For systemd-based distros run sudo systemctl restart systemd-sysctl.service after creating the file instead reboot.

Hey new people, no need to say "Thanks!" again. Gists do not notify the author of any comments!

@dandv Thanks!

But seriously, one day they might, and on the assumption that the author posted this as a gist, so they themselves can reference it and share it, they will still see the thanks.

However I'd instead suggest, that people use reacts on the first thanks comment, or simply star the gist, so that the comments don't get cluttered.
