Ubuntu: Is a killed process's state remembered?

+1 vote

I killed a hanged "CodeBlocks IDE" process from Terminal. Now starting it again initiates a new process as shown in the output of top -- but no window shows up. What actually is messed up?

It depends to some extent on what the CodeBlocks IDE was doing when it shut down - often this sort of thing is a result of it finding locks on resources that it doesn't expect, sometimes it's simply that a child process hasn't yet died and you need to either find it or wait for the system to finish cleaning up after stopping CodeBlocks' main process.

I am wondering how - or more exactly where - umask is defined on a stock Ubuntu server system.

I have reactivated the root account. Here's the respective default umask for root and normal users:

Nomal User:

$ umask

Root User

$ umask

On RHEL/CentOS, these values are defined in /etc/bashrc and then in the individual ~/.bashrc files. How does Ubuntu handle this?

I found a reference on the web about a tablet that comes with Ubuntu installed. But couldn't find any further information.

Does this unit exist? If so, how well does it do at reading all the various epub formats?

I'm shopping for either a dedicated eReader or a tablet to use as an eReader. I've no plans to replace my desktops with a tablet. This is just for collecting various old books in one place for easy reading.

I like the physical size of the iPad Mini, but the price is a bit high for my use, I think. iPad sized units are physically larger than I would like.

Anyone know of a tool to create SVG files (or similar) using some kind of macro or command line?
For instance, if I want to draw several lines start starts at the same point, have the same length but different angles (this example is written in some kind of Basic looking pseudo code):

drawline x,y,length,0
drawline x,y,length,1.4
drawline x,y,length,2,8
drawline x,y,length,4.2
drawline x,y,length,5.6
drawline x,y,length,7.0

Or maybe even better; something like this:

For Angle=0 To 180 Step 1.4
 drawline x,y,length,angle
Next Angle

Another acceptable approach would be:

For Angle=0 To 180 Step 1.4
  drawline xStart,yStart,xEnd,yEnd
Next Angle

I have had a quick look at Inkscape but I couldnt find any kind of command line or macro programming IDE there.
