comment How, in a script, can I determine if a file is currently being written to by another process?
@fred.bear to wait until a file exists, replace the if-statement with this: if [ -f test.odf ]. (bash script can be so cryptic sometimes...)

comment Why is a virtual terminal “virtual”, and what/why/where is the “real” terminal?
This is a bit random and hasn't got a lot to do with Linux, but none the less: If you'd like to learn some of the very basics of how a computer actually works, have a listen to twit.tv/sn - episodes 233, 235, 237, 239 and 241. A series on "how computers work from the absolute basics", where basic means "low level". Not a lot of people know this stuff, it's great fun.

Done that. :-) I hope it's not terrible style - haven't bothered to read up on best practices. It works well anyway.

comment Why is my keyboard gets suddenly locked?
Just as an aside: the GM965 has some of the best drivers of any chipset. I'm quite confident to say there will be nothing wrong with graphics drivers.

comment Application windows do not fit on the screen
Well, on my system it works like a charm. But of course you wouldn't want to use it daily. It makes your screen look terrible, because there just aren't enough pixels. It also makes everything incredibly sluggish. I use for testing in development, works fabulously. For an emergency solution, it's absolutely brilliant. Some people on omgubuntu report that it didn't work for them, which - i guess - has to do with graphics drivers. I have a lovely Intel graphics chip, no problems there.

comment Application windows do not fit on the screen
Yes you can :-) omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/11/… Obviously, it's more of a toy (or a developer's tool), and a bit impractical for daily use. (this doesn't work on some graphics chips apparently)

comment How can I connect USB to TV (via AV port)
Please add a picture of what the cable looks like to your post. You will probably find one with google image search: it'd be very helpful.
