FYI ` is a "backtick", not tilde. ~ is a tilde.

comment rsync synchronizing files only without creating folders on destination
I'd be interested in seeing the solution if you find one. I'm out of ideas myself atm.

comment permanent fix for gtk-window-decorator --replace
It would help if you told people what window manager or desktop environment you are using and possibly what OS.

comment Count the occurences of a list of words in files
After reading John's answer I realized that both his and my original answers only count line frequencies so if a word appears multiple times in a line the count would be incorrect. My updated answer has the following changes: use sed to split input files one word per line and add -w option to grep so for example Range in words.txt will not match Ranger.

I just saw the shift in your original question as well. Updated answer to match.

You can just replace the rm -r with ls -l.

@AlBouazizi Sorry I had a typo on that line (missing a parenthesis). Should be fixed now.

comment How can I use Control+` (grave accent) as my escape character for screen?
@Fredrick Note that there are apparently multiple keys which generate ^@, e.g. Ctrl-2 for me. This shouldn't be a problem since if the terminal emulator can't distinguish them nothing running inside it would be expected to - just be aware you may have multiple command keys with that mapping.
