comment How do I disable the blinking cursor in gnome-terminal?
I found this string in the source: "The possible values are \"system\" to use the global cursor blinking settings, or \"on\" or \"off\" to set the mode explicitly." It looks like the string should show somewhere (in gconf), although the descriptions string for the key are empty, they don't show.

comment How do I disable the blinking cursor in gnome-terminal?
I am trying to find the possible alternatives to "off" and "system". I still want a blinking cursor in the active terminal, only not in all the other ones.

This works fine, but restarting XMonad was not enough, I had to logout and in (I am on Ubuntu, with its login manager).

comment Xorg/Compiz is using massive amounts of CPU. What to do?
If you have nvidia drivers, you might want to try turning off "Sync to Vblank" in the nvidia settings as well.

comment glib.GError: No D-BUS daemon running
I still get many GConf warnings (failed to connect), but not the same reason (was "Connection refused", it's now "Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken." Emacs now starts reasonably fast in my ssh -X session, at least.

comment How do I create a permanent Bash alias?
@Geek @Zen "Execute" was not the correct term. The dot is equivalent to source. With . ~/.bashrc, you source your bash. Executing the file would start a child process, execute the commands in this process, then return. All that is done in the child process has no effect on the parent process (the bash from which you executed). Instead, sourcing (with the dot) acts exactly as if you wrote the content of the file in the terminal. This is what you want. .bashrc is sourced everytime you start a bash. If you make changes, they won't apply until you start a new bash or source manually.

comment What does 'without password' mean in sshd_config file?
So without-password means all methods allowed except password? It really sounds like "allowed to login without the need of a password".

This is almost as logical as clicking a "Start" button in order to shutdown.

comment How do I install and run a TFTP server?
On 14.04, this did not work for me. The info about /tftpboot in /etc/xinetd.d/tftp did not seem to matter. Instead, the client looks in the directory /srv/tftp as specified in /etc/inetd.conf. I don't if the way things are setup changed since the article, or if I screwed up somehow. If the answer above does not work for you, try putting your test file in /srv/tftp instead.

comment How do I install and run a TFTP server?
@Mohammad Rafiee: the blog post linked to here added some info: run sudo chmod -R 777 /tftpboot between step 1 and 2 of "Testing our tftp server". Not that it helped me, but it looks like it helped others.

comment apt-get remove does not remove
So, this worked. BUT, I thought that was not necessary, since sudo apt-get remove dhcp3-server said: Note, selecting 'isc-dhcp-server' instead of 'dhcp3-server'. It sounds like apt tried to remove isc-dhcp-server, but did not manage. I had to write it. Since apt seemed to have made the connection not only on install but also on remove, why couldn't it remove it?
