Nautilus, also known as “Files”, is the default file manager of the GNOME desktop environment. In a previous tutorial we saw how to create and call custom scripts from the Nautilus context-menu: this feature can be really useful but is somehow limited. By installing the nautilus-python package in our favorite Linux distribution, and writing just few lines of Python code, we can overcome such limitations and create proper Nautilus extensions.
hosts.deny file can be used on a Linux system to deny connection attempts from one or more IP addresses, hostnames, or domains. It can work with any TCP wrapped service on your system. The
hosts.deny file is used in conjunction with
hosts.allow to determine whether a connection attempt gets accepted or denied.
A Linux system can utilize the
hosts.allow file to specify which IP addresses, hostnames, or domains are permitted to connect to it. This works specifically for TCP wrapped services. The
hosts.allow file is used in conjunction with
hosts.deny to determine whether a connection attempt gets accepted or denied.
Creating an alias is a good way to make commands easier to remember and quicker to type. In case you want to extend the functionality of your aliases even further, it is possible to have them accept arguments and parameters. This gives users the ability to execute complex and lengthy commands in only a few keystrokes on the command line.
Docker is a free and open source OS-level virtualization system which allows us to pack and deliver applications together with their dependencies in isolated and reproducible environments called containers. Docker containers are built on the base of Images, which can become “dangling” in certain situations.
PCManFM is a free and open source file manager which is meant to be a lightweight alternative to applications like Thunar (the default Xfce4 file manager) or Nautilus/Files (the GNOME counterpart). Although designed to by easy on resources, PCManFM doesn’t lack functionalities, and it can be extended with custom actions.
Adding a monitor to a setup is probably one of the most effective and immediate ways to increase productivity. A multi monitor setup can be useful, for example, when we need to consult some kind of documentation and at the same time work on another task full-screen. Autorandr is a free and open source utility able to apply specific X11 configurations depending on the displays connected to our machine.
In this tutorial we will use CH341A programmer to read, write and erase data/firmware on attached chip. This is your getting started guide to CH341A programmer. CH341A programmer allows users to attach variety of chips in order to read or backup firmware or overwrite the exiting firmware.
An alias on Linux allows a user to reference one command (usually a longer or more cumbersome command) to another (usually a shorter version of the command which is easier to type). This saves users a few keystrokes on the command line, or can also compensate for common typos. In this tutorial, you will learn how to list all the aliases that have been configured on a Linux system.
Creating an alias for use on the command line can save the user from typing long commands, common options, or typos. This will save you some time and repetitive keystrokes, and ultimately make your command line experience even more efficient. In this tutorial, we will take you through the step by step instructions to create a permanent alias on a Linux system.
