comment Ubuntu/Xubuntu install crashes when trying to add partition [SOLVED]
At first glance it looks like the installer isn't recognizing the drive, but fdisk seems to disagree with that...

comment Ubuntu/Xubuntu install crashes when trying to add partition [SOLVED]
Can you open a terminal from the live usb and run this command and paste the output into your question as an edit: sudo fdisk -l

comment Can't SSH in as root
It is, by the way, bad practice to allow root login anyways via SSH or via the GUI, you should only ever need root login in cases where sudo is disabled.

comment Removing a primary Swap partition and hibernation (working in OpenSuse but not Ubuntu 14.04)
His edit was reviewed and approved. His revision makes the title more succinct. It's already assumed you're making a question when you post on Ask Ubuntu, as it's a Question/Answer site, not a forum, so there's no need for "A question on" in the title.

comment How to get back the “Find applications online” option?
@gauravs for the record, you need higher rep to add images. Over time you'll gain that reputation with good questions and answers. I've edited in the screenshot so it renders as an image instead of as a link, in the meantime.

comment Downgrade to PHP 5.4 on Ubuntu 14.04
You'll likely have to grab php 5.4 packages from the older repositories and manually install them, or build/install PHP 5.4 from source code. There's no PHP 5.4 packages (even in PPAs) that are for 14.04

comment How to Unlock Maxtor Blackarmor Portable hard drive disk
The launcher is a .exe file built for windows, so I'm not sure your solution here will work.

comment Compile error: checking for libXaw… configure: error: No X toolkit could be found
I have my own viewpoints and opinions on why they didn't see it, but I'll keep that to myself to stay within the policies here. Having said this, the bold may be good to make points important, but it isn't pretty NOR easy to read.

comment Compile error: checking for libXaw… configure: error: No X toolkit could be found
Bold is nice, but it's kinda hard to read, even IF you're trying to make points of it more important. (This is why I had said read the sections marked with asterisks, in my edit.)

comment Issues with `bandwidthd` when installing `build-essential`
VMWare Workstation isn't free. Is there a reason you want to use VMware Workstation instead of VirtualBox for virtualization? (VirtualBox is an Oracle product, but is free, compared to VMware which is about $250 for a Workstation license)

comment Problems with tor ppa
This doesn't fix the issue as it will still cause a package conflict that will not be recoverable ever.

comment How do I set up a python development environment?
If 2.x isn't available on the version of Ubuntu you are on you'll have to use either a PPA with an older version or compile the older version yourself. There's no guarantee the IDEs will install a version of Python either so you should always check and install a version to use yourself.

comment How to install g++ compiler?
@enedil yes I did, however just installing g++ may omit dependent libraries you'll need for compilation of programs. Have you actually read my comment stating that the commands in the answer are correct if they don't want the other build libraries?

comment Terminal not returning anything when I try to install a .bin file?
@MarlinBates does the guide for installation from them indicate that there's supposed to be some kind of output?

Issues with Minecraft mods are not necessarily on-topic for this site, as it's not related to Ubuntu.

comment A few beginner questions
You've got multiple questions being asked in one question, that's not good form here, typically it's one question, one answer. Per post.

comment dig +trace returns my DNS IP
There probably are not any issues with your DNS setup, I think Ubuntu comes with a DNS cacher by default to cache DNS lookups. Not certain about that though.

comment Easiest way to setup Ubuntu as a VPN server
@Jamie 'sudo ufw allow 443', 'sudo ufw allow 80' (HTTPS and HTTP respectively). ufw will lock ports unless you tell it which ones you want. (you should just ping me in chat next time btw)
