  • Tries to switch all audio devices to the A2DP profile for optimal sound quality. Useful for bluetooth speakers and headphones that always power up in HSP/HFP mode. Note however that this command is only a shorthand for the GUI, so it cannot fix stubborn BT controllers that leave your device stuck in HSP mode until a manual re-coupling.

  • Turns off the bluetooth hardware module. To turn it back on use `rfkill unblock bluetooth`. Works in Ubuntu, probably in other distros as well. I don't know if you need some special user permission to do this. It worked for me out of the box.

list files recursively by size

List the size (in human readable form) of all sub folders from the current location
Simple and easy to remember. -h is human, -d1 = depth 1. disk usage, human, depth 1

find an unused unprivileged TCP port
Some commands (such as netcat) have a port option but how can you know which ports are unused?

graphical memory usage
smem is very clever, it keeps in mind shared memory in its calculations!!! http://www.selenic.com/smem/

Customize time format of 'ls -l'
the --time-style argument to 'ls' takes several possible modifiers: full-iso, long-iso, iso, locale, +FORMAT. The +FORMAT modifier uses the same syntax as date +FORMAT. --time-style=+"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S" strikes a happy medium between accuracy and verbosity: $ ls -lart --time-style=long-iso doesn't show time down to the nearest second, $ ls -lart --time-style=full-iso displays time to 10E-9 second resolution, but with no significant digits past the full seconds, also showing the timezone: $ -rw-r--r-- 1 bchittenden bchittenden 0 2011-02-10 12:07:55.000000000 -0500 bar

Open Vim with two windows
: new command allow to split a Vim screen in two separate windows. Each window can handle its own buffer. Passing the -c new options when Vim start cause to split screen automatically.

Comma insertions
Insert a comma where necessary when counting large numbers. I needed to separate huge amounts of packets and after 12+ hours of looking in a terminal, I wanted it in readable form.

Rename files in batch

Determine command type (alias, keyword, function, builtin, or file)
Prints a string indicating whether a command is an alias, keyword, function, builtin, or file. I have used this in my BASH scripts to allow an external parameter to define which function to run, and ensure that it is a valid function that can indeed be run.
