comment My terminal is giving unformatted results (output) after upgrading to Ubuntu 15.10
You say your terminal is showing weird output for the compile, but you don't show it to us - can you copy and paste the text (rather than a screenshot) of the weird output.

comment cygwin ssh not working
@Jakuje that's a good point about the OpenSSH version, but that guide isn't anything to do with Cygwin.

comment cygwin ssh not working
As @Anthon suggests, you need to install sshd, configure it and also potentially open firewall ports on your Windows box. Can you describe what steps you used to install and configure sshd.

comment Unable to follow steps for building application in Linux Os?
The original question discusses Fedora, your solution uses apt-get (which is for Debian or Debian-derived distributions generally).

comment How to get filenames when using find and sed
I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to achieve, can you show a list of files, and what output you're expecting to see.

There's about a thousand reasons for people not accepting answers, you can't work out why unless they say.

comment How to print the difference of two text files using shell scripting?
Still not enough - do the two files have a sorted list of URL's or are they a random assortment of URLs that may not be in the same order in each file? Are the full URLs or just domain names prefixed by http:// (i.e. do the URLs contain slashes, punctuation, numbers, etc.) Does the order matter, or is it purely 'does this URL exist in this other file'. We need to see a real sample set or a more detailed description and as @don_crissti suggests, we need to know what output you're expecting.

Can you show us a slightly longer sample of both files, or at least a longer list of examples?

comment What does `cp -x` do?
@Wildcard I think it's a fair question (although short), and it's led to a fair answer. Not sure closing it because you don't think it describes the real question you think should be asked and that the answer to that question is long, is a fair reason.

comment cannot reload .profile from script
When you run the first script, it's launching a sub-shell, running the script, and in that sub-shell it's sourcing the profile, then the script ends, and so does the sub-shell, returning you to your previous shell in which none of the environment has changed. It might work if you reconfigure this as an alias, not a script, so it runs in your current shell when executed.

comment Save history to separate file with time-stamp and who did the action
You should review the Auditing subsystem in your relevant Linux distribution to see if it supports what you want. Proper, secure, reliable useful auditing is very complex (and has an overhead).

Yes, but it helps if you include them in the question.

comment Searching for specific user group membership with an exact match
So the output of id -Gn username is something like, bob admin staff dudes staff admin? - if there's no separator, you can't return just staff?

comment CentOS 6.7: network is unreachable after a new clean installation
Regardless of the actual issue, this answer needs more explanation about why you need to run those commands what they're fixing, otherwise it's not as helpful as it could be.
