How do I compare contents of two directories and automatically update conflicting files and remove no longer existing files?:

Bonus if I can also either ignore 3 already existing folders

hi there, newb here. Inserting a variable into an alias?:

I have an alias set so that I can use xwinwrap without entering the full command each time. Thing is, I have multiple wallpapers, so how can I set an alias to execute the command “blablah… nameofgif.gif blah…”

Wait a sec, that probably makes me sound like an asshole;

okay, the command xwinwrap -g 1600×900 -ni -s -nf -b -un -argb – gifview -w WID clonehigh.gif -a

where I want to replace the name of the gif with whatever gif I choose in the folder each time.

right now I just type xwin as my alias and that line executes. Can I customize this alias so I can choose a gif at point of command?

tldr – Customize alias to include different file each time?

Ubuntu 18.04.3

I can’t figure out how to download Steam on Chromebook:

I have no idea what I’m doing. This is my first time even hearing of Linux, let alone attempting to download and run things on it. Also my first Chromebook experience.

I’m on a Chromebook C434. I can find more information if you need it, but I’ll be honest that I’m not much of a computer gal and don’t know anything else other than that.

I used this tutorial to set up Linux, and used this tutorial for Steam. I was able to download GIMP, so I moved onto Steam.

Unfortunately I get “Malformed line 4 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (type)” whenever I type “sudo apt update.” I tried googling solutions and trying them to no avail. So I then downloaded the Linux install off of Steam’s website. That didn’t work. It said there was no such file, or failed to retrieve app info. I tried moving the file into Linux’s folder, tried to see files through the terminal, even tried /mnt/chromeos because why not, idek what it means. I’ve been at this for 2 hours and I’m ready to pull out my hair.

Please help me.

Thank you so much.

Free, single player FPS games on Linux

Free, single player FPS games on Linux:

I’m looking for a FPS that is mainly single player with a campaign mode. I’ve played Fallout New Vegas and other similar titles, but gunplay is not the only thing that stands out about those games. I’m looking for games where shooting things is the main point of the entire game. It doesn’t have to be a Native linux port, the game just needs to run on Linux whether through Wine, Natively, Proton etc.

If there is a game like this, please do let me know. Thank you, Quasimo_to
