comment Targus usb 3.0 docking station support
Actually, it's exactly related. The Targus station requires DisplayLink drivers. This helped me figure out how to set up displays.

Same as @tim and adding the file didn't help.

Awesome. Macbooks don't have an "Insert" button....

I did EXACTLY the same thing. Typing "screen" defaults to Orca for some reason.

comment Recover clipboard after shutdown or system failure/freeze
Honestly, if we're talking about Malicious Mallory, there's a whole lot of other stuff I'm more concerned about than my clipboard like browsing history, downloads folder, ssh keys, etc. If you're really worried about Malicious Mallory, you'll have your storage encrypted.

comment How to set wifi driver settings to prefer 5 GHz channel above 2.4 GHz
Yikes. Seems it would be easier if we could just disable 2.4GHz globally.

comment How to set wifi driver settings to prefer 5 GHz channel above 2.4 GHz
@mchid, not sure where you got that idea. If I limit my wireless connection to ONE mac address, when I go to a different building or different floor (where that ONE mac address isn't available), I won't be able to connect until I update my network settings to accept a different mac address (which I will have to update again when I go back to my desk). And I haven't even mentioned how to find which mac IDs are 5ghz vs 2.4ghz (that dropdown lists 100s of mac IDs, not just the two you mention).

asked Is there a way to disable the 2.4 GHz wifi band without specifying specific BSSID's to connect to?

This doesn't really work when your company/school has 100+ access points across multiple buildings and floors...

@Wolfer - your comment was likely the answer. Why don't you add the answer and I'll accept it.

comment Why is system asking me to authenticate before shutting down?
I think that's probably the answer. After reboot, it was back to normal. I also did a LOT of updates (from 14.04 to 14.04.3), so it's very possible that the updates started a daemon via sudo.

Oops. I guess I shouldn't have restarted. facepalm
