comment How to configure Geany to wrap lines?
@v2r - actually it did; this was the only thing that worked for me, after all the other answers on this page failed to enable word wrapping. So I added a screenshot to this post just to make it clearer. Cheers!

comment Pencil export page as PNG does not work
Unfortunately, this didn't work for me with the latest 2.0.5 xpi - it worked as plugin in Firefox 39, but not as standalone; to get the standalone, I had to use the fork github.com/prikhi/pencil, do the ./build.sh linux, and then /path/to/firefox --app Outputs/Linux/application.ini --console --no-shared from the same, build directory - that both ran, and did the export correctly.

@rubo77 - check related superuser.com/questions/636562/… , there is a bit about webmin there (almost, but not quite, a GUI)

comment How to uninstall apps installed through Firefox Marketplace?
I tried Firefox Marketplace app on Ubuntu 11.04 with Gnome2 classic, and there is no unity launcher icon added there, unfortunately...

comment Going to the parent directory of a file with cd?
Thanks, was looking for something like this - I bump into bash: cd: Not a directory more often than I'd like to; this might help. Cheers!

comment How can I modify Firefox safe-mode to allow one extension to function?
Debugging is exactly what I'd need this facility for; right now I have +10 addons, and one (or combo) of them is causing Firefox to freeze on certain sites - sites which otherwise don't show a problem with -safe-mode. So, if I could start "safe mode", as in "blank slate" from command line, and then selectively enable addons on the command line, I'd have a quick way to rerun individual addons, and see what causes the problem. GUIs are expensive - about:addons tends to freeze my Firefox on my PC for about 15+ seconds, before it ends up reading everything and lets me go on...

comment SVN and GNOME Keyring
Unfortunately, adding this line gives me: svn: ~/.subversion/config:17: Option expected and svn refuses to proceed... what worked for me was mv ~/.gnome2/keyrings/login.keyring ~/.gnome2/keyrings/_login.keyring as per Being prompted for '(null)' GNOME keyring - Stack Overflow; but then SVN insists on storing the password, once it passes, to a new Gnome keyring - which I don't want (I want to be asked each time, as when I use SVN over ssh), but that's another issue...

comment var/cache/apt/archives occupying huge space
Even if this is what I also remembered from way back - turns out, for me (on 11.04) autoclean did NOT remove files in /var/cache/apt/archives/ - while clean did...

comment How do I temporarily run an FTP server?
paste.ubuntu.com/542726 and paste.ubuntu.com/542852 are dead, unfortunately... also, ftpserver.py changed, and apparently the above post doesn't hold anymore (last standalone revision seems to be r1116, with this diff). I have made an edit to the post with a new script (will be invisible until peer review)

comment Is there an apt command to download a deb file from the repositories to the current directory?
Just wanted to note that this solution will also insist on package removal (e.g. if you change version via /etc/apt/sources.list to a newer one, with the intent to download later packages) - in such a case, the wget method above may be more useful, if you don't want to remove anything...

comment Opening cursor files in a graphics editor?
Many thanks for the answer, @Braiam - I want to open and look at the images (and potentially paste them), so xcursorgen wouldn't have helped me much; my experience with GursorMaker and XMC plugin are posted in the OP edit - GursorMaker seems too old even for 11.04; however XMC worked fine. Thanks again - cheers!
