comment Confirmation dialog when opening multiple files
I tried to set sensitivity when I first experienced the problem, w/o success. I don't think I actually press twice, it's just like Nautilus behaves like that - that's why I thought it must be some problem with my mouse, but after I changed it it's same. Brainstorm is good idea and I'll expose my issue, and link here in next couple of hours. Thanks

comment Confirmation dialog when opening multiple files
OK, thanks. It's really viewed by just few and OTOH it's so terrible situation when I accidentally open many files at once. I wish there is easy solution, as I even changed my mouse in a hope to solve it, but still it's same - sometimes click for dragging or just additionally selecting items in Nautilus is treated as double-click and then I sit, waiting for windows/memory bloat :S

comment Executing “unicode” Python script from Gedit vs Terminal
Good read, thanks. So this issue can be treated as piping problem to Python interpreter for whatever reason, even thou encoding is declared in source file. I feel so sad that most friendly language in the world (IMHO) crawls to this Babylonian Unicode issues in so many ways, and it's so difficult to understand all possible implications, w/o need to be bother "decode early - encode later" - it's so un-pythonic (IMHO)

comment I'll have what's she's having: Point Banshee to Windows Media Player's metadata sources
I don't use Banshee, but doesn't it have access to freedb database? Alternatively try to tag ripped CD with other player/tagger that has freedb or maybe discogs access

WMP uses AMG as source for tagging, which is great service but it's not free. I would expect that musicbrainz database is bigger, but I'm not sure

comment What happens when I drop a file on archive in Nautilus?
Also I noticed that compressing to RAR with Nautilus archive manager, resulting archive is not compressed with default RAR setting (-m3) but with fastest setting (-m1), which is really bad decision, as if this program does not allow setting compression levels than it should not tweak defaults, which user should expects. Default setting isn't there without reason

comment What happens when I drop a file on archive in Nautilus?
Yes, you are right. In either case (using Nautilus' archive manager or Terminal) archive needs to be uncompressed then appended, and re-compressed again. Thanks for your archivemount suggestion, but I think I'll go with RAR. I just tested, and querying is at same speed as with tag.gz, and has lot of other handy options which makes it more sane choice instead using compressed tar.

I couldn't know when I don't know the duration. Better search for bitrate calculator, so you can do it yourself in future ^_^

Lower the bitrate. Depending on your video duration you can calculate it by hand to fit 300 MB

comment Man pages from custom location
Thanks. Interestingly MANPATH has already $HOME/.local/man but not $HOME/.local/share/man. I added export MANPATH=$HOME/.local/share/man:$MANPATH in .bashrc

comment How do I use the GUI to search for files in GNOME?
I don't know the details. If you want to know tracker syntax google for tracker sparql, which I have no idea if you can use in 12.04 (Nautilus/Dash where this feature is implemented). Better download gnome-search-tool and do your searches like you are used to.

comment How do I use the GUI to search for files in GNOME?
I think you are looking for gnome-search-tool which was removed in 12.04 unfortunately for the price of integrated Tracker, AFAIK. I guess you can access it from Nautilus and Dash, but I'm not sure. Not great decision, as search syntax for Tracker is awful, IMHO. Try searching repository for gnome-search-tool

comment Where can I find network manager's gconf key?
I can search in gconf with "Ctrl+F" but not in dconf, in 11.04. I would expect search feature to be available also at your place

comment Install Faenza icons on libreoffice 3.5 toolbar
@Jakob: Obviously problem is that procedure you described is relevant for 3.4 and it worked for user46035 when he had 3.4 With 3.5 it doesn't work any more for him/her. Does it work for you? Can you use Faenza set in 3.5?

comment Poor sound quality on Ubuntu
Thinking is not enough. You have to do an ABX test to be taken seriously. Please revisit your answer (together with your previous answer, which you duplicate) and remove such claims as misleading. Something else is faulty in your audio pipeline and you better find what, instead accusing something you don't understand
