comment Inconsistent icons in Ubuntu Unity
Finally someone els has this problem, I've had this problem on one machine for one app (firefox) since 12.10. And found this because this week a new machine and a different app (nautilus) has acquired this problem. I've been unable to express what the problem is to be able to form a useful google search to find where or how to log the problem.

comment How to automount a gvfs file system on logon
Worth noting that in later versions the mounted directory would end up in /run/user/<uid>/gvfs/test.tar/. See How to access gvfs mounts from command line?

comment How to set default Java version?
On its own this just changes the compiler - see the answer below for update-java-alternatives which handles switching all of the java-related alternatives, which is 82 on my system.

comment Hybrid Suspend in 14.04?
So to confirm - it suspends (and resumes) OK, but never goes from suspend to hibernate? That matches what I am seeing too.

comment Set up permanent routing (Ubuntu 13.04)
Nice answer - if you need to make the routes specific to one interface, so they only get added when eth0 is connected, try adding: [ "$IFACE" != "eth0" ] || exit 0 before the route add lines.

comment How do I install drivers for the Atheros AR8161 Ethernet controller?
Note that the "compat-wireless" drivers referred to here are the same as the officially supported and maintained "-backports-modules-cw" below - you should really prefer that solution, now that it is available.

comment Can I disable Dash and HUD hotkeys when fullscreen (in DOSBox)?
@hazrpg - changing the key-mappings isn't appropriate for me. Out of the box cuttlefish doesn't help, but it can be used to trigger any command on open/close of an application. I could use it to drive something if I could get a script that changes something in dconf/gconf or triggers dbus.
