What would you like these shortcuts to do?

comment In 14.04 how do I run a bash script I wrote without opening a terminal?
@KasiyA That is exceptional! Most applications install a .desktop file that is not executable. None of mine is in /.local/share/applications (and I have a lot there :) )

comment In 14.04 how do I run a bash script I wrote without opening a terminal?
@KasiyA that is not necessary when you use it for Dash / Unity and store it in either ~/.local/share/applications` or /usr/share/applications. Most of the .desktop files are not in there.

comment Configuration of Redshift
the settings options seem rather limited with redshift. If you want a permanent setting, why not set it with xrandr?

comment How to block desktop applications for a specific user?
There are many ways. What level of security would you need? unattended use by "nameless" people / home users? What is the knowledge level of the blocked users?

comment Opened 3 terminal windows but cannot select it
I am not sure I understand, are the windows visible as well? (not only the arrows on the icon). Is the problem an incident (now) or is it happening consequently?

comment How to get “Files” Startup Application in the startup applications program?
How did you delete it? There is (should be) no "files" applications in Startup Applications. Do you mean you removed its desktop file?

comment Use specific part of an output
It can be me, but I have no clue what you are asking. How do you "run" (to start with) success=( "john --show ~/users_pswds")

Hi KasiyA, take care; it "corrects" my .jpeg into .jpeg.JPEG. why not skip all existing extensions?

Is there a reason why you think it is not a hardware problem?

@AvinashRaj Thanks for the suggestion, done.

comment Batch rename — multiple image types
@AvinashRaj I corrected a small mistake, but it should not have any effect on what you mention, everything below if name.count(".") == 0: only happens if there is no dot in the name (either invisible or with extension) so it seems impossible that anything happens when there is a file extension already. That is in line with what I tested.

comment Getting icon of window, and then changing icon
Thanks! my pleasure. As far as my knowledge goes, I don't see a possibility to add an overlay. However, dynamic icons exist, think of the progress icons of nautilus when it copies a file. I will keep it in mind, if some escape pops into my mind, I will post it!

comment Getting icon of window, and then changing icon
Notidart, I am really going to give you an answer, almost done, but I have a few very busy days and want to do it right, have to write an explanation and have to get back to you (will do it soon).
