comment Modifying PDF files
I misunderstood the question. Edit the question to make it clear what you meant by "chapters". I assumed you just wanted to insert one part of a PDF inside another. But perhaps you mean the pdf bookmarks (i.e., which appear in the side pane for some viewers)? PDFJam might not, but the pdfpages package for PDFLaTeX, along with the LaTeX hyperref package, can handle those. pdfedit should be able to change page numbers. With pdfLaTeX/pdfpages you could clip the bottom of the page and add new ones. BRISS can crop off headers/footers too, but you'd have to add them back with something else.

comment Has the GNU coreutils stat tool changed?
Thanks. One would have thought that for backwards compatibility they would have introduced an alternative notation and not replaced %[WXYZ].

comment How do I quit from Vi?
This question brings back such "fun" memories. I'm so glad I got over that feeling, however.

The "recording" by the way meant that you were recording a macro. Not that that matters any more.

comment how do I add newlines between lines printed on the command line?
The -e isn't necessary. piping whatever | sed G ought to do the trick.

Whether or not the Compose Key is that key or something else depends on your settings, and is very distro-, locale- and config-specific.

comment Fedora vs. Ubuntu installation
Ubuntu doesn't only have a wubi installer; there are other ways of installing it too. In fact, using the wubi installer ends up installing Ubuntu to an existing Windows partition. That way you are stuck with the inferior filesystems like FAT-32, rather than making full use of something like EXT4. This may be "easier", but it's technically inferior. Even if I were using Ubuntu I wouldn't use the Wubi installer.
