Brightness control buttons do not produce events due to an outdated kernel driver. It can be fixed by adding "acpi_osi=" boot parameter, just like you added "acpi_backlight=vendor". So add "acpi_osi=" instead.

Kubuntu isn't really compatible with Language Support. Probably you can start it from a terminal window: gnome-language-selector but I doubt it would be a good idea to try to use it for controlling display language or regional formats.

It is however very slow but you can sometimes switch back ...

The behavior you describe will occur if the user in question is in the nopasswdlogin group (assuming it's enabled in PAM, which it sounds like it is). You can remove the user from that group with the command sudo gpasswd -d USERNAME nopasswdlogin, replacing USERNAME with their actual username.

By default youtube-dl uses avconv, but you can tell it to use ffmpeg instead. Then use youtube-dl with --prefer-ffmpeg flag, e.g.: youtube-dl -f 137+140 --prefer-ffmpeg <url> To avoid typing that flag everytime, you can put it in the configuration file.

Ipods don't support USB storage so you must sync them like you do to Itunes.

You do not need to edit /etc/network/interfaces. When you connect to a wired network, just disable wireless in Network Manager. And wired network card will receive an ip address by dhcp. It should work this way.
