If you ever wondered what that mysterious ISO file you downloaded two
years ago is,
and don’t want to burn the image, you can view details of the volume
with a simple command:
$ isoinfo -d -i filename.iso
You’ll be given details like the volume size, if the image file is a
bootable one and other valuable information.
It might just be that comes a time when you’ll need a terminal window
that has no menu bar,
no title bar or scroll bar. Just a plain and simple terminal window.
Install Eterm and start it with
$ Eterm -O –buttonBar no –scrollBar no -x -f WHITE -g 100×15+30+900
This will set a white foreground for the terminal and draq a
100×15 screen at position 30 (X axis) and 900 (Y axis).
Terminator. No, not the Arnold movie. Terminator is a new GNOME-terminal-based terminal
with one very awesome feature. It has paned view. OK, so it can’t do tabs.
Paned view is better than tabs. You can see things side-by-side without messing about
trying to resize two terminals to both use up all of the space on the screen but still not overlap.
It’s all there at a glance.
Take a look:
That’s just a small sample one so it fits on here. I find it really useful to have it fullscreen, split into a few panes. Each pane is SSH’d into a different box. I use Compiz’s “annotate” plugin to mark in front of the panes which is which, so I don’t get confused.
If you’re interested in giving it a try, just do a
$ sudo apt-get install terminator
To find out more about your system’s temperature, install acpi. Then do a simple
to get a listing similar to this one:
shrinivasan@shrinivasan-laptop:~$ acpi -V
Battery 0: Discharging, 93%, 02:55:55 remaining
Battery 0: design capacity 4611 mAh, last full capacity 4605 mAh = 99%
Adapter 0: off-line
Thermal 0: ok, 36.0 degrees C
Thermal 0: trip point 0 switches to mode critical at temperature 100.0 degrees C
Thermal 0: trip point 1 switches to mode passive at temperature 95.5 degrees C
Thermal 1: ok, 41.0 degrees C
Thermal 1: trip point 0 switches to mode critical at temperature 127.0 degrees C
Cooling 0: LCD 8 of 15
Cooling 1: Processor 0 of 10
Cooling 2: Processor 0 of 10
You can search Google.com from the Linux command line without using a CLI web browser like lynx or Elinks.
All you need is the curl and html2text packages installed. Then you issue the following command:
curl -A Mozilla http://www.google.com/search?q=Linux |html2text -width 80
where you can replace Linux with another keyword of your choice.
The results will be displayed in your console application with a width of 80. 🙂
arulalan@arul-desktop:~$ curl -A Mozilla http://www.google.com/search?q=Linux |html2text -width 80

You can do this by installing cpulimit. You can limit a certain
running application either by name or by process ID:
cpulimit -e firefox -l 30
This won’t let Firefox go beyond a 30% CPU usage limit.
If you’d rather go by process, you can do it like this:
cpulimit -p 3493 -l 40
