Modifying an erroneous visudo file and cannot get into sudo

I recently modified the visudo file and turns out I can't get into visudo mode at all. Worst is that in Ubuntu 12.04 we can't use "su" command or log in as "root"

Here is the tips, from here

Use pkexec command,

Just type "pkexec visudo"

And modify or restore back to the original settings.

Disable auto mount from USB device

I have a problem with my Galaxy Nexus before and now my LG Nexus 4 - they keep pop up the nautilus if I insert the plug to the cable (I prefer charging my phone to the laptop).

So here is the solution, which finally I found from here

Go to your terminal, type dconf-editor. The find ""

And choose your preferred choice, mine is like this:

As I prefer the phone being automounted, I just feel annoyed with the nautilus pop up, hence I untick "automount-open" but choose "automount" and "autorun-never" instead.

I feel the autorun function is so Windowish.. and wondering why it ever exists. Not that it is bad.. but for me it is less preferred.

Changing Maximize, Minimize and Close Button from Left to Right in Unity

I am currently back to Ubuntu 12.04 due to stability issue with 12.10

But the problem is with the buttons. So here goes

gconftool-2 --set "/apps/metacity/general/button_layout" --type string ":minimize,maximize,close"

This will set these buttons to right pane of your windows :)

simplified from here

Customizing Workspace Navigation Shortcuts Using Gsettings

I got a problem in my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, since the configuration that I saved using the gnome-setting interface did not worked (as if it was never saved).

So I decided to google around and found this tips which I already customized to my enviroment:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings     switch-to-workspace-1 "[\"Q\"]"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings     switch-to-workspace-2 "[\"W\"]"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings     switch-to-workspace-3 "[\"E\"]"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings     switch-to-workspace-4 "[\"R\"]"

Here, I used Alt with for workspace 1-4
