XFCE terminal problems

Do your XFCE terminals, if opened at very high resolutions, make your workspace transitions very slow (freezing the Desktop Environment for a couple of seconds)? I do not know if this a problem caused by vte, a terminal library shared with Gnome, or if it appears because of the new nVidia drivers.

Anyway, the solution is: disable terminal transparency

Simple (and bizarre) as that. 🙂

Working around OpenSSH 5.8 connection failures

If you currently have connection problems using OpenSSH 5.8 towards older installations, with errors like:
Read from socket failed: Connection reset by peer
even before the client/server key exchange and authentication, try appending the option:
-o KexAlgorithms="diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha1"

This worked for me in a couple of old server installations (namely, OpenSSH_5.3p1 Debian-3ubuntu5).

Alternatively, add the following
KexAlgorithms diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha1
to .ssh/config. Remember that you can restrict this option to only some hosts by using the line:
Host "hostpattern"
