chown me to who you are

use the other folder permission as reference. Here, changing the permission of all files in folder to the permission similar to the parent folder.

chown –reference=. ./*

Pop up windows in kde and gnome.

I use this primarily to pop up something while I am usually working on doing some coding and need a reminder.

zenity –info –text “Remember the milk”

This pops up a window telling me what to do. Setting this with “at” helps me schedule it too.
