comment Running opera as a different user in linux
Works for me using kdesu (part of the KDE framework) and I seem to recall gksu exists for Gnome - maybe you can try those (or another alternative to sux)?

comment Linux cat example
Just to add to the bottom two answers: if you wanted to make a loop (endlessly filling file) you could type cat <file.txt >>file.txt as two >> mean appending to instead of deleting the file.

comment Use Function Key + Page Up/ Page Down as Volume Control
To provide an example why Doug Harris's question is relevant: I tried using the FN key on my laptop but the OS never got any events when pressing the key (key down events), only when releasing it (key up events) which made the thing rather useless for almost anything, especially modifier-like. I guess it was almost completely handled by hardware.

comment How can I play Dr. Brain?
Well, I played Dr. Brain under DOS, that's why I assumed it should work. I just checked again and there are 4 Dr. Brain games - I only knew about the first two. So it is possible that you either have one of the newer two versions or that you have a remake that was published later and only runs under Windows. In either case, I apologize for not checking thoroughly enough before answering your question :( Which of the 4 games (The Castle of dr. Brain, The Island of dr. Brain, The Time Warp of dr. Brain, dr. Brain: Action Reaction) do you have? It might help with further answers..
