I would assume that you can just set both nic cards up, one as a primary and one as a secondary. In the event your primary goes down. You can then fall back on the secondary. I prefer static IP address but you should be able to use dhcp as well. Hope this helps Example for static. auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address ...

Yes, I had the same issue with a Dell Precision M6800 with a Quadro K5100M GPU, running Ubuntu 14.04.

Ubuntu 12.04 is very old. There is a great possibility your newer hardware is not supported properly. I would advise you to install the latest Ubuntu 16.04 and see if the problem persists.

You might want to use a very helpful package: apt-file (that you have to install first, and then apt-file update to fetch the list of files) apt-file list binutils-gold will list the files provided by that. It has also many more helpful features, like a search, to look for a package that provides a file that you need.

The version of libstdc++6 in Ubuntu 12.04 is 4.6.3. In order to get version at least 4.8.0, you will need to upgrade to at least 14.04, which has version 4.8.4. Since libstdc++6 is an essential system package, trying to install the 14.04 version manually, or to upgrade it by some other "hacky" method, will probably result in a broken system.

Startup-Disk-Creator works best when running on the same version as the ISO being used. It does not even successfully create a bootable ISO for Ubuntu 16.04 when run on a 14.04 system, so failure on 12.04 is no surprise. The bugs on this behavior are years old, do add yourself to the "does this affect me" lists. As you have discovered, dd is the common ...

I suggest that you have -- just one GUI for Linux, Because many GUIs could create confusion in certain types of programs -- generating many config files including screensaver and power Management too.

basically there is no way to really resolve that other than trying to force the install .. basically it needs libgnome-2.0 and you have 2.32.1-5 There is a good chance that if you forced it to install it would probably work with the 2.32 version and things would be fine but ... it is not guaranteed. Since it is added as a repository and you don't have the ...
