comment Mount external hard drive automatically
You said: "If you want to automount it when you plug in while the system is started, then check "udev" / "automount"." What do you mean with check "udev" / "automount"?

With regard to Elementary OS (Freya) the File Manager doesn't have any option (at least no GUI access to such options). So an alternative would b welcome. Thanks.

comment Restore torrent after OS installation
How can I make sure henceforth the .torrent files will be saved somewhere I can control? I can't see the option to choose the destination file of my magnet links / .torrent files in the preferences.

comment Restore torrent after OS installation
I usually download a magnet link, but I'm never saving them anywhere, they open in Transmission which then takes care of everything. Where should the links be saved?

Can you be more explicit? What do you mean by "adding the .torrent file to Transmission"?

comment Custom Launcher doesn't appear in Slingshot (eOS Freya)
I thought of that and the values of the Categories variable are the same as the gnome-control-center.desktop file, i.e. Categories=GNOME;GTK;System; and yet, whereas the control center shows, my launcher doesn't. I'm updating my post for reference.

Yeah, but isn't it more a work-around than a solution?

comment How to create a “Turn Off Screen” Action?
For now I made a small executable bash script using the command line above, called screen-off which I moved to my /usr/bin. It shows now as an application rather as an action. I would still like to know where those "actions" are defined and fix this properly.

It seems the command line to turn off screen is xset dpms force off. See this link.

Ideally I want to do that with my keyboard.

It's a start. I suspect there must be somewhere some "action" launcher? Much like there are application launchers?

comment What are the URIs starting with file:// or application://?
PS: I know the application:// or app:// from the use of zeitgeist, see: zeitgeist-project.com/docs/0.8.2/… .

comment What are the URIs starting with file:// or application://?
Indeed if I enter file:///home/benjamin/my_file.txt, I can access and open that file. So only web browsers can read the URI? Or can I use these URIs from the terminal too?

@bdowning: the first link is excellent, it would be great if they'd tell how to get a fast boot too.

comment Can GRUB font size be customised?
OK, I see elsewhere the equivalent of update-grub is grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg.

comment Can GRUB font size be customised?
Nice indeed I found this documentation but somehow I need to update-grub, which command I don't seem to have on Fedora 16 (?).
