The problem is solved. The /home/$user/.Xauthority owner were changed by something (I think, that it might by XVnc service). Owner were "root" instead "$user". I type "chown "$user:$user /home/$user/.Xauthority" and all is great now. I can log in my account without any problems.

The message from Boot-repair-disk that helped me, especially the last sentence: If your computer reboots directly into Windows, try to change the boot order in your BIOS.

Not "safe" at all. Running a command terminal as root makes everything you do (including mistakes) Very Powerful, and when you try (intentionally or not) to do something dumb, you're not protected by the restrictions placed on non-root users.

as you can see libc6 2.15 is used in ubuntu 12.04, so you have to find and add a external repository, "sideload"/install it manually or compile it yourself if you need a newer version... as ubuntu 12.04 is supported for just another year, i would suggest you to upgrade anyway to a newer (lts-)release! - if it is possible wait 2 months and get 16.04 lts ...

Easiest way to do this is as suggested above. First, temporarily remove your first hard drive (the one with Windows on it). Second, install Linux to the second hard drive (which for now is the only one connected). Third, put your first hard drive back in, so that you now have two hard drives installed, each with its own OS. From there, it's a simple ...

-1- Be careful when you run an external program as udev execution will be suspended during the external program's execution. Better said, it will wait until the external program exits before proceeding. You can still execute a long winded program but you must "detach" it immediately, by running it in the background. In yr case, yr motoe.sh should probably ...

You tagged that you're using XAMPP, which doesn't actually install PHP to your system. The version inside XAMPP may be php 5.6, but the version installed to your system is different. Since you're on 12.04, I don't think you can install php 5.6 from the standard repos using apt-get. You have two options: 1) Install php 5.6 manually. This is the best way, ...

Practically speaking, if you are about to uninstall a number of old kernels (or perhaps you are part-way through that process) and you want to speed things up, you could try the following: Edit the file /usr/sbin/update-grub as root, and add the line exit 0 after the line #!/bin/sh. Use apt-get or Software Center to remove your unwanted kernels as planned. ...
