comment How can I get TTYs to work with NVIDIA drivers?
@hatterman, no, they definitely enabled, because typing commands blindly still works. They just aren't being displayed. This is apparently a common problem with NVIDIA drivers.

@Alex, that didn't seem to have any effect. I also tried logging in blindly, entering those commands, then entering my sudo password, and that also didn't seem to have any effect.

@hatterman, it's not that TTYs aren't enabled, it's that the display is black when I switch to them.

Yep. In the edit above I show which version (nvidia-340). I'm using neither KDE nor Unity, but that shouldn't matter, since TTYs should be before/behind any desktop environment anyway.

I tried those. No effect--the screen is still black.

comment system settings won't start
I don't have any packages named bumblebee* installed, so probably not.

comment How can I map the Apple Magic Mouse two-finger swipe to a web browser's back and forward functions?
I don't want to be able to map a pointer movement to an action, but map a movement on the mouse's surface (without the pointer moving) to an action.

The Magic Mouse isn't reported as a trackpad, but as a mouse. It also isn't one of the touchégg supported devices.

As far as I can tell, touchégg works with trackpads, but not with mice.

comment How can I get Firefox to open torrent files with Transmission?
Although IMO the dash still isn't nearly as powerful as Kupfer, which has had torrent searching for years.

There is no type called "BitTorrent see file" in my list of content types, nor does there appear to be a way to add a new content type.

I'm looking for a way to open .torrent files, not magnet files.

@Braiam, it says application/x-bittorrent.

.torrent files. I'll edit the question to reflect this.

comment How can I enable remote login in 13.10?
Thanks for the other options, but what I'd really like to do is get the "remote login" from the login screen (lightdm) working.

comment How can I run python scripts on my webserver?
I just want to be able to run a simple python script on a web server. I'm just using the standard apache2 that comes with ubuntu and the stock configuration. I don't know the difference between cgi and wsgi, and so I'm not married to CGI, but I don't want to have to configure a big framework, apache modules, or other complicated things just to be able to see "Hello World" in my browser window.

comment Wifi disconnects every so often with Broadcom BCM4331, even with 13.04.
How do I install this source? I installed the package and rebooted but there doesn't seem to be any change.

comment Endless swap operation slows computer to a halt. How to fix?
The problem is not that the swap partition is used, it's that it completely freezes the computer, to the point where I have to hard-reboot it. That shouldn't happen on any operating system. So it's not that I have too many programs open, it's that my Ubuntu configuration can't handle swapping, has problems with RAM, or there's something else amiss.

comment How to install jekyll?
That worked. I also had to add the gem directory to my PATH, though, in order to be able to run jekyll from the command-line. I also had to uninstall the ubuntu package version, which doesn't have the new subcommand.

comment How to install jekyll?
Ubuntu 13.04. I installed ruby the usual way: sudo apt-get install ruby.
