When I open a new XFCE terminal, the window title is "terminal".
If I ssh to another computer via ssh mooch, the title changes to
"sdstern@mooch:~" Typing "exit" to return to my desktop does not affect
the window title.
Starting clean, "ssh -p 12345 linode.sterndata.com" does NOT change the
Anyone know what's going on with XFCE Terminal?
Also, this is exactly the same thing I see if I use gnome-terminal
instead, so this is probably a Works-As-Designed. Help me understand the

I have a Lenovo X230 (laptop with a small internal screen) and
a large external screen.
When the external screen is not plugged in, mouse movements are
When I plug in the external screen (I have the XFCE desktop spread
over both internal and external), horizontal movements of the mouse
become quite "jerky". It seems to move in minimum units of around 10
It's almost as if mouse movements are being calculated as a percentage
of the screen width.
I can't find anything about this via searching. Anyone have any ideas?

is it "normal" for emacs in Fedora to have 'backward-delete-char-untabify
bound to the Del key? Or is this "normal" for emacs in general? This
really doesn't give the expected behaviour, and IIRC it used to work
as expected at some time.
MOTT I use Ctrl-d, but when you press Del and the visible effect is
Backspace, that's a bit annoying. To make it even more funny, M-x
describe-key says for backspace:
| DEL (translated from <backspace>) runs the command
| delete-backward-char, which is an interactive compiled Lisp function.
Fortunately, (global-set-key (kbd "<delete>") 'delete-char) works around
it, but now 'backward-delete-char-untabify isn't bound to a key anymore,
and 'forward-delete-char-untabify seems to be missing at all.
As part of a temporary experiment, I put an Nvidia card in
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108 [GeForce GT 430] (rev a1)

The gnome-control-center sound panel seems to believe that
it can output audio to the HDMI output, but nothing comes
out on a sound test.
If I install the binary nvidia driver from rpmfusion, I
do get HDMI audio, so I'm guessing the nvidia driver
just can't do audio yet?
Another weird thing is that aplay -L lists the built in
intel audio S/PDIF:
HDA Intel PCH, ALC887-VD Digital
IEC958 (S/PDIF) Digital Audio Output
But gnome-control-center no longer sees it as an output
option, so I can't get audio by going through my receiver
Any of this sound familiar? (I'll be taking the nvidia
card out soon, so I'm not really looking to try and fix
any of this, but I thought I'd mention the weirdnesses :-).
I have a lot of problems with the nvidia proprietary driver. However
nouveau is very much too slow so that I have to use the nvidia driver.
They ask for logverbose option to be set to at least 6 to send bug
reports. I see how I can do that for a manual start with startx, how
can I do it for all normal starts? I am using F18 with KDE. I do not
want to restart the X server manually each time I switch on the
