comment libMagicWand.so.5 cannot open shared object file?
@NikitaLuparev keep in mind that libMagicWand.so.5 and libMagickWand.so.5 are different. Either you should install the official emacs package or recompile it yourself (since libMagicWand.so.5 does not actually exist in Vivid)

comment Creating Your Own Mount Point for USB Drive
missed that. sorry. It should stay but it's still a good form to make a note that you should make sure the mount point exists yet. In fact if you change /bin/sh to /bin/bash we can add in some error check code but meh

comment How Do I Fix This Boot Issue
Did you actually switch to Kubuntu, or are you still working with Elementary OS? Because Elementary OS in any way shape or form is offtopic here, and the Kubuntu theme is just the theme - not actually Ubuntu/Kubuntu.

comment How to manage/preserve file privileges during an online file transfer?
@heemayl doh, forgot about that, however, we can't always be certain the shell script is a bash script - there are other shell languages, such as zsh. Added it anyways, though.

comment okay to install the latest kernel for Vivid on Trusty?
Trusty is 14.04, not 12.04. Precise is 12.04. Please confirm which one you're talking about as the system you want to put 4.0 on/

comment Applications are killed during shutdown
@alexy13 By being careful next time, you can avoid the problem. The big issue is that there's no way to have VirtualBox on its own inform the system there's unfinished work. That functionality doesn't exist.

comment Configure Linux Text mode Size (Rows and Columns)
The "size" seen there is probably controlled by the application to fit into a standard size terminal window in the GUI of 80x24. It's probably hard-coded as such.

comment package names of below libraries to do sudo apt-get
Those are already package names... zlib is its own package, so is freetype. The .i386 indicates the architecture - 32-bit. INstall the package with name:i386 instead. If any return "Not Found" or similar then we can look at it.

comment How to setup minimalistic log file monitoring for one computer?
There is a Software Recommendations stack exchange where this may be more suitable. Most software recommendation will otherwise be highly opinion based or insanely broad for the scope of this site.

comment SSH connection refused from specific location only
@GeirK.H. I missed that your server sees the connection but rejects. Have the girlfriend see if putty or whatever they use can turn on verbose logging and if she can provide the logs - that will say what from the client side if anything triggered it - say invalid passwords or password mangling or the ssh keys going missing or something. It's also still a case of workplace policy - SSH may be allowed internally to the net but ultimately rejected going outbound.

comment GCC Fatal Error
gcc gives it +x by default, I thought... at least in 14.04 and later.

comment 'iptables -S' to be accessed by www-data
I would be extremely careful giving www-data access to execute iptables commands - typically you would NOT give anything web-facing access to iptables because of the infinite security risks that you could open yourself to with web-facing scripts editing iptables stuff.

comment SSH connection refused from specific location only
NOTE: Most sane network security policies block all traffic outboudn on nonstandard ports (some restrict to only HTTP/HTTPS through a webgateway and reject other connections going outbound)

comment SSH connection refused from specific location only
FOR NO SANE REASON SHOULD YOU PUT YOUR SSH CONSOLE ONTO PORT 80! There will be MASSIVE MASSIVE MASSIVE security risks by doing this.

comment opposite of eject command?
@j0h also note that some drives don't have the ability to close themselves (laptop style drives for instance - there are desktops that have them, too.)

comment How to prevent a Bluetooth headset to autoconnect without disabling Bluetooth?
The question becomes then which is initiating the connection - the computer, or the headset. In the case of me, it's the bluetooth earbuds I have, but I don't think there's a way to disable it as the earbuds (read as a headset by Ubuntu) triggers the connection.

comment Why am I getting a syntax error in this script?
@EliahKagan I disagree since this is a generic coding question. Whie on topic here, it's still extremely extremely 'generic'

comment Why am I getting a syntax error in this script?
I don't see a question here. I also don't see how this is an Ubuntu issue, as it's a pure generic coding question and belongs on Stack Overflow, not here.
