What got me stumped recently:

  • Just couldn't figure out how to solve things just by scans in Theano metaprogramming language too)
  • Doesn't have the foresight to determine whether C++ template metaprogramming is worth the time invested in learning it.

comment Can't get my Canon LBP printer to run under Ubuntu 14.04
Thanks for the answer! By the way, how did you know that libstdc++6:i386 libxml2:i386 zlib1g:i386 was required? The instructions did mention ia32-libs, which has since been absent in later Ubuntu versions, so I've wondered what the replacement was.

comment Error while installing Catalyst 13.1 on Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit
This doesn't work because OP asks for Legacy version of the driver. The package provided by Ubuntu only works for newer cards (including your HD 7600M).

comment Keyboard freezes / stuck if a key pressed repeatedly
Indeed, how does this fix the problem? Repeat rate may reduce the rate of damage, but the damage is still being done. Delays do not help too; once the key gets stuck, it will start repeating unless you press it again.

comment Keyboard freezes / stuck if a key pressed repeatedly
I agree with your observation that it's not freezing, rather, the key is stuck. And yes, I remember it happening in Windows (Vista/7) too. But previously, it was only the non-character keys (e.g. arrows, ctrl, alt, shift, Win) but recently, all character keys are having the same problem too (thus resulting in keys like y repeating yyyyyyyyy even when not held). Usually the stuck key gets restored when I press it again.

I turned off using xset r off in console, then I realized how much I was depending on arrow keys repeating :(

Why do I have to workaround? How does Konsole determine whether the font is monospaced or not?

comment How apt-get determines when to download translation file?
When you said you copied the repository, what files did you copy? (please update the question) did it include the translation files?

comment Configure fontconfig to ignore bitmaps in scalable fonts
@knb by default ubuntu/debian settings, fontconfig will load anything in ~/.fonts.conf.d/ as well. So I suggest you put it there to avoid mucking with system configs. Unless you want to make it available to all users, then you can put it in /etc/fonts/conf.d, or put it in avail and symlink it to conf.d to use it when you need it (you can delete the symlink when you feel like turning it on, vice versa)
