    I am still fairly new to the Linux world. I’m using Ubuntu 16.10 and Gnome. I REALLY appreciate useful and informative articles such as this one both here at Tecmint and other, similar sites around the ‘net.

    Look, I don’t like to be a nodge, and I’m not really a grammar Nazi, but there are some significant problems with the grammar in this piece. I’m also acutely aware that we did not all grow up with English as our native tongue, but don’t all of you at Tecmint think someone should proofread your article before you post them?

    Alternatively, there are some very good to excellent grammar checking tools now available, many of which are free. I’m just sayin’ this because what you all write is great and I don’t want anyone thinking less of your works because of poor grammar or spelling, ‘K?

      Grammarly reports an “advanced issue” in your text (“Alternatively, … spelling”). Why don’t you put your money where your mouth is?

    Flexible zenity timer: http://user.cavenet.com/rolandl/timer.txt
    FTP frontend for your file manager: http://user.cavenet.com/rolandl/ftp-user.txt
    Both harness subshells, bash code that is surrounded by parentheses. If your shellscript needs to do 2 things at once, like update a logfile and monitor that logfile, you will need at least one subshell.

    hey! I happen to find this blog today (apr 08, 2014) because of Tarunika’s rsync article (https://www.tecmint.com/rsync-local-remote-file-synchronization-commands/). So, i continued browsing through your site and found this article.

    Just a few months back I wrote and published a simple show clock (date, time) shell script that uses Zenity. Please find it here: http://thatmaheshrs.wordpress.com/2014/02/09/show-date-and-time-in-xubuntu-as-well-as-other-linux-distros/
