comment Opera and Safari installation
It installs without error but unfortunately, Safari doesn't actually run. The window loads but is almost completely unresponsive and refuses to load any pages.

Note, killall apt-get does the same thing as your ps/kill combo.

comment Extracting zip file fails giving error need PK compat. v5.1
This fixed the problem for me. Note that even though this fixes file-roller, the unzip tool will continue to report this error, so you'll have to use 7z for normal zip/unzip.

comment How to keep alive a wifi connection on a laptop
This is essentially what I did, although my script instead checked NetworkManager's connection status, and restarted it if it reported no connection.
