The world of technology is constantly evolving, and the field of Linux is no exception. With the rapid advancement of automation, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, Linux professionals are facing new challenges and opportunities in their careers. In this article, we will take a closer look at the impact of automation on Linux jobs and explore the future of Linux careers in the age of automation. We will examine the current trends, the evolution of Linux skills, and the new and emerging Linux job roles.
More often than not, on our Linux system, we can find two or more applications of the same type installed: it is typically the case of text editors, but we can also have multiple web browsers, for example. Setting the default application used to perform a specific task system-wide, however, can sometimes be problematic. To solve this problem, on Debian and Debian-based Linux distributions, we can use the alternatives system and the “update-alternatives” tool.
ShellCheck is a free and open source static analysis tool which can be used to check and improve shell scripts.

User Not In Sudoers File Error on all major Linux distributions. When trying to execute Linux commands with root privileges via the
sudo command, you will receive an error message if the current user is not in the sudoers file. This is a security feature on Linux systems to stop ordinary users from esclating their commands to administrator privileges.
Checking for open ports on Ubuntu Linux is an essential part of security administration. Some Linux software works by listening for incoming connections. A simple example would be a web server, which handles user requests whenever someone navigates to a website. As a Linux administrator or user, it’s important to always know which ports of your system are open to the internet. Otherwise, you could be unaware of outside connections being made to your computer, which consumes bandwidth and resources, along with being a potential security hole.
If you are a Windows user and do not want to take the full plunge into Linux, Windows Subsystem for Linux can be a fair compromise to at least give you some Linux capabilities on your Windows sytem. Ubuntu 22.04 is a great operating system to install on WSL, and definitely the most popular of the Linux distributions currently offered. Both Windows 10 and Windows 11 systems are capable of installing Ubuntu 22.04 through WSL.
Wayland is a communication protocol that specifies the communication between a display server and its clients, and we can choose whether to enable/disable Wayland on Ubuntu.

In this tutorial, you will see how to disable and enable Wayland in Ubuntu 22.04 Jammy Jellyfish.
