comment SSH RSA key and passphrase with umlaute rejected. Why can't I use umlaute?
Maybe PuTTYgen uses native Windows encoding (UCS-2/UTF-16?) but inside the PuTTY terminal is using the remote encoding (probably defaults to UTF-8)? Try changing Settings->Window->Translation remote character set, or consider using PuTTY's SSH agent Pageant.

comment How do I get the current date according to an NTP server without setting it locally?
Not sure if this actually works. I set my system time to be several hours off, but ntpdate printed offset -0.000033 sec. Perhaps something using ntpdate -d and looking at reference time is more useful?

comment Ubuntu/ Gnome : Open an application in a specific workspace
The OP said the browser goes on workspace four. If it needed to be possible to open browsers on other workspaces after the session startup script runs, the last command in that script could be sleep; pkill devilspie.
