comment How can I extract a page range / a part of a PDF?
You might want to add a disclaimer at the top of the answer as a caution that this will convert from vector to raster graphics. This property makes it a fundamentally different approach.

comment How can I use Chromecast
This will only allow to stream contents within the chrome browser, right? I was expecting that the question is how to stream the full desktop in general...

comment What is the exact time of Ubuntu 14.04 release?
This is not a duplicate to the linked question. The linked question asks for a time in general for all Ubuntu versions (which has an answer: there is no official time); this question addresses Ubuntu 14.04 in particular, which may have a different correct answer in case there is exception from the general rule...

comment Setting PATH with two different TexLive versions
Since I was just dealing with a very similar problem successfully, my guess would be the executables are not really in your path. You may want to narrow down the problem be checking which latex. Do you for instance have proper read/write permissions for all binaries in /usr/local/texlive/2013/bin/x68_64-linux?

Interesting ideas, thank you! Both commands did have the expected effects (switching icons on/off, switching theme) but, unfortunately, the icons still look the same.

comment Why are my desktop icons really small and without text?
@Braiam: after nautilus -q the icons disappear completely. I created a new users and with this new user the icons indeed look normal! Since it would again take a few days to set-up the new user to my demands, I apparently have to live this bug for now. So far I also could not determine the responsible diff between the various configuration files of these two users.

This menu option is grayed out on my system, and when I select "Resize Icon..." nothing happens. Since the total age of my system was only a few minutes, the "last" restart/update is not really defined (I enabled "download updates during setup"). However I have restarted a few times since then, and the software updater says "this computer is up to date".
