comment Any command line calculator for Ubuntu?
Wait, what exactly do you mean "switch to" python? and "without any extra prefixes"? Are you saying you want to be able to calculate things at the prompt without running a command?

comment Why can't I import “pygtk” with Python 3.2 from PyDev?
I misread someting about PyGObject - it's confusing that there are announcements about that on the PyGTK website: > PyGobject 2.26.0 has been released. This is the first stable release in the 2.26.x series and introduces initial support for introspection and Python 3. As usual, sources can be fetched from here. Check out the release announcement and full list of changes.

"a version of PyGTK for Python 3 was never written." - that's not what the pygtk website says - do you mean was never packaged for ubuntu?

comment Is it really possible to run Linux applications within Windows using Wubi?
You could also use current versions xubuntu or lubuntu, which haven't caught the unity bug yet.

comment Why does this 'kill' command log me out of the computer?
@user606723 the init process will not exit, and can decide what (if anything) to do about all the other processes having exited.

Er, it looks like he's trying to add an ACL entry, not change the basic permissions.

comment Touchpad detected as both PS/2 mouse and ALPS Glidepoint…uses PS/2 mouse settings
The psmouse_alps_dkms driver in the comments there helped some, but my hardware acts flaky enough with it (it acts flaky with the real ALPS driver on windows, to, my computer shipped with a custom driver) that I gave up.

comment How to hide terminal output when executing a command?
@TC1 In principle, a program could reopen /dev/tty and print the output there. In practice, GUI programs won't do that.
