comment How to change bluetooth device name?
Thank you very much! This is more like the Ubuntu-way ( more user-friendly ;-) than other answers, and the latest version 1.23 has this feature via menu Adapter → Preferences → Friendly Name. Further info: github.com/blueman-project/blueman

comment Is it possible to rotate a video using avidemux command line?
Thanks, I couldn't find avidemux cli solution since then but I wrote a Nautilus Script using ffmpeg instead (somehow managed to preserve video quality) but after your reminder I've now changed it to avconv which is indeed better.

comment Where can I download the newest boot repair disk?
You can get a better answer if you provide more info, like if you mention whether you have separate root and home partitions or not, if you intend to do an upgrade or a fresh install, etc...

comment what is difference between these command?
I remember that in some cases (bash scripts) $HOME/<Some Directory or File> didn't work and I had to use /home/$USER/<Some Directory or File> instead. This is also true for ~/<Some Directory or File> So there must be certain differences where it's advisable to use one and not the other (which I don't know) - am I wrong?

comment Why does a bash-zenity script has that title on Unity Panel and that icon on Unity Launcher?
For the record; to achieve the same result with a Nautilus Script one needs to create a .desktop file like the one above, adding an extra line "NoDisplay=true" - and it might perhaps be a good idea also to hide such "fake application .desktop files".
