comment Any way to view stdout of a program after it has been started in gnome-shell?
I think gnome-session doesn't necessarily run anymore (I'm on gnome 3.14, because pgrep doesn't find it, though I'm definitely in gnome ;)

comment Firefox: how to make browse buttons in forms accept urls?
No, in general firefox has a policy of minimal core features with extensions. On top of that there's so many things I would have to suggest to them... When I right-click on an image and click save image, it re-downloads it rather than copy it from the cache... now that's smart. There are quite a few basic things I think don't work like they should, but I don't really have the time to get into ff development to look into all of them. On linux about every program you use regularly barfs on you and needs work done, so it becomes endless... If even only I could get decent firmware so...

So you're saying ff on windows has this feature already thanks to Windows allowing http(s) paths in a standard file open dialog. Ok, that's cool. I just verified to be sure, on debian linux with gnome it definitely doesn't work.

Thanks for the tip. Do you mean Internet Explorer? I don't think that using IE is going to be an option for me but it's good to know...

comment Why is setuid ignored on directories?
"Hard to see the utility of that" -> set on a home directory, so provision scripts running as root can't forget to chown something by accident?

comment How do I get apt pinning to install the minimum required from the unstable distribution
It's not always this obvious. I wanted git from testing while keeping the system on stable. It just needed libc6 and git-man from testing. Aptitude proposed first to remove etckeeper (which btw is from testing, so I'm confident that it's happy with that git version). When rejecting that, I noticed aptitude has other strategies. By entering '.' you can go to the next solution. Well I cycled through about 20 ludicrous propositions mostly proposing me to install bzr or mercurial with a bunch of python and js packages before it came to just propose to update the dependencies.
