My computing experience dates back to the eighties when DOS was brand new and home machines ran on CP/M. From building my own systems I have some understanding in hardware and other complicated things but it is my believe that an OS has to be easy to use and to configure. That's why I use Ubuntu.

comment How can I add a custom item to the Sound Indicator (and make it clickable more than once)?
Same here - I've no idea what else we might shutdown by this. A better solution would be to write an application/script that is controlled by DBus - I guess this is a lot more work.

See also: askubuntu.com/questions/46588/how-to-automount-ntfs-partitions. It may be a good idea to not use special characters or blanks in mount points or disk labels.

comment How do I switch to another audio output sink in XFCE?
Thank you for sharing your script. For connecting a Bluetooth headset you may want to install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth package. Automatic connection can be achieved with pactl load-module module-switch-on-connect. You may also be interested in bt-autoconnect for connecting while a stream is playing.
