comment Clonezilla - if I need Live DVD, why bother installing?
So... you're looking to take a live image, then, basically, of your system? (ext partitions don't like that)

comment Get the next release code name via command line
This only works if the release codename is decided upon and daily builds enabled (so immediately after Wily is released this may break until X is announced)

comment How to use sudo from a standard user?
@TomasPeceny Hibernate doesn't work in all systems. And I believe that's why they disable it. You have to add your own user to the sudo group then execute with sudo. Or use pkexec.

comment How to use sudo from a standard user?
@TomasPeceny yes, but at that point the user becomes a privileged user, and not a standard user. Add the unprivileged user to the sudo group, and they'll have sudo access (usermod -a -G sudo nosudo is the command, where nosudo is the non-sudoers user from above). Then, nosudo user should log out and log back in, thereby refreshing their groups membership. (HOWEVER, while this would do what you achieve and give sudo access to the nosudo user, pkexec would be a better option if you want to keep nosudo as an unprivileged user)

comment How to use sudo from a standard user?
Is this implemented on all currently supported Ubuntus or only a certain version and later? (Because that's relevant, if only 'cause it's tagged 12.04)

comment How to use sudo from a standard user?
Note that this does not solve the problem of you not being in sudoers. Also consider that it's probably that way for a reason, so you should reconsider the ramifications of going about this method.

comment Eth0 lost when ethernet is using crossed cable
From a technical perspective, if OP's computer can't negotiate data over a crossover cable, I"m not sure connecting a hub or switch between the computer and the Ethernet device it's connected to will solve the issue.

Readability is key - don't lump everything in one wall of text. Also grammar is helpful.

comment How to redirect all internet traffic to SSH tunnel?
Well, VPN gives you a separate IP address in the VPN. That then becomes the 'default route' for traffic (see ip route for a full list of IP interfaces, and look for a line like this: default via 192.168.250.5 dev tun0 proto static). An SSH tunnel isn't a 'route' per se, as it's not 'configured' to work as a VPN route.

comment USB Gaming mouse not working
You already know what you need to do - you need to compile the driver into the kernel, and change some settings to make your mouse work. You've already done the research and know what you need to do next. So I fail to see what else can be provided for 'helping' you here... usually there's installation guides for drivers somewhere for those drivers.

I... don't see what you're asking. What exactly is your question?
