got US keyboard layout set. MS-Windows dose the same, if you do not ask for something different.

comment Different characters for some keyboard keys
That is not a short-cut, that is the long way around, there is no short cut to typing. A keyboard-short-cut, is a key combination that circumvents a load of tedious mouse clicking.
