comment Problem changing icons in ubuntu 14.04
A few questions; 1) How did you exactly edit the .desktop file(s) 2) what was the application? 3) Did you edit it with sudo or as root? In the last case it would make sense. 3) An application has no other icon than the one defined in the .desktop file. Is there a possible duplicate .desktop file? 4) Could you paste the .desktop file or at least the Icon= line?

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>)
It seems to work properly, but please test it in a ~50mb file (into 5mb slices e.g.) to check if all is like you need it to work.

Working on it, have to see if it will be fast enough on huge files.

comment GIMP plugin to change ticket number and export image automatically
It should work now, see the answer below. The script adds the number in a range from 0 to 500 (or another range), creating separate files called "005_ticket.png" and so on.

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.
