comment vte.sh does not keep my gnome-terminal directory in new tab
I forgot to mention that, but roxterm, which is very similar to gnome-terminal, has this functionality by default. On Debian/Ubuntu, the package to install is roxterm-gtk3 or roxterm-gtk2.

comment Make bash use external `time` command rather than shell built-in

comment emulate key-combination with xdotool

comment at and daylight saving time
This question is old, but I'm interested in the answer too. I have always scheduled tasks using a shell script that parses the time given and then uses GNU sleep. The problem is that this week the daylight savings time changed, and sleep was there totally stuck for hours.
