Thunar doesn't have this problem. This is a serious bug.

comment How to Use Hard Disk As RAM Like In WIndows?
The canonical way to do this is to simple add a partition of swap type. You can use gparted or other methods to do that. I think that is the reason your answer has been downvoted.

comment Can I change the gedit shell output colors?
Actually it is black color for stdout-type output and red for stderr. What bothers me is that even if the program tries to produce colors (like now gcc does), they are ignored by the gedit output.

comment Why doesn't /etc/fstab use XML or JSON?
XML and the like is not always the better format. A table is a table and should be stored as such. In fact some people think that XML is no good for anything plus.google.com/+LinusTorvalds/posts/X2XVf9Q7MfV

comment Are hard links equivalent to Windows shortcuts?
I think the parallel is misleading, Shortcut are "interface" links just files with text information about the target that are interpreted by the interface and not by the filesystem. From a command line they are not really pointing to something in the filesystem sense. Windows (or better said NTFS) has proper symlinks en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NTFS_symbolic_link that are not shortcuts nor hardlinks. I fact I use them in Windows to have Dropbox folders anywhere, this cannot be done with shortcuts.

I get "Error! Build of psmouse.ko failed for: Consult the make.log in the build directory /var/lib/dkms/psmouse/alps-1.3/build/", and then make.log shows no errors. What could it be?

comment Subwoofer doesn't work on Dell Inspiron 17R after upgrade to 13.10
This sort of worked, first after "Apply now" there is no change (in sound or sound options), after applying the "boot override" and restarting all the sound goes through the subwoofer (horrible). I also have a Dell 17R.
