comment How to force Krusader to use Ubuntu's file associations?
I guess that problem is that Krusader, being a totally KDE application, does not pick up any Gnome settings.

Would you at least describe the glitches? Our extrasensory powers are rather low this season of the year.

comment How to downgrade oxygen-gtk
You can not downgrade a library, because whole KDE (in this case) depends on exact new version. After Gentoo possibilities this seems completely unchangeable. Ok. In most cases, nearly always, it is not possible to downgrade a package in major number.

comment What are the reasons to have strong password at home?
A short pwd will quickly fall for a brute force attack. Totally agree. My question is - how and for what reason a bruteforce attack can happen on home PC? Malicious mail attachment, to perform this, would already need all the access rights it needs to do it's black task - screw user files, steal web passwords, so on. You don't need root for any of this.

By the way, about physical presence: not at all. I have a long-standing bet with colleagues at work. Whoever manages to open my PC without my presence wins. They had it in full physical access for weeks, but without result. I just had fully encrypted HDD and a bootloader with keys to it on USB stick that I carry off.

comment What are the reasons to have strong password at home?
I want to decide what sort of passwords to set for new users: will "123" be enough, or should I do at least something non-dictionary (and thus, prone to forgetting and mistyping).

If a malicious code tries asking user for sudo password, user will either fall or not fall for it. Password strength has hardly any significance. Same for all other cases presented.
