Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

+1, accepted! Thank you. I did edit you post to make it windows specific instead of *nix specific since my question was about windows.

comment Dotty shows all labels as dots (period) instead of text
Have a look at $HOME/.xsession-errors and/or /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see if there are errors there. Start dotty in a console (so you can see any messages send to stderr). Look at what fonts you have installed and force a font in the dot file to see if it makes any difference.

comment In Linux, how do I truncate command-line output?
@Nikki then cut is what you want. I am sure that you can do something clever with awk to get the same thing but really, cut is easier. ^_-

comment Linux – cannot remove owned file with 777 permissions
In general, consider using rm -rf DIRECTORY_NAME and not "*". It will save you from that one time when you will think yourself in directory /some/where/safe but are instead in /home

You need to either install a package or compile the library from source and install that in a path that is in LD_LIBRARY_PATH. If you do not have root access, please ask your system administrator to do that for you.

comment Linux wallpaper change
@amphetamachine: If I only had one images, that would be indeed a good solution. However, I have many images that get changed once every X minutes so I need a command line that can do it. Thus converting an image with "convert" and displaying it will not do either.
