comment How to fix “sudo: unable to open … Read-only file system”?
But... -M will skip mounted file systems, including /dev/sda1 (or what ever mounted drive includes /var/lib/sudo/... ). @MarkKramer: I highly recommend always setting the root password when installing linux, with sudo su; passwd. Then you can use su -c fsck -Af -M.

comment Adding OCR info to a PDF
This is really great, thank you. However, it appears to modify the images, looks like it runs an unsharp mask over them or something. Is there a way to leave the images exactly as they previously were? In my particular instance, the filter even managed to remove the bar from a couple of fractions in some equations. Everything else works pretty well though...

comment Peer To Peer (P2P) Sync and Share Ubuntu
Are you sure that this isn't a paid advertisement? Also, I can't see anywhere that says that this is P2P. If it's not, it doesn't answer the question. If it is P2P, then what are you paying $10/month for??

comment How can I reduce the file size of a scanned PDF file?
This is the right answer for this question (compressing a pdf that is mostly bitmap data). I found that the screen setting was too low quality for me, but ebook worked well, cutting a 33Mb scan-based PDF down to 3.6Mb, and keeping it very readable. Other options for the -dPDFSETTINGS option are listed here: milan.kupcevic.net/ghostscript-ps-pdf, and it might be a good idea to include them in this answer.

comment Moving from bash to zsh
@MariusGedminas: (from here) zsh does support this, but you have to enable it manually. Just add source /etc/zsh_command_not_found to your .zshrc.

comment Laptop USB ports stop working: how to restart them without restarting the PC?
Posting here because I have a similar issue in trusty (hence the newer question that this is marked duplicate of is not relevant, but I can't post an answer, because this one is closed). I got USB restarted with the script at billauer.co.il/blog/2013/02/usb-reset-ehci-uhci-linux - I just used sudo -s and pasted the main for loop of that script. Spits out some file-not-found errors, but still works.
