Useful Terminal Commands.
#8
Good post, I like these because I always come across a command or two that I've either forgot about or didn't know about.

I'll add a few commands to the list that have served me well over the years:

- To edit GRUB file (16.04/Mint 18x) Very useful for kernel edits/splashcreen edits/plymouth edits/SSD edits. Substitute gedit with whatever text editor you use.

sudo gedit /etc/default/grub


- Filter out private info from lshw command using:

sudo lshw-sanitize


- Trouble installing a program with dependencies, use this command: it checks for and install the required dependencies

sudo apt-get install -f


- Remove unneeded leftover residual files - I run this after kernel swaps normally

sudo apt-get autoremove


- If you install a bunch of stuff using PPA's and want an easy method of deleting them: for example, removing "someppa"

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:someppa/ppa


- Search for and install updates without input use this command:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt upgrade -y


- Having trouble with net man or doing some editing and need the edits to appear, then run this command:

sudo service NetworkManager restart


- VPN's are hugely popular these days. If your distro doesn't come packaged with it then install OpenVPN

sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn-gnome

These are a few basic commands that maybe someone will find useful.

Have fun
