Allows system to be halted and session closed by KDE. Very useful to save applications states, especially with the KDE apps that behave correctly.

Alias to play flash videos with mplayer. You can replace mplayer with your favorite video player.

This alias supports Chrome & Firefox's way of handling the flash plugin. It will play all the videos in the cache. Note that certain videos might never make it to the cache, if the publisher ask for them not to: they will just be loaded in RAM.

A variant if you're just interested in playing the audio, for example for a music :

alias flashmusic="mplayer -vo null \$(find /proc/\$(pgrep -f 'libgcfl|libflashplayer')/fd/ -printf '%p %l\n' |grep FlashXX | cut -d\ -f1)"
