comment pg_ctl: command not found, what package has this command?
There's a reason pg_ctl for a particular pg version (e.g. 9.1, 9.4) is not in your $PATH on Ubuntu. If you upgrade Ubuntu, multiple pg versions may be running, and only pg_ctlcluster will take care of all of them. See @PeterEisentraut's more canonical answer.

comment Reverse two finger scroll direction (natural scrolling)?
Yea, but yours would match a completely different set of strings than mine. Yours would exclude all strings with "Circular". Mine would exclude only those with "Circular" immediately preceding the "Scrolling". Mine is definitely uglier, but it behaves differently, and it's the only one I've tested and made sure is correct enough (it worked on my machine).

comment Reverse two finger scroll direction (natural scrolling)?
Actually, I was trying to negate one part of the regex and not the other, so no joy on the @joeytwiddle simplification. Regex's don't do negation combined with nonnegation well (-Perl or otherwise)

comment How do you revert the control keys back to “normal” operation?
unfortunately in 13.04 that flashing pointer option is no longer available in the Trackpad/Mouse settings (or I'm bling and can't find it). so my setting is permanently turned on until I can find it in gconf.

comment How can I receive syslog logs from a networked system?
Also may need to change the ownership of your log file: sudo chown syslog:adm /var/log/syslog or whatever you've named your log file.

My Motorola Surfboard Extreme SBG901 seems to have similar settings to your DD-WRT. Just thought I'd add that keyword for others googling for this q/a.
