This snap was created by the Ubuntu Podcast community. We would be grateful if you could join the "Ubuntu Podcast" collective for this search so we can "win", but this is optional. Please also give the Ubuntu Podcast a listen in your podcatcher or at the UbuntuPodcast Website (https://ubuntupodcast.org/), and maybe join The Ubuntu Podcast Telegram chatroom (https://ubuntupodcast.org/telegram/).
You can tell the program to run for a specified number of minutes, after which it will wait to finish the current task before quitting:
superperms timeLimit 120 team "Ubuntu Podcast"
This would tell the program to run for 120 minutes and then quit, after it has finished its current task.
You can also enforce a stricter time limit, using the option timeLimitHard:
superperms timeLimitHard 120 team "Ubuntu Podcast"
With this the program will run for 120 minutes and quit, within about 5 minutes of that quota, even if it is in the middle of a task.
A single client will use one CPU core, so if you want to dedicate more CPU time to the search you need to run the client multiple times - the standard is to run one client per CPU core in your PC.
This app will eat batteries on a laptop or tablet computer so it is advisable not to run this on such devices if they are not plugged-into a stable power outlet. The search will also produce a lot of heat.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install superperms, simply use the following command:
