comment Execute command before shutdown/reboot
I put a script in /etc/rc6.d and it did not run on shutdown. I put it in /etc/rc0.d and it did run on shutdown. Probably, rc.6 is only for reboot.

I don't find this option in my smartphone. But this is probably a question for another forum... Thanks.

comment Downloading photos from smartphone
I clicked some buttons on the smartphone, and finally something happened: I saw a new wired connection. Now, I see two wired connections: Wired connection 1 "Ethernet (eth0)" - my default internet connection, and Wired connection 2 "Etnernet (usb0)". Is there a way to access the photos on my smartphone through this new connection?

I did this. The final message was "udev stop/waiting... udev start/running, process 10339". Then I plugged the device out and in again, and... nothing happened. lsusb still shows the same output (only the device number changes - it is now "Device 016". The number grows by 1 whenever I disconnect and connect the USB).

Based on your first answer, what worked for me is: "sudo `which tlmgr` install"

This did not work for me, so I closed the file and re-opened it, and then it worked.

I tried this solution but it installed an old version of dropbox (1.4) which is not functioning correctly.

comment “Connection is Untrusted ” error in Firefox
What a wonderful Hashgacha Pratit! A relative of mine had exactly the same problem, and I found your answer 3 hours after you published it. The link you supplied: members.neto.net.il/?a=members/cert worked perfectly.

comment Dropbox syncing never finishes
Thanks, I used this link: dropbox.com/install?os=lnx and the problem was solved. The only problem is that the changes I made to my Dropbox folder before the install, got mixed up with changes I made from other computers..

Why not use KeePassX on both systems? Their website has a Windows version: keepassx.org/downloads

Indeed, the version in "systemtap-sdt-dev" does not support the "-n" option
