    sort --unique not working properly

    Well, had to download dos2unix and try it. That did the trick. Then I had to add a test to see if dos2unix would be on the system and add an installation if it wasn't. I also went through the script and reorganized to make it more efficient and orderly and managed to remove some lines of script...

    sort --unique not working properly

    I was leaning that way. After trying some other options including another new one for me 'tr' with no success, I broke down, installed dos2unix and used it with success. That was the item! Then I played a bit and came up with a way to test for d2u on the system, then inserted an installation if...

    sort --unique not working properly

    Thanks. I tried adding a couple lines of sorts through the script. I also tried piping through uniq as well as using the --unique switch in sort. There was the possibility of a few trailing spaces and I'd already trimmed them. I'm leaning toward the EOL being the problem. If it is, then I'll...

    sort --unique not working properly

    Foist off, a little intro. I played with DOS batch files back in the early 80s so I'm not only out of practice but I'm switching script language from batch to bash. Yeah, this is my first foray into the world of bash after using Linux for just shy of 15 years. I'm downloading, merging and...

    What browser do you use

    Chrome, which I use maybe once every few months, mainly to remind myself why I don't use it regularly. Chromium, a standby for some web pages that just show better. Firefox ESF and Firefox just fer. Opera with VNC enabled for those out of house experiences and I've got it set as my default...

    Visually Challenged? Tweak Your Linux - Tips From Wizard

    We'll play around a bit ... with this material of course! I'm going to guess that part of any problems come about because of the differences between dynamic and static web design. Static is phasing out because of all the different devices used, but there's still a crap load of it out there. If...

    Visually Challenged? Tweak Your Linux - Tips From Wizard

    KGill, for my wife, low contrast with darker text on a not white background works best for her. For example, any text color from black to dark blue on a light blue or gray background works best. High contrast tires her eye. We'll be taking a good long look at Stylus and seeing what all it can do.

    International volunteer rant

    I'm doing very well with LMDE and my tweaks. My privacy isn't the issue, it's my refusal to be assimilated and reduce my privacy, give some (all) of it to 'them'.

    Hard of Hearing 'n Slight of Sight tips 'n tricks

    Gonna toss this out there for discussion and comparison. WDYD - > What Do You Do? I'm getting to that age where most people think I'm Canadian. No offense to the Canucks here, but I tend to say "Eh?" a lot. Hey, it's cheaper than hearing aids! What are the tricks some of you other HoH folks...

    International volunteer rant

    I'm used to Clarkie, got that quite a bit. I'm from solid Scots blood, so it might be because of that! I haven't heard anything from Rob for ages. He used to be one of my friends on Fakebook. I'll have to check and see if he's still there. Sonar and another one from South America with ... I...

    International volunteer rant

    I've thought a few times about a persistent USB, trimmed of most of the things I wouldn't need and use it for times like this. I was a HVAC service tech until about 12 years ago, then, because my back couldn't handle hauling equipment and tools up and down ladders and stairs, specially for...
