Glad to hear it, and glad to hear that the instructions were good. I pride
myself on my documentation. :)

Wow!
There is a lot of my questions answered there. Without the full example
I would have been trapped by the chmod.
It works great.

Most of the time, a distribution's version of youtube-dl is out of date
anyway. It's just a python script, so you can download its source and use
it.

wget https://yt-dl.org/downloads/2014.08.10/youtube-dl

This should bring you the script.

Now put it in your path. Standard would be to either put it in
/usr/local/bin or your own $HOME/bin. $HOME means your home directory.

Meh, some distros don't look in $HOME/bin as a path, so let's put it into
/usr/local/bin

sudo mv youtube-dl /usr/local/bin
sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl

Then use it.

Find a video you like on youtube, copy the url and then

youtube-dl <url>

Re: [LINUX_Newbies] Some Linux Devs need help...

 

I did not multipost this because I don't follow the other groups.
I installed RoboLinux last week and except for a couple of install questions that confused me, it was up and running as advertised. The target machine is a Dell XPS 210 (duel core)with a new 1T hard drive.  I selected Firefox as the browser and was up watching Nixie Pixel Youtubes with out tinkering.  I frequently update/upgrade from the command line with what ever distro I am using, no problems ever.

I download and save a lot of tutorials on youtube so one of my first objectives was to find a downloader for that task.

http://www.tecmint.com/install-youtube-dl-command-line-video-download-tool/
Shows a script that I have tried without success:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install youtube-dl

It responds that "E: Package 'youtube-dl' has no installation candidate"

If anyone would care to join in they are welcome. I warn you, I work slowly!

It sure gets tiring to find a Linux Distro that works fine while running Live, install seems to go fine, but updating breaks printing. The last embarrassment occurred when a Windows user needed a print-out...not a good demo moment folks! Zorin 9 Core-64-bit was the offender this time. Previously, it was RoboLinux 64-bit, that was a freebie in February 2014.

Zorin tells people not to update and blames Ubuntu, maybe Ubuntu blames Apple, who took on the printing engine, I wonder if they blame HP, etc.? Please someone help make Linux even better than it is...
By the way, Mint can print from Live DVD, but not use my HP scanner...

Re: [LINUX_Newbies] I hate passwords

Thank you but I do not know what "typing into ward processing" means. I AM a newbie at Linux - I did do some Google searching for that term with no results that helped. I understand no way that any "copy and paste" from anything could eliminate an operating system requirement for password use. Maybe that is some kind of program that inserts a string with a keystroke .Donno - but thanks anyway.


    They're suggesting that you type your password into a text editor, and leave the window open. Any time you need the password, you can just copy and paste it.

Thanks a lot - it doesn't help this real newbie much - beyond my capabilities. But it appears to be a way to make sure your password is not too simple ( although it's mentioned that passwords can be reduced to one character- if so , the reasoning is beyond me )


    If you are a newbie, then you should NOT be logging in as root; a typo can screw up your whole installation.

    What are the password requirements on your flavor? On Linux Mint, I can make passwords any 8 characters, like typing the letter "x" 8 times.
