comment Hardware audio keyboard keys stopped working
Oddly enough, they work in mpv (but only change the internal mpv volume setting). And they also work in vlc.

comment How do I find out if a program uses GTK 2 or 3?
What if it is an uncompiled python program (gaupol, for example). Ldd says not a dynamic executable.

comment How do I change which application opens xml documents by default?
My case is your second paragraph. And does this work for you with -xml files? Because it does not for me. Ok, I tried with guest user and it works even for .xml files. So there is something wrong with my profile. Any ideas which files might need resetting to default values to fix this? "Bisecting" .home is a bit tiresome.

comment Is using Nvidia Optimus worth it?
Moreover, discrete card does not help much with video playing - modern cPUs have no problem playing high-resolution videos in real time and encoding with gpu provides much lower quality and may not even be faster (avidemux.org/admWiki/doku.php?id=tutorial:h.264#gpu_support behardware.com/art/imprimer/828 ). At least that is what I was able to google out.

comment How can I create keyboard shortcuts for my nautilus scripts?
this no longer works, at least in 14.04, scripts are not present in the menu. Edit ~/.config/nautilus/accels file to change the shortcuts.

comment Cheese config file location
As of 14.04, the path in dconf-editor that seems to have effect is /org/gnome/cheese. Changing /apps/cheese does not seem to have effect.
