comment apt-get warning: No support for locale: en_US.utf8
The problem is apparently the lowercase "utf8". The "sudo update-locale LANG=en_US.UTF-8" should do the trick.

This worked fantastic! Thanks a bunch, I didn't know of 'fuser'!

comment How to clear bash history completely?
No, it is not. Log out, log in, arrow-up gives me everything. You need the "history -w" too.

comment Cannot resize windows at lower right corner?
For me, when opening the CCSM, the setting was actually checked, but I unchecked it, and then checked it again, and voila!, it works. Stupid stuff.

comment How do I increase the hard disk size of the virtual machine?
Your problem is that you've symlinked the disk to a '/media/data' location and that it doesn't reside on the original '/home/wim/VirtualBox VMs' location. I've answered with how I fixed this.

ABSURD! That instantly increased my write performance from ~70MB/s to ~360MB/s!?! Oh my god. W-T-F is this not default?!?

comment Can I copy large files faster without using the file cache?
Direct makes is very slow, since it AFAIK also disables the readahead caches, which is probably not what you want, and is not realistic in a benchmarking scenario either. Use "iflag=nocache oflag=nocache" instead, which exactly says to the OS that you don't need the in-file or the out-file cached.

comment How to configure chrome to open magnet url's with deluge?
Just hacked Azureus to work. Got the xdg/gvfs bs to kick in Azureus (using all other answers here!): Testing with xdg-open on command line showed that. However, Azureus didn't react. In the azureus.desktop file, it had Exec line with %f. Changed that to %U as mentioned in this answer, and now it works.
