How good would it be if your iPod or your favorite portable MP3 player can support FLAC format? Unfortunately not. If you have a bunch of FLAC music files that you want to bring along in your journey, the best way is to convert them into MP3 format. Luckily, this is an easy task in Ubuntu, using SoundConverter.

    SoundConverter is an application for GNOME that can take in most audio format (Ogg Vorbis, AAC, MP3, FLAC, WAV, AVI, MPEG, MOV, M4A, AC3, DTS, ALAC, MPC, Shorten, APE, SID, etc…) and convert them to WAV, FLAC, MP3, AAC and Ogg Vorbis format.

    Installing SoundConverter

    SoundConverter requires the gstreamer ugly library to encode audio files into MP3 format.

    Brief: Here are some tiny but useful Linux commands, terminal tricks and shortcuts that will save you a lot of time while working with Linux command line.

    Have you ever encountered a moment when you see your colleague using some simple Linux commands for tasks that took you several keystrokes? And when you saw that you were like, “Wow! I didn’t know it could have been done that easily”.

    In this article, I’ll show you some pro Linux command tricks that will save you a lot of time and in some cases, from plenty of frustration. Not only your friends or colleagues will ‘wow’ at you, it will also help you increase your productivity as you will need fewer keystrokes and even fewer mouse clicks.

    Cool Linux terminal tricks to save time and increase productivity

    PS: Takže finálne, potrebujete SWAP? Ak máte 4GB RAM a nepoužívate GIMP, Darktable, Krita, Wine či Virtualbox, tak ani nie, ale upravte si swappiness na nižšiu hodnotu, optimalne 1. Pokiaľ máte 8GB a viac, tak SWAP nepotrebujete.

      The swap tendancy is way to high in Linux Mint. You can reduce it by following these steps: -open a terminal en type: cat /proc/sys/vm/swappiness The tendancy is probably '60', what good is for servers but is to high for normal users  

    Príkaz v termináli:
    sudo xed /etc/sysctl.conf

    následne na koniec súboru pridajte:

    # Zníženie použitia swap na použiteľnú úroveň

    Uložte a reštartujte počítač. The rule is: 1GB RAM or more: set the swappiness to 10 Less then 1GB: set the swappiness to 1   Okamzite vypnutie pomocou prikazu: sudo swapoff -a
