Latest update (Linux Kernel, I think) breaks GNOME shell in Laptop and Virtual Machineview story

http://askubuntu.com – I found that one of the recent update causes graphics driver to break or otherwise, causing fallback to GNOME Classic, and low resolution. This happens in my Laptop (Intel Core i5, NVIDIA 520) and Virtual Box. I notice in both cases, when I boot into a older kernel eg xxx.12 or something like that, it works (GNOME Shell & Monitor resolution) (HowTos)

Disable scroll lockview story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – We have a shell/tty based application that has ~1,000 users. If a user accidently turns on the Scroll Lock, it makes it seem as if the application is frozen because it quits responding to keyboard input. Is there a way to disable the Scroll Lock or remap it to something less intrusive for this use-case? (HowTos)

Execute multiple ssh commands in the same shell (programatically)view story

http://serverfault.com – NOTE: I'm really looking for an SSH-y solution here, more than bash-y one. I need to execute a series of commands over ssh, programatically.

http://askubuntu.com – I'm writing a daemon in Python which monitors my optical drive for disc insertion events with udev/udisks, and rips the disc using HandBrakeCLI or MakeMKV (depending on whether it's a DVD or blu-ray). The daemon runs as a special user called "jack" and usergroup "media". "jack" also belongs to the usergroup "cdrom". (HowTos)

Is there any gnome-shell mixer icon relying on alsa and not pulseaudio?view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – So, long story short, when I installed Mint 12 on my Dell laptop I realized my HDA-intel sound board have problems with pulseaudio. I uninstalled pulseaudio and got my sound back, but removing pulseaudio also removes that nice little mixer icon on the top panel of gnome-shell, and messes up with the sound configuration app. Is there any other solution to just removing pulseaudio?

Environment variable not being picked up by app when started with Upstart (Ubuntu)view story

http://serverfault.com – How does one go about getting a new environment variable picked up system-wide without restarting the server? As its an Ubuntu 11.x server, I'm using Upstart to start/restart processes. I added a new environment variable to /etc/environment that needs to be picked up by one of my app's processes.
