Ubuntu :: Maverick Netbook Without Unity?

Oct 26, 2010

I'd like to upgrade my netbook from Lucid Netbook Edition to Maverick. However, in trying the live USB, I found Unity to be unusable. Is it possible to use Maverick and keep the interface from the Lucid Netbook Edition?

<rant>Unity is painfully slow and missing several essential features. Also, who in their right mind would make a sidebar that's reminiscent of the MacOS dock? Mixing launchers with icons for currently-open programs is brain dead.

Ubuntu Security :: HOME - /bin Location In PATH ?

Dec 1, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.04 only be dismayed to find ${HOME}/bin FIRST IN THE PATH. I blogged about it at my blog (I sudo an xterm rather than just sudoing to get a different background for the sudo'd xterm): [url]

I agree that some new user should probably not be logging on as root. But if the replacement for 'ls' is in their ${HOME}/bin/ the sudo'd shell inherits the same PATH, umask, and everything else! In general I take a dim view of a sudo only way of doing things. It seems to cause more problems than it solves for disciplined, knowledgeable users. In the case of Ubuntu it caused me to create a /root folder for root to reset the umask back from 077 which is what I use over to 022 which is what root should use. The /root/.profile of course made sure there is no /home/me/bin in the sudo'd PATH. It didn't matter because somebody is not just SETTING the file perms and is instead calculating them based off of modifications to the umask. JUST SET THEM! I ran into a problem with GRUB getting things fouled up because I was having to remove the new kernels and instead of using the command line option (much prefereable) used Synaptic Manager instead: [url]

In fhe case of an infection living in a user's file space you really should want to go in to clean it out as some other user than the user that is infected. Having said that the hackers seem to be going for the whole enchilada right off the bat. A WARNING is in order here. DO NOT USE A ROOT ACCOUNT OR SUDO FOR NORMAL TASKS! But please put ${HOME}/bin last in the PATH or preferably don't even put it in the PATH at all. Let users add it themselves if they want it. Also once hackers figure out that hijacking a sudo tty (from what I just read else-where here I would say several hackers are working on doing that right now - sendmail my ****) is a dandy way of doing things you really will need to provide for ways of cleaning a user infestation out by going at it some other way than through that infected user. A lot of Ubuntu users have only one login account, the one they created when they set the machine up.

Ubuntu :: Add PATH Variable In Root Terminal

Mar 16, 2010

I want to add a path (/usr/sys) to the global $PATH. I will use this to test commands and scripts, which I don't want to be mixed up with regular commands. I've added the path to /etc/environment. When I start a terminal session under my user account, the path is included in the $PATH variable. However, when I start a root terminal, it is not. Is there a way to to change $PATH on one place where it will also affect the root terminal, or do I have to change it on 2 locations?

General :: How To Change The PATH Variable

Mar 12, 2011

I was changing my sudoers file to give permission of using "sudo" command to all root commands, asking for the password. It works, it's fine. The problem I'm having is with the variable PATH to my user, I think.

In terminal:
normal user:


ataias@ataias-notebook:~/Downloads$ echo $PATH
super user:


root@ataias-notebook:~# echo $PATH

As many commands are in /sbin/, root can use them without writing "/sbin/" but I can't do the same cause it's not in my path.

while root do this:


shutdown -h now

I should do:


sudo /sbin/shutdown -h now

and I want to use only


sudo shutdown -h now

I want to change my user's path variable to make it equal to root's path. how to change it? I don't know many things of shell still.

Debian :: Setting PATH Environment Variable

May 19, 2015

I have been trying to change my PATH environment variable to no avail. I am using Jessie i386 with MATE. Using my .bashrc file works but not well because with subshells the modifications get repeated. I want the change to occur on login.

I tried modifying ~/.profile ~/.bash_profile /etc/profile and /etc/environment and one or two others but in no case did my change get picked up even after logging out and in again and even after rebooting. I searched the Internet and found each of the above places to make the change but they don't seem to work with Jessie.

Where do I make the necessary change?

I have downloaded java and installed it with chmod +x and then ./bin package.

General :: Sudo Path Variable Error

May 28, 2010

I'm having a strange issue with the PATH variable when running the command 'sudo su'. When executing this command the PATH variable changes. No problems there, but it changes to:


Looking at this, there are two weird entries (//sbin and //bin) which should both start '/usr' instead. I'm not sure how I've managed to change this, or how a piece of software I'm using has done it (more likely it was me I expect), but could anyone suggest which file to look in to correct it? If it makes a difference the machine is running CentOS 5.
