comment How can I remove the drm from an ePub file?
This worked for me: winetricks adobe_diged. It installs ADE 1.7.2 into WINEPREFIX ~/.local/share/wineprefixes/adobe_diged

@jmend I have to create a separate comment so you get notified (meta.stackexchange.com/a/45296/206677), but read my previous comment

comment WebEx desktop sharing on 64-bit Ubuntu
@balachmar I just tested these same exact steps on Ubuntu 14.04, and they worked fine. It's very important you install the exact packages as listed. I tried with many other combinations, and none of them worked. If you don't have the exact packages installed, WebEx will work but desktop sharing will not work.

comment Concatenating several .mp3 files into one .mp3
Yeah, I used avconv for a while, but then I needed some features that ffmpeg had and avconv didn't, and I haven't used it since. These days it feels like a waste of time checking to see if avconv has the features I need when I already know ffmpeg does.

comment Concatenating several .mp3 files into one .mp3
This worked better for me, because it handles mp3s with spaces in the filename: find . -maxdepth 1 -iname '*.mp3' -print0 | sort -z | xargs -0 mp3wrap output.mp3

comment Can not enable 3D acceleration on Ubuntu 14.04 inside VirtualBox
Fixed it for me. Apparently the ISO file is periodically updated. This is the current one, although it'll probably only be good for a short time: virtualbox.org/download/testcase/…

This worked great for me. All I needed was the /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness line.

comment How to read mp3 tags in shell?
eyeD3 works better for me because it works with id3v2, but @red_trumpet is right, the command should be eyeD3 not eyed3

comment Suyin сamera problem
Since it was working at one point and stopped working, I still suspect a kernel update broke it. I updated my answer with instructions on narrowing it down.

comment Touchpad stops working after suspend on Lenovo T520
Yes, thank you! The "red dot" (trackpoint) sometimes doesn't work on my T430u at startup or resuming from standby; this worked great!
