comment Print over remote CUPS server, but just show a subset of the printers
@Dilaton: Well done! I'm pretty busy with my thesis at the moment, but I'll definitely have a look. PS: kinda funny misuse of the comment area, we should delete this comments if possible. And apologies to the superuser.com users :-) !

comment Very high delays when browsing samba share, how to speed up?
Currently Wifi, but the connection is good, and that's not the problem. I think I've found the solution, although I don't know how it works. Will post it shortly.

revised Format numbers in different locale (with period instead of comma as decimal separator)
Changed the non-working example to a more correct, but still non-working format code

comment Format numbers in different locale (with period instead of comma as decimal separator)
Exactly, I want the numbers to display with a period on my German machine, since I want to write an English document. (The readers of the document don't know or care what machine I'm using, they will just complain that the decimal separators are wrong.) The numbers display correctly on English (American) systems.

comment Why are there no matte touchscreens?
@random and others: Why was this closed?! Surely this can be answered with facts. I'm explicitly asking for a technical reason or a quotation. It's not like I'm asking what kind of screen is better...

comment Why are there no matte touchscreens?
Close voter, would you care to explain your vote? I checked before asking that hardware questions are on topic on this site, and I believe this is the most appropriate SE site for the question. I'm not looking for a discussion, but an objective answer from an authoritative source (like "the molybdenum in the matte screen reverses the polarity of the touchscreen" or "Apple has a patent and lets nobody build them").

comment Why are there no matte touchscreens?
@DanielRHicks Yes, you can. If you look at the kind of screens used in factories for example, they are usually matte, and when they get dusty or grimey they can be washed off just like any other plastic surface. They are not especially rough or dirt-attracting, and in fact you don't see oil films or fingerprints on them as easily, so you don't even have to keep them as clean as glossy displays. Nearly all rugged hardware that works in dirty environments has that kind of screen for that reason. (I might be wrong of course, but I'd really like to see a source/test to back that up.)
