Welcome to the site. Good things to check. NOTE: this site is devoted to ubuntu, so don't include windows instructions.

comment Xorg eating my CPU - how do I fix or at least diagnose the problem?
@aquaherd - closing firefox did the trick. However, my job is web-based, so avoiding firefox isn't a solution. How do I fix it?

@the_Seppi when I pull up the "additional drivers" in settings, it says "no proprietary drives in use" and "no additional drivers available" if that helps.

From lspci: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RV710 [Radeon HD 4550] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) I don't know how to tell what driver I'm using.

That did it. For posterity, ssh -L 1631:192.168.0.1:631 username@10.0.0.3 BTW, is port forwarding what this is called?

comment What is the difference between “Redirection” and “Pipe”?
@Sridhar-Sarnobat no, the tee command does something different. tee writes output to both the screen (stdout) and the file. Redirect does only the file.

@zoig: welcome to ask ubuntu. While it is correct, this answer would be more useful if you describe how to check the filesystem.

comment Is a reboot the only way to get back into the GUI after pressing “CTRL+ALT+F12”?
Hmm - I would assume it would work there, although I don't know for sure. What happens when you hit CtrlAltF1? Does it bring up a mostly black screen with a login prompt?

comment Keep windows from jumping workspaces when they request focus
@user2532531 This question is for Ubuntu 10.04, which almost certainly is not what you're using. Also, if I remember correctly, I was using xubuntu, not straight ubuntu, although I didn't tag that into the ticket. At this point, I'm using xubuntu 12.04, and the above answer still applies to xubuntu 12.04
