comment How to run a bash script after 20 sec on Login?
@Mahdi then you should redirect the output to a file so you can monitor that.

comment How to run a bash script after 20 sec on Login?
Hey @Mahdi I think you are doing this all wrong, I just checked cpulimit, it does not limit cpu access to executables that you are not running, for that to work bomi needs to be already started and running in your system so this approach is all wrong.

@kasperd "A simple way of doing that is to add those lines to rc.local(...)"

I think its because you are meant to run that as your user and not root. su user -c <command> should fix that.

Do you need to run that for your user or globally for the whole system? the solution I provided runs as root, if you want your user to be the one executing the commands change the lines after sleep with su -c user '<command>'.

@KasiyA Perfect, that's what was missing! Thanks for the suggestion, this worked perfectly in a test box.

@Joyce Hai, I am installing 15.04 and testing this again (this was done a few weeks ago and could not catch up with new packages). Will get back to you asap.

@FuzzyToothpaste That is your option, I am also fine with it. No one is saying what you can or not do, you could install a server release + icewm and that would suffice for all graphical tasks but that is not the point of the question. the question is how to disable it, not to un-install it or prevent installing.

comment Which is actual difference between package update and security updates?
Well, no, unattended-upgrades come by default to only upgrade security packages in Ubuntu, if you read its configuration file you will see that. More info here: askubuntu.com/questions/87849/… +1

Question is about "how to remove a pool", not "how to recover a removed pool".

Hello BBK, would be nice to know why you are trying to do this. There might be alternatives to what you are trying to do.

comment How to create animated GIF images of a screencast?
@DanDascalescu No one says you need to use it... I much prefer a terminal than a GUI, what is wrong with that?

comment Execute sudo without Password?
@wil93 Define "untrusted"... Do you read every single script you download before running it? No, that would be a hassle. Besides, I said that was just a case in many.

comment Execute sudo without Password?
@wil93 you are missing the point: a script that calls for sudo install crapware will not ask for a password in this case and might mess up everything you have, and you do not need to be physically next to a machine to distribute scripts last time I checked... This is just an example.

comment How do I merge 2 VMware disks in to a single one?
ext4 growth is possible without any further steps, even for / partitions. resize2fs will do that for you even on less than recent distributions.
