    [SOLVED] Re: how to kill crashed firefox

    You could use the "top" command, and then use the "k" subcommand to kill it.

    Or locate the PID with:


    ps aux | grep firefox

    [SOLVED] Re: sudo is not playing nicely

    You may be confusing "sudo" with "su". The latter works the way you describe.

    Since the root login is disabled by default in Ubuntu, "sudo" is normally used in place of "su".

    [other] Re: Standard permission for pubring.gpg?

    In my case, all the files in ~/.gnupg are user:user and have permissions 600 (rw-------).

    I don't know how the owner became root. Maybe you used sudo in a situation where it wasn't necessary?
