comment apt-get can't install/remove linux-image-4.2.0-25-generic
I tried to install jsonlint which tried to install 4.2.0-25 but failed. Since then, I cannot install or remove 4.2.0-25. It is partially installed but failed, and now I can't complete the install or remove it (P.S. I've done sudo apt-get update).

comment menu bar not visible on gnome-calculator
Hmm, does me no good since I use openbox, and my right mouse is bound to Lower. does not seem to be a command line option either. Where is the setting stored?

comment How to restore proper notification handling with gnome-session, Openbox, Cairo-dock?
but zenity --notification used to work for me as described - I got nonintrusive notifications, not dialogs. I have multiple scripts that call it.

comment Command to unmute and maximize volume?
Thanks. The commands in other answers, such as 'amixer -c 0 set Master playback 100% unmute' or 'amixer set Master unmute' did not work for me (even if I mute via 'amixer set Master mute').

comment How can I switch user in a shell and use the existing gnome display session?
Thanks, @RiccardoMurri - I left out something. From my desktop, I ssh -X somehost to login as myself and X works. From there, I want to sudo and have that command use my desktop display. But after doing ssh -X, the remote shell has DISPLAY set to a local proxy (localhost:10.0 for example) and this can't be passed to sudu (or other su userid commands). The pipeline above fails because localhost is not known to xauth. But this works: [[ xauth nextract - ${DISPLAY/localhost/$(hostname)/unix} | sudo xauth nmerge - ]] followed by sudo xcommand . I must change localhost to $(hostname)/unix for xauth

From my desktop running xubuntu, I run ssh -X otherhost. From that host, DISPLAY is "localhost:10.0". When I try xauth extract - $DISPLAY I get an error, No matches found, authority file "-" not written

comment How to automount a gvfs file system on logon
You can put the credentials in a separate file that only root can read (often non root users can read /etc/fstab and thus see userid/passwords stored there). Use credentials=/root/remove_server.credentials where that file has two lines in it, username=userid password=userids-password
