comment XDG desktop/menu files and XFCE
As it turns out there's dozens of .desktop entries for okular in /usr/share/kde4 (which must have been left over from purging it via the package manager), but I doubt those are in play -- digging around in this stuff I think KDE uses some of its own extensions to XDG, and that what that's about. Anyway, I tried moving the whole directory, and same situation (no okular in my menu but it is still there in the main xfce one).

comment XDG desktop/menu files and XFCE
@Nasha Well it obviously picks up one from somewhere because it's in the main menu hierarchy, although as mentioned I don't think it's either of the versions I could find. However, almost everything in "my menu" is duplicated in the main one, and that's not an issue for that stuff. Also, the only place it should look for the stuff in my menu, if I understand things correctly, is what's specified in <AppDir>.

@fpmurphy1 Read the first paragraph (after the synopsis) of man ifconfig on a linux system.

comment Start a python script in `screen` on boot?
I'd suggest you write whatever to a file in /tmp instead and then have ssh, etc. use it as a greeting (dunno if ssh has greetings, I'd think the ascii artists of the world would already have beat down doors about that). Put another way, you might want to consider the XY problem here.

comment How to deactivate linux page/disk cache?
"some people recommended I do the benchmarks with out cache activated." -> Perhaps suggests an XY problem in that what you really want to do is clear the cache; see /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches. In any case, this is really a question about the linux kernel and has been appropriately migrated.
