comment when working in Ubuntu it crashes into TTY
When it dropped you to TTY, did it show any errors in the Ctrl+Alt+F1 TTY about anything? If so, what was the error?

comment How to install Eclipse J2EE IDE from a tarball?
@Silambarasan: You may have better luck just saving Eclipse down onto your user directory - it does still operate from the user directory, even though you may want to place it in /usr/ or elsewhere. This is what I do to use it :/

comment Configuring SKS to sync with other KeyServers
Thanks. As this answer details both the Ubuntu keyservers as well as the general process for syncing with any keyserver, I've marked this as the answer.

comment Recover deleted data with rm -rf on Wubi?
@arrange put an emphasis on "few". They deleted the entire /home/ dir structure, according to their message. It's quite possible, then, that the section the /home/ area was on is in fact screwed up beyond repair or recovery. Also note this is wubi so not everything works.

comment Is there any way to separate IRC networks in Pidgin's chat window?
this is my opinion, but... "When in doubt, irssi". Also, Pidgin is pretty much not considered an IRC client by many linux support areas, because it only very loosely supports the IRC protocol.

Are you restricted to using pidgin, or are you open to trying other IRC clients? xchat (in the partner repos) has this functionality OOTB (out of the box).

comment Freeze when I open Chromium while Minecraft is full screen?
Minecraft and Chromium both use a ton of memory. This may be contributing to the freeze if both programs are using a lot of memory.

comment VirtualHost and 403 Forbidden problem with Apache
@Joaquin by default it uses root from the default install. you'd need to modify the system's files to use a different user/group.

comment “allrequestsallowed.com”… Hack attempt?
I've had similar requests 404, 500, 403, and 20x on my servers running nginx or lighttpd, and after sending the IPs/source hosts to a cyber-analysis firm, it was confirmed it was attempts to exploit holes in the server among other things. Similar requests as the one that was specified by the OP, different hosts. Are you saying that they should be entirely disregarded? Because if they are truly concerned, they can block the host(s) in iptables.

comment Calling unity in terminal breaks unity in X session
Just an FYI: 9.04 reached End of Life in the past year, you should consider updating to the LTS to recieve long-term support. Also, wherever they type the command is generally irrelevant - if the thing can't run from the tty, the system should state as such: "No X Server available" (or similar)

comment I think I accidently deleted the PATH variable
Here's the base path from a standard user on my system (which has sudo): /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin. If you put into .bashrc: export PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin, then do source ~/.bashrc, it may restore the functionality you need. All this is in the terminal, of course. NOTE: I have not tested this!

comment Configuring SKS to sync with other KeyServers
Shoulda made myself clearer: I am running an SKS keyserver, and I'd like to be able to get it synced with other keyservers, such as the Ubuntu keyservers.
