Xubuntu reloaded

What I did when I came back to xUBUNTU, NOW 14.04  LTS


- Apt-url to get installation apt links in a light app:

sudo apt-get install apt-url

----

- Gdebi to install deb packages in a light app:

sudo apt-get install gdebi

----

- Touchpad indicator to disable touchpad etc

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao&&sudo apt-get update&&sudo apt-get install touchpad-indicator

----

- VLC

sudo apt-get install vlc

For nightly VLC:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:videolan/master-daily &&sudo apt-get update&&sudo apt-get upgrade vlc

or if VLC not yet installed:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:videolan/master-daily &&sudo apt-get update&&sudo apt-get install vlc

----

- Enable Key-shortcuts for menu items of all programs (Ctrl-C, etc)

1. Enable editable accelerators in SettingsManager -> Appearance -> Settings

2. Hover the mouse over the menu item for which you want to change the shortcut and press the new key combination.

Use in terminal, etc. Works in all programs.
