comment How can I fix Wifi with my Broadcom BCM43142 card?
It seems that your card is only supported by wl, but see wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43#Supported_devices for details.

comment UDEV Rule Not Triggering
Can you share the lock_screen script? How are you trying to run it? The script may need some variables that are not defined when it is run from udev, how are you handling this?

comment Cannot connect to X server :0.0 as superuser
IIRC, xhost should be run from inside the X server as the user who is running the X session. Is that root as well?

comment Using a generated list of filenames as argument list — with spaces
I guess you'd need to change what does the shell use as filename separators (for example, by playing with the value of IFS, one possible way is IFS=", newline, "). But is there a need to execute the script over all the filenames? If not, consider using find itself to execute the script for each file.

comment Prevent wildcard expansion on find
Ah, right, I missed that, sorry. As @alexis said, this largely depends on whether find supports it. And, from what @alexis said, it does not seem to. I'd indeed suggest alexis' sed idea.

comment How can I recall a numbered history command for edit?
Any arrow key or equivalent command (Ctrl-a for example) will stop the search leaving the current history entry in the command prompt, without executing it. This may or may not be enough, depending on what @Michael wants.
