I used a similar approach to rox, but I used the build for Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) to get tmux 1.8 on my 12.04 system. I downloaded tmux_1.8-5_amd64.deb from the Ubuntu tmux package page, https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/tmux. You may need to get a different file if you are running a different processor architecture (e.g. i386). Then, I used dpkg ...

I assume that you mean that new folders are created at /home/user/Desktop/tmp. Or do you mean that the create folder is /home/user/Desktop//tmp?

python is the default interpreter used by the distribution. It may (or may not1) point to python3 in the future. python2 is the default Python 2 interpreter (that is the same as above if python points to python2, not otherwise).

It's likely that something this program requires that's available on 14.04 isn't available on 12.04.

The most convenient way is probably to use a PPA. I'm using the WebUpd8 PPA (https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+archive/ubuntu/java).

Linux As @Mohammad Reza Fathinia said, you should use Linux as your OS. I recommend nearly anyone to use Ubuntu Desktop once and then change it, if it's necessary.

Just run into the same issue, and in my case it was because i had a virtual bridge that had all other interfaces connected to it (created while configuring Xen) .
