comment Chrome 43 DPI Low Resolution
Also worth mentioning is that updates kill this every now and then for some reason. I think this is the case at least. My changes disappeared recently and had to do this a second time.

What it really should do is that if you click the AppIndicator it should scan then. I think that is what the Apple guys arrived at. I have to think someone would have forked this and added this functionality.

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.

That doesn't remove it from the Dash. Somehow a reindex still needs to happen.

I am getting this also on Ubuntu 14.04 with VLC 2.1.6. Weird, this was a straight VP9 download from YouTube.
