comment Low timeout threshold for double-click mouse event
Just to clarify things, when a single click is mistakenly interpreted as double click event, you really mean one single click and not two single clicks?

@SirCharlo Just copy & paste your comment to the form below and press the button "Post your Answer"... ;) If you want you can delete your comment afterwards in order to make everything more clean for users stumbling upon this Q&A.

comment Character encoding problem with filenames - find broken filenames
@SirCharlo Sorry, I was wrong. It finds also those filenames with ASCI 7-bit characters - also those where the encoding is correct. But this is exactly what you claimed. I just filtered this output with another |egrep -v [äöüÄÖÜß] (all non-ASCII 7bit characters are german umlauts). Don't you want to convert your comment to an answer, since it was quite helpful too?

comment Character encoding problem with filenames - find broken filenames
@yossile looks like a promising approach, but I stopped trying after having a very long list of excluded symbols.

comment Character encoding problem with filenames - find broken filenames
@SirCharlo Thanks, this seems to be at least partly successful! But it finds also a lot of filenames which doesn't seem to be affected at first glance.

comment Hardware logs storage?
I don't know if the log I mentioned provides a complete list of hardware problems. There might be something bigger. I suspect there is not one log, but you'll have to enable several specific montitoring abilities for the different hardware parts. But maybe somebody else knows more than I do. On the other hand: probably you are not the first one who tries to do something like this.

comment Hardware logs storage?
What kind of hardware related logs are you looking for? /var/log/messages contains also hardware related error messages from the kernel.

comment Command last does not show logins through sFTP, is there something similar or any logs?
Your answer and the Q&A you linked explain some details, but unfortunately don't solve my question. scp/sftp is not considered as interactive session, so there is no entry in /var/log/btmp or /var/log/wtmp. But if I want to check if a user is connected through sftp, I still don't know how to enable logging or where to find the logs.

Hm... I don't really get your question. I use OpenSSH.

comment Shut down after YouTube upload is finished
You should rather run the whole script as root. If you place a sudo command in the script, it will ask you probably for your password after uploading the video.

@Adobe What happens if you first run konsole and then enter there ./theScript.bash?

comment several start-up scripts?
@Lekensteyn ah great! Do think it matters if one adds custom (meaningless) parameters in Grub? One could easily use the grub menu for choosing such profile options.
