udev is the service that manages your devices. The command signals to this service that there's been a change to your input subsystem and that it should re-detect things and reconfigure. Rebooting your system should have the same effect.

comment Sabrent USB-2011 (Displink Adapter DL-195) / XORG.CONF?
Maybe take a look at bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1298485#p1298485 - it includes some directions for setting the provider output source, which I've heard fixes it for at least one person I know.

comment How do I install a Canon PIXMA MX700 as a standalone wired network printer?
-1: The nmap suggestion is insightful, but the MX700 includes a network config display that shows what it's IP address is directly, so nmap is unnecessary for this. Also, the suggested URI is incorrect for this hardware.

comment Ubuntu freezes when I copy/move file into home folder
Could be quite a variety of things. Sometimes errors appear in your log files. Have you scanned through your logs for relevant error messages?

comment Messed up my hybrid graphics configuration
Manually installing fglrx ruins your OS. tsk tsk. May as well wipe and reinstall. You can try deleting xorg.conf, purging all fglrx, and undoing all edits.

Yes, wipe the partition and reinstall from scratch. Otherwise, you need to give us more info!
