revised How to change default behavior when iPod is plugged in?
re-revised the final question to be more in line with what I originally intended, instead of what someone else edited it to.

comment How to change default behavior when iPod is plugged in?
I appreciate folks helping to edit the question, but my question really was about the change between the old version of Ubuntu and the new one rather than just how to use Rhythmbox in place of Clementine. That was the motivation for the question, but I'm much more interested in the general question.

comment How to use Rhythmbox python console
I was using the main "Enter" key, not the one in the numpad; for some reason having numlock on/off made a difference for that one too.

comment Why the Enter key in a Mac keyboard is mapped to Level?
I'm wondering if KP_Enter is actually what you want--Return may be a more useful key code; I recently have had a problem with the fact that my enter key maps to KP_Enter when numlock is on and Return when numlock is off, and KP_Enter doesn't work in all situations...

curse comments and their lack of line breaks! the if statement added to .xinitrc needs to have line breaks after then and before fi.

comment How to use Rhythmbox python console
In case someone else has this problem, I did find a long-term solution: xmodmap -pke > ~/.Xmodmap to create a custom layout, then at the end of that file add a line keysym KP_Enter = Return then run xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap to enable the new custom layout for this session. To make it autorun for the future, add the following to ~/.xinitrc: if [ -f $HOME/.Xmodmap ]; then /usr/bin/xmodmap $HOME/.Xmodmap fi

comment Keyboard shortcut for Terminal doesn't work since updating to 12.10
yup, my default terminal was set to something that wasn't installed! I guess at some point I decided i liked rxvt-unicode better than gnome-terminal (though I can't recall why now), and then when I upgraded to 12.10, it uninstalled rxvt-unicode, while leaving my default terminal setting the same -- the shortcut wasn't working because it was calling a command that didn't exist.
