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?submitted by /u/donfrenchiano
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.submitted by /u/tenbeersdeep
