Regex for first lowercase letter

If you have en ebook that split badly a paragraph, you can try (to merge the bad splitted paragraph), as find

</p>\n\n\s\s<p>([a-z])

so that a paragraph beginning with a lowercase word be merged with the previous one.

But in Calibre editor you must check “case sensitive”, otherwise [a-z] will be read as [A-Z], and all first letters (lower and upper case) will be selected.

And as replace you could try

 \1

In this way you keep whatever letter is found with ([a-z]) in the result.

Regex for “space”

It can happen that you want replace a double space before <p>: use the \s. I.g. to replace

,</p>

<p>

You should use this find: ,</p>\n\n\s\s</p>

Regex replace tags around digits

If you would replace all <p>[some digits, such as "10", or "23", or "348"]</p>, you could use this regex code:

search: <p>(.*?\d{2})</p>

replace: <h6>\1</h6>

Indeed (.*?) is whatever, and (.*?\d{2}) is whatever number (with more than two digits).

In Kubuntu 22.04 it could be impossible to start programs such as kubuntu from kde menu while with terminal (command sudo krusader) it will remain possible.

pkexec env DISPLAY=$DISPLAY XAUTHORITY=$XAUTHORITY krusader

System not starting after upgrading to Ubuntu 22.04

After upgrading Ubuntu from 20.04 to 22.04 it can happen that you cannot start the desktop: emergency mode.

old windows releases in virtualbox

It is possible to virtualize old windows releases, such as windows 3.1, windows 98 (download here), or windows ME and the like.

But there are severe limitations: your host keyboard and mouse will be unavailable, and no link will be possible between the host and the guest system.

The reason is that in that old systems you cannot install the virtualbox guest additions.
