comment ATI Catalyst doesn't retain changes after reboot when setting extended display
Thanks, this is a really stupid bug still present in whatever version of fglrx is in Ubuntu 12.10. I've just been resetting the setting each time on boot which is a huge pain.

comment How can I install software without using dpkg or APT?
It might be a good idea to use checkinstall when installing from source although if dpkg is broken that might not help you remove things.

comment How do you use an android tablet as a second display?
This seems like a way more seamless way to do it than the Synergy trick, nice! I'm curious how the extra virtual space will interact with my tiling window manager though. Will give this a shot in a little while and report back.

comment Choose gcc and g++ version
The numbers are priorities as it turns out, according to the manpage. I imagine in the case that one of the version is uninstalled it will use those priorities to determine which one should become the new default.

comment Is having Unity/awesome wm together possible? how can I do this?
I think the best situation right now is to use Awesome with Gnome: awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/Quickly_Setting_up_Awesome_with_Gnome . I would love to have the Unity Dash with Awesome though and maybe the sidebar icons too but I'd rather have tiling than a fancy search box. I think there are other tools that do similar things to the Dash though.

comment Remove ugly fat bazel from gnome-terminal with multiple-tabs
Heh true, but Mark Shuttleworth replied a year ago asking if that fix could be incorporated into Ubuntu, and it wasn't ;)

comment Remove ugly fat bazel from gnome-terminal with multiple-tabs
Hmm, it seems to make the bezel quite small for me in both gnome-terminal and gnome-terminator. Thanks for pointing this out! I find it kind of hilarious that even Mark Shuttleworth can post a bug to launchpad and have it not fixed 2 years later ;)

Pretty sure sysfs stuff's permissions are not persistent so there's not really any better way to do it.

I think you mean "Indicator Applet Complete", and thanks! This worked for me too.

comment Awesome-WM inside gnome-shell -> Get rid of top panels
To add on to that, the system tray is probably inside Awesome's wibox which is under the gnome panel, so I would disable Awesome's wibox because presumably one of the main reasons you're using Awesome inside Gnome instead of standalone is to get the gnome panel stuff.
