comment Facebook Chatting Software in Ubuntu
This is pretty nice. seems like this uses Chrome to do its job but it's very intuitive and makes me feel at home.

comment Why doesn't AwesomeWM recognize all of my modkey keypresses when using an external keyboard or how can I fix it?
ok, well, easy enough. I've got about 4 keyboards from different manufacturers/models. Your comment seems kind of vague, but I'm gonna take it as a troubleshooting suggestion and will follow up with the results. Thanks for the tip on gnome15. I can probably find that useful, but it seems like it mostly enables the enhanced features. I may go ahead with that too, but usually avoid adding unnecessary software.

sincere thank you for replying. good question. xev does not respond when i press my mod4, and it shows no KeyPress or KeyRelease event. yet i can resize the xev window by holding down mod4, right clicking the titlebar, and then moving the mouse. xev does not output a KeyPress event when I do this.

comment How do I get the CPU temperature?
i like the tip about using watch, it's one of my favorites. i also recommend adding the -d option to watch to highlight the differences.

comment Awesome multimonitor scenario: how to stop mirroring?
I'm sorry that caused more problems and didnt fix anything. I realize you've kind of "moved on", but I'll post another possible solution. maybe it'll work without changing drivers.

comment Cycle through clients on both screens in awesomewm
marking seems to allow you to add a tag to marked clients all at once from what i can tell. it's not discussed much in the manpage, but it has one reference to "tag marked clients with tag". what i've picked up on though is you can probably use that "mark" functionality for anything that needs to be applied or processed on multiple clients. say for example you have 10 clients and you want title bars on 4, mark those 4 and then with some lua code you can have it add the titlebars on those you've marked.

comment How to get lock screen option in Lubuntu?
this is a keybinding. he asked for "program/application". It gives him a good start on finding the answer he is seeking, but doesnt tell him where to look though (openbox configuration file).

comment How to change desktop settings back after using gksudo nautilus?
this should be the proper solution. the "problem" is nautilus's default nature of displaying the launching user's desktop. disable it by using the --no-desktop parameter when you first use gksudo nautilus --no-desktop

i suspect more likely the difference in the video drivers. Is it ATI or Nvidia or ... ?
