Linux automation with a script

Submitted by peter on Wed, 12/21/2022 - 20:56

You can automate some things in Linux using scripts. Here is a quick example or two.

I am using Linux Mint with the Cinnamon user interface plus the Raspberry Pi OS on my Pi computers. For there examples, they are almost identical. Most distributions of Linux have similar file managers and text editors. Use whatever is on your computer. If you do not have Linux and want to experiment, an old notebook computer is a cheap and easy starting place. Just install Linux Mint.

Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1 TB as my next notebook disk?

There are a heap of SSD reviews online and many quote specifications that do not match the current version of whatever they are reviewing. Some tested the speed of the Windows operating system, not the hardware speed. User reviews are even worse as they often do not mention what they actually bought or how they tested the device. Here is my current research.

Linux is the world's most used operating system. Linux outnumbers everything else on servers. The Android version of Linux outnumbers every else on smartphones and other handheld devices. Linux is used in most remote controls, television sets, new cars, tractors, robots, and almost everything containing anything more than a basic silicon chip. Linux and battery life is still an issue.
