    it is against forum rules to ask homework questions.

    and doing it in the middle of an exam is really low.

    thread reported.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    Now what? You have Linux installed and running. The GUI is working fine, but you are getting tired of changing your desktop themes. You keep seeing this "terminal" thing. Don't worry, they'll show you what to do @

    Au contraire: the Linux community will help you to learn, but not to cheat. Furthermore, no matter what we personally believe, the LinuxForums rules explicitly forbid schoolwork questions:

    Dont give us YOUR homework questions - Don't be so bloody lazy. If you post your homework for someone else to do, don't be surprised if your post is removed. Asking for a brief pointer on a *particular area* IS ok. Verbatim copying of multiple assignment questions and attaching a note at the bottom saying "please help me" is not. We were all at school/college/university once upon a time, and we know what homework questions look like.
    Your exam is designed to see what YOU know, not what the community of Linux users knows how to do.

    Re-reported, just in case.

    Do you think my instructor cares how I get my answers?Actually he encourages me to get em by asking other ppl.
    But if your reply makes you feel better thats ok with me.
    I didnt ask your opinion about cheatin or lazyness anyways.
