Generic Linux Notes
Right Click Not in Gnome
Apparently Gnome switched to using 2 fingers for right click by default. This can be reverted to having a regular ol’ right click:
$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad click-method areas
XFS Filesystem Repair
I’ve encountered situations where
xfs_repair -n reported an unmounted filesystem as both mounted and readable.
The easiest workaround seems to be to actually have the volume mounted, but mounted in read-only. If that doesn’t work, the all-knowing search engine will need to be further consulted.
# mount -r -o remount /dev/sdbroken1 # xfs_repair -n /dev/sdbroken1
Sorting ps by Memory Utilization
Found at the following URL (I wish I could say it was from looking through the man pages, but alas, no): https://linuxconfig.org/using-ps-command-to-sort-output-based-on-ram-usage
$ ps au --sort=-%mem $ ps auk-%mem
Excellent reference on interpreting vmstat output
