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That G400 binary driver is from 2006, and IIRC it was outdated even then (I had a G400 until 2006).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

Can you please look in /proc/cpuinfo like I wrote in askubuntu.com/questions/37618/is-turbo-boost-working/…, then edit the results into your question?

comment Wine programs (Steam and Football Manager) don't work after upgrade
If you suspect it is a problem with Unity, you can logout, login to Ubuntu Classic (i.e. Gnome 2), and try it.

comment How do I define a file context options keyboard shortcut?
You're right, I didn't think of that. I'm afraid I can't find anything better than a global key binding, either using xmodmap or xbindkeys (or Gnome's key combinations) with xsendevent.

comment How do I define a file context options keyboard shortcut?
You could use xmodmap to bind another key to the menu button, like in the answer to that question. But if you are using a laptop, you should have one or two right mouse buttons at your trackpad. Isn't it easier to use one of these?
