comment Change file allocation unit size without format
@DavidMurdoch: I based my answer on an eHow article, but GParted doesn't even let you choose the cluster size when creating a partition.

comment How to stop 7-Zip from automatically downloading and opening a zip file in Chrome?
@gv0000: Not necessarily. If you don't have any auto-opening settings, the button isn't there. What file type do you have trouble with?

comment How to stop 7-Zip from automatically downloading and opening a zip file in Chrome?
@gv0000: I'm using the latest stable version of Chrome on Linux and the option is still there. You have to click Show advanced settings... to discover it. In any case, the other two methods I've mentioned in my answer should work just as well.

comment How do I change a USB flash name from uppercase to uppercase and lowercase (mixed case)?
I wouldn't call exFAT more portable nor NTFS Windows-only. Both formats will work with Linux and MacOS PCs, although you may need additional drivers. Samsung TVs are more likely to support NTFS than exFAT.

comment Remapping SHIFT + SPACE to an underscore (_)
@CSharper: The space bar is not a modifier key, so while what you're going for should be possible, it won't be a one-liner. I don't have Windows anymore, so I won't be able to help. Sorry.

comment How to run a regex search on Google Chrome or Firefox?
@mernst: I've replaced my second suggestion (which is horribly broken in the latest Chrome) with yours. If you could jump to the next match without using the mouse, it would be perfect.

User "nobody" isn't spevial to the OS, but you can add an entry in the sudoers file that allows passwordless sudo for "nobody".

comment Should I install Internet Explorer updates although I disabled it?
Be aware that disabling IE may affect other software. I've learned that the hard way after wasting a couple of hours trying to install Corel Draw. The installer uses IE to display the EULA.

comment How to find out when a disc (DVD) has been written/burned?
@FranckDernoncourt: Audio DVDs use UDF as well, but audio CDs require a different approach. It's midnight where I live; I'll take a look at it tomorrow.

comment How to make ssh log in as the right user?
@CristianCiupitu: That's another BSD version. It only results in minor differences here (noneof them relevant to the question), but using BSD man pages for Linux distros (and vice versa) is generally a bad idea. For example, the syntaxes of the BSD and Linux flavors stat are completely different.

comment How to make ssh log in as the right user?
@CristianCiupitu: Considering the is a Linux question, I'd hardly call the OpenBSD's man page the official one. There are options in Linux's ssh (e.g., GSSAPIKeyExchange) that aren't available in the BSD version.
