comment How can I download deb from a PPA?
You don't explicitly say this is an unusual case. And with certain assumptions which veterans of this site make, you should also make note of the specific warnings that could go with this, such as ensuring that if the download is destined for offline installation that the dependencies are also downloaded, and similar warnings.

comment How can I download deb from a PPA?
Beware: this does not download any dependencies, and you will still need to download the dependencies if you are downloading .deb files separately.

comment Ubuntu Touch or Nexus 7
This question is highly opinion based, which is not in line with the scope of the site. Highly opinion based questions and answers are generally closed as such.

comment where can I get the basic knowledge about package management or other advanced stuff?
@social_loser those are still separate questions. Startup mechanics are a topic in itself (read up on Upstart and SystemD, preferably SystemD since that's what 15.04 and later use). 'package met rules' means nothing to me - clarify what you mean there. In either case though, it's still too broad.

So edit your question to get rid of the mistype?

You are asking about a topic that spans well over 50 pages of information. If you have a specific question, ask it. The current form is too broad to be answered within the restrictions on the site.

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).

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.
