Does that put them in one single directory or nested as I'd prefer it to be nested.

Or another way I could do it would be to make a complete copy and then delete all but what I want, which is the zip & 7z files.
#32
I've had a look and they're not worth keeping, I thought they might be PDF's or epub's but they're just HTML's
I've removed them.

BTW, there are no duplicates .. only the repos, and their backups (that end with .save).

So, to see if they're all needed, what's the command I use to get a list of the programs they update?
#34
I'm having problems with the mv command in terminal.
Basically what I want to do is similar to a copy but only a certain file type and keeping the same directory structure.

Re the number of PPA's, no not really, I noticed that too, arent there a lot identical, can we get rid of the unnecessary ones while were at it?

I love your reply to my question Mark, it made me laugh.

Anyway, the books/packages were

reference book for Debian users and system administrators
Free Python book for experienced programmers (zh translation)
book for learning Python 3
Hardware Book
free Ubuntu book for beginners

If you go into Synaptic and copy the titles, you should see  each one or just type in 'book' and they will show up in the list.
#37
I installed some 'books' from Synaptic but cant find them anywhere?
Does anyone know where they get 'installed'?
#38
It was the power cable, more precisely, the bit that plugs into the laptiop, it's not a very good fit, slightly loose.

Linux Support / Problem removing a source
November 17, 2018, 01:42:38 PM
I'm trying to remove some sources which are causing problems but I am unable to.
The source I'm trying to remove is 'owncloud'

Ive used
grep ^ /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*
To get a list of sources, but when I use Discover to list the sources, 'owncloud' is not there.

I get; (I created a gap of a couple of lines so that what I'm trying to remove is easily seen, near the bottom)

I don't know what to do to get rid of the entries.
#40
Yep, great news, but sadly, the lptop has just packed in, it won't power up with the mains power connected. So it looks like another trip to the dreadded PC World...
#41
Since getting the laptop back there's been quite a few updates and the wireless problem seems to have fixed itself!!!
#42
No, the others you see are what the laptop is picking up from other houses, mine is the first one, SKYA6E85

When it goes off, does running
sudo rfkill unblock all
bring wireless back ?
No, but it stops trying to constantly connect and report no wireless connection.

This is the result of me allowing wireless back on
