comment How can I type accentuated characters like ë?
I've found that setting the 'English (US, international, with dead keys)' actually works if set via lxkeymap (sudo apt-get install lxkeymap). Even more interesting, it only needs to be set once, as if some extra config is changed to make it work. (Dutch source: sites.google.com/site/computertip/toetsenbord)

Is this still the case in Ubuntu 15.10? I don't get this working anymore. Setting either 'English (US, international, with dead keys)' or 'English (international, dead keys via AltGr)' doesn't work.

For gnome (3) this needs libgnome2-bin which is not installed by default.

comment Ubuntu mouse stopped working
@juanjalvarez did it happen again and/or did you manage to fix it? I think I'm having the same problem on a thinkpad laptop. For me it seems (from second hand, it is not my laptop) that also the touchpad doesn't work. Tracpad I've yet to verify.

Note that xinput ids can change over restarts. So relying on these ids in scripts or shortcuts won't work.

comment Use my webcam with Ubuntu running in VirtualBox
@GeorgeEdison, Shubh is using Windows as a host system and Ubuntu as a guest. As long as Windows can recognize the webcam (can it @Shubh?) than the question is just fine.
