comment Convert pdf to monochrome via inkscape command line
@JacobVlijm Thank you for the link. As also the answers say, the command doesn't work with the Mono option for Ghostscript, only with Grey. My text is grey already, I need to make it black. Those answers unfortunately don't solve my problem.

comment Convert pdf to monochrome via inkscape command line
@JacobVlijm It's text, not an image. (It contains a couple of figures, which I don't need to convert to B/W. I care primarily about the readability of the text.)

@ByteCommander Other PDF conversion tools would be okay as well.

comment How to install large software on a different partition
As I said in the question, I'm looking to install sagemath provided by sagemath-upstream-binary. I was thinking of installing via a third-party repository, but I guess there are binaries available as well. What does the --root switch of dpkg do?

comment How to install large software on a different partition
Where are you saying I should mount my partition? The answer you link to only tells me how to change folder permissions. I'm wondering if there is a way to install all, or at least a large portion, files of a single software package on a different drive.

comment “Not authenticated” ghost packages
Hm... Actually, I decided to see if I could install anything and updated a different package. Afterwards I installed gwaei and wasn't issued a warning. I hope this didn't allow access to the malicious individual...

@Rmano Thanks, with nethogs I identified that the culprit is a python script. I updated the question.

comment How do I get rid of this Anthy toolbar?
I had the same problem when updating to ubuntu 14.04 (with unity). For me it disappeared after unchecking these options and restarting Anthy. Setup - Ibus-Anthy is the name of the window, which is the preferences window for Anthy. If you managed to uncheck the boxes, I guess you found it. Can you check, whether the menu is still there after a reboot?

comment Keeping local folders synchronized
Looks promising, many thanks. rsync going once, going twice, ... Let's see if there are more suggestions.

comment Input methods after upgrade to 13.10
I feel like this could be the answer to my question, but "Text Entry" only lists "Input sources", no matter what keyboard input method system (default, Ibus, none) I choose from "Language support". I can choose Anthy in "Text Entry" but it gives me Anthy not with my keyboard layout, but with something like US keyboard (although my hardware is German).

comment Workspace switch hot-keys not working in 13.04 (but expo does)
I tried to reset the hotkeys, just to be sure. Compiz had <Ctrl><Alt>Left. Trying to reset, compiz interpreted my Ctrl key as being <Primary>. In any case, changing all <Ctrl> instances to <Primary> didn't work either, but it might be a hint as to what went wrong. Did you file a bug report?

comment Can't install Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 in my Lenovo X121e
I bought a 6200 card instead, which works. Thanks for your help. So, X121e users: beware of the 6205 card, it doesn't work (for me).

Same thing. The computer hangs with black screen before getting to the BIOS.

comment Can't install Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 in my Lenovo X121e
I see. I might just need to try to use a N6200 card rather than the N6205 card... I didn't mess with any drivers, I can't even get any drivers (or BIOS or anything) to load with a different card plugged in.

Thanks. Let's see what happens when I drill out the old card.
