Re: Linux Security in question.

rkhunter is probably more useful to servers than desktops, but either way, installing it and just running it isn't really much use - but, use it as intended after editing the .conf file, and it can indeed be useful.

Re: Color Log Files

Yes... I tested it: What you put in your file test are, I suppose, ANSI escape sequences.

Re: Remove Errant Launcher from Menu

There's a a number of Menu Editors that can do what you want, and more - I use alacarte.

As has been said, most of the logs are meaningless to most users - the main use is for troubleshooting problems... no problems, no need to troubleshoot ;) You could just type: dmesg -T | grep -i --colour "error\|warn\|fail" into a terminal if you're curious, or if you have a problem.

Re: Unable to execute bash script from thunar

It's was a change made by Thunar devs...

You need to revert the change using XFCE Settings editor:

Have a look here. You'll need to add the /misc-exec-shell-scripts-by-default (don't miss out the leading forward slash at the start) by selecting New - Type as Boolean Value as True.
