comment Is there a way to remap the AltGr key to Ctrl with setxkbmap?
Thank you. You mentioned that some xmodmap in .xsessionrc get ignored. Have you considered that your desktop environment might set some keyboard options that override yours? I know you didn't ask, but the thought just crossed my mind.

comment How do I easily update list of md5sums?
Thank you for pointing out comm. Now I can do what I wanted: comm -13 <( cat MD5SUM | sed 's/^[a-z0-9]* //' | sort) <( find -type f -not -name MD5SUM | sort) | xargs -d "\n" md5sum >>MD5SUM At least as long as the filenames do not contain a newline character. :)

comment Running programs over ssh
An alternative to 'screen' is 'nohup'. It has only very basic functionality compared to screen but it is more general available.

comment Move /usr to SSD
If you consider keeping the contents of the old /usr, then you can skip step 4 and 5. Mounting the SSD partition on top of /usr will hide the old contents. Only keep in mind that it will get outdated as the system is updated.
