comment permission denied when starting android sdk
That guide is waaay to complicated. Installing Android Studio (=intellij) is quite easy: m.webupd8.org/2014/05/…. Let me know if it works out for you.

comment is this exotic resolution Dell U2913WM display supported?
I don't think he is wondering about his hardware, more likely drivers.

I have the LG34UM95-P (3440x1440) with a 780 Ti and it works flawlessly with the proprietary drivers, I don't know about the open source drivers.

It works, but I don't get why, the el stands for Emacs Lisp...

comment Problem binding a shortcut to a function / multimedia key
Thanks for your comment, I looked into it and it appears udev will be merged into systemd and keymap settings will be managed in hwdb instead. According to bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=168720 it is possible to extract findkeyboards from an older version of systemd, but I'm unsure the rest of the answer still applies...

Which Ubuntu are you using? It should be in there from 12.04 (packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=pkg-config)

comment How do I get Chrome App launcher?
If it can't be done on Ubuntu, that should be the answer. Marking the question as off-topic is wrong IMO. And in fact it can be done on Ubuntu (I'll post the answer when the question is reopened), so I'm voting to reopen.

Nice addition, but you might want to explain it more ;) (Also, letting newbies get into vi without warning? Ouch! :P)

This will not work because super:... is not an option for setxkbmap (all options can be found in /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.lst)

comment Anyone has successfully installed CUDA 5.5 on Ubuntu 13.10 64-bit?
The question asked specifically for Ubuntu 13.10, the instructions for 12.04 are on the CUDA website and are much simpler.

The use of service is preferred over /etc /init.d/, but this works as well.

comment Workflow for creating math heavy notes and review sheets on Linux
I can recommend Gummi (dev.midnightcoding.org/projects/gummi) it shows you the latex and pdf side by side, and the pdf updates automatically when you stop typing, totally awesome :) Alternatively have a look at Sublime Text 3, together with the LaTexTools plugin it makes a great LaTex Editor (supports vim bindings :) ) and it uses latexmk to build your document (latexmk is a must have).

comment How do I get a list of non-LTS packages installed efficiently?
@ignis You could use something like this (it's ugly, but does the job I think): dpkg -l | grep 'ii' | awk ' {print $2}' | xargs apt-cache show | grep 'Package:\|Supported:' | awk 'BEGIN{lts=false;p="Non-LTS packages:"} {if ($1 == "Package:"){ if (lts == false){print p}; p=$2 } else if ($0 == "Supported: 5y"){lts=true}} END {if (lts == false) print p}'
