answered the “done” message after a &-command is not displayed right away, but after a user action. Why?

comment Object-oriented shell for *nix
@RobertSCiaccio This answer was just linked in a recent post, and your comment about text parses got me thinking... if text parsing is enough to accomplish your "complex tasks," then couldn't you have a small script or program that implements it and use it as some kind of function in your bash scripts? Just a thought, I don't have much bash scripting experience under my belt to speak of.

comment permision denied error ubuntu update with sudo
As the answer says, && separates the earlier command, and everything after is completely separate. If you want to execute both with a single sudo, use a script.

@Anthon Like I said, I didn't touch any network configuration. I don't think Ubuntu Server's default behavior would be to block the port either.

comment How can I force bash to deallocate a brace expanded variable without name?
Hahah, that's still pretty incredible. Keep up the good job "studying" on that system, mate!

comment How can I force bash to deallocate a brace expanded variable without name?
Completely unrelated: as a poor student still suffering with Sandybridge and 4 GB of RAM, I'm completely awed by nonchalantly having that amount of memory occupied but still use the system as normal, however commercial/server-specced the system is. Is this how poor people feel when they see rich people literally burning their money?

Unfortunately the alternative solution suggested by @Joseph suits the situation I described better. Sorry!

Also, will find recursively look into the subdirectories or do I need to specify exactly where the file is? If that is so, it defeats the purpose, because neither I nor the .desktop file will know the latest version of the program and subsequently the name of the folder with SOFT_REPAIR in it.

Nicely summarized, thank you very much!
