comment How to make all windows except dialogs full screen in XFce?
If you wanted to try ratpoison, you could also try XMonad. It has modules including configurations for use with desktop elements that work out-of-the-box. The dialogs float, but have no decorations (by default, because as XMonad is more like a framework to build your own WM, anything is possible).

comment Need to find reason for USB I/O errors
Google says there is or was a tool called USBMon, there is a man page at least ... But you can also use Wireshark to view the packets.

Have you enabled USB 2 in VirtualBox, and installed the extension ?

comment gracefully terminating processes with killall <processname>
SIGUSR1 can mean anything depending on the application. It's not necessarily related to terminating it.

comment Need to find reason for USB I/O errors
What you show here means the usbmon module is built into your kernel. It doesn't mean that you have an executable called usbmon.

comment Unable to restart xmonad on archlinux
In the general case, rewrite XMonad so it will pass its state in some other way ? There is a system limit to the size of arguments passed to a execv call, data isn't usually passed as argument... In the case of your config you could try removing from your layout hook the useless onWorkspace that lead to "allLayouts" and use onWorkspaces to group the workspaces that will have the same layouts, to save a little bit of space ... (You should edit your question with your config and the actual problem, perhaps someone will have a better idea).

comment Unable to restart xmonad on archlinux
If you have other layout modifiers, it adds to the size ... Because XMonad keeps the state by passing it as argument when it restart, ultimately there is a limit. But it's difficult to say what is making you hit the limit with only 10 workspaces without seeing your configuration ...

comment Unable to restart xmonad on archlinux
The first google result for that error is the module XMonad.Actions.WorkspaceCursors : "TODO ... : restoring xmonad's state results in: xmonad: executeFile: resource exhausted (Argument list too long) when you specify more than about 50 workspaces." If that's not your problem, you'll need to post your xmonad.hs.

It exits without error, so how do you see it didn't work ? Do you get any error messages ?

comment Run bash script on startup in Linux Mint and open mate-terminal automatically
Well yes, because exec your_shell will execute your_shell. But if the variable $SHELL is empty it will return immediately.

(What I meant is, is "$SHELL" defined when the script is ran by this "autostart").

comment Run bash script on startup in Linux Mint and open mate-terminal automatically
This can't really be done "at boot". Perhaps you mean when your user logs into the Desktop ? If that "Control Center" is similar to the Ubuntu one, this question (and second answer) is relevant. And what will be the value of $SHELL here ? Because when I run bash -c "echo $SHELL" I get zsh :)

comment Can no longer switch keyboard layouts in xfce
It's not surprising that loadkeys didn't work in X, as it only changes the console keymap, not X keyboard layout. Try setxkbmap latam to see if X actually have the layout. There is no xkb daemon, xkb is part of X11.

comment How to execute Mach-O 32-bit C++ program on Linux?
From this related question listed on the side, no, it looks like there is currently no way to run it on Linux.

comment How to execute Mach-O 32-bit C++ program on Linux?
No, your problem is having a Mach-O executable. Wikipedia says "Mach-O was once used by most systems based on the Mach kernel.[citation needed] NeXTSTEP, OS X, and iOS are examples of systems that have used this format for native executables, libraries and object code."

comment How do you set the default behavior of tar?
Your "target path" here is an argument to the -f option, that is why the order is this way. A usual way to use tar is to pipe its output to whatever compression program you want to use, that's why the default is to not require a target file. Not everyone want Gzip (or one of the few provided as options).

comment Applying mouse settings on startup
/etc/init.d is for scripts that start and stop services on systems with SysV init (Upstart and systemd can be configured to run them, for compatibility). How do you change the sensitivity ? Unless you have a unusual setup, you are probably using xinput or xset to configure Xorg ? In that case the correct way is to change the global Xorg configuration : this affects everyone using the computer, or add the command to your .xprofile (or equivalent for your DM/DE) if it is just for your user account.
