  • The above was done using the i386 flashplayer plugin, and was installed on a AMD64 machine running an AMD64 kernel and AMD64 programs. the resulting plugin install ultimately didn't work for swiftfox (but worked for iceweasel) without also covering it with a nspluginwrapper which took a bit of fenangaling to get to work (lots of apt-getting) but it is a nice feature to be able to trick installers that think you need i386 into running on a amd64, or at least attempting to run on amd64.

  • This is useful when you want to copy a file and also force a user, a group and a mode for that file. Note: if you want to move that file instead of copying it, you can use install -o user -g group -m 755 /path/to/file /path/to/dir/ && rm -f /path/to/file which will remove the file only if the install command went fine.

    install -o user -g group -m 755 /path/to/file /path/to/dir/

  • - for .xsession use - Advantages of running a urxvt daemon include faster creation time for terminal windows and a lot of saved memory. You can start new terminals as childs of urxvtd by typing urxvtc. Another advantage is, that background jobs are always owned by the urxvtd and will survive as long the daemon is running.
