comment Error installing Elementary os Luna (Ubuntu based) on iMac
Also, please be aware: Your previous question here was closed for the same reason - please do not post Elementary OS questions here because they are indeed offtopic.

comment Error installing Elementary os Luna (Ubuntu based) on iMac
Elementary OS is not a supported variant of Ubuntu. It is offtopic on this site, and you should instead use Unix and Linux for assistance with it.

comment how to install virtual machine on ubuntu 13.10 (base machine)?
13.10 is End of Life. Questions relating to 13.10 that are not related to upgrading from 13.10 to a supported release are off topic.

comment How can I re `./configure` on a package installed via `apt-get`?
@user4166144 correct - you would have to manually update every release if you have a custom binary with custom changes.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 Vulnerable to Shellshock?
@dli note that a simple sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade will fix this on installed OSes - however as muru states the ISOs are not updated themselves, so only updating your system with apt-get or Update Manager (if GUI) will fix it on actual installs.

comment Install old software versions (such as Firefox 22) in Ubuntu
@Daniele I've updated my answer to include instructions for Firefox, but I have not tested them, and there is NO GUARANTEE that Update Manager and apt-get will not try and make you upgrade the version later. The instructions are solely for Firefox, as it is impossible to provide instructions for every piece of software.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 Vulnerable to Shellshock?
Did you run sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade yet? The last time I checked with the Ubuntu Security Team there were no unfixed Shellshock issues...

comment Ubuntu Server booting with NGINX running and not Apache2
@ChrisJamesChampeau You're welcome. Next time, might I recommend not using the nginx package but rather, say, the nginx-full package instead if you're setting up nginx? It'll still isntall the binaries, but it'll be a more full core featureset, and will not cause the confusion you've seen before.

comment Ubuntu Server booting with NGINX running and not Apache2
@ChrisJamesChampeau if you did that, webmin is set up to use Apache only, in its binaries. That always causes a problem, as webmin isn't just PHP, and is a whole other issue. That, and webmin works with Apache more than it does nginx. HOwever, the above instructions will nuke nginx completely. It will not remove the configuration files but it will remove the binaries.

Note that I help maintain the nginx package, so I'm VERY familiar with this issue cropping up.

comment Install old software versions (such as Firefox 22) in Ubuntu
@Daniele um... what? Since Precise, there's amd64 and i386 builds - I asked you what is the architecture of the VM. I did not ask you to make a supposition regarding whether Firefox 22 has only 32bit binaries or 64bit binaries. (Both exist)

per my below comments on my answer, I need to know which architecture your computer is, at least for Firefox.

comment Install old software versions (such as Firefox 22) in Ubuntu
@Daniele I kind of needed to know so I could get as close to the version you're on as I can with the older software and links... the problem here is that the varying older versions of Ubuntu all have varying build-depends, hence my trying to find out the specifics... at the very least I need to know the architecture of the VM - 32bit? 64bit?

comment Running Ubuntu 14.04 lts only folders I can access is in the home folder and all others I am denied access. how can I fix this?
NEVER do chmod 777. This case of this user is /var/www, or some directory outside of their /home/ such as another user's home or a system folder. Running chmod 777 on ANY of those directories or those files is dangerous and opens you to security risks.

comment Installed Office 2007 in Wine, How to Run Them?
I do not comment on adding the shortcuts to them because I do not know the logical way to reliably add shortcuts or methods to execute them.

Maury, OK, that's 14.10, not 14.04. I'm going to tweak your question and then answer.
