comment gedit - show file path for recently opened files
@ThorstenNiehues Hi Thorsten, there should be nothing to debug, but if you post back what is the terminal output, we'll have it fixed no doubt. That is if you like the solution. Does script [1] run, and does it create a file ~/.latest_gedit.txt if you open gedit files for at least a few seconds??

comment Script for Opening Two Terminals and Execute Three Consecutive Commands
Could you tell what the failing command was (and in what series of commands)? I tested it pretty thorough, it shouldn't fail.

That is normally set in the .install file. superior directories will be created.

comment Install Epson XP 102
@Fabby That' s not the most friendly thing you've ever said :) However, In general: either OP will translate it him/herself after the mild suggestion, or answers in English will not land too well. That's the reason I do not translate too quickly, even if he or she speaks my language.

Simply run the script here: askubuntu.com/a/642095/72216 with target_term -set <number_of_windows>, subsequently send your commands to the terminals as described. Can be done in one command, including sleep.

comment Libre Office won't open
you must be referring to this on: askubuntu.com/questions/561711/libre-office-will-not-open which I answered in a comment and was posted by OP then as an answer :) Possibly the cause is the same in your case. You have to remove the LibreOffice settings folder. 1.Simply go to your personal folder in nautilus (the file manager) 2. On your keyboard, press Control+H. 3. A lot of folders will show up that were hidden before, a.o. a folder named .config. Open it. 3. look for a folder named libreoffice . remove it, log out and back in.

Could you explain what the conversion would be exactly? In python, I am pretty sure, this would be easy(-er).

comment Shell script to remove unity launcher(if present in Ubuntu 14.04 ) and/or the xfce panel (in the case of xubuntu)
manojpatidar, Are you referring to a launcher or the launcher? If the first is the case, it' s a dupe of: askubuntu.com/questions/611162/…

comment Non-sudo alternative to /usr/local/bin for common scripts
I think you are the only one : ), I am pretty sure. Did you try creating it, add an executable, log out/in and run it?

comment Non-sudo alternative to /usr/local/bin for common scripts
In all of them, I always use it, in many of my (accepted) answers as well, never got any comment on that, works her at home on five systems as well, but, as said, after running source ~/.profile . See (e.g.) here: askubuntu.com/a/247422/72216

Just to mention ~/bin is in $PATH by default on Ubuntu. Just run source ~/.profile or log out/in after you created the directory.
