comment Which system calls are called when file is updated from gedit?
@user3797948 that makes no difference. A program is a program, just open a terminal and run strace gedit file.txt 2>strace.out. The file strace.out will contain the strace output.

@user136104 for more (far, far, more) on the differences between type and which, see Why not use "which"? What to use then?. The short summary is: always use type.

No. There's no need for one unless you're really paranoid.

comment Why putting a script in /etc/cron.hourly is not working?
@BlackBlock please edit your question and add the exact files you have created. Both the script and the crontab (show that by running crontab -l).

comment Why putting a script in /etc/cron.hourly is not working?
@BlackBlock no! You are editing /etc/crontab, don't do that. You want this to be run as your user, not as root and that file has a different format anyway. Just do what I said in my answer, run crontab -e and add the lines there.

comment Why putting a script in /etc/cron.hourly is not working?
@BlackBlock there are multiple problems. i) notify-send needs the XAUTHORITY and DISPLAY variables to be set and ii) mplayer needs the XDG_RUNTIME_DIR to be set. Did you try my suggestion? That should fix both issues. You probably also had naming problems because of run-parts as explained in the other answer.

comment Does Ubuntu 14.04 have something like Window's DXDiag?
@muru well, it's 2^8 :) But yes, I don't really know what those numbers are. I think the best bet is to find out the card's model and then search the interwebs.

@muru I don't know, to tell you the truth. lspci -vv shows me 256M which is the same as shown in hardinfo and the Nvidia page.
