comment Inconsistency of stderr redirection between tcsh and other shells
@StéphaneChazelas Yeah, that usually works for (very) simple commands, but it quickly becomes complex due to quoting issues, and people often make mistakes here.

revised How do I disable the touch screen on my laptop?
The correct directory is /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d, and, AFAIK, has always been this directory ... See for example this old wiki page from 2010: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Xorg&oldid=109241#xorg.conf.d

revised Highlight current mouse position
Remove space from the end of the lines; this matters because otherwise | and \ to continue to the next line won't work

comment CSH and all output (with errors) to file
Are you sure that you're using csh? In csh >& will redirect both stdout and stderr, but in Bourne shells it will redirect just stderr.

comment CSH and all output (with errors) to file
| won't pipe stderr, only stdout. You will need to use |& to pipe both stdout and stderr.

Remove some duplicate text that's not required (making the question shorted & easier to understand).

comment Starting Services without Systemd?
Or you can do something in the login shell: pgrep somed || somed... This obviously only works if you login with a shell, though...
