A simple way of doing that is to add those lines to rc.local in your system. For that you need root or sudo rights. You can edit the file with your favourite text editor, eg vim: vim /etc/rc.local (sleep 20 echo 'cpu limit bomi player at 40%' cpulimit -v -e bomi -l 40) & The first line tells the the computer to wait 20 seconds, the other 2 lines are ...

If you are directly thrown to the GRUB menu, it's too late for pressing those keys. By this time, GRUB has already "taken over control" of your computer. So you have to press the appropriate key(s) before. I've looked it up on Dell's website: The key required for entering the BIOS Setup menu is F2. Unless your system is quite old, in which case some of ...

I think it's not possible without configuring sudo to let the user launch the program without a password (through /etc/sudoers and the NOPASSWD option), which can be considered like a more or less important security risk depending on the program involved. The best that can be done is to instruct sudo to restrict this to a single user, and only for that ...

So I had to look a little further, and I have learnt a great deal, albeit not ...

Btrfs isn’t too much stable to be used as deafult file-system. Most Linux distributions, probable all, are still using ext4 as primary file-system. So, you can completely remove it from your computer. Try the given command: sudo apt-get purge btrfs-tools This command will remove btrfs-tools from your computer. You may need to wait some minutes to complete ...

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but if /dev/sda1 is already mounted at /boot, wouldnt you get a redundant /boot in your path when you're also specifying it in the $isofile variable? I think GRUB is looking for the image in /boot/boot/, so maybe try changing to: set isofile="ubuntu-14.10-desktop-amd64.iso"

I was able to fix it by the following command. sudo pico /etc/default/grub Change GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=”" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=”text” this makes Ubuntu boot directly into Text Mode.

Startup Applications, as far as I know, adds a .desktop file to /etc/xdg/autostart/ directory. This directory is not exclusive to Ubuntu. I run Fedora 20 on my other laptop, and it's the same method. Another way is to place a .desktop file into your ~/.config/autostart/ directory. Again , this is not exclusive to Ubuntu. In both cases, though, the ...
