After many hours of searching $ sudo apt-get purge pango-graphite worked for me. This was broken on a dist upgrade to 14.10, and since I spend 90+% of my time in mate-terminal or gnome-terminal this was truly driving me crazy. Thanks!

Hence some of the functionality that you get in windows might not be available in ubuntu. You can go to the website of your NIC card vendor and check for drivers that can be installed in ubuntu.

Try to update to the latest version and then remove it. 1.7 is quite old (the latest one is the 1.12) and as I remember it had some install/upgrade is sues.

I had a silly problem with phpmyadmin cause i came from Windows and didn't know you had to press SPACE when picking Apache2 when installing phpMyAdmin from the Terminal, it might not be the problem you're having but i think it's worth mentioning in case anyone else has the same problem.

This is definitely a permission error. You are running sudo aplay -l which should not be necessary. As a user you should be able to run aplay -l.
