Running sudo chmod -R 777 /etc/ was a stupid thing to do. You probably recognise that now but you've set every file in /etc/ and its subdirectories to be readable, writable and executable by any account on the system. The files in there are mostly root owned and have permissions set for security... To stop just anybody or anything overwriting, deleting or ...

Since you're not using any special (i.e., special for the shell) characters in the filename, and since you're not giving any further commands, you can use the -x option and leave out the surrounding quotes for the shell: gnome-terminal --tab -x bash -c \ 'gedit "/media/ubuntuman/Onces And for Al/scripts/faceBook" & \ sudo cpulimit -e ubuntu-tweak ...

The varnish repo apparently does not provide prebuilt packages for Varnish-4.0 on precise i386 (32bit). Ideally this should be indicated in the instructions, but it it not mentioned.

Can I increase space through the Windows 7 partition It is risky operation, especially when you are really almost out of space. You may lost or damage your data, but if you want to try it, use some LiveCD with GParted (or install gparted when on liveCD system).

I can't comment (thanks askubuntu for this great restriction) so I have to write an answer. Did you uprgrade to another Ubuntu version or just update current system? You have problem with some flashing text but can you log in to the system? Are you sure that you have enough space on your partition with Ubuntu?

Since the case involves a system with 100% HD usage, so, installing any application will not work. The only safe option is to delete unnecessary files first. First in row would be temporary files sudo rm -rf /tmp/* Second, delete the cached applications. These are the binaries of applications and upgrades downloaded through the lifespan of the system. ...

Difference between installation procedure by apt-get install and apt-get source: sudo apt-get install <package>installs packages with their dependencies from repositories and cached files are found at /var/cache/apt/archives in .deb extension. sudo apt-get source <package> will download source files in current directory.

I have the same problem whenever I unplug an external monitor; The first time I unplug, the screen is dimmed (at the same time as the screen/work areas are being reorganised, i.e. windows repositioned) Then I re-plug the external monitor and unplug again, and the screen is getting full lighting back (is "un-dimmed").

The message "Dropbox is running from an unsoported location" appears always if you installed Dropbox from any source but the official PPA. Just click on "Don't ask again" and all should be fine.

12.10 is an unsupported release. You can't depend on its software repositories being maintained anymore. Your only valid upgrade path from 12.04 would be directly to 14.04 - the next LTS release. Edit /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades and set Prompt=lts Run do-release-upgrade in a terminal.

Depending upon the specific flavor of Ubuntu that you are running, it may be correct that you get a blank command for an update. The 12.04.5 point release was not originally planned. Please check the release announcement to verify if you are in fact using a flavor that should be receiving the update. Your reference to a Mythbuntu-related bug in the ...

From the terminal run: gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power button-power interactive You can also directly edit this configuration setting as well as your entire configuration database in Ubuntu 12.04 using a GUI application called Configuration Editor which is from the dconf-tools package in the Ubuntu Software Center.

In Ubuntu 14.04, logind.conf is provided by the package systemd-services, but this package does not exist in 12.04. I suppose that the source where you read about it was about 14.04, not 12.04.

I just upgraded from 12.04 If you really want to be certain. Install 14.04 in a virtualbox and then install all the normal software you use to try it out first.

A quick Google search for this error message This kernel does not support a non-PAE CPU. seems to indicate that this is a common problem. Apparently, on some systems the kernel fails to recognise that the CPU supports PAE, which is required by Ubuntu. A solution seems to be to boot with the forcepae kernel option, so try this: Open /etc/default/grub in ...

It sounds like your graphics card does not have sufficient 3D capabilities to run the Unity3D interface fluently. Is it an old card? You might want to use a different desktop environment once you finished updating. Like XFCE or LXDE.

Agree with Yashima, but, if your system monitor does not show Dropbox, don't be fooled, it's still running in the background. Open up a terminal window and kill it. Type in "ps -e", scroll and find the Dropbox process, note it's program ID (the number to the left of the name), then type in "kill PID" (replace PID with the program ID of the Dropbox process). ...

I'll assume you want to do something like add new life to a version of a Linux distribution you can't download anymore. If you can just download the ISO, that might be better.

Whatever user you created at the time of creating the image, the Ubuntu installer apparently ignored it, because it didn't create a /home directory for that user.
