comment How can I bind a key to cycle between workspaces?
Save it anywhere as a text file, and mark it as executable (chmod +x filename). Go to "System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts". In this menu, create a new shortcut, give it whichever name you like and point it to your saved file. For instance, if you save the file as "script.sh" in your home folder, what you have to write in the "Command" input field is: "/home/yourusername/script.sh".

Indeed. I was actually trying to use the name of each workspace (D1 and D2) instead of their numbers (0 and 1). Should have read further down the man page. =)

comment Running a .desktop file in the terminal
Interesting, I was wondering why it caused the tab to close.

Damn =/. Guess that solves it.

For the moment I've added a second sed to remove any arguments. But I think there might be a more "natural" way to run it.

comment Running a .desktop file in the terminal
This gives the best result so far, but it produces undesirable behavior sometimes. It happens whenever the "Exec=" line has an argument like %u or %i. Bash tries to pass that string as a regular argument. For instance, doing grep '^Exec' firefox.desktop | sed 's/^Exec=//' opens Firefox with a tab that loads www.%u.com.

Thanks for the answer, but compiz is not an option (unfortunately). I'm using a really low end computer here.

comment Can I set the power indicator to show battery percentage instead of time remaining?
Which version are using? I'm using lucid, and it's the exact opposite for me. It only show the percentage, and not the time remaining, though I'd like to see both.

comment How do I find out which process is eating up my bandwidth?
Yeah, I had to read the manual to understand what all those numbers where about. Given that they're all averages, they were all pretty low (like, always below 10KB, instead of above 100KB). This problem happened to me twice in the last week. So, if it shows up again, I'll check the numbers again, and I'll check the lo interface too. I'm connected at work, and wouldn't be surprised if their local network is causing this abnormal traffic.

I ran it as sudo iftop -B -i eth0, that means it was only looking at my internet traffic right? It didn't occur to me that the system monitor might be checking other interfaces as well. Ironically, the problem disappeared 10 minutes ago (after many hours), so I can't check iftop again for now. What does the lo interface stand for?

I'm accepting the answer since it does answer the original question. But I'll be nice if I can figure out what's going on here.

Thanks, the command seems to work, but I'm getting strange results. System monitor claims a total of around 180KB/s, while iftop claims a total of barely 1 kilobyte per second.
