comment Which Debian package architecture am I using?
dpkg-architecture is in the dpkg-dev package which isn't installed by default (although it is a dependency of build-essential). However, dpkg is by definition guaranteed to be there.

comment Can you specify git-shell in .ssh/authorized_keys to restrict access to only git commands via ssh?
@Tim This is essentially the same solution, but squeezes the content of my ~/gitserve script into authorized keys by using perl. Personally, I prefer keeping it in a separate script.

The original ellipsis (…) was intentional, showing that some path information may need to be inserted. Using .. for parent directory is almost certain to be incorrect.

comment Can you specify git-shell in .ssh/authorized_keys to restrict access to only git commands via ssh?
This doesn't work for me, because my git client (1.7.5.4) sends the repo name in single quotes, presumably because it's expecting to have the entire command line interpreted by a shell. The exec $SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND then passes the single quotes on to git-receive-pack etc. which therefore doesn't find the repository.

comment Is it possible to log a user in a remote computer using ssh?
Actually, the second virtual terminal would be displayed on the screen, so someone sitting at the computer would see your install and would have their work interrupted. The only benefit would be a more controlled environment, ie not having all of GNOME or KDE running, just whatever you choose to run, which would be the program running under WINE and maybe a lightweight window manager like metacity.

comment FileZilla menu not showing up in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx (10.04)
I do run filezilla, and I don't see a ~/.gnome2/ file that might relate to filezilla. However, maybe @keisimone does have one and it's causing the problem.

You should really ask this question in the filezilla support forum forum.filezilla-project.org, since this seems to be a bug in filezilla rather than a question about how to do something, which is what superuser.com is really for.
