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.
