comment Why there are button areas defined for my Apple Magic Trackpad though xorg's default config disabled them?
It's relevant because trackpads can be renamed. Maybe you need a Mac to do so, but that hardly matters. You can't put matching names into the xorg file if they fail to match because a particular trackpad has been renamed. So anyone attempting this needs to take that into account.

Trackpads can be renamed (using a Mac). So your advice is not relevant to someone whose trackpad is no longer called "Trackpad von apple". The new name has to be used instead.

comment What is difference between #!/bin/sh and #!/bin/bash?
I have never seen #!/bin/dash recommended; just use #!/bin/sh and you'll get dash these days. If the shebang line is omitted, you'll probably get the same shell as your current interactive shell, which is likely to be bash.

comment How do I swap mouse buttons to be left handed from the terminal?
I find this useful because I often have two mice, left and right. This technique allows them to be set to be the mirror image of each other.

comment Automatic screen brightness on Ubuntu 14.10 not working right, manual controls not working at all
Good - this works quite well and allows some control over brightness. Is there a way to turn off automatic control (ambient light sensing)? I know the laptop's camera is being used because if I cover the camera lens, it dims the screen right down automatically.

comment Unable to change screen brightness with hotkeys on Ubuntu 14.10
Doesn't work for me. Brightness controls don't work in a fresh 14.10 install. Previously (14.04), the brightness controls worked fine.
