comment Home folder icons dont change
Could it be that you started gnome-tweak-tool using sudo? because then you would have applied the changes only to the root account.

comment Internet connection lost for browser but still there for transmission
Guessing from the other answers it sounds like a problem with DNS. Could you try nslookup example.com when your network doesn't work. If you get a timeout this is probably a problem with the DNS server.

comment Partition Configuration to avoid reinstalling applications after update
Just decide if you want /opt or /usr/local, having both doesn't have any benefits. For future installation you'll just need to ensure that the software and its components are installed in that directory. For applications that are installed using configure + make or install scripts you'll maybe need to pass options to configure or install.sh to change the install directory.

comment Partition Configuration to avoid reinstalling applications after update
/usr is the place where applications that are delivered through the Ubuntu repositories are installed, and there are people that use a separate partition for /usr. /usr/local is also a very common place to but applications you installed yourself, but I would still suggest using /opt, because you'll only be installing some specific applications there and won't need a full /usr partition for that, but that could just be my opinion.

comment Control external monitor brightness via software
When the command you provided works for your external monitor you can set custom shortcut keys in System Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts.

comment I can send email but, I can't receive mail
You should explain what your problem is in more detail! Is it a problem with your email client or are you running a server that is supposed to send/receive emails?

comment Three's mobile broadband
The Huawei E586 is a personal hotspot, so shouldn't you log into the provided WiFi network to access the internet instead of plugging it into your machine?

comment Leave Ubuntu server to compute in background
Yes you have to input that into the shell. Your shell needs to exit as soon as you close your client, because by exiting the client you're closing the connection to the server.

comment Connect to Google Talk without giving access to my full Google Account
I'm normally using gajim and there it works like explained. You could install gajim just to check if it's a problem with the server or if empathy is acting strange.

comment Install ubuntu 12.x
That's not common at all, but pretty hard to analyse without sitting in front of the machine. By "the disk" you mean the harddrive or the CD?

comment Install ubuntu 12.x
If you don't need the data from Ubuntu anymore or have it backed up somewhere else you can just overwrite it.
