comment Are sd cards infected automatically in ubuntu?
This is too broad a question. Each malware is different; not all malware will attack removable media. For this reason, this question cannot be answered within the scope of the site.

comment (Just started using Ubuntu) Can't connect to Internet even with Ethernet plugged in
If the issue you believe is because you're hooked up to a switch, then that's not an Ubuntu issue. Try other ports on the switch if possible. If actually possible plug directly into the internet feed going to the switch. As well, provide output of the commands that Jacek asked for.

comment Static LAN IP Problems on Ubuntu
Then you probably did something wrong - and most 'online tutorials' are not authoritative references. So, following the steps here will help you with the GUI portion - that should help with configuration. If it still doesn't work on your network, then you probably didn't set things up right anyways. Why do you need static, though? Is DHCP not enough for your environment?

comment Static LAN IP Problems on Ubuntu
You should not have to define network or broadcast, I believe... is there a reason you included these? (It may be breaking things). This will also break any attempts to use other wireless networks, as you would have to change /etc/network/interfaces for all other wireless networks. You should also be using Network Manager for static IP configuration, if you are on a GUI Ubuntu installation

comment Can't execute compiled program: Exec format error
Has nothing to do with FTP upload failing - it's more likely that you should not be building things on Windows you plan on deploying on Ubuntu (and vice versa unless you're configured to do Windows crosscompiliation on Ubuntu)

comment Can't execute compiled program: Exec format error
If you are compiling on a non-Ubuntu system it is VERY likely you are not going to get the correct libraries linked to the program, unless you're compiling a static binary file. You should always compile on an environment that you expect to deploy to, rather than compile on a different distro/environment and expect it to just work.

comment Executing .sh file for Vassal engine returns “java: file not found”
So, Java is not installed on your system, OR you have missing things - i.e. something existed and is gone. Is there any more to that error message than just "file not found"?

comment How do I find my network IP address, netmask, and gateway info?
Also make a note this will not work in cases where the system devices are controlled by /etc/network/interfaces / the kernel; for example, my laptop has a static IPv4 of 10.50.1.10 with a netmask of 255.255.255.0 (or /24 if you prefer CIDR prefixes), which is used in a static-LAN environment, and is configured through /etc/network/interfaces - this is listed as "unmanaged" if you have Network Manager on your system, so nmcli will never show the configurations in place there.

comment I messed up my php.ini file on ubuntu php 5
There's multiple php.ini files on ubuntu (FPM has one, the Apache2 plugin has one, CGI has one, and so does CLI). What's the full file path to your php.ini that you messed up?

comment 'iptables -a' just hangs and never returns?
Do other commands hang as well, other than iptables?

comment Bricked Tosh W8 64bit
This is a very ambiguous question and infinitely broad. If the system won't pass power-on self test, then it's likely a bigger issue than hard disks not booting. Does it fail POST with a specific error?
