comment suppress grep directory warnings globally
This works nicely. I also found something called GREP_OPTIONS where the "-d skip" could be added instead. However, some bright spark somewhere decided that GREP_OPTIONS has been deprecated, and prints an annoying message when used, alas. So adding this as an alias (to profile or bashrc or whereever) is the best option. alias grep='/bin/grep -d skip'

comment suppress grep directory warnings globally
I realize I can do this, and it would help with many cases of suppressing this warning. But, I am hoping for something which does not alter how grep is invoked/executed, and which won't suppress other grep warnings, and would work even for when grep isn't run (directly) by the shell.

comment How to switch desktop environment in Debian
My question may look similar to unix.stackexchange.com/questions/269392/…, and while that answer suggests switching is possible, it does not indicate how. And my question may also look similar to unix.stackexchange.com/questions/47563/…, but all the answers are about installing a new environment, not switching.
