comment Is it possible to open docx files that have been saved in Ubuntu's LibreOffice in Microsoft Office?
I would say yes, unfortunately. The other solution, if you collaborate with people using MS office is to just send them pictures/text changes separately and let them format it in MS office. But for simple documents, using libreoffice to generate docx files might be fine. You can always use the free document viewers provided by MS to check what it will look like in there. I had success running some of the older ones using Wine.

I am having the same problem, but libcanberra-pulse is already installed. At the moment I suspect that the recent switch to KDE5 broke a few things.

comment Taking KDE config files with me
I just had trouble with Kate hanging on exit and finally fixed it by removing ~/.local/share/kate/, so for Kate, here is the full list of config files as far as I know: ~/.kde/share/config/kate* ~/.kde/share/apps/kate* ~/.config/kate* ~/.local/share/kate*

comment Can GRUB be scheduled? This means: changing default 'entry' (auto login) at defined periods of time automatically?
It might be better to do it via /etc/grub.d/00_header, because kernel updates (or the user) might call update-grub when adding new entries. cf: linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-desktop-74/…

comment Ctrl+F4 doesn't work in KDE for Firefox / Chrome / Chromium
Strange, I always used ctrl+W to close tabs. Both work perfectly for me though (although I'm using Gnome at the moment).

comment How can I change the language order by command-line (or text editor)?
While this is very interesting (especially LC_MESSAGES), it does not really answer my question. I want to change the settings for one user, not system-wide. More precisely, I want to see+set the order of used languages (as listed in gnome-language-selector) for one user. (also without using .bash* files as it does not seem to be stored in them)
