comment Change hidraw device from mouse to joystick
Oh. Sorry, my eyes glitched here, I thought the PID matched, for some reason. The VID/PID also need to be in the hid_have_special_driver array in hid-core.c. But the two devices supported by this driver don't work exactly the same way, and your device may also be different from those. It may not work out of the box just by adding its PID.

comment impossible to install xmonad-contrib using cabal
If you installed xmonad and contrib with apt, why do you want to reinstall it with cabal ? You should probably not mix and match packages from different sources, they could have different versions. This is what the thread you linked says.

comment Standard convention installation folder for GitEye on Linux and how to start it
Yes, /opt is the more usual place if everything must be in one directory. /usr/local is usually for software that respects the bin lib share organisation of files.

comment Override a few keycodes with XKB
They come from the setxkbmap -print, they are files from /usr/share/X11/xkb/. I think you have to give a whole keymap to xkbcomp but I could be wrong ...

comment Standard convention installation folder for GitEye on Linux and how to start it
I remember answering a similar question here. For the symlink, it would be /usr/local/bin or /opt/bin (which are not necessarily in the default path, this depends on the distribution).

comment 'Pass' password manager - does it require public key?
@Costas the "master-pass" is the passphrase of your gpg key. That's why you only have to input it when you retrieve the password, not when you store it.

comment 'Pass' password manager - does it require public key?
I think it can only use a pair of keys. Why would you prefer symmetric encryption ?

comment Restore sudo privileges
First, a directory owned by your regular user in /usr/bin is a really weird idea... For the current problem, the files in /usr/bin should be owned by root, but a dozen or so have also lost their setuid bit like sudo. The simplest would be to use the package manager. I'm finding apt-get --reinstall install but there may be something more fine-grained ...

comment Restore sudo privileges
This will only fix sudo. If the OP was trying to change permission of a directory, there is certainly more to fix.

comment Restore sudo privileges
It's not your sudo privilege. Depending on the command you ran, you broke part or all of the ownership/permissions of your system files. What command did you run ?

comment No /dev/hidraw device when I plug in a Yubikey
Possible. This is a random guess, but the key could be in a firmware installation/upgrade mode. I have a mouse that shows the same kind of interface when upgrading the firmware. From the docs on Yubico's website, the keys are configured with HID feature reports only, and the firmware isn't supposed to be modifiable.
