comment How do I set and store the custom Keybaord Shortcuts? (ubuntu 14.04)
Actually looks like gsettings just loops back to dconf (which doesn't seem to work. gsettings list-recursively | grep custom0 sends me to /org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys/custom-keybindings/custom0 which is what I tried to set with dconf, and didn't seem to have any effect.

comment How do I set and store the custom Keybaord Shortcuts? (ubuntu 14.04)
Thanks for the help, this seems to be pointing a helpful direction, but I'm stumped again. I currently have a keybinding set: "<Ctrl><Alt>p" which is running /usr/local/bin/pianobar-ctl p I know it because it's happening. But I don't see any reference to it in gsettings list-recursively so I'll need some other tool I guess to toggle that setting.

comment Banshee play queue won't add songs and switches to play library
The second problem could be argued as a feature, though I could see why you might want it configurable. The first is something I find frustrating also. I've given up using the DJ and added stuff manually. I guess if I want random play, I switch to pandora. I wish I could use banshee for it though

If you make that a solution, and mark it as a solution, I'll upvote that too. Thanks!

comment is DD taking too long?
Thanks @JimSalter I was just noticing that my piping: dd if=/dev/sda | pv | dd of=/file was using up 20%, 60%, and 20% CPU respectively. Which to me seems to be a problem.

comment How do I resize an encrypted LVM to install another copy of Ubuntu?
I'm pretty sure you wouldn't need a live cd if you can unmount the partitions. I guess the most common layout is with the root system being encrypted, though?

comment Nautilus not generating thumbnails in 13.10
Here's a rather accurate solution for 13.10 and all past versions: askubuntu.com/a/179107/17065 Note the change in path from '.thumbnails' to '.cache/thumbnails'

This was my solution in ubuntu 13.10. I don't remember having this problem in ubuntu 12.04.

This package isn't available for debian wheezy, or for suacy (13.10). I'm trying to remember when the migration happened for ubuntu... but they migrated from installing 32 bit packages this way.

comment How can I remove “Show Desktop” from the Alt-Tab (application) switcher?
I spent some time and recompiled it myself for 5.20. I've posted my answer below, since it wasn't quite as straight forward as I imagined: askubuntu.com/a/395031/17065

comment How do I get a RoseWill rk-8100 keyboard working?
FWIW: it's generally a bad idea to download scripts and then run them. Please read the script before running it. Or better yet, read it and run the commands inside yourself.

It looks like the current version of unity is 5.20, and your version is 5.14. I'm using 12.04, so a custom build seems to be my only option. Thanks for outlining this. If you don't have time to do the build, maybe I'll try it.
