Good news, everyone!
Installing duf (the better df alternative) on Ubuntu and various other distros is now as easy as running:
sudo snap install duf-utility
Yeah, same. I guess from a user's perspective it's alright, but I can't shake off the feeling it suffers a bit from the not-invented-here syndrome at Canonical.
@fribbledom just wrote a singularity definition file for duf using alpine x86_64 latest. worked on second edit. about 6MiB in size.
@fribbledom Great! Just so you know, duf is now one of my standard utilities on any system I intend to do any real work, Linux or Windows, alongside other great ones like exa, bat, and ripgrep.
@fribbledom I was going to check out your snap, but got this fun pop up. WTF cookies do they need!?!
@fribbledom I added an alias to enable colors in xterm:
alias duf='TERM=xterm-color duf -theme light'
BTW: When 'duf-utility' is installed via 'snap' in Ubuntu it shows some local mounts as "squashfs", assuming since it's running within a sandbox (snap), also got this error:
"ERROR: ld.so: object 'libgtk3-nocsd.so.0' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (failed to map segment from shared object): ignored.".
After installing from source 'duf' works fine.
