comment How to Install utorrent in ubuntu 13.10
13.10 is past End of Life and not supported on this site. Upgrade to a supported release (14.04 is your likely upgrade target).

comment Virtual Box Resolution Stuck at 640 x 480
Is Ubuntu the host and Windows in the VM, or the other way around?

comment Laptop heats up when I start/use PhpStorm IDE
@jQuery.PHP.Magento.com Correct. Either use a less resource intensive program/IDE, or rate limit your processor (affects globally) or do nothing. Alternatively, invest $10-$20 for a laptop cooling pad with fans that can increase airflow to the bottom of the computer (and help a little with getting hot air away from the system; note that this option is exactly what I do and my laptop doesn't overheat and I didn't have to change anything on the system at all except to sacrifice one USB port).

comment LAN problems accessing Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Ubuntu 10.04 (Server) is End of Life as of yesterday and 10.04 Desktop is long since EOL. You need to upgrade to a supported release to get continued support here.

comment Does Ubuntu commercial support supports Kubuntu 15.04?
Kubuntu is not Canonical supported. Core components such as the kernel and drivers might be, however Kubuntu is a community supported variant and not Canonical supported and it is possible that commercial support will not give full coverage to Kubuntu systems.

comment Problems with dpkg -i and brackets on 15.04
@serg they could however dependencies would likely break. The issue is software which relies on older libraries, not a case of 'They can't install older libraries" (although this does become the issue eventually)

comment Unable to reinstall windows 7. I have tried EVERYTHING. (computer won't recognize flash drives?)
@powteht that means that either the USB was not set up for booting right, or your system doesn't have the right boot order and doesn't boot to USB, or your system simply cannot boot to USB. That isn't an Ubuntu issue.

comment Improved Banking Security
"Do you not have duel security? Most nowadays have a keypad you need a code from to access the banking." <-- Which banks have this? Currently, you're essentially switching ATMs/credit card processing systems with 2Factor Authentication, of which only a handful of banks implement currently.

comment Improved Banking Security
You may want to rephrase "over wireless" to "over unsecured wireless" - there's encryption within protected wifi networks to limit interception of data, but on public wifi it's easily intercepted.

comment How to make firefox ask for master password only when trying to show passwords
This kind of change requires core code changes in core functionality. I highly doubt you'll find a solution to implement this via Ask Ubuntu.

comment Ubuntu 14.10 for Vmware esxi 5.1
To my knowledge there is no compatibility issue except with the VMware tools in that version of ESXi. However, VMware is likely more qualified to explain what they mean by 'compatible' and 'supported' for their software

comment texlive-pstricks-doc unable to install on Ubuntu 15.04
File a bug. This is something that needs fixed at the developer level, not here on Ask Ubuntu.
