comment How to remap CapsLock to Ctrl in Xubuntu 12.04?
So, I added option, ran dpkg-reconfigure. At first, everything is great, but I lost the ability to change keyboard layout (it was deleted from layouts list). I go to keyboard applet (xfce4-xkb-plugin), set up new layout, set the key combination to change the layout (left ctrl + left shift). Now, language change works - but caps lock is back to original function.

Doesn't seem so. Let me try again, I'll post the detailed symptoms of what happens when I try setting XKBOPTIONS.

Unfortunately, it's Xfce, not Gnome. They don't have such option in Xfce :(

But new banana will be dependent on 0.0.2 version of banana-common, so it can't be upgraded, either.

Man pages say something like "The package maintenance software will not allow conflicting packages to be installed at the same time". Wouldn't it just fail the installation?

And that would force dpkg to install them in parallel?

I did that in my ~/, and it seems to work. And I even got to get rid of that Desktop folder! Thanks!

comment How to tunnel traffic from one machine to another?
Method with ssh works, but only for duration of the session, and requires password of user of local machine. I wanted something what could be started up automatically on the server. But still, thanks!

comment How to set up vnc server?
Actually, this thread nearly solved my problem: ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=122402 But it does not work on 10.10 - gdm login greeter hangs :( It seems to be fixed in 11.04, though.

comment How to set up vnc server?
The problem is, that I saw exactly what I described - user just typed "vncviewer host" and got a full login screen. The problem is that admin in that place was not very helpful - he failed to describe how it works, seems he just forgot.
