comment How can I install Sun/Oracle's proprietary Java JDK 6/7/8 or JRE?
This worked successfully for me installing the 32-bit JDK on Ubuntu 12.04LTS, except that I was getting bash: /usr/bin/java: No such file or directory when I tried to run java -version. apt-get install libc6-i386 fixed the problem.

comment Send OSD notification messages to all systems on a network
What I did was make a shell script on each system that did export DISPLAY=:0 (necessary to interact with X from ssh), then called notify-send (with some other params). On one of the systems, I even have that script wake up the screen first (its an LCD monitor, using dpms).
