I guess you're using Ubuntu? You shouldn't have to install any drivers because most of them are baked into the (Linux) kernel. Do you have any components (WiFi, Ethernet, ...) that don't work. Or do you expect that you will need to install them? Because, like I said that's not needed in most cases. About the manual or books. I actually don't know.

This does work for me. If using Unity on 13.10, you can achieve this with ccsm (CompizComfig Settings Manager).

12.04 Without Unity - Disable F1 and F11 Behaviour I have installed Ubuntu 12.04/64 and have completely removed Unity from it following these directions..

For connecting with a terminal that's not able to do 256 colors. It'd be far better to detect the terminal specifically with $COLORTERM. Look for gnome-terminal, xfce4-terminal, etc, and then set the$TERM variable to xterm-256color. I do it with: if [ "$COLORTERM" == "gnome-terminal" ] || [ "$COLORTERM" == "xfce4-terminal" ] then ...

This is the command history and it is a feature of the shell rather than the terminal. On Ubuntu (and a lot if not most of the other Linux distributions) the default shell for interactive use is Bash (/bin/bash). Bash keeps your history, that is a list of the last commands, at ~/.bash_histroy. When you open a shell (usually by opening a terminal) this file ...

Command history is generally stored on per-user basis in the .bash_history file in your home directory. Means, every user has its own set of commands he has executed. When multiple terminal sessions are open they may show you different commands when pressing the arrow key, but when you will close all the terminal windows the history from different terminal ...

The functionality is still there, I have it set to ctrl+e myself and use it daily. Visit Edit/Keyboard Shortcuts..., scroll down to the Terminal tree and set the Set Title keyboard shortcut. It did take me a short time to find the Edit menu in 13.10. It appears that unless you enable Show Menubar the appmenu is hidden even if you hover over it with your ...

What exactly are you trying to do? AFAIK the --tab-with-profile is for choosing a predefined terminal profile (i.e. one of the sets of application configuration settings from ls ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/). This is used for setting things like terminal font and color preferences etc. - nothing to do with the shell profile or resource file. If ...

You can switch the tabs using Ctrl+Shift+PgDn to next tabs and Ctrl+Shift+PgUp for the previous tabs. Also Alt+1 to Alt + 0 can be used to switch tabs starting from 1 to 10. Where Alt+1 is for 1st tab in terminal, Alt+2 is for 2nd tab ... Alt+0 is for 10th tab. If more than 10 tabs are opened then you've to switch using the shortcut mentioned above. i,e ...

First, you can try to start a bash shell once, to figure out if the problem is your shell. Type bash in the terminal. If arrow up history now works, you can set bash as your default shell by running the chsh command. This command will prompt you for your password, and then what shell you want to use, for example /bin/bash. If this does not work, you can try ...

To switch to the "implicit" profile: xdotool key Alt+t p Return To switch to the second profile: xdotool key Alt+t p Down Return xdotool is not installed by default in Ubuntu, so it must to be installed first. Of course, for these commands can be added custom keyboard shortcuts.

It turned out that this was a permission issue. I deleted every file in mu home directory and started XServer again with startx and it worked. I should have instead done chown -R ... and chgrp -R .... The first time I logged in, lightdm created these files and lightdm runs as root and the files created belonged to root :-(

I would suspect that you have a problem in your font configuration. Your terminal may be looking for a font that is not present, or one with badly broken kerning.

As pathetic as it sounds, this resolved itself after a reboot. I'm not sure what that means and I hate offering a resolution with such a generic solution. Maybe a reboot is necessary after removing and recreating the ~/.bash_history I'm not sure why and nowhere did I read that was a requirement. If I find out anything more specific, I will post my findings.

Yes, that's possible. I don't have any Windows computers available, so I can't test it, but it should be something like this: net rpc SHUTDOWN -C "Byebye" -f -I IP_ADDRESS -U USER%PASSWORD, where you obviously replace IP_ADDRESS, USER and PASSWORD with relevant values.
