comment Linking c++ cpp files together using make or something else?
If your project uses CMake, then no, don't edit the Makefile directly, edit the CMakeLists.txt ... You should probably get the person responsible for that project to explain the build system to you.

comment Applying mouse settings on startup
/etc/init.d is for scripts that start and stop services on systems with SysV init (Upstart and systemd can be configured to run them, for compatibility). How do you change the sensitivity ? Unless you have a unusual setup, you are probably using xinput or xset to configure Xorg ? In that case the correct way is to change the global Xorg configuration : this affects everyone using the computer, or add the command to your .xprofile (or equivalent for your DM/DE) if it is just for your user account.

comment Linking c++ cpp files together using make or something else?
The C++ files must be compiled and the resulting object files linked with the rest of your project. make calls your compiler/linker according to the rules in the Makefile, so yes you should modify your Makefile if it doesn't currently compile your new files. Here is a question on Stackoverflow showing a simple case (there are more), and make manual.

comment How do I install sfx files in Debian
A sfx file is (usually) a self extracting archive. chmod is used here to make it executable, not to "install" it. Then you execute it to extract the content. And chmod is available on Debian too.

comment how to download and install Assasin's Creed 3 on linux Mint 15 with playonlinux?
Well, you can use wine directly, without using PlayOnLinux. There is no PlayOnLinux script for Assassin's Creed III. But appdb says it runs like garbage.

comment how to install any linux distribution from existing ubuntu
Directly from your installed distro is possible too but the exact way depends on the distribution. See Archlinux, Debian, Gentoo ... The general idea is create your partition, get a base system on it, chroot to finish installing and configuring things.

comment How to fork multiple processes from a same parent?
This is not a problem with fork but a simple logic problem. fork() returns 0 in the child. Trace on paper what is happening here, without the exit for the child, the loop run again, and fork is executed again. What you want to do is if the process is the child, you go out of the loop, else you continue looping and forking ...

comment How does `env X='() { (a)=>\' sh -c “echo date”` work?
@eyoung100 Not sure what you mean with "the nature of the way Linux was created". echo is "treated as a file"(name) only because of its position in the (bash) command. In echo date date is not treated as a command either. But in >echo date echo is the name of the file where the output of the date command is redirected.

comment Run command on startup for one user
"a shell without login" That's just the prompt, not "the shell", and you can make it look any way you want. You are logged into the shell, but that shell is sh not bash. You want to change the user 's shell‌​.

comment How to provide crt1.o and crti.o for LFS?
If "I should create virtual link of theme" mean that you created a symlink to a x86_64 library where a i686 library is expected, then no, you should never do that.
