  • How to Switch to Another User Account without providing its Password using the “su” command on Ubuntu – VITUX

    If you want to do a task with a particular user account that you are not currently logged in to, you usually change your user account for some time to complete that task. However, if you want to save yourself the whole process of changing users, you can also do it through the Linux terminal. In both cases, however, you’ll need to enter the login password for that user account before you can access it.

    Fortunately, you can even bypass this password on Linux if you don’t know it or don’t want to enter it for some reason. You can do this by using the “su” command to switch from your current user account to your desired user account without entering its password. The whole process will become clearer to you if you go through the method of switching to another user account without specifying the password using the “su” command in Ubuntu 20.04.

  • How to edit themes in Gnome 40+ - Tutorial

    You can't edit Gnome themes, no more, someone wrote me in an email. And I replied, what what. The person pointed out that the instructions I laid out in my Gnome theme edit guide no longer worked. Specifically, the gtk.css file, which is supposed to contain the necessary clauses to make theme changes, like font color for instance, simply weren't there anymore.

    I decided to explore this further. I powered on CentOS 9 Stream, which comes with a modern version of the Gnome desktop environment, and I looked what gives under the Adwaita theme folder. Indeed, the old method of customization seems no longer applicable. Which is why we need this tutorial. Begin, we must.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
