I just updated the answer to include a permanent way to set swappiness. Not sure how it got upvoted so much, I am guessing nobody tested it.

comment Can `cat` show files using code markup in colors?
This is the best, then alias cat to pygmentize -g and you are golden. In fish it is simple as funced cat... type pygmentize -g $argv... save..funcsave cat.

comment Chrome 43 DPI Low Resolution
Thanks, I was successful but I want to mention that even after killing Chrome, including don't let Chrome run in background. I had to also kill the Hangouts app as well or the changes wouldn't take.

comment How to play webm (using the VP9 codec) in VLC?
I am getting this also on Ubuntu 14.04 with VLC 2.1.6. Weird, this was a straight VP9 download from YouTube.
