Thanks a lot. Running a command in debian/rules is indeed a nice strategy that works fine.

comment Is it possible to downgrade gcc 4.6.1 to 4.4.x?
@mac It's a shame the old link doesn't work anymore. I've updated the response to point to link you suggested since it provides a good explanation of what has to be done indeed. Thanks.

comment Low timeout threshold for double-click mouse event
The mouse seems to be back and I'm no longer getting the same problem. However, your answer seems reasonable, so I'm going to accept it. If I get the same problem again, I'll update the question if this doesn't work. Thanks!

comment What to do regarding BackDoor.Wirenet.1
@Glutanimate Looks like this does the job: sudo ufw reject out to 212.7.208.65. You can test by trying to ping to that IP later.

comment How does Middle Click paste work?
I prefer to disable clipboard synchronization because sometimes I want to copy something with Ctrl-C, select the text I want to replace and hit Ctrl-V. With clipboard synchronization what I would get is the same text I selected, not the one that I copied.

comment How to measure desktop login time with bootchart
You can use pybootchartgui to programmatically access the bootchart data (not sure how useful that could be though). By the way, I see it's been integrated into a single project in bootchart2.

Even if web browser don't follow it nowadays, I think it's good to point out that the XDG Base Directory Specification should be the answer to this question.

comment Should I use jigit to save bandwidth when downloading daily CD images?
In the daily image page I see both .jigdo and .zsync files, so I guess you can use any of them if you like. This answer can be useful for further information about both tools.

comment Should I use jigit to save bandwidth when downloading daily CD images?
In summary, you need to install jigdo-file package and use jigdo-lite command (jigit package seems to contain tools to create the images, not to download them).
