Ubuntu is a free, Linux-based open source operating system with a long list of releases. When you first log in to an Ubuntu system, it is always a good idea to check the version of Ubuntu on the machine before you do anything on it. Finding which version of Ubuntu runs on your system may be essential to fix problems or seek installation guides. In this tutorial, we’ll show you several ways to find your Ubuntu version using the command line or from the graphical interface.
mv (or move) is a Unix/Linux command that moves one or many files or directories from one place to another.
mv is usually used for two purposes:
It rename a file or folder.
It moves group of files to different directory.
mv syntax and usage should be straightforward. However, when you’re learning to use Linux for the first time or when you’ve come to Linux with a solid background in another operating system, you may run into some things that it doesn’t allow.
If you’ve ever received a Directory not empty when trying to move files or directories, then this guide can help you.
Because rclone is written in Go programing language, it comes in a single binary file.
There are several ways to install it on Ubuntu. The easiest approach would be to use official package for apt or the snap package manager. Alternatively, you can install rclone using a bash install script provided by its development team.
We will walk you through all of them in this article.
Install rclone the official package from Ubuntu repositories (for Ubuntu 18.04 onwards).
Since Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver, rclone has become mature enough to become a part of the official repositories. To most users, this is the best way as you will have the most stable, well-tested version of rclone on your system. If the package manager of your choice is apt, simply run these commands in your terminal. We’ll first make sure that the system is fully updated.
Unfortunately, if you prefer snap app store, I have bad news for you : rclone development team has abandoned support for the snap package because it’s too hard to make it work properly (and peacefully) with the security confinement of snap.
Install rclone using the official bash script
If you have any problem with the package provided by Ubuntu (which is quite rare by the way), you can always install rclone using an official bash script from the development team. Open up your terminal and run the following commands :
You have to make sure curl is installed on your system :
If you see something like this, then you’re good to go:
If you see something like this, you will need to install curl first :
Command 'curl' not found, did you mean:
command 'curl'from deb curl
Try: sudo apt install
Get curl to your system :
sudo apt install curl -y
Download the bash script and let it does the install :
curl https://rclone.org/install.sh | sudo bash
