comment How to block certain characters from a string in Python
Or just use .read() which is preferred over .readlines() anyway.

comment Why does Ubuntu's webkit inspector look just like Safari?
It could be the change from Webkit1 to Webkit2, both can be used in 14.04 which could explain the difference in behaviour.

comment Does pip overwrite packages installed by apt-get?
@FredS: Run the following command in the terminal, Python will search in that specific order for a module: python -c "import sys; print sys.path"

Corerct, pip installs them in /usr/local subdirectories by default or any other directory if you want.

comment Import error packages with Python installed on Ubuntu 12.04
Run the ./configure, make and make install steps again from your posted link. I don't want to be an asshole, but maybe it would be good to read a bit first before starting to mess with custom compiled packages, especially something important like Python. You're following the steps on that website without even knwoing what you're doing, that's not good.

@begueradj: Yes, you need the openssl development files and then recompile (important!) and reinstall Python.

comment Updating appindicators label does not work from python thread
@JasonConti: it's not buggy, they are not meant to be used together! Just like you can't mix the old static PyGTK bindings with the new dynamic GObject introspection method. The issue with the segmentation fault is that the old method can't detect if the new method is already loaded. You should get a normal error mesage the other way around.

comment How to change window opacity dynamically in Python and Quickly?
That piece of code is a stab to the programmmer's heart :-). Just convert it to a float like Javier said and catch the ValueError exception.
