If you don't remember your root password, then "sudo anything" won't work. But you can reset a lost root password by logging in single-user mode or resetting the password file through a boot disk. See those procedures here: http://linuxgazette.net/107/tomar.html Of course, these methods re...

With Synaptic, you select any package that you want and click to reinstall it, then move on to the next package that you require and similarly click to reinstall, and so on. At the end of your selection, click file and select generate script option. This can then be used in your fresh OS to downloa...

Does the script include packages that were installed initially when the operating system was installed, or just those installed by the user?

I see there's a new revision to Google Chrome in Synaptic: Version 38.0.2125.111-1

After the last Chrome debacle, I'm afraid to install it. Has anyone tried this out on MX-14?

I know I'm kind of late to the party, but here's my 2¢ FWIW: Using dd or any other copy/cloning method will just duplicate any errors that are on the "suspect" drive -- assuming you're lucky enough to be able to recover any data. HDDs don't always fail gradually or "gently" like ...

Re: Bash command history in the terminal How do you show that? I'm assuming he's talking about the history you get when pressing the up arrow key (goes back in history), or down arrow key (goes forward). The ~/.bash_history file contains the full history. You can also search your bash history using...
