comment Removing Clock screenlet in Linux Mint
Well with command line you can only kill all at once, removing only one wont work. If it's transparent by accident you could open the screenlets manager and click the button "reset screenlets config" and after that you should be able to add a new clock without transparency theme.

comment Removing Clock screenlet in Linux Mint
Well I've had a similar issue with a transparent calendar screenlet, the workaround was trying to catch and rightclick a pixel which is not transparent. But I guess your clock is not transparent, isnt it?

Which desktop environment, Mate, Cinnamon, Gnome, ...? Is the clock part of the screenlets package?

comment Unable to connect Intex 3.5g modem in Ubuntu 11.04
I strongly recommend to upgrade your ubuntu version as 11.04 is not supported anymore!! wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases (This, in addition might even fix your 3G modem issues. Nowerdays, 3G works plug'n'play in Ubuntu with network manager. Give it a try.)

comment How to run ssh -t user@remote 'sudo nohup bash -c “comand”' in background
The main problem seems to be how to run this command as superuser in backround without setting a password. Have a look at this: stackoverflow.com/a/4327123/1260906

comment How to run ssh -t user@remote 'sudo nohup bash -c “comand”' in background
Please add some more backround information. Do you want to run it in background of the localhost or remotehost? How are you authenticating with the remotehost, via public key or password?
