comment Print again the last printed paper using command line
Note though that it is possible you no longer have the print job in the spool anywhere so this may not work.

Glad to hear it! I've moved my comments into an answer so you can accept it as the valid answer and mark the question as 'solved'.

comment Not able to 'unset' environmental variable permanently - UBUNTU
First you have to figure out where you set that variable in the first place. Do you know where you set it before? Simply setting it in the terminal is not enough to make a 'permanent' env variable

comment Warface EU on ubuntu
Note that some games also just do not work with PoL or Wine, and that the Wine AppDB should be checked for any test results on that given game to see if it works or not.

comment My lap restarts when i close the lid?
It's unclear what you mean by "shutdown" and "restart". What steps did you take to 'shut down', and what do you mean when you say 'restart'? What computer are you using this on as well?

comment I have a Dell Inspiron 15 3543 with Ubuntu 15.04 as dual boot but wi-fi doesn't work and it doesn't detect the mobile broadband
Use the "Hardware Drivers" tool to check for any proprietary drivers you may need as well. Broadcom cards don't work until you obtain extra drivers sometimes, and some mobile broadband cards don't work.

comment How to execute a program from symlink
@Tim he can achieve the same with a symlink, and won't need a bash alias to execute (you can create symlinks with different names on the link, and it'll execute the actual thing it's linked to)

comment Upadating of packages after installation of new program
@MnPr4UB However, as A.B. said, if you are only installing software you don't typically need the command every time. Routinely run apt-get update and apt-get upgrade to get bugfixes and such though.

comment Upadating of packages after installation of new program
@MnPr4UB it depends. You need to do apt-get update and apt-get upgrade routinely after installation to get bugfixes, new versions, etc. However, the most often case of needing to run apt-get update is after adding a new source to /etc/apt/sources.list or /etc/apt/sources.list.d/. The packaging system has no idea what packages are available in the new source location until you run it. You then typically run an install command to install from that new source, and sudo apt-get update later to get updates from that source, or to 'forget' the source if you removed it.
