comment How to use Fixedsys in the Gnome Terminal, or wherever monospaced fonts are required
PhpStorm 7.1 on 14.04 does not recognize the font I describe in my answer as being a monospaced font, I don't know why :-( Luckily, if you uncheck "show only monospaced fonts", you can still get it. For some reason the size must be either 15 or 16 (they look the same) instead of 12. PhpStorm seems to be a bit buggy to me...

comment nvidia-libopencl1-331 has to be removed before installing WINE
I followed this recipe out of despair, and it worked. I will upvote it only when I will have a clear understanding of all its "side effects", though.

For printing pdf files with Document Viewer, the option in the Print dialog box is (as you said) in the Page Setup tab, and is called Only print, with values All sheets, Even sheets and Odd sheets

For the benefit of people looking for this solution, I'll add that you can get into this problem by installing Wine (wine is not mentioned on this page yet).

Solution 1 solved my problem on 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr). Shift-Tab to select "OK", then Enter and Enter again.

In case someone looks for a solution to this problem for 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr), here is the text of the first and last messages for this release: "Data files for some packages could not be downloaded" and "This is a permanent failure that leaves these packages unusable on your system. You may need to fix your Internet connection, then remove and reinstall the packages to fix this problem."

Update to my previous comment: Netbeans 7.4 on Windows requires -J-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on to get rid of the anti-aliasing.

@BrendanLong: I guess the reason is that aes-128-cbc in not mentioned in man openssl - I wonder why. It works, though.
