comment Just before login-screen, a messages flashes by - how can I slow it down to read it?
As this message flashes where usually the "Your drives are being checked for errors" comes up, after every 30 boots: where is the result/this well-known activity logged? (or is the result of on-boot fsck logged at all in case there is no error? Wondering...)

+1 for pointing out that desktop app - I've always reached for the console to dig around in logs so far. BUT: the question is less "where do I find logs", it's more "in which log should I look for this specific flash message, into which log does this boot-stage write?" Thus the fsck tag...

comment Where are the emblems coming from on the default folders?
Icons, emblems... Seems to have changed over versions. Anyway, what you describe works to "emblemize" folders from cli. Thanks!

comment Unity launcher bar stuck and won't hide
I ran into the "not hiding anymore" Unity/Gnome Ubuntu dock/launcher as well and found this answer here to be really helpful: just move one of the icons on the launcher a bit - that seems to reset autohide. At least for me, the Unity-dock resumed autohide afterwards. (I don't know why the dock autohide stopped in the first place, could be some hibernation cycles..)

The part about xdg-user-dirs answered the question.

comment Is there a way to tell Nautilus not to generate previews of PDF files?
Until these bugs are fixed: rm -r ~/.thumbnails && ln -s /dev/null .thumbnails

In case you want to disable previews in general: gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.thumbnailers disable-all true should work, but it doesn't! Nautilus handles it according to it's own settings and eog ignores gsettings as well.

comment Fixed columns' width in Nautilus
+1 if this could be solved for 12.04 as well! Someone inclined to open a bug/feature-request for the Nautilus devs?

Confirmed for 12.04: doesn't work, even crashed my Nautilus. So I removed the key again...

comment Best way to configure poweroff keyboard shortcut
So there's no way to replicate behaviour of Xfce, Windows, et al. Well, thanks anyway --acepted as best answer.

You, as everyone here, is right: I was confusing emblems with folder-specific icons here. But: let me rephrase my question: Why does, for example, Nautilus know that it has to apply a special icon for these directories? Is there some flag on the actual dir, a metadata field in GVFS or is this hard-coded into Nautilus?

comment Best way to configure poweroff keyboard shortcut
Well, that works, but it tells me "this shortcut is already in use and setting a new command would overwrite the current" (which is close-window for alt+f4) .. Is there a way to have it hierarchical, as in Xfce etc., so it only triggers the session-quit when no windows are opened? Else: Accepted answer!
