comment How do I add zero padding to filenames that already have numbers in them?
@Oli, I think there may also be a conflict of interest here. If you weren't advocating for your own answer to take precedence, it would be easier to belive this was an objective determination.

comment How do I add zero padding to filenames that already have numbers in them?
@Oli, Jacob is correct. I had looked at similar solutions to the question you've linked to, but because of the particular naming scheme I was dealing with, it wasn't obvious that any file numbering solution would work. Marking this as duplicate is presuming a level of knowledge that precludes the purpose of asking questions.

This is useful to know. Although, GPRename, seems to not acknowledge existing numbers, so it seems to not fix this particular situation.

comment How do I get my Compiz window decorations back?
I ended up completely purging all packages from eugenesan, and this ended up solving another problem I had. I had a question with a 50 point bounty on it, and I feel that since you provided the solution, you should get that bounty. If you a put an answer on this question, essentially saying "purge the eugenesan repository", I'll award the bounty to you.

comment How do I get my Compiz window decorations back?
The problem has been solved now. After I removed the eugenesan repository, I had some errors with some broken packages, and I had to go use Synaptic to remove a bunch of packages that came from eugenesan. After I did that, and reinstalled Compiz and Metacity and associated packages, and then re-logged in, everything seems to be back to normal. I guess you were right - eugenesan was the problem all along. Thanks for all your assistance.

Thanks for the update. I tried the command sudo apt-get install --reinstall libmetacity-private0a=1:2.34.13-0ubuntu4, and the response I get is The following extra packages will be installed: libmetacity-private0a, but then it doesn't seem to actually do anything. No download, no install progress. It just comes back to the command prompt, and nothing changes. Also, I removed the eugenesan repository. I don't remember why I originally used it.

Thank you for this response. However, resetting to defaults did not bring the window decorations back.

comment How can I make Compiz work with MATE 1.6?
@strugee, just tried this using Ubuntu 14.04, and it does not work. Or at least, it doesn't just automatically work as described in this answer. I have Mate and compiz-gnome installed, and so far Compiz does not work in Mate.

comment How do I get my window frames back in Gnome Flashback?
Unfortunately, after using this for a while, I've learned that whle metacity --replpace does get my window frames back, it also kills all other Compiz features, some of which I was using. So I guess I need to look for another solution. I'll start a new question, though, since this answer did resolve the issue I was having when I asked it.
