comment Sync Evolution with Android apps through Owncloud or other centralised online source
Meanwhile DAVdroid supports syncinc tasks (see: davdroid.bitfire.at/configuration). Using the tasks of ownCloud also works with Evolution via CalDAV (same URL pattern as described on the mentioned DAVdroid page, just with caldav:// as protocol. I've checked the "secure connection" as well, works for me). Using OC's calendar and contacts with Evo; the latter sometimes require a restart of Evo to refresh (when new entries added from the other end), and I get error messages when adding entries in Evo (still seems to work). No other apps tried with Evo yet.

comment Disabling Zeitgeist
@mondjunge I'm afraid I don't know. Stopped caring for that years ago (in fact, after this answer). Will never ever install Unity again (in fact, my next installations won't even be Ubuntu anymore). Like you, I don't want stuff I cannot control be installed on my device without obvious and user-friendly ways to deactivate/remove it. Having had 3 independent "desktop agents" forced on me that way (Zeitgeist, Akonadi, Nepomuk) with dependencies making an easy uninstall/deactivation impossible was enough for me. I hate when others decide what I have to like :)

comment Disabling Zeitgeist
@mondjunge they don't do that for me. I did as described in my answer, and was not bothered since.

comment How do I make the F-keys work in byobu, for midnight commander (mc), htop, etc?
Any way to extend that to Shift-Fx? Even with Byobu keybindings disabled, Shift-Fx seem to be "blind" (don't work). Tried Esc--Shift-4, no effect.

comment How do I make the F-keys work in byobu, for midnight commander (mc), htop, etc?
Dustin, while that works fine for most keys, Shift-Fx seems to be completely ignored by mc when running in Byobu (with Tmux here). I can understand that for shift-F12 (for obvious reasons) – but what do I miss for e.g. Shift-F3 or Shift-F4 (which I frequently need)?

comment How do I change my default browser?
Got your point, Adrian – just sitting in the same boat. Still, that didn't solve it for me. What solved it, was this answer. But that might be due to the fact I'm using LXDE as desktop.

comment Evolution apparently deleting messages from inbox
I could also think of the integrated Bayes filter. To narrow it down, you could disable all filters in edit › accounts › receive and reset (plus uncheck) the "unwanted" folder in presets. The "reset" should take care for the Bayes stuff; I'm not sure how to completely deactivate that (the filter part should do that, though).

comment How to install Intrusion Detection system in Ubuntu 12.04
Well, you might at least rawly point out what it includes (maybe with some Wikipedia links to those products – I've only found Aanval there) plus a few words – I mean, Snort is widely known, the others I've not even heard of before), if it requires 5 years IT studies to deal with... So one knows at least what to expect and, if the page disappears one day, has some idea what to google for ;)

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.

comment How to remove typed-in URLs from browser history in Firefox?
Thanks for your answer, Jacques – but I don't want to disable auto-suggest completely. My goal was just to keep some URLs from being included here.
