Reddit: Weird issue with rsync/crontab/mail

Tuesday 4th of April 2017 08:36:33 PM

I have a script (if you can call it that) that will use rsync to backup a specific directory to my NAS and then email me the output when it is done. This worked fine until i moved the linux install to a VM (in Hyper-V). When I moved it to the VM i just did a fresh install of ubuntu server and used the same script. The script is set in crontab to run at certain times. After the job is done it emails me the output like 60 times in separate emails. If i run the script manually it only emails me once like its supposed to. I also just copied the command from the script and put that directly into crontab with the same result. I only seem to get the 50-60 emails when the script is executed from crontab. Can anyone point in the right direction on where to start looking for the issue?

Reddit: Why is installing new themes such a pain?

Tuesday 4th of April 2017 08:23:43 PM

I was messing around with Fedora in a VM today and wanted to install a theme. I go to gnome-look and downloaded a file for a theme that looks nice. I Drop the file in to the theme selector and.... Nothing. I decompress the files and drop those in to the theme selector... nothing. Why is this so annoying and complicated? Why can't we have a better way to do this? is there a distro that handles themes better? Don't even get me started on XFCE.

Tuesday 4th of April 2017 07:37:37 PM
Python is a popular language capable of scripting as well as object-oriented programming. Several frameworks provide a GUI (graphical user interface) for Python, and most of them are good at something, whether it's simplicity, efficiency, or flexibility. Two of the most popular are wxPython and PyQt, but how do they compare? More importantly, which should you choose for your project?read more

  • Xed Text Editor: Can It Really Compete with Gedit and Pluma
    There are many text editors available for Linux such as command line editors (vi, vim, nano and so) and GUI editors (Gedit, Pluma, Kate and so on). Linux always has space for new stuff but Xed isn't new and around from quite sometime. Xed text editor offers most of the standard editor features, extending this basic functionality with other features not usually found in simple text editors. It supports editing of multiple text files in a window (using Tabs) just like any other famous text editor. Support to encode UTF-8 files, compare files among others, syntax highlighting of source code, auto indentation and manual indentation, printing, print preview support, and many other standard features.

  • Minwaita: A Compact Version of Theme Adwaita for Gnome Desktop
    As you may already know that Ubuntu is switching back to Gnome, this is the transition time for Ubuntu to switch back. Some creators are motivated and creating themes for Gnome desktop, which is a good thing and hopefully we shall see plenty of Gnome themes and icons around soon. As its name shows "Minwaita" it is minimal/compact version of Adwaita theme, the theme is available after some enhancements to make Gnome more sleek and more vanilla Gnome experience without moving to away from Adwaita's design. This theme is compatible with Gnome 3.20 and up versions. This theme was released back in November, 2016 and still in continuous development that means if you find any problem or bug in the theme then report it to get it fixed in the next update. Obsidian-1 icons used in the following screenshots.

  • Widget hierarchies in GTK+ 4.0
    In GTK+3, only GtkContainer subclasses can have child widgets. This makes a lot of sense for “public” container children like we know them, e.g. GtkBox — i.e. the developer can add, remove and reorder child widgets arbitrarily and the container just does layout.
