comment Is it a good idea to put “screen -r” in my .bashrc?
It is on some distros if you choose "User Defined Session". On Ubuntu, it sources .profile explicitly, others call .xsession from inside a login shell, which would typically mean .bash_profile, and most users source .bashrc from inside their .bash_profile.

comment Remapping special keys on a Logitech keyboard
It might actually help to remove all Logitech software. Of course, if you're using a Logitech mouse, you might lose any special functionality.

comment having trouble installing openoffice on Fedora 13
Let's go back to the start. Why do you want to install it this way? Why not just "yum search openoffice" then "yum install openoffice-exact-name-returned-by-search"?

Sorry, add a star after org, i.e. "rpm -ivh --aid openoffice.org*-{writer,calc,impress}*rpm".

Maybe try this: rpm -ivh --aid openoffice.org-{writer,calc,impress}*.

What about ls *freedesktop*? I am assuming you are still in the OpenOffice.org download directory where you ran the rpm -ivh command the first time.
