comment tracker-store and tracker-miner-fs eating up my CPU on every startup
What exactly does tracker-control -r do? It sounds like since this post tracker-control has been deprecated and it's migrated to the tracker daemon command, but tracker help daemon (or tracker-control --help) doesn't mention a -r flag. Does it still do the same thing? I can't find the old documentation.

comment Switch into tablet mode (in Gnome)
Finally got around to setting this up. Works like a charm! For now I'm just sticking with the default layout but it looks like it'd be easy enough to modify if I wanted to add ctrl, alt, arrow keys, etc. I also installed the Touchpad Indicator gnome extension as an easy way to toggle the touchpad.

comment Switch into tablet mode (in Gnome)
Looks like a good start. I did end up installing onboard and pinned it to the activities tab for easy startup. Looks like this will open it automatically when reorienting the device and will disable the keypad. Still doesn't work for using the device as a tablet in the normal orientation or disabling the keyboard. I can probably work with that though.

comment Capslock remapped with Tweak Tool. Keyboard shortcuts not working on Startup
Did you find a solution for this? I set capslock to be "an additional super" but it makes the original super (the windows icon on my keyboard) not work by itself. It does seem that using it as a modifier still works (e.g. Windows-S).

comment VIM in gnome-terminal keeps printing weird 001B character
I ran into this in a new computer, running gnome. I like the visual bell (normally it makes the screen flash), but obviously inserting characters that don't go away is annoying. I wonder why this works on some machines and not others.

comment What to do about “the disk drive for /dev/mapper/cryptswap1 is not ready yet or not present”?
Using Ubuntu 14.04 #6 didn't work for me - that file doesn't exist. However I just skipped that step and this solved my problem perfectly! I was getting that error message on boot and the boot-up time was significantly slower than it is now. Thanks

comment How do I personalize Ubuntu Touch?
You know what happens when you assume, right? I saw quite a few demos but didn't see anything that mentioned they contained the profiles of the engineering team. Apparently I missed that one.
