comment How to use ln -s to create a command line shortcut?
If you consider this question to be generic enough, please answer it to keep it for the posterior. I didn't think it was worth it. Cheers!

comment How to use ln -s to create a command line shortcut?
If you want to execute the script from anywhere using studio alone, you have to put the link in a place that is being searched by the shell. The shell searches everything in echo $PATH. You can either change $PATH or put the link into one the directories of $PATH. What do you prefer?

comment Live Linux and FAT32
Hello, please try to clarify what you mean by "modular system to contain their system files" and what your problem is, exactly. Almost all distributions can run off USB drives.

du -ach ~ will recursively show the size of all files and directories in ~, execute it and let us know which ones you want to filter for

comment Kerning problem when using a variable width font in Debian terminal
ouch, please show echo $LANG echo $0 echo -e "\xE2\x98\xA0". If you launch uxterm, does the same problem appear? Also, while it is exemplary to have strong sudo passwords (in your case 24 characters), it is not advisable to save it in clear text in your home directory.

comment Syncing folders where multiple files are partially changed
If I understand correctly, you want the sync to be clever enough to detect similar binary files and only transmit the difference? rsync cannot do this I believe, since it works on file-by-file basis. However, incremental compressed backups may be exactly what you want: They create a compressed difference of a previous snapshot. You could automate the creation, transmission and extraction of such an archive.

comment Configure internet connectivity in Centos 6.4 through wired LAN
Please clarify which user name and password you entered and where exactly? Is it the one from your internet service provider (ISP)? Did you install tools from your ISP in windows? Also, let us know exactly what is connected to the LAN (a router perhaps?). Did you get an IP (through DHCP)?

comment How can I find out the IP address from which a user logged in?
Welcome to Unix & Linux! Your question has been reformatted. Please make sure to use a very specific title (the most important bit of your question). Also, please specify how the user logged in (e.g. ssh?) You could use a tag if you want.

It's not a standard tool, but I think it deserves more publicity. See the link above , for download and source.

comment Modify a file without creating another file
thanks @nyuszika7h for suggesting multiple improvements. The script was a quick (sloppy) submission. If there are issues left, please let me know - I'm always keen on improving. E.g. I didn't know that echo has any issues. I'll check that.

by the way, sed -i internally writes to a temporary file and then moves it into the place of the original file. The option title --in-place is a little misleading.

comment What are the minimum system requirements for ultimate edition 4.2
Dual booting is possible with all Linux distributions, but some make it easier to set up during install. What you should do in the beginning is using a Live USB Drive (i.e. booting the distro from a USB drive without modifying your system at all). That way, you can test the distribution and get familiar with the look and feel.

comment What are the minimum system requirements for ultimate edition 4.2
The OS will just run fine. I assume you also want to play games when you install this kind of distro, so that depends a lot on your graphics card and the requirements of the game. In this sense, the question is not really answerable for us.
