comment Lacking some software and fonts on a fresh installation on an ARM-based Chromebook
You can easily install packages after installation, there's absolutely no reason to reinstall. I thought the software center was present in the default installation; how did you install?

comment How do I quickly encrypt a file with AES?
You can also use AES (meaning AES-128). AES-128 is slightly faster and is not less secure.

comment How do I quickly encrypt a file with AES?
There is no reason to prefer AES 256 to AES 128. @Lekensteyn Never use ECB for confidential data either — basically ECB should never be used (for experts only: ECB should never be used except in some very specific cases). More generally, the openssl command line tool is mostly a proof-of-concept for testing the OpenSSL library. The right answer to this question is either GPG or some archiver such as 7z.

comment Went from blinking cursor boot to grub command line, first time 14.04 fresh install, can you help?
@Killjaden Your question isn't clear. Did the installer boot to a blinking cursor, or did you go through the installer and then reboot to your installed system but get a blinking cursor? What did exactly you do in the livecd?

@bodhi.zazen Blinking cursor isn't the same as black screen, and the boot info transcript shows a problem mounting the root filesystem, not a problem related to graphics drivers.

comment gpg: keyblock resource ‘/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d//webupd8team-sublime-text-3.gpg’: resource limit
Please run the command sudo env LC_ALL=C apt-get -f install to show the messages in English. An automatic translation of error messages back into English is more confusing than anything, because exact wording matters.
