Excellent.. looks like you're all set. 8)

I like those ls aliases, by the way, very cool. Did you come up with those Diziet ?

<chuckles> I wish!

No mate.. none of that .bashrc is my own work. As I said, it's just the bog-standard (default) .bashrc file. It's been that way for years.

I thought I'd ask since those ls aliases looked custom ;).

Well, I installed virtualbox 4.2 and - openSUSE VM is connected to internet - for the first time ever :!: Hurray, thanks for the tip there, I think that going with the new version helped, a couple tweaks and I was online :mrgreen:

Excellent news! Don't forget to update the Guest Additions in your openSUSE VM! :wink:

Handy aliases I use...

Code: Select all

# Aliases
# #######

# Some example alias instructions
# If these are enabled they will be used instead of any instructions
# they may mask.  For example, alias rm='rm -i' will mask the rm
# application.  To override the alias instruction use a \ before, ie
# \rm will call the real rm not the alias.

# Interactive operation...
# alias rm='rm -i'
# alias cp='cp -i'
# alias mv='mv -i'

# Default to human readable figures
alias df='df -h'
alias du='du -h'

# Misc :)
# alias less='less -r'                          # raw control characters
alias whence='type -a'                        # where, of a sort
alias grep='grep --color'                     # show differences in colour
alias egrep='grep --color -E'                 # show differences in colour
alias fgrep='grep --color -F'                 # show differences in colour

# Some shortcuts for different directory listings
alias ls='ls -hF --color=auto'                # classify files in colour
alias dir='ls --color=auto --format=vertical'
alias vdir='ls --color=auto --format=long'
alias ll='ls -l'                              # long list
alias la='ls -A'                              # all but . and ..
alias l='ls -CF'                              #

alias ds='ls -rS -alF --color=auto'
alias dt='ls -rt -alF --color=auto'
alias dv='ls -v -alF --color=auto'
alias dx='ls -X -alF --color=auto'

alias md=mkdir
alias rd=rmdir

alias qq=nano
alias pstree='pstree -Uulhca'
alias linkdead='ps -a | grep "^I.*bash$" - | cut -c5-9 - | xargs kill -HUP'
alias mc='. /usr/share/mc/bin/mc-wrapper.sh'
alias make='LC_ALL=C make'

I like those - I also like the comments that have been put in ;). I'm not sure if I'd want to eclipse my rm, mv and cp commands, but it probably isn't a bad idea to be prompted while using them :D.

I didn't snap at first - these look like DOS commands, if I'm not mistaken - it's been a long time since DOS :lol: (which has bastardizations of Unix and CP/M commands)

A handy little alias I just now thought of for resizing Oolite screenshots before uploading to photobucket. :D

Code: Select all

# Proportionally resize images to 900 pixels wide for Oolite forum
alias shrink='mogrify -resize 900'
e.g. :-
shrink oolite-547.png - for a single file, or
shrink *.png for an entire folder of images.

<looks around - no penguins> I've taken to cropping screenshots for posting, rather than resizing them - I think the image quality is slightly better that way.
Of course, that only works for pics with the hud disabled - but that's how I take most of my pics anyway.

Man, you have no idea how long I've wanted an easy way to go about resizing. I'm addin' this one to my list :D

I often crop as well.. Ubuntu had a handy little image viewer that could crop.. haven't seen something similar on Mint yet. I might need to dig up the name of the program I used to use and install it.

I've been using mogrify for ages.. the alias just occurred to me because I was sick of toggling through my bash history to save typing the command from scratch. (Mogrify is an amazingly versatile tool.. read up on it when you have some time..)

<fires up terminal and types in man mogrify > :D Man, there sure are a helluva lot of options for this utility :)

I finally remembered the name of the program I was using for cropping:- Shotwell. It's pretty basic, but faster and simpler than loading up GIMP just to crop an image. :D

EV isn't actually a penguin, so I don't think he'll be able to make much use out of Shotwell ;).
I added another alias, it's actually a couple more letters than oolite, but, it will launch the game and exit the terminal, much like your debug alias :mrgreen:

Code: Select all

alias ooniverse='nohup oolite & exit'
