In Topic: Terminal notification of new email

19 September 2017 - 08:16 PM

I was also going to send email to you, so that you will know that it works for external email (like from gmail) as well. If you feel that is not necessary then that is entirely up to you.

Cannot receive from outside, I configured postfix to send and receive only local emails ....

couple of things you could try. 


What is your email address? I will send you a question, and if you reply back then I will know this email address exists and your setup with postfix is fully functional. It will be a real world test, and no one will know what the question is-- only the sender, and its recipient. Give a different answer, and maybe someone else is trying to reach you at the same time, which may not be a bad thing.


After adding those lines in .bashrc, did you source it? Source it with this command (for the sake of anyone reading this) ". ~/.bashrc" without the double quotes. And yes, that is a dot followed by a space.


And I will only ask this once: Must it be root?


Well ...... I did not undestood what do you mean .....


I will explain more in details and give some other clues


I found in internet a script to put in .bashrc that alert me with an email when someone login ( as root or as user )

I put the script in root's .bashrc and user's .bashrc.The email for both login are now sent to my user mbox. 


The script works because the email arrives but I was waiting during my terminal works the messagge


"You have new mail"


but for those email this does not happens.


Tried to send a test email from root to my username and: the email arrives too and in this case

I have the terminal notification

In Topic: Upgrade from 2.4

I believe the ~/.e folder should be mv to ~/.e.old or similar to make sure the enlightenment moksha configuration is properly set up. You will need to reconfigure your desktop. With the other commands you are "just" over my head with respect to what it does. I would imagine the only problem you could run in to would be PPAs, if you use them, and packages that literally have no new versions built for the newer kernel/system.

so the best way is to 


apt-get dist-upgrade


for minor releases and format and install for major releases ?


Have a simple question on install major releases:


I have /home on a different partition than /, can I format just root, install new major release and reboot with old /home ?



Doing a 


dpkg --get-selections > packages_list_old
dpkg --set-selections < packages_list_old
apt-get dselect-upgrade
will restore the new system to the same state than old ?
