comment Define specific internet routing with Network Manager
@chili555 it breaks Network Manager handling of the connection - in which different wifi networks I have different DNS servers

comment Define specific internet routing with Network Manager
@ElderGeek Perhaps a wider range question: Is there a way with command line tools and network manager negotiating the connection parameters (DHCP, etc.) to define the ethernet interface for the default route? (The other consideration is, I use VPN sometimes, so... adds to the complication)

@ElderGeek Impossible when you are using multiple wifi networks as one might in a laptop - hence the question here

comment Define specific internet routing with Network Manager
@chili555 that breaks DHCP and the settings for multiple wifi networks in NetworkManager in a GUI setup. If it's not possible, then we need to yell at Ubuntu for failing in this regard.

comment Sites and Accessing Pages is Blocked on Work Network by opends, can I bypass it?
@belayneh don't forget to mark this as an answer so the question is considered closed.

comment Sites and Accessing Pages is Blocked on Work Network by opends, can I bypass it?
@belayneh If the network is set up like I think it is, the web traffic goes through some kind of web gateway, and if you try and go right out to the internet without the web gateway / proxy / (whatever they have on the network to filter traffic), you'll get a "DENY" from a firewall, and probably have IT come visiting you. As well, it's a policy issue in the workplace - you shouldn't be bypassing network restrictions which are put in place as a matter of policy because if you do that enough you could get fired or worse. So no, there's no way to bypass it without legal hell getting you fired.

Seeing how you tagged this as 'mac', are you actually on Ubuntu, or a Mac OS? (trying to determine relevance to this site)

comment Netbook Linux OS Questions
this site doesn't rely on "opinions" - you need to load and test it via a Live USB yourself - that's the point, we can't physically know. You would have to try it. Even with the same model you will have varying specs among them. It is too broad and opinion based which is against the site restrictions.

comment APT way to get Adobe Flash Player latest version for Linux not working
@Toroidal not forever though - only for 5 years from when they discontinued Linux support. And that's coming up sooner than you think. (Details in the Adobe Roadmap page for Flash)

comment APT way to get Adobe Flash Player latest version for Linux not working
Keep in mind the 'latest version of flash' for non-Chrome browsers on Linux was 11.x. There is no new support for Linux Flash Player except via Pepper Flash on Chrome.

comment Computer “burns” from linux
Hard disk making noise is common with any OS - you can't judge that as a problem unless it sounds like its breaking. Downloading from the Ubuntu Software Center could be different. Here's what we know: Your system runs hotter. You 'can't download anything'. You aren't being clear with what exactly you're asking, and on top of that you ask multiple questions (why is it hotter, can i disable touchpad, and in comments can i disable the unity sidebar). This makes the question too broad and unclear what you're asking.

comment Netbook Linux OS Questions
You're asking 5 questions, of which most are opinion based. This is both too broad AND against the rules because answers must be from facts and not guesses or opinion.

comment Computer “burns” from linux
@SamuelShifterovich well, that can't be disabled, because that's a key part of Unity. If you think it's Unity's fault that you're having this, you might need to install a different release or instal the MATE desktop environment per the link you mentioned. However, Wubi is probably a bad way to go with this.

comment is ubuntu compatible with hp Notebook 15
"Ubuntu Desktop" is the flavor of Ubuntu - NOT the architecture. You're asking if Ubuntu works with an HP Notebook. Those vary model to model within their 15 series. The only way to answer is to research it yourself and compare their specs to the system requirements for each flavor of Ubuntu. ("Desktop" just means it has a GUI, and some tweaks for Desktops/Laptops instead of servers). Otherwise, this question cannot be answered with fact here and gets closed as "Opinion Based" instead of being answerable within the restrictions set forth in the help center.

comment How do I allow local IPv6 subnets in ufw?
Keep in mind there are no IPv6 "local ranges" - each IPv6 local range is going to be different all the time and there is no way to accept them all. You would need to add a UFW rule that would be for each individual subnet - if that subnet is always changing then you can't reliably create a firewall rule in any setup that can do what you're looking to accomplish.

comment Which ports do I need to forward for my ubuntu server?
Is this at a home network? If so, the 'static ip' is only internal - your public IP can always change. It also depends what you want your server to be doing - is it a web server? Media streaming server? What all are you doing on it? (Voting to close as Unclear until you provide clarifications)

comment Recover my user account after reinstalling Ubuntu
that retains the user's data, but there's other files which manage user passwords, group ownership, etc. which are more critical for keeping the user data itself
