comment Route traffic through VPN to some IPs occasionally
I also developed a piece of software to automate the DNAT rule creation: github.com/kris7t/ipremap

comment Route traffic through VPN to some IPs occasionally
Thanks! MARK in OUTPUT indeed cannot affect the routing. I added a to 10.1.0.0/16 lookup vpn rule to route the packages (and set the correct source address). The fwmark routing is still needed to avoid re-routing after the NAT, however. Now the packages show up in Wireshark correclty (interface, src, dst is right), but ping still shows 100% packet loss even though the ping replies arrive.

Unfortunately, there is no proxy (be it HTTP or SOCKS) on the VPN I could use. My university's library said to access full text papers (say, on link.springer.com) we should direct all our traffic to the VPN. This give us an IP address on the tunnel interface from the uni's public IP range that the publishers' sites can detect. However, I only want specific HTTP connections to go through that interface.

comment intel/ati dualhead black monitor - brightness set to 0 (acpi issue?)
Anyways, you could try messing around with stuff under other stuff under /sys/class/backlight. For example, (on an Asus N53SV laptop) I have acpi_video{0,1} and intel_backlight. Whichever I tweak last overrules the rest, although I didn't have time to study the driver code and therefore I have no idea what is the technical reason for that.

I'm glad my comment has helped to at least create a work-around! It turned out that in my case the external monitor had some hardware failure that only triggered when I set it as the primary display (maybe something to do with initialization order? just a wild guess and probably not true), but a couple days ago it died completely.

I have a very similar issue with an Intel/nVidia laptop: the external monitor (which I set as primary) has zero brighness. If you try setting the external monitor as primary, does it get blank, or does the issue still happen to the LVDS?
