Is this the original size (2858x1000)?

comment GIMP plugin to change ticket number and export image automatically
Nice ticket! What I have in mind is automatically adding an extra layer (with Imagemagick) with a transparant background. The numbering is the easy part. I did some tests, seems to work nicely, but the font seems pretty essential in your case, Ah I see you added it. ...And it is a comercial one.

I think it can be done. what is the size of your ticket image and where does the number need to appear?

comment Linux scripting
there are numerous scripting languages, of which bash is 1.0. Your question is very easy in either one of them. I suggest you should try to dive into the subject first.

comment split big text file (10GB) with split command a) with a minimum size of the output file (40MB) and b) after a specific string (</record>)
One more question: is the last line of a "division" (when cut into pieces) "</record>" or does the last line of a section contain "</record>". The first one would make it much easier, otherwise a line would have to be separated and divided into two sections. That is a handicap when dealing with huge files.

Do you have an idea of the average line length? and does it vary a lot (looking at it from a large scale)?

comment Usability problems in Ubuntu
Maybe you should take a short time to introduce yourself to an OS you've obviously never used before. Type yelp in Dash for a start. Then if you have specific questions, ask one at a time.

@muru, well do what you think you have to do, I think the signal is correct.

comment What $PATH means?
@muru I don't agree, I think there is no actual difference if it's your own or not, I think you shouldn't use language extensions in $PATH. Ugly in commands as well, but as I said it still does work.

@muru sure, but why not keep it?
