comment Can “Recently Used” (recently-used.xbel of GTK+ / Nautilus) be accessed via KDE?
@user26687 the baloo package is listed but not installed on my system (on which 4:4.14.2-0ubuntu1~ubuntu12.04~ppa1 etc is installed). I could not see any listing of a timeline package, only some vague hint that it should be part of the KDE 4.4 (which I suppose is what is installed on my system, if I'm reading/interpreting this 4:4.14.2-0ubuntu1~ubuntu12.04~ppa1 correctly), see kubuntuforums.net/… and kde.org/announcements/4.4/applications.php.

@user26687 I'm using okular as default pdf-viewer in standard (non-KDE) Ubuntu and would like to access/use (a KDE-equivalent of) the "recently used files/folders" in okular's "save-as" dialogue. Could I harness the KDE "tools" you mentioned ('timeline' etc) to this purpose? If so, how?

comment Firefox: make ctrl+enter submit a form, even if cursor is in a textarea
@guettli as far as "make ctrl+enter submit a form, even if cursor is in a textarea" is concerned I can imagine and could outline a number of ways to achieve that for a given website. However, to make this behaviour "universal" for all or even most websites out there...? good luck...

@guettli I tried to make a few points clear with my answer. You might want to address some of these issues and plug them back into your original question.

@guettli a) some sites have >1 form. b) there are gazillion ways (and addons) to play around with your own personal shortcuts (in firefox, at least). c) to make these personal shortcuts effective, you'd probably want to tailor them to the websites you frequent on a per-site basis. d) if you are looking for sth more universal, are you familiar with the basic Tab and Shift Tab keyboard shortcuts for form (and element) navigation?

By a few GUI screenshots of "sound" I meant a few: e.g. also while sound is playing, and also from the "applications" tab (while sound is playing).

Judging by the looks you can "mute" your mic input with Fn-keys. Have you tried toggling this "mic mute" ?

Perhaps post a few GUI screenshots from ~ system > sound(s)? I'd assume the mic is not "switched on" or selected properly. How did you try to test it? What does arecord -l say? -- For extensive troubleshooting on this see troubleshooters.com/linux/sound/sound_troubleshooting.htm and also try arecord -d 10 /tmp/test-mic.wav followed by aplay /tmp/test-mic.wav from linuxconfig.org/…
