comment How to convert all pdf files to text (within a folder) with one command?
You can avoid the find command searching in subdirectories by using -maxdepth 1. Also, when putting it into Thunar's custom actions feature, you should probably replace find . with find %F to allow Thunar to properly pass the paths of the selected directories.

Wouldn't this produce files like "filename.pdf.txt"?

Is it possible to purge and reinstall a package if other installed packages depend on it?

Purging the package may not be an option if others depend on it.

comment How can I set default terminal used in Unity?
This doesn't fix it for me. When I start Htop via its .desktop file (which specifies Terminal=True), it starts in Gnome Terminal no matter what. Is there yet another place to change the default terminal emulator?

This is talking about terminal emulators, not shells.
