I remember in the past years to have read controversial discussions on whether or not it is necessary to still be in certain groups as a user.
I take my latest /etc/group update as an opportunity to re-validate the question in the light of the latest systemd developments.
Thus, is it required as a user to be in groups such as adm, wheel, network, video, storage?

I plan on taking the course on August 1st, but $250 is a bit steep for me to pay. I know edx.org says that if you are going to be using the certificate professionally (resume, applications, etc) then you need the verified certificate. Would it be possible to just list the honor code certificate in the applications/resume instead though?submitted by Jigsah
The company then assessed "Microsoft’s alleged Android portfolio and commercially scored the U.S. granted patents using M-Cam’s commercial asset underwriting systems. This assessment measured the commercial strength and transferability of each patent. Commercial patents are linked directly with cash flows and may have a basis for licensing."

I have been running KDE’s upcoming Plasma 5 on a test system for a while now. Today I gathered some courage to install it on a production machine which I use to files stories on The Mukt, and also as my primary computer. So far everything seems to be working fine.

Hey r/linux maybe you can help me. Sorry if this is the wrong place for this, but this isn't specific to one distro so I thought I'd post it here. I'm dual-booting for the first time ever and don't want to screw everything up.
I want to install Win7 and linux+XFCE (either Debian Jessie or Mint, probably Debian), but I want the linux partition encrypted. I don't want Win7 to be encrypted as I use it for gaming. All the tutorials I've found focus on full-disk encryption, which is a pain in the ass and not really what I want/need.
I did manage to find two tutorials and think I have a decent grasp of what I need to do (see below). If worse comes to worse I can just encrypt my Home folder in Mint (I don't recall the Debian installer offering this option), but I'd rather have the whole Linux partition encrypted if it's not prohibitively complicated. Thanks
Here are the tutorials. The Debian install seems a bit more complicated than the Ubuntu install, but I think I can handle it. Would these be good to follow for what I plan to do?RoboLucas

Reddit: How to run command inside screen for Minecraft server through a bash script? - Read post for more info
Trying to create a simple bash script for my Minecraft server that attaches itself to the screen, and runs a command in the MC server itself (such as 'stop', or 'say [message]'). Simple as that, yet I cannot figure out how to do this.
