revised phone book script
You need to quote your variables. What if they contain spaces, as the address will alsmot certainly do? >> Is not a pipe! >> Also creates a file. Other minor spelling/formatting improvements

comment Lubuntu 15.04 & Windows 10: expanding partition
The free space is shown correctly for your second ntfs partition. Have you shut down windows cleanly? I mean shut down and not hibernate? If not, boot back into windows, shut it down, and try again.

@AlexWolf what do you mean "no change"? Did you run sudo gparted? Did that open a window like the one I show above with your disk drive? Was the empty space not listed? If so, please take a screenshot and add it to your question.

comment gnome-terminal / mate-terminal don't save history on ~./bash_history
Please edit your question and add the output of these commands: ls -l ~/.bash_history; history | wc; echo $HISTFILESIZE; echo $HISTFILE; ps -p $$ (run it in mate or gnome terminal and then also on xterm).

comment watch cuts off ps aux output when piped
I can''t reproduce on my machine. watch "ps aux | grep 'ps aux'" wraps as expected. There does seem to be an issue with watch only showing limited output. You might be interested in my question here: Does watch only monitor the visible output?.

comment What are the differences between executing shell scripts using “source file.sh”, “./file.sh”, “sh file.sh”, “. ./file.sh”?
@didibus I'm not sure what you mean. Command substitution runs in a subshell; ./foo.sh runs in a new shell that is not a copy of the parent. For example, if you set foo="bar" in your terminal and then run a script that executes echo $foo, you will get an empty line since the script's shell won't have inherited the variable's value. pgrep is a separate binary, and yes it is run by the script you are running.

comment How Can I Access A Broken Ubuntu 14.04 File System?
What are "user level files"? ` /bin, /boot, /dev, /etc` etc., should be inaccessible to regular users. Why would they contain any user files? Please edit your question and show us the files you see when running ls -al /mnt (use the formatting tools to make them display correctly). Also, please clarify exactly what files you are looking for.

comment cli command to run keyboard shortcuts, e.g. Alt-F2
@folti7 if your question is about cinnamon, please edit it and make that clear. I added the name of the specific script cinnamon runs but, as I said, I don't think you'll be able to launch this from the hot corner.

comment Virtual Box activation
1) This is off topic here, we're an Ubuntu site. 2) This is off topic everywhere on the SE network; we won't help you get software illegally. 3) When asking here, you need to put some effort into your question. Use the correct capitalization and write English, not textspeak. 4) Even if the previous were not true, you need to explain what you've tried if you don't want to get the same answers you've already attempted. 5) Paragraphs are your friend. They make things easier to read. Just a few tips for the next place you try to ask this on.

I don't understand. What is the question here? Since you're new to the site, you might want to take the tour and read the help center. This is not a discussion forum, we only deal with specific questions and answers.
