@htorque: It doesn't matter where, try to add key name with "+" anywhere it won't work. It seems like misfortune naming of mime-type here, although I don't know if maybe "+" can be escaped

comment Alternative to Nautilus archiver handler
Because I'll have to hunt down for files, instead just compress selected. Isn't that the reason for integrated archiver in Nautilus? Or have you maybe tried integrated 7z or Winrar in Windows Explorer?

comment Reliable clipboard manager
OK, thanks for answering. I didn't try Diodon, as I'm currently happy with Glippy, and as other commenter also suggested it, I'll mark your answer as accepted

comment How to install Beatbox?
You can find granite in elementary-daily PPA. Better just download .deb package or build granite from source, instead adding PPA.

That (QL Python snippet) would be just as similar as querying sqlite database and producing playlist. You'll face playlist sorted by artist song count. After that you'll need to correct tags to make your future music browsing easier

comment Music player that can sort or filter by number of tracks (per artist)
I can get you there with QuodLibet and it Python console, but... You are talking about common feature which is distinguished with separate tags: ALBUM ARTIST/BAND and ARTIST. Those artist in your library that have 2-3 tracks are probably part of compilation in which case they are filtered by ALBUM ARTIST tag - that's the purpose of this tag. If ALBUM ARTIST is not defined it should fall-back to ARTIST. If I were on Windows I'd use foobar2000 with Facets, but it doesn't really matter which tool you use if you know how to do it. As said I can post Python snippet for QuodLibet is you use it

Many Linux audio players store user's media library in sqlite format. Then you can use sql querying on database file and output PLS/M3U list as one kind of approach

comment How to prevent “automatic” bold version of a font to be wider than regular having the same pt size?
I stand corrected. I noticed the same using SciTE (and perhaps you too use Scintilla based editor - perhaps Geany?) while my font is Droid Sans Mono, but I took it as granted, and I didn't have an idea that weighted font can have different spacing even for monospaced fonts, while bold font uses same spacing as regular. Even more it seems that also proportional fonts have this "feature" you noticed, thou not all. Sorry for my bold first reply, I should have checked first
