Select range of lines in Notepad++ using line numbers 9

In response to a question in this post we proposed the following method to select a range of lines in Notepad++ using the line numbers:

  1. Press Ctrl + G, type the start line and hit Enter to go to the start line.
  2. Then go to the menu, click on Edit and then Begin/End select.
  3. Press again Ctrl + G, and type the end line number and hit Enter to go to it.
  4. Back to the menu, click on Edit and then Begin/End select once more.
    By now you will have your range of lines selected.

GNU/Linux: start System Settings from terminal to view error/warning messages

Recently, we tried to understand why creating a hotspot would not work in Fedora 25 with Gnome 3.

Starting the control panel from the GUI (the launcher, or the power cog) did not provide us with the debug messages needed to understand what was going on.
So we needed the command to use that would start the control panel from a a terminal window

For Ubuntu 14.04 and newer, which by default are deployed with Unity, we used:

unity-control-center;

For Ubuntu 13.10 and older versions, which were deployed with Gnome 2, we used:

gnome-control-center;

For Fedora 25 with Gnome 3, we used again:

gnome-control-center;
