comment why wont my net book recognize that its wireless
@mchid that's not entirely true - some wireless adapters need proprietary drivers which aren't included because of licensing

comment Make gksu ask for password in terminal
You effectively don't. If you need to run it from root, you can, and then run a sudo chown later to change file ownership. gksu operates under the same logic as sudo does, as well, in that anything 'created' by the application will be done as the superuser root.

comment Wireshark Openflow support not working
true, however most users aren't going to compile software themselves (which is why I made a Wireshark PPA for my installing the newer Wireshark on older systems)

comment Wireshark Openflow support not working
Note that Ubuntu does not have Wireshark 1.12 any earlier than 14.10 (Utopic) - this will not work on earlier versions.

comment Where is the terminal in Ubuntu Phone?
@bodhi.zazen I think this qualifies as an answer. Not necessarily a good answer, but it is an answer. (It says they can install the terminal from the ubuntu store as an app, essentially.)

Are you absolutely certain they have a KVM setup which allows a kernel independent from the host kernel?

comment Ubuntu asks for password where none is set
INteresting tidbit: You actually do need to set a password for autologin and the system to operate correctly - since sudo actually asks you for a password it assumes you have one, and unlike the Live environment you don't have a "NOPASSWD" argument to not require the password when you sudo.

comment How to mount a samsung galaxy s5?
Use it as USB Media Mass Storage Device instead if there is such a setting available - in 14.04 MTP devices work better, but in 12.04 I've noticed issues (tested with a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4, but same concept that MTP and USB media storage are handled differently)

comment uname -a gives a wrong kernel version
Is this server a VPS? If so, does the host use OpenVZ as the method of virtualization? (We need more information on the type of server, how it was installed/setup, etc.)

comment Where is the OTHER Wesnoth data stored?
Try using this on the Terminal: cd $HOME; find . -type d -name "*wesnoth*" See if it gives you any directories that have 'wesnoth' in the name.

comment Can I call a .cpp program in Bash?
This is not a good thing - this will compile the program each and every time. Unless you need that you should remove the g++ line.

comment Ubuntu isn't using 4-cores
Note: This is a similar case with my system - Intel Core i7-3632QM (Laptop CPU) @ 2.20GHz - configuration: cores=4 enabledcores=4 threads=8 - htop shows '8' CPUs, but it's really 4 cores with hyperthreading, and 8 is just the illusion (4 cores, 2 threads each). So this isn't abnormal. :) (just supporting your answer, kos)
