Well, I always forget about small tricks on get something done on linux and sometimes even when I keep it locally, I forget about where the heck they are and search them again. But these small tips are just so tiny that they cannot be kept as articles. So now I will keep everything here so I won’t forget about them.

Give sudo password a star

You first visudo, then append ,pwfeedback on the line Defaults env_reset, and then it’s done.

How to display Asian character poroperly in Antergos

I tried multiple ways of installing Chinese font like ttf-arphic-uming, adobe-source-han-sans-otc-fonts and noto-fonts-cjk. This packages solved the problem in system, but not in browsers like Chrome and Firefox.

Reference: this post

  1. Remove ttf-google-fonts(Google Web Font)
  2. Install one of them: ttf-arphic-uming, adobe-source-han-sans-otc-fonts, noto-fonts-cjk
  3. rebuild the font cache using sudo fc-cache -f -v to regenerate font cache.

To keep it safe, Here is a Ubuntu font config:

Font Location Font Name
Window Titles Cantarell Bold
Interface Ubuntu
Documents Sans
Monospace Ubuntu Mono
