comment How to customize Bash command completion?
@terdon Well, that'd depend on the programmable completion I installed. But yeah, I might have to type lock<TAB> or loca<TAB> to avoid loc<TAB>->localc. But I'd actually like to make it context-sensitive, which is why programmable completion would be nice...

comment Why is ImageMagick's `compare` command so slow and is there an alternative?
... using more complicated images increased the time to 0.2s. Hmmm, I wonder... Nope, nothing I generated in gimp took longer at 640x400. Using imagemagick-6.q16=8:6.8.9.6-4+b1 here.

I quickly made two images, i.stack.imgur.com/KQiJX.png and i.stack.imgur.com/fWwyu.png. time compare -metric PHASH a.png b.png null: on my machine takes 0.01s. Curious about yours taking ~25s...

comment Yet another problem mounting SD cards!
Do the partitions show up in /proc/partitions? And is there anything in dmesg relating to the card when you insert it? (BTW: Please edit your question to add additional information; that way its collected all in one place, not buried in a potentially long comment chain).

Not an answer, but apt-cache search image compare gives several alternatives including findimagedupes, perceptualdiff, and openimageio-tools. Also, as I found out the other day while writing a tag description, there is motion which sounds like what you're trying to reimplement...

comment Yet another problem mounting SD cards!
@xernobyl Which operating system (including distribution, at least if Linux), and version are you using? Also, you refer to this as "another" problem, but it appears to be your first question; is there a different question we should refer to for background?

comment Yet another problem mounting SD cards!
@JohnWHSmith That won't cause the device to not appear. Quite possible OP's fdisk just doesn't recognize the filesystem in use, which isn't a problem (other than it printing "unknown" instead of the filesystem name)

comment Print pids and names of processes as they are created
An interesting side note is that the pid is first created as a copy of the creating process (fork or variant), then the new program is started using a member of the exec family. So you probably want to log the exec*, not the fork.
