Just to confirm, this runs the specified script as the user, so a whoami in the script will give the user name?

comment Setting nautilus-open-terminal to launch Terminator rather than gnome-terminal
Great solution. One thing: It's not really necessary to log out/in, restarting nautilus with nautilus -q is sufficient. I just proposed an edit for that.

@BrunoPereira are you sure? I just followed these instructions, and for me, the normal terminal appears.

comment Wifi disabled by hardware switch, but hardware switch doesn't help
I had the same problem a while back with a different chip. This won't work for you, but maybe you can glean something useful from it: askubuntu.com/questions/166328/…

comment Setting nautilus-open-terminal to launch Terminator rather than gnome-terminal
@nopacus this does not seem to work anymore, I still get the "normal" terminal. Maybe because of bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=159139

comment Issue Mounting NAS
could also be a problem with NFS version - ubuntu default is NFSv4 as far as I know, and some NASes (Synology, looking at you!) only support NFS3. I remember having problems with that, and falling back to samba as a consequence.

Ok, so I have activated logging on shutdown, just haven't experienced a hang on shutdown since then. I'll accept this answer.

comment How do I diagnose Hang on Shutdown?
The problem is I can't reproduce it at will, it doesn't happen on every shutdown. But that question about quiet splash is gold, I'll remove those and wait for a hanging shutdown..

comment Is there an GUI Designer for python?
The stock Ubuntu version can't generate Python code for some reason. I hope the PPA version doesn't have that problem.

comment Netbook performs hard shutdown without warning on low battery power
I had this problem once on an old laptop which I had to boot with the acpi=off option. Maybe some ACPI problem could also be blamed in your case.
