What problems were caused by Windows? (Devil's advocate) How do you know they weren't caused by NTFS-3G?

comment How do you remap a key to the Caps Lock key in Xubuntu?
As far as I recall, you also need to ensure you've turned on any "Use system keyboard layout" option, and/or disabled IBus. See e.g. askubuntu.com/a/442415/1951

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.

comment Tell `ls` to sort by regular ASCII codes, not “intelligently”
This may have worked in the past, but it's not working on Ubuntu 12.04.

comment Why have both /mnt and /media?
It says /mnt is for the system administrator. This implies that /mnt should not be used by the system itself. So if your computer automatically mounts a CD or DVD, it should mount it in /media, not /mnt.

@Roland Taylor: Besides, nobody has starred this question, so if I had not started my comment with @username, he probably wouldn't have seen my comment or answer at all.

@Roland Taylor: My answer was directed to the Adam Matan; my comment was directed to EvilPhoenix. I think this is the logical thing to do.
