comment How do I get help on apt-get's install subcommand?
Thanks, you are right. I am still perplexed as to why isn't this option listed under apt-get -h then or in the manpage synopsis. This way I really have to go reading through the whole manpage to find any options relevant to the install subcommand (luckily I roughly knew what this one was called, but new users might not).

comment How can I limit the size of my ~/.cache folder
Thanks for you help, Oli. Yes, I see what you mean - it's a trade-off between having a more responsive OS and saving disk space. I'll think about the methods you suggested and see which one suits me best - probably the last one, as it's a laptop and I want to minimise re-computing stuff to save battery.

comment How can I limit the size of my ~/.cache folder
If I understood you correctly - I mostly put my machine to sleep whenever I can and only do a clean shutdown when I know I won't use it for some time (or I did some upgrades).

Another very helpful option I discovered is setxkbmap -query to print out the current settings in xkb's format, which helped me to configure my Apple keyboard as desired from the terminal.

comment How come all my window buttons are right aligned, but chrome buttons are on the left?
Ditto @Achim A. You just made a small mistake, as minimize follows close in other applications it should be: gconftool-2 --set /apps/metacity/general/button_layout --type string "close,minimize,maximize:"
