Linux Desktop experiences

DRAFT

A long-long years ago (til 2007) I used linux as desktop (Gentoo exactly).

After, the windows 7 and the 10 also will be a very-very good PC OSs.

BUT I tried the Ubuntu 20.04, and it seems work wine from 1 month at my 2in1 PC with WWAN card (DELL 7390).

I would like to collect some useful programs which I found very userful, fast and maintined (actually).

4. Press ENTER.

You’ll now be taken to the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations branch.

Expand the “SystemFileAssociations” branch by double-clicking on it
Scroll down until you see a subkey named “image”
Double-click “image”

Double-click “shell”

Double-click “edit”

Double-click “command”

Ubuntu/Debian (linux) WSL and Docker

If you would like to use docker on windows Ubuntu/Debain WSL you have to modify the .bashrc file in your home directory.

vi ~/.bashrc

and add this line to the end:

That’s all folks ūüėÄ

Ubuntu WSL add git brach name to promt

you have to mofify ~/.basrc from that:

 

if [ "$color_prompt" = yes ]; then
    PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\[\033[01;32m\]\u@\h\[\033[00m\]:\[\033[01;34m\]\w\[\033[00m\]\$ '
else
    PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\u@\h:\w\$ '
fi
unset color_prompt force_color_prompt

to

if [ "$color_prompt" = yes ]; then
    PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\[\033[01;32m\]\u@\h\[\033[00m\]:\[\033[01;34m\]\w\[\033[01;31m\]$(parse_git_branch)\[\033[00m\]\$ '
else
    PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\u@\h:\w$(parse_git_branch)\$ '
fi
#unset color_prompt force_color_prompt
