comment XTerm doesn't display *some* unicode characters properly?
Missing glyphs was my first theory, which is why I tried a variety of other fonts. Apparently they're all somewhat light in the same. TIL about xfd, so that was useful. Do you know from which font something like gnome-terminal is getting the missing glyphs? There doesn't appear to be an explicit configuration for that, at least in gnome-terminal. Maybe it's a global Gnome setting somewhere...

comment Confusion about systemd, environment files and command-line arguments to the service executable
Possibly systemd template unit files are worth looking at, although I don't understand your use case enough to be sure.

Yes, that's exactly what happens.

comment Is there a portable way to get the name of the WiFi card on the command line without additional parsing?
Things to keep in mind: "the first wireless interface" may not be "the active wireless interface", there may be more than one active wireless interface, and an active wireless interface is not necessarily the interface with a default route.

comment Weird behaviour of unprivileged LXC container
In the case of applications that have access to your X display, I don't think so, but I am not an X11 expert.

comment Cron vs systemd timers
That's quite a list of things you want in an answer. I think maybe you should spend some time learning the tools yourself and see if you can formulate those answers on your own, and if you have specific things you don't understand, ask them here.

comment Principles of file indexing in Linux
What do you mean by "indexing mechanism in Linux itself"? There is no general purpose file indexing mechanism. Individual applications (mysql, rpm, apt, locate, etc) all provide their own particular implementation, based on their needs and the whims of the developer.

comment Weird behaviour of unprivileged LXC container
If you are sharing an X display with the container, then programs in the container will be able to communicate with programs outside the container. This is what firefox is doing, and @meuh's solution is correct. The container is not "launching some program on the host", it is sending a notification to a program that is already running on the host.

comment Why do konsole expand $VAR inside single quotes in <-e> command line option?
And yet, you could still use strace to see exactly what's getting executed.

comment Why do konsole expand $VAR inside single quotes in <-e> command line option?
konsole doesn't "disobey quoting rules". It probably passes the string to something like sh -c, so you effectively lose a level of quoting. You could use a tool like strace to see exactly what it passes to the exec system call.

comment Is it possible to add a single executable, rather than an entire directory, to my $PATH?
No, $PATH may consist only of directories. You could simply symlink the particular executable you want into an existing directory in your $PATH.
