No your keys should ideally have been installed in /etc/ssl/private but is depended on the command you ran to create them and or the directory you were in at the time. Apache would have been consigured to reference them in the relevant location. apt-get purge will not remove these keys. To be safe, back them up and then do an apt-get purge apache2

Yes, you should update LibreOffice to a more recent version, as you are running a very old one (almost two years). You should try with LibreOffice 4.1.5.

Ubuntu is more resource intensive compared to Xubuntu (Unity vs XFCE), for example. As your hardware seems a little bit outdated maybe something like Xubuntu or Lubuntu can give you a better experience. But I think Unity had evolved a lot (even in performance terms) between 12.04 and now, so it should perform better than 12.04. So you can try to install ...

I don't think so. In fact, the GPU helps to have a better video RAM memory and allows RAM to be used in other processes, instead of the integrated video processors in most of the motherboards, which spend some of RAM memory for video. Note that if you have opened a heavy adobe flash app, if would affect the performance of CPU (strongly, if you have opened ...

12.04 may run well in 2D mode (you can choose it at log in). I found that Ubuntu in 2D mode takes about the same amount of resources than Xubuntu, so try 2D first. If that doesn't run fast enough then Lubuntu is a good choice for the amount of RAM you have installed. I expect your WinXP installation is running slow due to fragmentation issues, or various ...

This might be because your /etc/apt/sources.list is empty. If so, Ubuntu Sources List Generator helps you get a default sources.list. This Generator right now supports version later than 12.04. Cheers!

It's not clear whether you are trying to use the networking service (configured via the /etc/network/interfaces file) or the network-manager service (configured via the GUI). Normally, a true server would use the former, and wouldn't even have a GUI. You probably need to restore the original lo definition and add some dns-nameservers (I've used Google ...

Do you have optimus enabled in your laptop ? This means that you have both an intel / nvidia graphics chipset, that work together in certain ways to save power. It could be that your linux OS cannot find the nvidia chip , and hence cannot render anything on screen.

Upstart scripts have to placed at /etc/init, ending with .conf. Basically they require 2 sessions: one to indicate when to start, and another with the command to exec.

It seems like iptux crashed and could not cleanly close port no 2425 or it may also mean that an instance of iptux is running, so you need to first kill all instances of iptux from the command line(use Ctrl+Alt+t to open a terminal) using: killall iptux and also manually close port no 2425 if that did not close this port using: sudo fuser 2425/tcp and ...
