comment Correct password is not accepted for Evolution
Apart from what Anders pointed out in his answer, could it be you've got some "special characters" in your password? I've had a similar issue when setting up Evolution to work with my ownCloud account while having a $ in my password. Changing my password to a different one not including that solved the problem for me.

comment Software recommendations for writing a novel?
LibreOffice (which you are already using) also supports the concept of "Global Documents" consisting of multiple sub-documents. It's more than 15 years ago I've used that (back with its pre-decessor StarOffice on DOS), but it should be worth a try: Make each chapter a separate document to deal with, and whenever you need the whole thing, call up the global "master document".

comment How to remove typed-in URLs from browser history in Firefox?
Thanks for the explanation, @Nattgew – I was just about to ask if that shouldn't read "42" instead ;) // user283259: Still open question to me, how to calculate that number so it kicks off only those URLs I want to get rid off. My question was not about disabling auto-complete generally, but just to remove several URLs from appearing within (quoting from the question: switching auto-complete off altogether is no option for me). So does your answer fit that – and if so, how?

comment Why are none of my startup commands being executed?
.profile is executed at login, .bashrc whenever you start a new bash shell (and there's also the .xprofile, executed on start of the X-Window session). And you might have needed to add the sh because you didn't make startup.sh executable (chmod +x startup.sh).

comment Why are none of my startup commands being executed?
Back to the .bashrc (or .profile) suggestion. If I got that right, the password was the only issue there. If so, you could define this command for your user not requiring a sudo password (via a corresponding line in /etc/sudoers.d/user-alias, e.g. dave ALL = NOPASSWD: /home/dave/startup.sh, and then execute sudo /home/dave/startup.sh from your .bashrc/.profile.

comment In Ubuntu, is there any terminal that allows for the position of the cursor to be moved with the mouse?
For native terminal, you will probably have no luck. See the mouse section in the terminal howto of The Linux Documentation Project.
