@AlanShutko cute hack, but using pgrep obviously is much nicer. :-)

comment Cannot execute java command on Ubuntu
I have never ever heard that write permissions would be necessary for execution, in particular not when there is an execute bit.

@Dolda2000 well spotted. Anyway, his installation is badly screwed...

@mmc18 now uninstall it again, so you don't screw up the permissions, and install the Ubuntu openjdk package instead. So you get automatic security updates.

Well, a regular user cannot write to system executables on Linux anyway. Unless some player screwed up badly that is and keeps on installing software as user. Then there are SELinux and AppArmor to harden. But all that "behaviour analysis" of AV software mostly does not work. It exists, but it largely does not work. What they can detect is new variations of old viruses (mostly generated in malware toolkits, that is)

comment How to update python version in linux terminal
Your default python the probably still is python 2.4 - this is not bad, as some application might expect it to be that way. Try running python2.7 if you want python 2.7

As for tripwire. I was running it for some years on a server, but found it unmaintainable in the long run, at least if you constantly keep your system up to date. It made sense when you did only yearly updates, but if the system constantly evolves, you end up constantly updating the signatures, and probably won't notice a modification. Instead, such a system should use e.g. an off-site debsums database to automatically keep in sync with upgrades.

No, that is not a good idea. Because you do not get automatic security updates anymore. Stick to the distribution version.
