comment How to run ubuntu in windows 7 like a app?
@amanthethy Wubi is very very unstable and buggy - it's not recommended due to lack of UEFI support and incompatibility with Windows 8 and such, so virtualizing is a better solution

comment Which apps read/write an SQLite 3 database in Ubuntu?
Editing an SQLite3 .db file requires knowing the SQL to make changes to the sqlite3 database anyways even with apps that can read the file - is there a reason you don't use the command line sqlite3 program to do that?

Post your solution as an answer and accept it yourself.

This is too broad a question. Most hardware recommendation threads are like this as well.

comment Ubuntu on a Getac V110
This question will be opinion based rather than actually being answerable within the confines of the scope and requirements set forth on this site's help center. It is therefore not a good fit with the site. Post a specific question if you have one. Otherwise, consider that this site is not a forum like the Ubuntu Forums, and open-ended questions such as the one you ask are not a good fit here.

comment How to build a source package?
I haven't ever had to actually package from scratch, I kind of just inherited the packages I maintain. But yes it can be tricky and frightening

You're asking multiple questions which is against the site format. Ask one question per actual question post, please.

comment patch unexpectedly ends in middle of line
Unless you provide the patch file or a link to where we can find it in plain text, we can't actually determine what the problem is...

@gurupalsingh try pinging 8.8.8.8 from the VM and tell me if the pings are returned or whether it's just getting failures. (DO NOT paste the output here)

comment MTP support on Ubuntu 12.04 using Ubuntu 14.04 repositories
NEVER mix 12.04 and 14.04 repos or software unless you REALLY know what you're doing - you're guaranteed to nuke your system if you don't know what you're doing.

comment Failed in fetching updates/upgrade (Virtual Box)?
@gurupalsingh this is a networking issue - either with your firewall permissions or otherwise - the network in the VM can't see out to the Internet which IS a network problem

comment New to Ubuntu-updates, security, on Acer Aspire One ZG5
WHERE do you come up with your argument on security updates? Security issues are fixed in each release when they're fixed (in community-supported Universe packages, when the security team sponsors in fixes from the community). All supported releases do get security updates.

comment please give me a step by step procedure for file sharing using LAN
Um... no, I don't think ssh installs the OpenSSH server, which is needed for ssh to connect to the other systems... and I don't think you actually need to manually install sshfs either, as Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, and Kubuntu's default file managers all can handle connecting with SSH/SFTP to remote servers without needing sshfs on it. Automount/config at boot, that's trickier, but still, your post is not accurate in getting it set up.

comment best approach - SFTP on amazon ec2.micro
You've asked multiple questions at once, which is bad becaues that's not the style of the site... I'd split up your questions into individual questions rather than all at once. (The site is typically 1 question, multiple potential answers - A style which this question in its current form does not abide by.)
