(1)To load new files in separate windows
If you have a file named ‘first.txt’ loaded already in VIM, then use ‘:split second.txt’ to load another file named ‘second.txt’ in a separate window—IM will split the screen horizontally and load the second file. You can use ‘:vsplit’ to split the screen vertically. ‘Ctrl+w’ can be used to switch between the windows.
(2)Check your processor and OS architecture
Here is how to find out whether the installed OS as well as the CPU are of 64-bit or 32-bit.
Given below is the command that will output the details of the OS installed:
$ uname -m
output: - x86_64 [if 64-bit]
To know about the processor, run the following command:
$ lshw -class processor | grep width
output: - width: 64 bits
- width: 32 bits
Note: install lshw if it is not already installed on your system.
(3)Let your Linux system welcome you
Issue the following script and name it "welcome.sh "
echo “Hi Savan you are welcome today is “ | festival --tts date| cut -d” “ -f 1-3 | festival --tts
Now put the command sh welcome.sh at start-up. This will allow the script to run every time you log in to your system. Once done, restart your system to hear the message that is written in the Echo command.
The festival command is used to change the text to voice. You can use this command in many ways according to your creativity. Do remember to check that you have festival installed before trying this tip.
