comment Unable to set static ip on ubuntu 14.10
Did you reboot? You'll have to restart after editing /etc/network/interfaces - network manager it'll just work after you remove and reconnect the ethernet interface.

Try not having the space between iface eth0 inet static and the address and other arguments. You can use spaces to indent, but that extra whitespace may break it. As well, you could always use Network Manager's GUI configuration for the ethernet connection.

Except they already have this above - they have an extra space between iface... and address, which might be the problem.

auto eth0 is valid here - it means its autoconfigured based on the next lines. The next line determines static vs. dhcp. IN a desktop setup, however, Network Manager dominates control instead of /etc/network/interfaces typically.

You'll need to configure the network IP to static for ethernet through the Network Manager GUI, then.

Is this a server or desktop install?

comment Apt-get holds back kernel images (generic, server and extra)
@Adeline you can't finish new kernel setup without a reboot - you can't load the new kernel except at boot time, hence it saying it needs a reboot to finish 'installing' the kernel so it can be used. Kernel updates always require a reboot but for a production environment you can ignore most kernel updates and apply them during regular maintenance periods.

@sy7 Unfortunately, you can't just make Wine work with the Windows install - it's very difficult to make it work that way.

comment Can I use Chrome's Pepper Flash with Firefox?
@BarafuAlbino You're still not right, even though Oli tried to say neither of us are. 11.2 is still 'supported' in the NPAPI version, and gets security updates, but that's probably going to go away within the next couple years. So, it's still 'unsupported' for latest Flash version.

@BarafuAlbino for ease of access, I posted the relevant section in the question itself, so you all can read it. You'll see why it's important if you read it.

@BarafuAlbino The Adobe Developer Roadmap and Focus document also explains this for Linux (link - go down to Personal Computers and Linux)

comment Can I use Chrome's Pepper Flash with Firefox?
@BarafuAlbino That's a misconception - it is actually Adobe who does not provide any Linux plugins EXCEPT to Chrome under special licensing. Pepper flash itself is only available for Lonux through chrome and special cases and is it provided freely-available by Adobe
