How to permanently mount a Windows share on Linux

LXer - Sat, 2016-06-25 22:52
It has never been easier for Linux to interact within a Windows network. And considering how many businesses are adopting Linux, those two platforms have to play well together. Fortunately, with the help of a few tools, you can easily map Windows network drives onto a Linux machine, and even ensure they are still there upon rebooting the Linux machine.

Can someone explain to me how exactly the GUI works on Linux?

Reddit - Sat, 2016-06-25 22:39

Hello, me and my friend are interested in how the GUI works, in detail. So far, all that I know is the following flowchart (assuming it's correct):

hardware -> driver -> OpenGL -> ???? -> what we see

So, what is it that uses the OpenGL to render the interface itself? I'm pretty sure that it isn't just one specific application, and I'd like to know how those applications communicate together to form what we see.

Team Peppermint are pleased to announce our latest operating system Peppermint 7.

Joe Colantonio wants to "show you how to succeed with all your testing efforts." He says, "Automation testing, like all development efforts, is difficult. Most projects don’t succeed." Frankly, it's all a little over our heads.

ELI5: Does someone have a robust or even working way to pass files and paths from ZSH to external programs?

Reddit - Sat, 2016-06-25 16:23

I've used zsh for over 2 years now and I've been using bash as a crutch whenever I need to pass files or paths to external programs.

Just getting mv to work in a sane way has proven impossible. I've tried every type of arg, bracket, modifier, shell opt etc.

I'm seriously going to lose my mind... I spent an hour last night and I couldn't even alias a simple mv command. I can't remember the last time I did something that made me almost hate Linux... but this is doing it.
