comment 14.04 with FDE and swap is missing
@nstenz: I edited the answer to remove the unnecessary steps about enabling and disabling the root account. Also, I assumed that kasiu meant dev/sdaX on the first two code lines, so edited sdX to sdaX.

comment After installing nginx with Passenger support in '/opt', why won't it start from 'init.d'?
Good advice. Note: the URL of the init file has permanently moved to https://www.linode.com/docs/assets/660-init-deb.sh.

@VictorSergienko That worked for me. Why not submit it as an answer? I'll vote for it.

The package description could certainly explain this better.

"Deprecated", not "depreciated".

comment How to grep for tabs without using literal tabs and why does \t not work?
Indeed, I suggest that @enzotib edit the answer to be simply grep $'\t'.

comment Failed to open home directory
I also get run into this bug a couple of times a year. The umount didn't work for me; all that happens is that on restarting Thunar, the error is gone, but my home directory looks empty. Added on edit: I opened a new Thunar window, going directly to a subdirectory of my home directory, which was visible. Then up to the home directory, which was now visible. So the umount did work, but not immediately. Strange.

comment How to change tooltip background color in Unity?
It was actually enough to follow jgreen's answer and change only one line in one file.
