Put the cursor on that line and press Shift-Tab? What have you already tried?

What version of vim are you using? I can't repeat the problem on 7.3.

comment Is it possible to share the same “hard drive” partition with a dual-boot?
@Hennes, thanks for the firsthand account. As I mentioned, no issues in recent times for me, but I was pretty gung-ho because I didn't know about any problems...

comment Is it possible to share the same “hard drive” partition with a dual-boot?
@Ramhound: I may have read the same post then :). Since I haven't experienced it, always interested in "positive examples" of the problem. Also, is it still possible to install Win7 on FAT32?

Sorry Nilzor, wish I could answer. I do share your pain.

@Ramhound: have you ever experienced this potential problem? I've heard about it, but I did "Run Linux -> mount Windows/NTFS file system -> copy/modify files" on a dual-boot system for over a year without any issues.

comment How to restore Vista from a corrupted install of Xubuntu?
Is there anything on your Vista partition not backed up? (This can help with suggestions, for example: factory reset isn't a possible solution if you have important files). Also, I've done this (Vista+Xubuntu on laptop), it works great. No matter what the outcome, if your lappy is overheating trying to install Xubuntu, it may have some underlying hardware issues to look at.

comment My SSD is full, but the files don't add up to the capacity
Also, the file size doesn't always match the size the file takes up on the disk, since small files still take up the block size. Not sure if you've taken that into account.

Have you turned off hibernate? That's 8GB you'd free up.

comment Heating issue on i5 3570k
Informaficker: all the Intel CPUs I've done come with thermal paste. Is the 3570K different (no paste included)?

comment Heating issue on i5 3570k
Hey Tikkes. Are you sure the heatsink is seated properly on the CPU? If it's a little loose is may not work properly. (Also, I assume you haven't overclocked yet since the aftermarket cooler doesn't fit.)

comment How to style window borders in Linux Mint w/ Cinnamon?
Sure. There's also the option of downloading entirely new themes, some of which drastically alter the appearance. I found one (FiftyWays?) that looked good as a test for answering this question, but I just couldn't get the thing to install no matter where I put it. Oh well.

comment How to style window borders in Linux Mint w/ Cinnamon?
Have you looked at the "Other Settings" tab in the Cinnamon Settings -> Themes dialog? It allows you to select some other options for how the borders/buttons look. That said, I don't find any of the other options better.

comment How are User files in Windows 7 protected?
I physically mount the drive. As a test, I just ran up a Linux Live CD and wrote a file to c:/Windows/System32 with no problem. The Everybody group definitely does not have write access to that directory (after booting back into Windows, confirmed with "effective permissions"). As I said, I only have access to Vista, but I would be surprised if this has changed.

What motherboard? And, just to check: did you try a different monitor cable?

comment How do I execute a Linux command whilst using the less command or within the man pages?
@Rob, @PeanutsMonkey: I've updated my answer to try and capture the difference between man and using less normally.
