Hey there! My name is Fotis Koutoulakis, and I am a young Computer Science Student from Greece.

I am extremely interested in learning how computers work. As a result, I spend a great deal of time with anything that has to do with Computer Infrastructure: Compilers, Computer Architecture, Programming Languages, Operating Systems and Virtual Machines.

My experience primarily lies in Unix like operating systems and when it comes to programming languages I feel particularly comfortable with C and Python. I also have exposure to C++ and Go, and can use them for work, but I am less experienced in them than the other two I previously mentioned.

I am also an Free Software developer. My time is usually spent studying and developing for the GNU Compiler Collection. When I am not working on GCC, I may spend my time on personal projects (usually compilers I have forked and test ideas on, or self built Unix like clone kernels), or study the structure of several projects (like for example LLVM, or GDB, or GNU Bash, or Operating Systems and kernels like Linux, or FreeBSD), or read books related to Computer Architecture, Operating Systems or Compiler design and programming languages.

comment Unity completely broken after upgrade to 12.10?
I am only accepting this answer because it inspired me to install xfce via sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop which seemed to serve well as a work around until some time passes and I try unity again.

I did install it earlier on, from amith's ppa, but it didn't seem to help me.

comment Ubuntu does not recognize added RAM
Hello, and welcome to AskUbuntu. Unfortunately, for us to help you, you need to elaborate some more on your question. For instance what is the version (32 or 64 bits) of your operating system? And if it is 32bits, does your Ubuntu Kernel have PAE enabled?

comment How to install code block?
@Namshum My comment was not to flame you, rather, to imply that any serious software developer is a problem solver, and he should find an answer to his problems by himself and not ask others for solutions to his problems, unless he has done all he could to find an answer, and yet he failed.

comment To write a batch processing script which runs on bash
@cauon Awk is just another tool for scripting. As are bash, python, perl, ruby, and the list goes on and on...

comment To write a batch processing script which runs on bash
@ObsessiveFOSS My thoughts exactly. However, in my opinion, logic is far more important than syntax. Logic is portable amongst different syntax languages.

comment To write a batch processing script which runs on bash
There is no such thing as a batch program in Linux. This is for windows users. The closest thing near it is a bash (shell) script

comment How to install Illustrator CS6 on Precise?
@January yes my friend, but I am afraid I will have to disagree. Ms office is CPU dependent and doesn't use GPU acceleration at all. Adobe products on the other hand, are on a whole new league (GPU-heavy workload)

comment How to install Illustrator CS6 on Precise?
@January when he talks about disadvantages, he must be talking about performance, which will be degraded when run from a vm.

@JavierRivera I see. I would love to delete this answer then, but the system won't let me, since it is the accepted one. Please feel free to downvote it to oblivion.

@FrankV I do not think it is worth the time, unless you are doing it for knowledge or fun or experimentation. If I were you, I'd follow your second option.

Thank you. Is there a command line argument to allow me to manually select which packages to be installed.

@HowardGraham Have you used dpkg -i filename.deb If you are root this installs the .deb package.
