comment Same folder and file name in same location
@G-Man: I was only referring to your last assertion in the 1st comment: "then, obviously, the OS should choose the file." - that was what jumped at me as not true for vi. Cheers.

comment Same folder and file name in same location
@G-Man: actually vi which is usually vim on Ubuntu is perfecty happy to open and show a directory and even edit it. Try it: vi .

comment How to kill all processes apart from specific one
+1 for a short and elegant solution. Note that it would have been possible to have an even more efficient (only one command: pkill) solution if pgrep/pkill supported perl regex'es which you use in the 2nd step above. Unfortunately pgrep/pkill only support extended-regexps (like egrep/grep -E).

Have you looked at your logs (in particular /var/log/syslog) for any hints of system or hardware issues?

comment No check box for .jar files in properties for running files as executable
Does the jar file have a main() entry point? You can 'mark' any file as executable using chmod +x filename from a terminal shell. However setting the executable bit is not a sufficient condition to make a file execute.

comment Why is Numlock turned off by default?
@NewUSer can you fix the sed command (last line in the answer above)? It looks truncated (e.g. single quote not closed). Thanks.

comment Do I need to have 'antivirus software' installed?
Sounds like an open-relay being actively exploited on a "not public facing" computer. Does this mean the whole development network can't be trusted anymore? How can a "not public facing" computer be relaying unusual traffic as detected by the ISP? You mention two instances of Malware. How were they installed? Obviously someone with privileges and access has put them there. Sounds like a badly configured system with open access. Nothing, anti-virus or otherwise, can really help here.

comment dockerizing a wine application
This is helpful, thanks. Could you please 1) Make the example standalone (not dependent on monokrome which has some python baggage and other unneeded parts) and 2) Add the step of converting the docker file to an image to make it more complete? I will gladly accept this answer after these two changes.
