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.

Thanks for the fix. What an idiotic default keybinding for the xbindkeys package to use...

I have a similar problem, but it's not upgrade related. The trackpad just stops working and the only solution is to restart.

This does not work. The X server has a separate setting that still causes the monitor to turn off after N minutes of inactivity.

comment How do I completely turn off screensaver and power-management?
This does not work. I have an HDMI monitor, and it still turns off after a few minutes. All screensaver and power settings seem to be completely ignored.
