comment is ubuntu compatible with hp Notebook 15
"Ubuntu Desktop" is the flavor of Ubuntu - NOT the architecture. You're asking if Ubuntu works with an HP Notebook. Those vary model to model within their 15 series. The only way to answer is to research it yourself and compare their specs to the system requirements for each flavor of Ubuntu. ("Desktop" just means it has a GUI, and some tweaks for Desktops/Laptops instead of servers). Otherwise, this question cannot be answered with fact here and gets closed as "Opinion Based" instead of being answerable within the restrictions set forth in the help center.

comment How do I allow local IPv6 subnets in ufw?
Keep in mind there are no IPv6 "local ranges" - each IPv6 local range is going to be different all the time and there is no way to accept them all. You would need to add a UFW rule that would be for each individual subnet - if that subnet is always changing then you can't reliably create a firewall rule in any setup that can do what you're looking to accomplish.

comment Which ports do I need to forward for my ubuntu server?
Is this at a home network? If so, the 'static ip' is only internal - your public IP can always change. It also depends what you want your server to be doing - is it a web server? Media streaming server? What all are you doing on it? (Voting to close as Unclear until you provide clarifications)

comment Recover my user account after reinstalling Ubuntu
that retains the user's data, but there's other files which manage user passwords, group ownership, etc. which are more critical for keeping the user data itself

comment Recover my user account after reinstalling Ubuntu
your user data wasn't stored in /home - your actual user database and such is in a file that was likely on the root dir - therefore you still need to try and recover a file on the system - since it's on the / partition that may be a little tricky or impossible - you could always readd the user and do all the chown and such to reclaim owhership of the directory

comment Recover my user account after reinstalling Ubuntu
A reinstall overwrites data - if you did a reinstall and didn't salvage your /home/ directory via the liveusb your ability to recover is diminished.

comment Is it possible to retire packages that don't stand up to modern usability standards?
This document is the most useful one for you in this case. However, I don't believe that the reasoning you provide is usable. As well, you want to put a Trusty package into Precise - that won't happen, you would need a backport in this case, not a package removal/replace. They also don't truly 'remove' the package from the older releases. This is all at the discretion of the release team.

comment How would I network and share folders on VB-Win7 and Win 8 cpu using HomeGroup
The difficult part is that your VirtualBox machine is not directly connecting to the network - it is probably by default masquerading as your Ubuntu system's IP address. Therefore, your Windows guest won't be able to access the HomeGroup directly, and therefore you won't be able to easily discover it. There's ways to work around this, but they're not 100% guaranteed to work.

PXE boot is likely first in your BIOS / Boot Order - have you changed this yet? (Might show as Netowrk Boot or similar in your boot order screens)

comment Lubuntu14.10 file server not playing video files
"the staging release version of Ubuntu". Where's this statement from? Your assumptions or an actual Ubuntu/Canonical document?
