I use Ubuntu for multiple reasons, and mainly as a back-up to when Windows decides to fail, or I wish to have a USB whose data contents would be best secured (and wish to have a tool to use whenever things go even more wrong) with the ext4 filesystem.

I have a moderate degree of knowledge about Ubuntu, but I will not claim any sort of mastery.

I also program a little in Python whenever I feel up to it, and frequently play Minecraft on the server "The Canadian Sandbox" (whose webpage is linked on my profile somewhere).

comment Install on HP 110-210 - Error: No Media Present
I haven't been able to resolve this kind of issue personally, so I only have second-hand info to go by. Also, I believe that's what SecureBoot was all about.

comment CPU running on 90% all the time on lubuntu
Looks like something called apport is maxing out your cpu. Is there anything that depends on apport? If not, then nix it.

Additional thing I found while lurking around, worth a read: Installing Ubuntu on UEFI-supported devices You may end up needing to get Windows 8 back on your system.

Make sure to mark this as the answer, so people can refer to it at a later point, and have an easy visual cue. =P

comment UBUNTU 14.04LTS Cannot Mount my SD Card
Then there might be something out there in either the Ubuntu Software Center (or whatever they call it now) or in the Synaptic Package Manager that will help you find something to read exFAT filesystems.

That's actually an issue I ran into already, and it turns out that there's some "signature verification" going on, making it near-impossible to install Ubuntu onto a new PC. Even bypassing the signature thing flubs, as the new EFI stuff makes things into a nightmare. I wouldn't know what to suggest, but at least you know a little more about your problem. =P

Try restoring the Ubuntu directory, then following the answer's advice. Edited this comment after a re-read. ><;

comment My local ubuntu server is not updated
Sorry about that, and thanks. I was posing it as an if, though, because I'm not sure if that's the answer they're looking for, in particular.

@Sergey Thanks for the clarification. I haven't had to use wget yet, but I would have to, in the future.

comment Software Center does not start on Ubuntu 12.10
Grab Synaptic Package Manager, and uninstall/re-install Ubuntu Software Center? That's the best advice I can offer, but it's not a firm answer.

comment How to download a file from a website via terminal?
Beat me to the punch. Dang. But yeah, it's wget [whatever web address]. If you want to choose the location, type cd [local location on your computer.] EXAMPLE: cd /home/omio/Desktop/ | wget http://thecanadiantestbox.x10.mx/CC.zip

Valid question for a workplace environment where the only person able to invoke sudo will likely never log on. =]

comment how to add ICQ account to empathy?
There are ways, in Pidgin's options, but please don't come after me if I'm wrong - I'm not 100% here, so I couldn't offer an actual answer. All I'm suggesting is technically a work-around anyways. I use many IM protocols together, which is why I suggested Pidgin.
