comment How does one change user's home directory in Ubuntu 9.04?
@Aleks the functionality of usermod hasn't changed in years, or probably decades, so this answer should still be valid. As for why you're only seeing your desktop background, perhaps something else in your desktop environment depends on the username, in which case usermod doesn't know about it. But I can only guess at why this is happening (without having access to the system).

comment Options to configure Apache to take into account other folders despite /var/www
What URLs do you want the files in those other directories to be accessible at? There are a few different methods to use, depending on the answer to that question. Or is your problem that Apache is not even able to access the files and you want to know how to set permissions to allow it to do so?

comment Time to zip very large (100G) files
Note that if a suitable compiler is available on the machine, and the filesystem permissions are not set to prohibit executing binaries from the directories you have access to, you can compile pigz and run it from wherever you happened to build it, without installing it. If there is no compiler, you could cross-compile it on another computer, although that's starting to get into more effort than might be worth it. (Depending on just how badly you need this compression to run faster, I guess.)
