Besides that, file URIs like file:///etc/passwd work in gnome-terminal and in konsole.

comment Forced into “Classic” interface under VMWare Fusion
Alt+F2 should open a "run program" dialog. You can also open a terminal, it should be in the last item of the Applications menu.

comment Integrating gnome-terminal with notify-osd
As a workaround you could use the KDE konsole, which has that functionality. It works well in Gnome/Unity.

comment What could be a reason for `.bash_profile` and `.bashrc` not to execute the exports?
You wrote bash_profile and bashrc, but the files in your home directory should be .bash_profile and .bashrc (with a dot as the first letter). If that was only a typo in your post, please edit it. ~/.bash_profile is only sourced for login shells, you probably want to use ~/.bashrc. For the details please have a look in the wiki.

comment laptop monitor screen having edges around it
Did you already try to use gnome-control-center, find the monitor settings and then change the display size? gnome-control-center is the last item on the logout/shutdown button in the top right corner.

comment How to Install wvdial.deb?
You can install wvdial from the Software Center. Are you sure you need to install that wvdial.deb? Did you follow a guide to install your modem? If yes, please share the URL, so people can tell you which steps you can omit (or do somehow different).

comment How to create a bootable USB stick to flash a BIOS?
When you plug the stick in, isn't it automatically opened, so you can drag and drop the files onto it?

comment Error “Printer 'MFC6890CDW' may not be connected.”
Your device URI starts with usb://, that's wrong for a network printer. In this forum thread lpd://<defined_IP>/BINARY_P1 is recommended for an MFC-6490CW (the first letter is a lowercase L).

comment How to create a bootable USB stick to flash a BIOS?
I'm not sure how to interpret your question: Do you have a bootable USB stick now? Or do you have an image file only, and you want to know how to put it on the USB stick?

What version of SQL Developer do you use? There's a thread were an Oracle employee recommends 3.0 EA1. Otherwise you could try Tora.

comment Need drivers for Matrox G400
That G400 binary driver is from 2006, and IIRC it was outdated even then (I had a G400 until 2006).

comment Locked/stuck up screensaver after monitor turns off
This seems to be this or this bug. I just tried enabling "Lock screen when screensave is active" in gnome-screensaver-preferences, and it worked at least once now, i.e. I had to type my password but the screen was not blank with only the mouse cursor.
