comment How can I sync my home folder over network and internet?
Thanks. To avoid conflicts I might sync my laptop's home folder to a subfolder in the server (and not the server's actual home folder).

By the way, you're correct about the browser cache. Any other suggestion of folders I should exclude? My objective is to sync all personal files, profiles, settings, and configuration files.

This sounds good. I'll test it as soon as I get the server installed. One question: does the SSH protocol automatically use the shortest connection to the server? I mean: will it connect through the local network if both the client and the server are in the office network, or will it always attempt internet connections?

Thanks, but I'm already using dropbox accross platforms. What I'm looking for here is something that lets me sync many GBs of files without fees, and taking advantage of local networks.

I think your script is missing a few line breaks.

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. =)

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.
