comment I need help resurrecting an old Asus Eee PC that already has Ubuntu
@user68186 Actually recovering is easier than downloading the image, burning it, booting, reinstalling, waiting for software to install, then manually reinstalling all the programs they want/need.

@user68186 That's not really a valid answer, as it is possible to recover the system.

comment udev rules to allow only one vendor and model USB drive but no others
True, but we only have a small handful of power users who have administrative access anyways, and none of them are of a concern for these systems. They're basically research systems and we want to block other drives in the sense that the GUI doesn't automount it and such.

I did a test with a USB mouse and keyboard lying around here via a VM, and was able to use those devices easily. As far as I can see this works. :)

comment how to delete temp files which is created by google chrome in linux?
Why wouldn't you just use Chrome's "Delete" functions to achieve this? Is there a reason you don't want to use that deletion function which lets you select what to destroy?

Is there a way to restrict only USB storage devices in this manner (USB mice will apparently need to work on the next systems we get to replace the aging equipment in use now).

@kiranbbnl That is a completely separate question and answer combo, I'd ask that as a separate question.

comment Windows 7 - VirtualBox - OpenVPN - Ubuntu 12.04
@solsTiCe I don't know if we can or not, the specifics of their netowrking requirements/topology are ambiguous. Their comment is such that "I need that Ubuntu has internet" and "can conect to the VPN using VBox adapters installed in Windows". It's still ambiguous what they want to actually achieve either way, and there's several ways to attack the issue at hand. Ideally they need to provide much more details about the restrictions on the network and such, permissions on the VPN (can it pass through to the INet directly or not), etc. before we can truly answer them.

comment Windows 7 - VirtualBox - OpenVPN - Ubuntu 12.04
Follow-up: Per their comment above, they want both VPN routed and Direct-To-Network setups, which makes it even harder for them to achieve.

Assuming they want data to go out via OpenVPN - if they want something different such as one to the Internet direct and one to OpenVPN it won't work. (but the NAT one will work as you state here)

Do you need Ubuntu to route over the VPN as well, or do you want that to instead route right out to the Internet instead of going over the VPN?

Not actually a PPA question, not a Debian question.
