comment Does “old” rsh exist in Ubuntu?
Many thanks, @GeraldSchneider - indeed, just installed it, and now rsh is not ssh anymore; and there is a rsh-server package too... Could you post this as an answer so I can accept it?

Thanks for this writeup - I found that documentation really cryptic; and your example here really helped. Cheers!

comment Fonts in menu are larger than they should be under Awesome WM
Just wanted to say thanks - and also, if you're just experimenting and resources aren't an issue - one can also run gnome-settings-daemon to theme application fonts running in awesome-wm (but apparently, this doesn't include possible theming of application buttons; e.g. firefox keeps its (apparently) original forward and back buttons). Thanks again - cheers!

comment How to autostart a .sh after login?
I would believe, /etc/rc.local runs before X does (and thus, even before the login greeter); which means /etc/rc.local is not appropriate for doing things "after login".

comment KEY.is_pressed() in gi.repository.Gdk?
Just to note my logistics demands for the same kind of problem: I am developing a plugin for a pygtk app; the app itself registers as a listener for a given shortcut. I'd like the plugin to do different things, based on whether the keys for that shortcut are still held or not - however, it seems that I'd have to change the core of the application, to have a management based on press/release events. If I had a way to "peek" into status of keyboard keys at any time - then the plugin could have used that, instead of changing the application core.
