comment No Audio Output with X11
funny thing is I started having the same problem a few days ago on my arch install. Maybe this is some regression or new bug?

comment detect if key is pressed from script
ok this works for the alt key and control key, the only problem is that I have my capslock be another control key so the keyup on the control leaves the capslock down. I have searched for a way to keyup capslock but this seems not to be possible with xte. any suggestions?

comment In KDE, how can I create a custom keyboard shortcut that prints the current date?
I was searching for the same thing so thanks. It seems that the sleep in my case is needed because of the shortcut itself, i.e. I use a shortcut that contains Control which implies that when the date is "typed in" by the script, Control is pressed down and so the actuall keystrokes that are sent to X are Control+<first letter of the date>, etc...

comment How can I control an existing remote shell?
can you run ssh? if so, and you still really want to use the existing shell, start screen using vnc in that shell, then from ssh you can screen -x as suggested by adam zalcman.

comment Multivariable For Loops
You say there is no subprocess involed. Isn't the () a subshell? I don't want to be pendantic but I'm unsure what is happening now. For instance I know that when I have a script and I don't want it to polute the current shell with cd's for instance, I do it inside a (). Also running (sleep 4)& for example followed by a ps shows me the process is still running. Can you please elaborate.

comment ArchBang dual boot with Windows: HowTo
you can do that easely by going to /boot/grub/menu.lst and uncommenting the windows line. Make sure you have chainloader +1 set for windows 7 and also make sure that the correct partition is given. You can view your partitions with cfdisk for example which can show you the labels so you know which is which.
