comment Command-line to list DNS servers
This doesn't work for me. With a vpnc VPN connected, nm-tool shows the original DNS server, but the VPN's DNS server is not listed. So it might work some of the time but is not reliable in every case.

comment Command-line to list DNS servers
This doesn't work for me. With a vpnc VPN connected, nmcli dev list iface eth0 shows the original DNS server, but the VPN's DNS server is not listed, even if I use tun0 for <interfacename>. So it might work some of the time but is not reliable in every case.

comment Reading network-manager password from another hdd
I have neither ~/.gconf/system/networking nor ~/.conf directories. I believe Network Manager stores passwords in gnome-keyring by default.

comment Keyboard shortcut for pasting the primary selection
Here on Ubuntu 12.04 Precise, I did: Open "Keyboard" from Unity ( == Settings / Keyboard). Shortcuts tab, '+' for Add Shortcut, and assign sh -c 'xsel | xvkbd -xsendevent -file - 2>/dev/null' as the command to my chosen key (CTRL-ALT-V). I also had to remove -xsendevent.

comment What screenshot tools are available?
scrot rocks! I had the problem that ImageMagick's import command takes bad screenshot when running Compiz. scrot doesn't.

comment Generating list of manually installed packages and querying individual packages
On my system, aptitude search '!~M ~i' shows exactly 1583 lines, many more than also I expected. But so does apt-mark showmanual, so at least they agree.
