comment Running a .desktop file in the terminal
Thanks for the code - I'm on Lucid, and I simply saved this as /usr/bin/xdg-openpy, and gave it a chmod +x - and used launcher.launch([],context) instead of ...None,context) (because of "TypeError: argument 1: Must be sequence, not NoneType"). Now xdg-openpy app.desktop works from command line (and all as normal when double-clicking app.desktop), and it can remind me if I try to call in terminal xdg-open and press tab. Cheers!

comment SteelSeries Sensei side buttons freezes the mouse
I was wondering how that nice USB sniff log was obtained, so I hope it's OK to jot it down here: managed to find relevant info here and here. I found sudo tshark -i usbmon2 -V in Ubuntu produces that kind of log directly in terminal's stdout. Cheers!
