comment How to create barcode in Ubuntu via a GUI?
If you upvote this answer, please also upvote mark kirby's answer to this question as well as I only extracted a tidbit from his answer, and he did all the research (and deserves all the credit)

@Maythux why not accept this answer here? Since it is the one that pointed to zint

@Maythux follow it's build and install guides. When done, run zint-qt from either Alt+F2 or the command line with an & at the end (to fork it to the background)

@Maythux um... Zint has a GUI you just need the qt4 libraries present at compile time

comment creating a deb package to install extension
I think you will need a script, not a whole package, to achieve this, unless there's a reason you want to make this into a package?

comment Driver aziokbd < (>) key not detected
You are using Debian, not Ubuntu. Drivers for different distributions are NOT guaranteed to work. Also, since you're using Debian, this is offtopic here.

comment How can I symlink a subdirectory of /usr/share/ca-certificates?
@blz I meant temporarily, to see if that is the case, not as a long term solution

Try copying the directory in directly? It may be a case that the symlinks aren't followed

comment bitcoin core program disappears after is done loading
This sounds like you're on Windows. Or are you using Wine? (There's already an Ubuntu PPA for Bitcoin you might want to use instead of trying to make it work on Wine)

comment Clonezilla - if I need Live DVD, why bother installing?
So... you're looking to take a live image, then, basically, of your system? (ext partitions don't like that)

comment Get the next release code name via command line
This only works if the release codename is decided upon and daily builds enabled (so immediately after Wily is released this may break until X is announced)

comment How to use sudo from a standard user?
@TomasPeceny Hibernate doesn't work in all systems. And I believe that's why they disable it. You have to add your own user to the sudo group then execute with sudo. Or use pkexec.

comment How to use sudo from a standard user?
@TomasPeceny yes, but at that point the user becomes a privileged user, and not a standard user. Add the unprivileged user to the sudo group, and they'll have sudo access (usermod -a -G sudo nosudo is the command, where nosudo is the non-sudoers user from above). Then, nosudo user should log out and log back in, thereby refreshing their groups membership. (HOWEVER, while this would do what you achieve and give sudo access to the nosudo user, pkexec would be a better option if you want to keep nosudo as an unprivileged user)

comment How to use sudo from a standard user?
Is this implemented on all currently supported Ubuntus or only a certain version and later? (Because that's relevant, if only 'cause it's tagged 12.04)

comment How to use sudo from a standard user?
Note that this does not solve the problem of you not being in sudoers. Also consider that it's probably that way for a reason, so you should reconsider the ramifications of going about this method.

comment Eth0 lost when ethernet is using crossed cable
From a technical perspective, if OP's computer can't negotiate data over a crossover cable, I"m not sure connecting a hub or switch between the computer and the Ethernet device it's connected to will solve the issue.

Readability is key - don't lump everything in one wall of text. Also grammar is helpful.
