comment Unable to defragment win7 laptop
A good answer but unfortunately it doesn't help in my case as the chkdsk never happens at boot despite having scheduled it several times. The local IT admin thinks it has something to do with the 3rd party full disk encryption software in use

comment Unable to login via xrdp
Eventually I created sym link in /etc/rc3.d which takes care of everything: S36xrdp -> ../init.d/xrdp

comment Start an application from the dock within a specific directory
Thanks you are correct this does work for Emacs, but I am still interested in a solution that would work with other apps as well.

comment How to save shell history from emacs and use it in terminal?
As suggested by the bash FAQ, setting PROMPT_COMMAND="history -a" in my .bashrc file worked nicely for me, thanks.

comment How can I have my terminal emulator exit when Emacs does?
I went back and followed the suggestion you made in the previous question about reading the bash FAQ, and it looks like adding PROMPT_COMMAND="history -a" to my .bashrc is a solution that works, thanks!

comment How can I have my terminal emulator exit when Emacs does?
Actually it is the inferior shell I am trying to make exit, and (shell) only launches a new inferior shell if there is no existing buffer named "*shell*". I pretty much always have a buffer named "*shell*" so I believe that if I could get bash to process the "exit" command I am inserting, it would work.
