comment Is there software that can fill PDF forms?
This software was easy to install and worked for me. I was able to add text and images on top of the PDF and export it back to PDF format.

comment How to force logout of Kubuntu local desktop user
SIGTERM is the default signal, so the -TERM option can be omitted and you can just use sudo killall -u adam.

comment 10 million files in one folder
Another option for caching that would fit your model better might be memcached or redis. They are key value stores (so they act like a single directory and you access items just by name). Redis is persistent (won't lose data when it is restarted) where as memcached is for more temporary items.

That worked. Can you explain why that is necessary?

I tried that, but I got warnings and errors. I updated the question with them if you could provide any more guidance.

comment How to use American English spelling dictionary in Firefox?
If the problem is that the dictionary keeps getting reset to something other than US English, then this question may have the answer you are looking for: How can I change Firefox's default dictionary?

comment How to install lightdm-set-defaults?
To my knowledge, lightdm-set-defaults just edited the configuration files and did not cause any changes to the running instance of lightdm. Even with that command, you still would have had to restart lightdm for your changes to take effect.
