comment How to save VPN passwords with NetworkManger for nmcli?
Didn't work for me. As root I got: (process:2034): libnm-glib-WARNING **: async_got_type: could not read properties for /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/4: Method "Get" with signature "ss" on interface "org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties" doesn't exist Error: Connection activation failed: Creating object for path '/org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/4' failed in libnm-glib. As user "me", it opened the login dialog on the remote desktop.

comment How to save VPN passwords with NetworkManger for nmcli?
Didn't work for me here on now 15.04. If I ran nmcli con up id MyVPN as my own user, the password dialog still appears on the remote machine's desktop. Running sudo nmcli con up id MyVPN gave first (process:3320): libnm-glib-WARNING **: async_got_type: could not read properties for /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/7: Method "Get" with signature "ss" on interface "org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties" doesn't existand then Error: Connection activation failed: Creating object for path '/org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/7' failed in libnm-glib.

comment How to enter password on console with NetworkManager's nmcli
I just tried --ask which is in Ubuntu 15.04. If I run this from a console over ssh, then the dialog asking for the password still appears on the remote desktop, not where I can see it in the ssh session. :-( If I had access to the remote desktop, I wouldn't need nmcli

@Thor Thanks, I know about tmux and I "consider" it, but on average tend to forget / not bother :-)

comment Resuming a vim session I have accidentally Disconnected from
This is GREAT. Now if I loose network connectivity, I can resume vim after logging in again without having to resort to killing vim and cleaning up with vim -r. Wish I could give more than one up-vote!

comment How can I tell which DNS servers DNSMasq is using?
No, I'm affraid this is not true for my stock 14.04 Ubuntu/Unity installation. I'm using dnsmasq, and /etc/resolv.conf just has: nameserver 127.0.1.1.

comment Repeated keystrokes lost in Unity
+1 I think I was messing with x11vnc from a remote host, after which keyboard repeating stopped working. Toggling Key presses repeat when key is held down also worked for me.

comment Window tiling (Move-to-{corner,side}) shortcuts in Ubuntu 13.04
The problem I have with this solution is that it not only moves a window, but also resizes it. :-(

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.
