comment Can Ubuntu open and run Microsoft Word files?
What does "There's a provision for that" mean? Who's making a provision?

comment How do I copy contents of a file and concatenate it into a new file?
Oh, maybe you're right! The example 'file 2', then, is very misleading. (Will delete my answer once it's confirmed.)

Or use "back ticks" -- i.e., a ` -- instead of single quotation marks...

comment How to delete an annotation in Evince?
I can confirm this worked for removing annotations: gvfs-set-attribute /path/to/file.pdf metadata::evince::annotations ''. Evince 3.6.0 / Ubuntu 12.10.

comment How can I configure the terminator terminal to always be on top?
Another possibility might be tilda. In its 'general' section of its preferences setting, there is 'display on all workspaces', which works as you describe. If you want to 'multiplex' the tilda, you can use screen or (what I prefer) tmux.

comment How to upgrade kile2.1 beta 4 to kile-2.1.3 in ubuntu 11.04?
If you don't know how to extract a tarball (in this case tar xjf kile-2.1.3.tar.bz2), you make not want to install by hand. The README contains pretty standard build instructions, however. (I'd uninstall your system-installed version first.)

comment How do I set a “custom” browser as default in Preferred Applications
Thanks! This was driving me crazy, and I didn't notice the end of the MimeType line at first, starting with the x-scheme-hander stuff: that was the crucial addition in my case. (Ubuntu 12.10, using openbox as the WM.)

comment Gnome Terminal tabs ugly and oversized
I'd recommend tmux over screen: better (imo) windows ('tabs') and 'panes' (vertical and horizontal screen splitting. (I run emacs inside of a tmux session exclusively.)

comment open multiple instances of a (.pdf) file
I should also add (in case anyone else makes the same mistake) that not all pdf viewers like opening multiple copies of the same file (e.g., evince).

I'll be damned. I could've sworn that's what I did yesterday, but I must only tried && and ;. I feel like a fool, but thanks anyway!
