comment Make acpi beep when the power supply being unplugged even if the alsa is turned into mute
I updated with an alternative file to monitor in /proc/acpi ... it would help if you gave a listing of /proc/acpi and more detailed info of your applicable hardware in general (hardinfo will work ).

comment How do I preserve ownership permissions when copying to an external volume?
I don't think this has to do with it being an external volume. More likely it is the file system of the volume (probably fat32 or some other file system that does not support all attributes). tar, cpio and other archiving utilities will preserve attributes if you don't need direct access as do some version control systems

comment Is it possible to change the mount point used for external USB devices from /media to something else under GNOME?
Iirc, it is hard-coded into gvfs. Puppy had patches for Thunar, but not sure about Nautilus.

comment How to download a file from Linux server in shell using Unix command
Your question is unclear. "download...to" is either redundant or backwards. If you just want to download a file use wget. What is the source and destination?
