My thoughts
Me on launchpad PPA
Evidently one of my mini-apps was useful enough to make it on to Webupd8
Do you use/like that app? Maybe you want to help fund a cryptogram game

comment How to stop `apt-get` complaining about unmet dependencies?
Awesome. Better than my "you could do it like this", but without the how. Deleting my answer.

comment Cross-Distro Compatibility- What's stopping it?
You can sort of. It just takes lots of tweaking. It's about different ways to manage what goes where, dependency chains, and other almost trivial but non-trivial things.

comment Cross-Distro Compatibility- What's stopping it?
You can get pacman in LFS, you just have to build and install it. The LFS docs have a section on building and installing the deb package management systems. Alien is a way to convert from rpm to deb that works sometimes. Not worth posting as an answer, but possibly informative.

comment Does a bad sector indicate a failing disk?
Not so. Bad sectors just indicate grossly high traffic to a sector. In MOST cases, it does indicate a failing disk. You can tune your seek speed to mark slower responses as bad though... It's too complex to say always though.

Just a note, it's easier to use feh than muck about in gsettings.

it might be worth noting that just because it's enabled, doesn't mean it's subscribed to any addresses.

Not lame, opencv. I have it installed on 12.04 via apt-get install python-opencv and it works fine.

It sort of is (as far as apps can tell), but it's not as far as ultimate resolution is concerned.

comment Enable wifi monitor mode on Samsung Chromebook
The 9382 is the same one that is cited in the answer, so the answer is "should work, but you have to try it unless you find someone that owns one"

comment Install the same 64-bit packages as a 32-bit Xubuntu installation
:i386 "should" mean that it's not the native architecture. So your VM would actually have been x64 and the question is a moot point.

comment Ubuntu: If anyone can get a root prompt without password, isn't that compromising the gnome keyring?
Encrypting your home folder with encfs doesn't do anything for adding kernel modules and returning your computer is where I was going with it.
