comment What is the difference between gtk-window-decorator and compiz-decorator?
I think I also saw some reference somewhere to "unity-window-decorator" or "unity-decorator". Is that another one of these? Here's an AskUbuntu reference.

comment 'Insufficient permissions' error on `adb push` command on 12.04
You may need to "trigger" udev after adding the new rule file (though I'm not sure). Here's a way to "trigger" askubuntu.com/questions/82470/… .

comment What Application Indicators are available?
How can I get this Unity Launcher Taggle indicator to show up? What do I need to install or run? Thanks. The link to the project page is dead.

comment How to get smooth scrolling in Nautilus?
This is out of date. Nautilus supports smooth scrolling at least in 14.04.

comment Global smooth scrolling application
Already asked in askubuntu.com/questions/6228/… and the one you pointed to askubuntu.com/a/149727/148451 . So let's not populate with more of the same question. Maybe rephrase the question to be more specific, i.e. where should I start to build one, as developer?

comment No smooth scrolling on Chrome for Ubuntu
I don't see anything about "Threshold Composing" in the Chrome/Chromium chrome://flags page. Please edit to clarify what you mean. Thanks!

comment Why is scrolling in Chromium super-smooth with Openbox but not with Compiz?
Wow!! That is awesome! For all who haven't tried, just type in python into a terminal in Ubuntu and then copy and paste these commands. It's flawless. This demo (or similar) should be pointed to from any bugs or forums, etc. in response to any detractors and to demo exactly what "smooth scrolling" actually means in Ubuntu and GTK. Thanks for the demo.

Thanks! Do you know if this "Getting Started" tab would always display when the plugin is enabled?

revised How can I change the Gedit keyboard cursor / caret to a block instead of a bar?
Qualify my question based on one of the responses to require insert-only behavior.

comment How can I change the Gedit keyboard cursor / caret to a block instead of a bar?
Thanks! I also want to have the old insertion behavior when typing (not overwriting). I just edited my original question to reflect that.

comment Key short cut `Super+L` (i.e. `Win+L`) not working for `LockScreen` in 12.04 LTS
Anybody else have Win/Super + l make their display settings reverted to a previous setting? I used the System Settings to rotate my display and I noticed that pressing Win+L will flip flop it between normal rotation and the 90degree rotation.

comment How to find (and delete) duplicate files
@nealmcb If using sudo apt-get install fslint, the installation currently does put fslint-gui into the path and so I can run it from anywhere by just typing fslint-gui. You can find where fslint-gui lives by typing which fslint-gui (it looks like a Python script).

comment Where is “open with…” in Nautilus?
You will need to fix up the MimeType and other settings to match the file types you want to associate. Also, you will probably need to restart Nautilus (try typing nautilus -q in a command line to quit, then open it again).

comment Getting the word count of a pdf document in Evince
Whatever file is used to define the document could be considered "source code", and Evince is the machine that executes the code. It's unfair (and impossible) to ask the source code editor (e.g. a text editor) to determine what the output of the execution will be, so let's just look at the output (i.e. the rendered image/text in Evince/poppler). Implementation in Evince would be useful to me since I'm "coding" my papers in a language-agnostic text editor and use Evince (via Pandoc and pdflatex) to "run" my source. Only at the end can we be certain what made it through. Consider commented code.
