comment Which programs can I use to edit PDF files?
In Ubuntu 12.04: sudo apt-get install libreoffice-pdfimport.Worked very well for me indeed, allowing me to fill-in a pseudo-form (word-created form for humans, not a real pdf form) exactly at the right places by selecting the line of placeholder dots in the pdf. Better than a typewriter.

comment Where is the information about free space in a disk stored?
Note that obviously, df can only show info for mounted devices, since the info has to come from the filesystem.

comment Am I using Unity or Unity 2D?
While I admire the patience the author showed in detailing all these little differences, and even inserting screenshots, I believe the "correct" answer to the question is much simpler: echo $DESKTOP_SESSION, as user komputes mentioned.

comment Default mount options on auto-mounted NTFS partitions (how to add `noexec` and `fmask=0111`?)
Too bad this question was closed. I'm also looking for a way to force specific mount options for specifc automounted filesystems.

comment How to mount HFS+ drive and ignore permissions
@weberc2: ls -l /media/YourHFSdisk/ will show you the uid and gid of the current files/folders. The HFS+ disks I come across seem to be mostly owned by uid 99 and gid 99. However, I tried various combinations uid/gid/umask settings in the mount command, and it didn't seem to change anything.

comment Can I configure Alt-Tab to always switch applications?
It would be nice to have a solution which doesn't require installing the whole ccsm. It must be possible to change this behaviour with a dconf command or by editing some config file, no?
