comment External displays with Bumblebee
Editing xorg.conf.nvidia as in your reference was necessary for me on Ubuntu 14.10 (in particular, I needed to comment UseEDID and UseDisplayDevice). However, I didn't need to use a PPA (Bumblebee from Ubuntu worked just fine) and I also don't need any scripts to start and stop the multi-monitor setup -- simply starting or killing intel-virtual-output as regular user works for me. (It executes optirun as necessary.) Can you confirm?

comment How to merge several PDF files?
Fair enough, cp also overwrites last argument without warning. This is just for rushing users (like myself) -- I was lucky I had a backup of the file in question...

WARNING: An existing file out.pdf will be overwritten without warning, so pdfunite *.pdf won't work as expected.

comment Immediate wake up from suspend caused by USB 3.0 devices
On my system, suspend worked again after saying ( echo EHC1; echo EHC2; echo XHCI ) > /proc/acpi/wakeup in a root shell.

Are there entries like EHC? and XHCI in your /proc/acpi/wakeup?

comment MD + LUKS + LVM will not cleanly shutdown
In a similar setup on 14.04, vgchange -a n cleanly closes everything, and cryptsetup luksClose works.

comment How do I do a minimal install without an internet connection?
Excellent write-up! -- The links to the seven extra packages are now out of date.
