comment Standard convention installation folder for GitEye on Linux and how to start it
Yes, /opt is the more usual place if everything must be in one directory. /usr/local is usually for software that respects the bin lib share organisation of files.

comment Override a few keycodes with XKB
They come from the setxkbmap -print, they are files from /usr/share/X11/xkb/. I think you have to give a whole keymap to xkbcomp but I could be wrong ...

comment Standard convention installation folder for GitEye on Linux and how to start it
I remember answering a similar question here. For the symlink, it would be /usr/local/bin or /opt/bin (which are not necessarily in the default path, this depends on the distribution).

comment 'Pass' password manager - does it require public key?
@Costas the "master-pass" is the passphrase of your gpg key. That's why you only have to input it when you retrieve the password, not when you store it.

comment 'Pass' password manager - does it require public key?
I think it can only use a pair of keys. Why would you prefer symmetric encryption ?

comment Restore sudo privileges
First, a directory owned by your regular user in /usr/bin is a really weird idea... For the current problem, the files in /usr/bin should be owned by root, but a dozen or so have also lost their setuid bit like sudo. The simplest would be to use the package manager. I'm finding apt-get --reinstall install but there may be something more fine-grained ...

comment Restore sudo privileges
This will only fix sudo. If the OP was trying to change permission of a directory, there is certainly more to fix.

comment Restore sudo privileges
It's not your sudo privilege. Depending on the command you ran, you broke part or all of the ownership/permissions of your system files. What command did you run ?

comment No /dev/hidraw device when I plug in a Yubikey
Possible. This is a random guess, but the key could be in a firmware installation/upgrade mode. I have a mouse that shows the same kind of interface when upgrading the firmware. From the docs on Yubico's website, the keys are configured with HID feature reports only, and the firmware isn't supposed to be modifiable.

comment No /dev/hidraw device when I plug in a Yubikey
lsusb doesn't show any HID interface. And the product id doesn't correspond to any of those I could find for Yubico keys, which would explain the software doesn't find it.

Which mean both questions end up being not very useful. Still, you shouldn't post the same question twice.

comment How can I get the root terminal to add myself into sudoers file so that I can act as root?
@TomášZato Yes, there is no "sudo password". The most common setting is for sudo to ask for your user's password. So maybe you did set root's password to the same as your user ?

comment Why aren't sda3 and sda4 displayed with fdsik -l?
It's not Linux that "allows only 4 primary partitions", it's the MBR partition table format. It's the same on Windows. The GPT format usually used nowadays doesn't have this limitation.

comment Why can't I kill the shell using the PID obtained from the $$ special variable?
xargs is totally overkill here. Just use kill $$ (although it won't work, as explained in link above). And you should copy paste the text instead of posting a screenshot.
