comment Can't log Out of Xubuntu
That's very clear, but I still want some other features from the session management (like suspend). Why doesn't the logout work and how can I investigate this further?

comment RipOff 0.8.3 not finding ANY plugins
I have the same problem. Note that the mp3 library is installed at /usr/lib/${arch}/plugins/liblame.so, whereas ripoff is actually looking at /usr/lib/ripoff/plugins/ - symlinking it there doesn't help though; ripoff seems to scan that directory for files but not actually load the plugins from it...

comment NetworkManager not remembering passwords

Obvious note that to fix this, you need to remove those lines from the mimeapps.list file

comment Keyboard shortcuts not working anymore in xfce
I have the same problem which started recently on Ubuntu 14.04. Some keys work (Alt-F4) but not all (Alt-F2), and I think none of the keys I set in the XFCE keyboard shortcuts work

comment How do I make Thunderbird open links in Chromium?
Helpful to use x-www-browser; however setting the above preference didn't make a difference for me - setting the warn value as recommended by Vitaly did

comment How to use the latest version of flash on Ubuntu?
Note that this is an alternative flash implementation, not the latest official flash version; of course it does achieve what the question asks
