It's called command_not_found_handler in zsh. See zsh.sourceforge.net/Doc/Release/Command-Execution.html.

comment How do you remap a key to the Caps Lock key in Xubuntu?
XkbOptions is named for a setting in X. The capability is provided by the console-setup package, which seems to have been in Ubuntu since at least Lucid, and probably earlier.

comment Is there a way to prevent alt-tab from raising all windows of an application?
Is this still a problem for you in 13.04? It is working the way you want on my fresh install. Ironically, I want the opposite. :)

comment How can I change the wiggle time of 'urgent animation' in Unity Launcher?
You can also go vote for these bugs: Unity's sidebar Urgent icon animation not constant and Launcher icon alert animation should repeat.... (Click on the pencil and say "Yes, it affects me".)

comment Why have both /mnt and /media?
Without re-reading the spec, I'm pretty sure that since nothing else should use that drive unless explicitly pointed there, you can mount that drive's partitions anywhere you like, e.g. /data or /a.
