sed command problem [SOLVED]
« on: February 14, 2014, 11:52:44 am »

If I have

Code: [Select]
sed -i 's/#autologin=linaro/autologin=linaro/g' /etc/lxdm/default.conf

but I need the entire sentence wich contents "#autologin=linaro" to be replaced (and not only the string "#autologin=linaro") ... what would be the most simple and transparent way for doing that?



sed -i "3c\autologin=linaro" default.conf

It has to be in third sentence though, but no matter as soon as no one messes to much with files.
