comment Copying & Pasting with URxvt
How did you try the suggestions from ArchWIki? If you are using a graphical login screen to start X, you will need to reload the X resources using xrdb (it should be xrdb ~.Xresources or something similar). Either way, you also need to restart urxvt. In some distributions, you may need to install a separate package with the perl extensions, but this seems to be included in the base rxvt-unicode package in debian (I may be mistaken, though).

comment Copying & Pasting with URxvt
The problem here is that the two programs are using different X-Windows selections, traditional programs use the PRIMARY selection with Shift+Insert, and new programs which try to mimic keybindings from other systems paste the CLIPBOARD selection for the same keybinding. In GTK+ it has become harder to paste PRIMARY without using the mouse (middle click, like @terdon said, or left+right click, if the third button emulation is on). But, while this explains why the programs are not passing the data between them, I wonder why the arch wiki suggestion didn't work.

Where does it say that dump is deprecated? Also, I guess this should be linked here... unix.stackexchange.com/questions/211330/linux-dump8-command

comment Linux “dump(8)” command
Probably because dump and restore were mentioned in a related question The manpage says that they work with ext2 and ext3, so I guess it's okay for these filesystems, of course depending on what the actual goal is.

comment Download an article with cURL given a dynamic download link
I just tried this here... can you try with curl -L --referer ";auto" -o test.pdf URL-for-direct-download? It seems that the URL involves a redirect, and it also needs the referer header to be set correctly.

comment Download an article with cURL given a dynamic download link
It seems that this is a Science Direct download link, that is not working for some people. What is the page where you got the PDF URL from? Are you accessing from some organization or through some proxy service that gives you additional privileges at Science Direct?

comment How do I extract the first integer from text string in a column of a tab-delimited file?
Is there some "specification" of this data format? Which program uses this format? If it is just the first integer, and it is always present, then this is probably easy to do (say, sed -e 's/\([^[:digit:]]*\([[:digit:]]*\).*\)/\2;\1/', although I've probably missed some simpler way to write it)

comment Dark blue color in vim or ls output in linux
This looks like a problem with some displays or video card outputs. This default blue (that seems to be at least more or less the same in the linux console and in some terminal emulators) is readable on some displays, and unreadable on others.

comment Debian - ifconfig not showing wlan0
Wireless cards should still be listed in ifconfig, as they are network interfaces.
