comment Using GNU Screen with 256 colors
This worked. But adding the other stuff to ~/.screenrc makes everything output escape sequences instead of colors, like some sort of alien terminal.

comment installing win7 x64 in VirtualBox - error driver device missing
Seems like corruption was the culprit for me too. I tried another disk and it worked fine.

comment Is there a terminal command that will click the mouse?
Do you know how to run this command inside a desktop (e.g. Mate or Gnome)? For example, if I set this command to a keyboard shortcut in Mate it doesn't do anything. It only works if I execute it at command line.

comment How do I use 'chmod' on an NTFS (or FAT32) partition?
So this will allow you to arbitrarily set permissions like chmod 655 /some/file on the NTFS partition mounted in Linux? I'm trying to figure out how to merge my home partition from linux into c:\Users. Will using usermap allow me to retain all the permissions? I was planning on mounting the c:\Users directory to /home in linux.

comment NTFS Corruption: Files created in Linux corrupted when Windows Boots
Interesting. I haven't experienced any problems with ntfs-3g yet. I have a 1TB NTFS hard drive that is full to the brim with no problem at all from Linux.

comment Using a folder on an ntfs partition as /home

comment Broadcom Wi-Fi Adapter not recognized
I have the same problem here in Arch Linux. This BCM43241 wifi card just seems to be completely non-existent when in Arch, but it works just fine in Windows.

comment How to control internet access for each program?
"Can simply run another"???? Then obviously the creator of such a program that doesn't block the child processes of the target program is vastly flawed.

comment KDE, GNOME Popularity comparison
It's easy to see why Gnome has historically (before Gnome 3) been the preferred DE to bundle with distributions: because it's easier to use and learn, unlike KDE, which has many bells and whistles and a higher learning curve (not to mention that out of the box KDE newcomers will wonder where the heck their desktop icons are).

Haven't tried it yet, but does this work with USB Hard Drives, not just sticks?

comment Is there an alternative to rEFIt?
@RodSmith Is it possible to install rEFInd on a CD and use it like that, instead of installing it on my OSX hard disk?
