Re: Overwrite An Entire Disk

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda I could be wrong, but I believe this only wipes the partition table, which can be restored with testdisk. The data on the partitions is still there. I would wipe the partition table with this... dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1 ...and then use fdisk or gparted ...

Re: autostart has me flummoxed

Did you get this working?

If not try this:
Copy /usr/share/applications/gnome-terminal.desktop to $HOME/.config/autostart/
Make two copies and rename them
gnome-terminal-1.desktop
gnome-terminal-2.desktop
logout

You can then configure your size, etc. in Edit->Profile Preferences.

Re: xrdb does not read ~/.Xresources ???

I've wondered about this myself. What happens if you run: $ xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources ? There is already a startup script that does this, but the merge doesn't seem to happen... /etc/X11/xinit/xinit-common userresources=$HOME/.Xresources usermodmap=$HOME/.Xmodmap userxkbmap=$HOME/.Xkbmap sysresource...

Re: How to install Mate Compiz and Docky on Centos 7

Hello gyoramg Nice job on this script. I had no problem whatsoever. Thank you To make things a little more desktopish (and to help me remember), I added a few lines to my copy to enable login sound and to give a systemd hint for runlevel 3. Like so: --- ### Be sure we are at runlevel 3 ... echo "Or ...
