Reddit: Using Peppermint 5, almost no disk space due to 'deleting' trash items instead of 'emptying' trash.
So I was running out of space on my hard drive, and I downloaded a disk space visualizer to figure out what I could get rid of. I had a massive cache file that had grown to ~440gb. So I moved it to the trash, and then right clicked and deleted it.
Afterwards I still didn't have increased disk space, however I could not find any files taking up the space. I.e. I only have ~3gb of space after deleting the ~440gb file. I searched this problem on the internet, and apparently I should have emptied the bin instead of deleting the file. However, I can no longer find the file, how do I permanently delete it now?submitted by KuntaStillSingle

My sound has stopped working on TagPro specifically. I play it through Firefox. (I've tried playing without userscripts enabled.) I'm able to listen to YouTube videos through Firefox, which I find strange. I've attempted to mess with Alsamixer and KMixer to no avail.submitted by fishii10

So, I have an old netbook (Aspire One D257). I love netbooks, they are the perfect size for me. They have their problems though, such as low CPU/RAM, but for me the #1 problem is the small screen. 1024x600 is barely enough for firefox, and some apps won't even start without 1024x768. So, for the past few years I have been using xrandr to stretch it to 1360x768.
A few months ago, I set up a script to switch back an forth. But it was hardcoded for 1024x600 true screen res, as well as only working on 1 boosted res at a time, without editing. I have hope of getting a bigger screened netbook soonish, so I wanted to edit said script to work on it, though I didn't known what size it will be. Thus, I did lots of sed'ing, ect, and got a script that you can pass a percent number to increase, and it "should" do it for any res. It works fine for me going up to any res now (still on my 1024x600 screen), I auto start it now every boot to get a 25% boost, but I am not that great at scripting (I had to google just about every sed command :) ).
So, could anyone look at it, make sure the sed commands look sane, ect. Also, if you will notice, grabbing the newx/newy are not exactly "clean". I just don't known, much about math in scripts (damn decimal made this hard), and didn't want to require bc. Anyone known a better way to do it without bc?submitted by theredbaron1834
