comment how can I configure a specific usb mouse model as left-handed?
Sorry for the late late reply :P I'd imagine you can (I haven't played with two at the exact same time, nor a trackpoint), so long as the identifiers are different I'm going to assume that the remap will apply to only the mouse you choose. Don't quote me on that though ^.^

comment Allocate More Disk Space; Only Partition
Note, that you can't resize a Ubuntu partition from within Ubuntu itself (as GParted has to unmount a partition first). Shall I suggest that you add in a hint about using GParted on a Live CD/USB to do the resize? :P

Haha, oh man... You must be dead on the head with this one... Yeah, I've mounted my /tmp to ram using nodev,nosuid,noexec,mode=1777 - I'll boot up my 64-bit and try it out :P

comment sudo error, is mode 0777, should be 0440
@user20698 Wow, you really gave a workaround to your sudo base; for each error, you'll have to do the same steps as above, I've added in examples, also, can you post the output of ls -al /etc/sudoers.d/ so we can get an idea of what else you've modified? Cheers

@Seppo As Lekensteyn stated, not if you don't own the file. For example: sudo -i touch /home/<user>/test chmod 0777 test logout chmod 0440 test
