The point of beep is that it can generate any arbitrary beep.

comment How to change default terminal application in Gnome-Shell
@Wilf, No, I'm done filing bugs. They're always ignored, and I've found a solution by simply abandoning the buggy program.

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 14.04 LTS No Dash / Launcher after update through Software Updater
This worked for me...surprisingly. And yes, it completely wipes all your personal settings. This isn't so much a solution as it is cutting out cancer. Sometimes I really hate Gnome...

comment Trying to connect a Samsung m2020w printer to wireless network
Those instructions do not work. Even after connecting to the printer's wireless network, I'm unable to access any webpage at "my IP". Although Samsung's own documentation is equally useless.

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.

comment How do I connect to a WPA wifi network using the command line?
@Rinzwind, Yes... Looking through wpa_supplicant's manpage shows that the driver may vary, so your command will likely not work as literally given. You have to choose the -D<driver> for your specific hardware. For me, it ended up being "nl80211".

comment NetworkManager refuses to manage my WLAN interface
This doesn't work for me on Ubuntu 14.04. Boot still takes forever with the message "Waiting for network configuration" and afterwards Network Manager and my wifi is still disabled. Nothing works until I manually run nmcli nm wifi on.
