comment How to remove bottom panel in Gnome Shell
This does move the notifications to the upper right. Unfortunately, they're still "sticky" and don't go away until clicked...

comment How to setup passwordless SSH access for root user
Thanks. Since my goal is automated software installation, does it matter whether I add a non-root user to sudoers, or allow root log-in? There both potential security concerns, but one of them is necessary.

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%.
