comment Replace yum with apt
Wait, what? Do you understand the difference between the two? Why is one "better" than the other? You can't replace package managers (sanely) and expect to have a working system. Besides, Ubuntu and Fedora's package structures differ.

comment Strange directory name, shown with a backslash
mv "/development " "/development". Or you can add %20 to your URL: foo.com/development%20

Override it. See my comment.

comment Create alias to change directory and list contents
You aren't overriding it. You are telling bash to run cd ... && ls when you type in cd into your prompt.

comment How to get list of computers similar to what is shown under “Network” in Windows
You could ping all of the addresses on the network, but I'm not sure why the GUI solution isn't working for you. What version of NetworkManager are you running?

xautolock locks the screen, yes, but I need to lock the screen when I press a button. I already figured it out, but thanks for the suggestions ;)

Well, that's the tradeoff. Either long term support, or recent software.

GIMP is really the only thing I can suggest. Also, you can run KDE and GNOME applications side-by-side. You won't need to use the KDE desktop, just a few of the libraries required by the binaries.

@polynomial: That seems like a good solution (maybe post it as an answer?). I don't have a second computer to SSH with, but I can try and print the process list every second or so to deduce what is happening.

@andcoz: I saw a few dbus-send things while Googling, but sadly none of them worked. I even looked at the LightDM API reference for a solution, but even that doesn't have anything. Heck, I even tried to look at the source of Ubuntu's user switching panel (sorry, can't read like 1,000,000 of C). I might try emailing the dev list for help...
