Please don't recommend this. At the very top of the file, "DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN".

comment How do I edit my resolv.conf file to fix wrong DNS problem?
This doesn't really answer the question. You're assuming NM+dnsmasq either works perfectly or doesn't work at all and needs to be removed. If everything mostly works but the OP just wants to include some extra DNS servers (e.g. google dns), then neither option is preferred, because disabling dnsmasq prevents it from detecting the local default nameserver.

Ah you're right. But it didn't update the symlinks in /usr/bin, which I'll just have to do manually.

What provides the 9.3 version of pg_dump? Dpkg says it's still being provided by postgresql-client-common, which is stuck at 9.1.

Note, piping into sudo is not recommended. On my system, that causes the sudo prompt to be hidden, making the entire command appear to hang indefinitely.

comment How do I increase the open files limit for a non-root user?
Also, note that after you edit /etc/security/limits.conf, you may have to logout and then back in before you can use the new max limit. I did this, and was baffled by ulimit -Hs still showing 1000 when I had just raised it to 1000000! Then I logged out and back in, and ulimit showed the new amount.

comment How to install firefox 20 in Ubuntu 12.04
Another +1 for Selenium compatibility. Selenium officially only supports Firefox 10, which is unfortunate but better than no tests at all. Ubuntu's firefox upgrade completely broke all my Selenium tests.
