That doesn't sound like a kernel problem...

NEVER use the Windows drivers for a *nix system.

comment Facing one issue while starting ubuntu 14.04
Which 'error' are you referring to there? There's a lot of output and unless you're specific theres no way to help figure this out.

comment installing the canonical version of openstack
Have you confirmed that eth0 actually can get out to the internet? "No route to host" suggests networking isn't actually set up or isn't functioning or isn't able to reach out to the net.

comment How to update Ubuntu (and the kernel) without updating Grub's configuration
@GiacomoAlessandroni you may want to wait a couple of days, I'm not as familiar with grub, but my understanding is as my answer states.

comment Cannot find Network Controller in lspci
VMs will NEVER see the same hardware as the host machine. They won't see the Wireless Network Controller from the Host, nor will they see the host's Ethernet controller. You still have to connect to the Internet on the specific Wifi or Ethernet network you want to use on your host system (whatever is running VirtualBox) and then bridge your Ubuntu VM's virtual network cards to that device to use that network (or use NAT setup)

comment Can no longer Connect to Router via Wireless
The wireless 'card' can't be tampered with physically when remotely involved. If you are having this issue on the installed system as well as the Live environment I'd look into whether the card is dying - try and replace that card or use a separate wifi adapter and test?

comment Ubuntu keeps asking for Wifi password
@user20842454566 This happens to me when the campus network here is over saturated and the access point fails to handle all the connections (and we have individual student logins via 802.11x) - is it possible that's what's going on? (Usually clears up for me within 30 minutes)

comment Mullvad VPN (openvpn) keeps disconnecting / reconnecting (14.04)
@HontváriLevente There is a data leak in OpenVPN in that it sometimes leaks DNS - I think that's already on their radar. And there are ways to crash OpenVPN if you aren't careful (never consider software 100% stable)

There are too many potential answers here. (However, the only one with a true scriptable API is Bitcoin core)

comment Command line Bitcoin tool crashing when run
@GrigoriRasputin we need more than just 'it crashes'. Check the ~/.bitcoin/debug.log file (or the debug file if its in another directory inside your Bitcoin data dir) and see what errors lead up to the crash. Provide some of that data here (especially right before it crashes) as an edit to your question.

comment Mullvad VPN (openvpn) keeps disconnecting / reconnecting (14.04)
I don't see anything really in those logs suggesting it's something we can fix, and I've heard mullvad's OpenVPN isn't the most stable - have you actually checked with mullvad to see if their systems are operating as they should?

comment Is it legal to use Ubuntu name for my cybercafé?
@Seth this is not a trademark law forum - we have given those answers and the OP refuses that acknowledgement - in either case the OP needs to reach out to Canonical's legal division.

comment Is it legal to use Ubuntu name for my cybercafé?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because you are asking a question that cannot be answered by the community. You must reach out to Canonical's legal division to discuss it with them, as you are likely violating the trademark of "Ubuntu" in your proposed use case.

comment Is it legal to use Ubuntu name for my cybercafé?
@UtnapishtimLinux We can't speak for Canonical, who holds the trademark. You need to contact their legal team on this issue, we can only point you to their terms and policies. As Wilf stated, the terms of use state that you need Canoncal's permission to use UBUNTU or BUNTU (similar enough to the trademark) for any kind of thing that could infringe the trademark, including calling your cybercafe "Ubuntu Club", as "Ubuntu" is a trademark already, and using it as part of the trademark of your establishment violates trademark laws.

comment Files missing in /mnt/hgfs on Ubuntu VM?
Did you restart the virtual machine afterwards, and make sure that Shared Folders are enabled in the VM's settings?

comment Files missing in /mnt/hgfs on Ubuntu VM?
You still have to run the mount command from the documentation (pubs.vmware.com/workstation-9/…) mount -t vmhgfs .host:/ /mnt/hgfs will work, but create the shares directory first, and run it. It should work then.

Which Ubuntu 14? There's two, 14.04 and 14.10. When you ask a question or answer a question regarding which version of Ubuntu you are using, include the full version number.
