Today I created a Linux development environment in my Windows 7 notebook, running a Lubuntu 14.04 with VirtualBox. System installed, first boot OK, then I noticed that the only screen resolution available was merely 800x600 pixels. The way to solve this was installing the VirtualBox Guest Additions, and I will go through this process step by step, bringing up few issues that I came across, and other Lubuntu users may experience too.
I'm using a SSH server app to access my android device's files. To make this environment more useful, I have improved many configurations, but Vim insists on printing H and F when pressing <Home> and <End> keys, respectively.
Working with development, we use to deal with many open windows and type all the time, so it is very useful to have keyboard bindings allowing more than only maximize or minimize windows. I use Lubuntu, which is based on Openbox, and I am publishing here my lubuntu-rc.xml customizations, which depending on your system can be named as lxde-rc.xml or openbox-rc.xml.
It is possible to reproduce on Linux the Windows ReadyBoost feature, where a pendrive and be used to optimize memory, being mounted as swap área with the highest priority. This process can only be done with root access and, obviously, a good sense, because if you made any partition mistake, you can really mess your system.
With a single command is possible to start, on Linux, a temporary webserver, publishing some folder contents in a port of your choice. To kill it, just the good and old Ctrl+C. Very useful in a lot of cases
