comment How add a classic start menu in Ubuntu 15?
What do you mean by "Classic Start Menu", do you mean the old style menus like before Unity?

comment GPA Seahorse won't recognize key id's
I think you need to pass -k KEYID not just KeyID, when on the command line, or a similar command, I don't have the manpage here right now...

Add your edit about solving this as an answer instead.

comment Ubuntu One like service or location
@elopio Thats still not an Ubuntu-run thing - the question asks "is any new location or service being provided by Ubuntu for backup", which means that my answer stands that there's no ubuntu provided solutoin for this, and anything that could do it is third-party.

comment “Shockwave Flash is known to be vulnerable” warning
@PaddyLandau I believe there is a guide somewhere to get Pepper Flash working in Chromium, or even a package to do that, however don't quote me on that as I don't use Chromium so I can't attest to it.

comment How to prevent dput from uploading *.orig.tar.gz again?
Note that it's quite possible ~/.devscripts has the option -sa passed to debuild, which of course forces source upload, and it's bad to have that in there...

comment What does this error means?
That's a warning. It's not typically a critical software failure.

comment ffmpeg over https fails
ehh, 14.04 is... old enough that I think ffmpeg was broken... I'll poke at this and see if I can make it build as is in 15.04 and later... later, around my work break.

Include the full error output from apt-get, or the entire apt-get output that shows you that error.

comment Ubuntu server 14.04 Webmin installed
Keep in mind registrars might force you to a 2-name server setup - to provide a level of failover. 1&1, Gandi.net, and godaddy are examples of such registrars who complain...

comment Why do I get a “???” error when I try to install Ubuntu 15.04 64-bit?
Just put the URL to your images in, rather than adding as an image. That way we can just easily put the image in place (those of us with edit powers)

comment Nmap Logs Question
Funny thing about zenmap which you say below. It's not always as reliable as the nmap tool being called from the command line. Call your same command directly from the command line with nmap and not zenmap and see if you get different output.

comment How to find the built-in bluetooth adapter in Toshiba satellite c55-896 laptop
Um... I have a question: Are you absolutely heart-set on a Bluetooth wireless mouse? If you have a spare USB port, a Logitech wireless mouse (with one of their Unifying Receivers, so it's not Bluetooth) would give you the ability to have a wireless mouse. It'd also probably be a little cheaper than a Bluetooth mouse, but still be wireless. (It also prevents you from having to buy a new laptop)

Please update your answer, Wilf, to include the fact there is an update now available which is OK by Firefox. (Not necessarily the world at large, but Firefox at least)

comment php5.3.29 on Ubuntu 14.04
ALso, you need to make sure that you include relevant points of links in your answers - rather than just post the links - to make a good answer.

comment php5.3.29 on Ubuntu 14.04
He's asking for the older PHP 5.3 packages, not just how to set up a LEMP stack.
