I've recently lost my window options, had to somehow manipulate my way to Xchat and ask some people how do I get it back (it was
metacity --replace, and after I decided to stop the command and run it in background the X was completely useless so I had to do killall -u user).
And that was after the internet connection stopped working for some reason (might've been the ISP).
The thing is, after using linux a long time, I still get the feeling
that on dire situations, I don't know the good tricks (stuff like
I feel like a really need like a "rescue" cheatsheet for things like:
- how to save the X no matter what without pressing reset
- how to reset the system to "normal state"
- how to connect to the internet through the command line
- how to monitor what the X is doing (using ubuntu linux 10.04 btw)
