comment Way to avoid ssh connection timeout & freezing of terminal tab
This is not what the OP asked. He's not getting kicked off due to inactivity. He's attempting to connect and his terminal is freezing.

@NReilingh, Yes, by default it's the mute key. Thus my comment.

comment How to Right Click Using the Keyboard from Ubuntu on a Mac
I don't understand, what is this supposed to do? It doesn't seem to have any effect on 12.04. I'd like the right command key to trigger the context menu. Why are you telling me to test by clicking the ctrl+mouse?

comment IE tab for ubuntu
The problem with using an actual IE rendering engine is you lose all the awesome dev tools in Firefox/Chrome. I don't really need to know what a page looks like in IE. I already know it'll look horrible. What I need to know is why it looks horrible so I can fix it. Unfortunately, IE's dev tools have always and will always suck.

This doesn't work in 12.04.2. "usermod: group 'admin' does not exist"

comment How to reinstall a package using apt-get?
@DavidSpillett, I strongly disagree. The man pages are usually very poorly written and are very unfriendly to newbies. For example, the paragraph on the "--reinstall" option doesn't mention that you have to use it with the "install" argument. A newbie might rightfully ask "why do I have to tell it to install AND reinstall?" An answer telling someone to RTFM is the worst kind of answer and it pains me to see it with the most votes, especially when a complete and actually helpful answer is near the bottom.

comment How do get Ubuntu to stop modifying /etc/resolv.conf
Removing resolvconf forces removal of ubuntu-minimal, which provides a lot of other barebones utilities, which are recommended to not be removed.

Running this results in nothing. No success or error messages, but screen -list shows no sessions are open.

Could you please specify what "stuff" represents? Is that a name...or command...or other parameters?

comment How to speed up sluggish Eclipse editors
@Lèsemajesté, It's really always happened to some extent. Seems to grow worse the longer I have Eclipse open.

comment Booting Clonezilla from a LiveUSB on a Macbook running Ubuntu
@Eric B., Upon further reading, LiveUSB for Macs is not well supported, since recent Macs use a different booting mechanism. I found a couple blog posts explaining how to do it, but it was incredibly involved and a bit hackish.

comment How to increase mouse cursor speed in Ubuntu? (Gnome)
Why is it when anyone asks how to change mouse speed the reply always explains how to set acceleration?
