comment How to change number of workspaces from command line?
As I understand, gsettings is a preferred over dconf. It offers higher-level access to the dconf database. But I might be wrong.

comment Can I enable bash-completion for the new apt command?
@Oli Oh, you are right! I didn't know about it. And - bash-completion doesn't support it out of the box so far. Fortunately it wouldn't be that difficult to write a plugin, so you can expect one soon. Chances are, that using my script you would be among the first, who can use it.

@Oli Well, I guess they do. There are files aptitude, apt-get and apt-cache. What exactly do you mean by apt completion?

comment lxc container creation fails with `call to cgmanager_move_pid_abs_sync(blkio) failed: invalid request` (…)
@Braiam I understand. I use classical, stand-alone Ubuntu 14.04 installed on a physical notebook as a LXC host.

@Braiam no. I didn't try LXC on VMWare/VirtualBox guest, if that is what you ask. But why is that relevant? LXC should be independent from hardware virtualization.

comment How to add “exotic” keyboard layouts on Ubuntu?
Looks promising, but I fear that it may not do stuff "the Ubuntu way", and so might interfere with the system components. I've never tried it, though.

ATM Keytouch doesn't exist on Ubuntu's repositories for Trusty.

comment Any chance of installing Ubuntu on existing bcache device formatted with btrfs?
@ignis You are right. I don't think that these two mix up well due to some bugs. I had to scrap my btrfs root partition because of this. My experience is similar to this one: webcache.googleusercontent.com/…

comment Any chance of installing Ubuntu on existing bcache device formatted with btrfs?
@psusi Oh. Do you know then, how to load the bcache module and rescan all the block devices to identify bcache volumes inside them? I tried hard to read everything about bcache usage on the web, and couldn't find anything equivalent to e.g. pvscan for lvm2.

@psusi bcache doesn't work until you reboot - it needs to add a kernel module. So you need modify the dvd in a way that survives reboots.

That would solve the problem. I don't have any expertise in mastering livedvds, but I'll look into it.

Yes, it works! It is a great alternative to the mdms /etc/mdm/PostLogin/ scripts in Ubuntu's world!!

comment Which is better for a home media server: zfs or btrfs or LVM/md?
I understand that the idea is to have a site with questions and answers, that can be used in more-or-less timeless fashion. If you ask for an opinion, then the relevance of the answers will change pretty soon. The solution to your problem is some web forum. On forum the threads are expected to die on its own and never be resurrected, just like a phone conversation with someone.

comment Which is better for a home media server: zfs or btrfs or LVM/md?
At the momment BTRFS doesn't support RAID-5/6 well enough for me and no wonder it is still labelled as "experimental feature". I also tried to choose between the old soft-raid and BTRFS on top, with the pure btrfs-based solution, and come to conclusion that the critical features wouldn't get to the next LTS release, see the phoronix article phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTU2NDQ.

comment How do I setup an encrypted swap file?
This encrypted swap is the only secure option for hibernation. With a little change to /etc/crypttab and a startup script (to ask user for mount password)
