comment Kmymoney missing menu bar
Did you get this solved? I am having the same problem currently with Awesome WM. I have also noted that the window only allows to be resized horizontally - it looks like it thinks the available screen height is not enough (~760px on the laptop).

For me it does not break apt-cache search (Ubuntu 13.10).

comment Files lens and xdg-open only open nautilus but not the correct applicatiion
I could track it down to the 'exo-utils' package, where I probably have used exo-preferred-applications from once. In ~/.local/share/applications there is the following entry, which appears to cause it, if exo-file-manager is installed: "mimeapps.list:x-scheme-handler/file=exo-file-manager.desktop"

comment What is the 'ptrace_scope' workaround for Wine programs and are there any risks?
@izx: Thanks for this answer. It would be interesting to add information about what "eip" refers to (explained here: andy-pearce.com/blog/posts/2013/Mar/file-capabilities-in-linux). Additionally, I have suggested recommending this method in the reptyr docs, where the author replied that it may be a security issue: github.com/nelhage/reptyr/pull/27#issuecomment-29486673 - it would be great, if you could elaborate on that.

comment gnome-terminal tabs are very dark, difficult to tell which tab is in use
It might be better to override the style/CSS in your user profile, instead of replacing it in the system file. See this answer: askubuntu.com/a/252192/169

comment How do you know when to use SHIFT+INSERT vs CTRL-V vs right-click-paste to paste?
The question appears to me about the two types of clipboards: PRIMARY (usually Ctrl-C/V/X) and CLIPBOARD (mouse selection, insertion with Shift-Ins), and not having to use Shift additionally in a terminal for the PRIMARY clipboard's shortcuts (or LibreOffice's special paste).

comment Logout/Shutdown taking very long, how to find the problem?
Are you using Squid (a HTTP proxy) by any chance? This might add 30 seconds (shutdown lifetime, can be configured to be 0).

comment How do I use pm-suspend-hybrid by default instead of pm-suspend?
You are right about hybrid-suspend. I have recently changed my snippet myself. You can get (quite) the same result by using METHOD=hibernate and HIBERNATE_MODE=suspend. I am setting HIBERNATE_MODE=platform at the top of the file, instead of saving and restoring the previous version (what the patch does). I will update my answer above.

Would be worth a bug report probably and/or testing if it works in 12.10+.

comment Prevent Windows from stealing focus
@Joel how did you setup it? What Focus Prevention Level are you using and how did you configure the "Focus Prevention Windows" matching rules?

comment How can I use multitouch apps in Ubuntu 12.04?
I have the same device, and when I tested it mtview was able to recognize up to 5 simultaneous events (IIRC, but more than 2 for sure). Apart from that I cannot help you much, but am interested in the answer to this, too.

comment Logout/Shutdown taking very long, how to find the problem?
Try "tail -F" with ~/.xsession-errors and/or look at ~/.xsession-errors.old after reboot. There might be some indication in there. Also, if you are seeing the splash while it is waiting (the Ubuntu logo and the dots), then remove "quiet" and "splash" from the kernel boot arguments to have more information while it is hanging. This might be related to mounted network shares.

comment Removing the period from a hostname
He said to have changed /etc/hostname and rebooted, which should have made the new hostname apply.

comment Hibernate missing from power menu and when I press laptop power button
Note: it is possible to use the advanced installer and setup something like cryptsetup on a partition, LVM on top and then e.g. root, home and swap as logical volumes. This allows for hibernate to work and everything is encrypted.

comment mplayer can't play audio from cron while ncmpcpp is playing simultaneously
It does not help for sound though.. the error from cron for e.g. ogg123 is: ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1018:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave ERROR: Cannot open device alsa.

comment How do I set focus follows mouse?
There should be a delay after which the focus would change, defaulting to e.g. 200ms - this would allow to quickly move across other windows to reach the UMB for example.

comment How do I access and enable more icons to be in the system tray?
I have tried it for lastfm, but a) I cannot paste into the Alt-F2 "thing" (so I've typed it), and b) neither using 'lastfm' nor 'last.fm' in the list (as the only entry) allowed the lastfm icon to be displayed in the notification area.
