comment How to setup passwordless SSH access for root user
You're misunderstanding me. I know the difference between SSH and sudo. The problem is that I'm unable to ssh using root@machine. Using my "normal" account and adding it to my sudoers file would accomplish the same thing, but I was trying to do it solely through SSH. This is possible in Redhat based distros. I take your answer to mean this is not possible in Debian based distros.

Unfortunately, this fix gets wiped out after each reboot/login. How do you persist the synclient setting across logins?

comment Gnome shell weather extension is not showing correct weather information
Thanks. Although it's weird the "new" applet does not have the ability to enter your location directly, whereas the "old" one did.

comment How do you create a custom application launcher in Gnome Shell?
Thanks. The only problem I ran into, which the docs don't mention, is that the file has to be executable if you place it in ~/Desktop. Otherwise it just shows up as an ordinary text file and isn't launchable or rendered with the right icon.

comment How do I maximize the sound volume on a Macbook Pro in GNOME Shell?
Unfortunately, alsa mixer shows everything at 100% regardless of whether or not Sound Settings shows volume at 100% or 150%.

comment How do I maximize the sound volume on a Macbook Pro in GNOME Shell?
This isn't the issue. I know how to use System Settings to increase volume beyond 100%. What I want is for 100% to actually be the true 100% so when I use the volume key to increase volume, it doesn't decrease volume. e.g. If I set it to 150%, and then press the "increase volume" key, the volume goes down to 100%.
