comment Which tools can wrapper up a linux binary with all its dependencies to be used on a different system?
alien is interesting. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I was actually looking for Statifier and Ermine per FSMaxbB.

I'm aware of ldd as well as what dlopen does, but this is a class of tool that cuts the gordian knot of dependency hell by simply including all the included shared objectsin a container and then chroot'ing so that the binary finds all the libraries underneath that directory. There are two implementations of this tool but the name escapes my memory. It is like creating a psuedo-static binary after the binary has already been created. It can make a binary portable between distros where LD_LIBRARY_PATH is different.

revised How to keep any Window “Always on Top”?
Adding screenshot from the designer's site, fixing first sentence, and clarifying the phrase "With some extra **functionality**:" which almost seemed to indicate [to me] that you needed to modify the software or configuration to get it to do what you want, instead of the s/w working out of the box.

comment How to Keep Video and Audio in Sync When Ripping a DVD?
You can use VLC to manually adjust the audio/video sync on playback. See here. It's not ideal, but in a pinch it will work.

comment Download and install newer KDE without root access?
Indeed. I recently tried installing gnome from jhbuild in order to get all the prerequisites for a recent monodevelop and that was quite the rabbit hole. jhbuild is meant for installing and testing new releases of gnome in parallel to your normal desktop, yet it was endless dependency fetching. Meanwhile, I can install monodevelop in a few clicks on Windows. 'tis a shame.

comment Download and install newer KDE without root access?
I know that it is hard to do. I work inside of the Linux environment for a large corporation and getting new versions is like pulling teeth. I can and do install Ubuntu on my own virtual machines and home machines all the time, but I can't do my job on these machines.
