  1. https://www.gnu.org/software/bash/manual/html_node/Command-Substitution.html I'm trying to do a command substitution. The zenity code by itself works, what I'm trying to do is take the output of the code and set it as $GIMP. @WereCatf
  2. Sorry, you are right. I checked again and: GIMP=$" " gimp "Known as GIMP, GNU Image Manipulation Program is a free and open source photo editor." \ does not in fact work. I was confusing the automatic output of zenity and my own echo command. Is there something wrong with this ^. I've tried putting parenthesis around the code like this: GIMP=$( " " gimp "Known as GIMP, GNU Image Manipulation Program is a free and open source photo editor." \ ) But is gives errors, whether I add a space in between it or not. This sadly also does not work.
  3. My point in saying "I have tested this and have confirmed that when I select the checkbox next to "gimp" it changes the value of the variable to "gimp" " is just to indicate that the problem is the if then statement and not the variable. @WereCatf
  4. I am creating a bash script that installs programs and themes on Ubuntu Linux. Currently my script goes a little something like this: GIMP=$" " gimp "Known as GIMP, GNU Image Manipulation Program is a free and open source photo editor." \ if [[ $GIMP == "gimp" ]] then sudo apt-get install $GIMP else echo "did not install gimp" fi I am using ZENITY, which lets me open a text dialog box with columns, rows and check boxes. The first part is my variable, where sets the variable GIMP as nothing or as "gimp". I have tested this and have confirmed that when I select the checkbox next to "gimp" it changes the value of the variable to "gimp" The problem is that the if then statement is not working at all in the way it should, it always echos "did not install gimp".
  5. thank you for telling me welcome!

  6. Thanks, but I think I'm looking for something new. I buy a lot of used things and have had problems with laptops in the past (problems with batteries, displays etc.).
  7. I am looking at buying a very cheap laptop, and am looking at Chromebooks. My plan is to install a lightweight Linux distribution like Lubuntu or any other (preferably Debian based) distribution. My budget is anything under $200 and it should have an X64 processor because I do not want to deal with Linux on ARM. I do not have very much experience with laptops, any recommendations?
  8. Thank you so much! I just can't tell if the IP is the source or the destination because I've never seen an IP like "0.0.0.0" Also when I try to add the filter it becomes red and I can not enter it. I have replaced all the Xs with the IP and none of them work.
  9. I have an a on echo dot generation 2, and for a project I would like to track the package with Wireshark. I don't know much about Wireshark, but was thinking that somehow I could find the IP of the echo and filter the traffic on my network so I could focus on that. How can I do this, and if not is there a better way?
  10. I usually press my mouse button in and drag to scroll down my pages on discord and chrome, I recently switched to Ubuntu and it doesn't work at all. I tried three different mouses and nothing works. Is it a setting in chrome or Ubuntu that I need to change? My scroll wheel is not smooth and it is annoying so I have to use this method or use the scroll bar so it would be helpfull to find out how to use this again.
