comment How to open the ports on firewall in Ubuntu?
We need more information. What device are you trying to access, where does it reside, and where does the device you're using ot try and access the system that is running Uubntu reside in relation to the Ubuntu system?

comment No confirmation prompts when deleting a file or a directory
Also note that 12.10 is End of Life, and you should probably upgrade to something that still receives updates and security fixes.

comment Downgrade Java 1.7 to Java 1.5
Beware the security risk here - 1.5 is ancient and has a TON of vulnerabilities that can be exploited...

comment Ubuntu 14.04 game problems
@Philebbs Spelling and grammar checking usually helps. Having said this, what you're describing is kinda vague and not really easy to be able to track down what exactly's going on. These games don't keep any kind of startup logs do they?

comment I need advice on partition sizing/placement, please
To clarify, you want to shrink sda5 (your linux partition), expand your swap, and create another partition for everything else you might want to store?

comment Postfix not sending mail, returning “Network is Unreachable”
Network is unreachable is the key error in Postfix. Something's up with your networking, in that it can't reach the internet, or resolve the connection to that IP (it's possible they've blacklisted your IP from sending to them, but it's ultimately a networking issue). Just a pointer in what direction you need to look for the problem is all. (It doesn't look like a PHP problem since the error is a postfix "can't reach network" error)

Also, if you entered a password a while ago, it caches for some time.

comment Trying to Compile Latest OpenSSL from Source Fails With Errors
@AK_ please read my answer. Note that the Security Team for Ubuntu already pushed the patch for the vulnerability to all supported releases of Ubuntu, including 14.04, and there is no need to install the latest OpenSSL just to get the patch.

comment What is the easiest way to enable PHP on nginx?
@Powerlord You're right it's a problem, one that can be fixed by changing the documentation in the default config file. See this bug that I created on this issue. I haven't had a chance to propose a bugfix yet.

comment How do I resolve webpage encoding issues when using a proxy?
There is no default web proxy server for Ubuntu, at least not on normal installations. On a network you might be forced to use a proxy, though. Have you checked your Firefox configurations and configs on your other browsers to see whether they're even being assigned a proxy?

comment What is the easiest way to enable PHP on nginx?
@Powerlord the NGINX default setup has both lines and explains the difference between the two, rather than having to change how PHP runs you can just change the config line in NGINX faster, and all works.

comment Vim Syntax Highlighting Question
There is no one .conf syntax, because it differs by program a lot of times. If you open in GEdit, or anything else which has syntax highlighting, unless there's a line at the beginning saying #!/bin/something or something which defines the syntax language, they usually don't highlight on .conf files. I just tested by doing vim znc.conf on my ZNC config file, and vim nginx.conf on my nginx conf file and there's 0 syntax highlighting, maybe you have a line at the beginning of the specific conf files that dictates the language/syntax to highlight with?

comment Vim Syntax Highlighting Question
.txt is a plaintext file. And so is a .conf. What makes you think that there's supposed to be highlighting on those?

comment How to get “Don't Starve” game to work from its .rar file?
Note to close voters and reviewers: If you close this as a duplicate, make sure that the duplicate post addresses dealing with RAR files. This is an instance where posts about handling .tar files will not work, as it specifically needs unrar.

comment How to get “Don't Starve” game to work from its .rar file?
@tattyfishpickle that means you either have synaptic open, you have Update Manager running, you have Software Center running, or you didn't use sudo when you used the apt-get command.

comment Would someone plese tell what section this is that I have outlined in red
We don't know the "name of the section" unless you show us what section you have outlined. We have no images from you for this, or anything else to identify the specific section that you're looking at.

Unclear, much? We have no details of the "section" you're outlining. New users can't add images, so if you put the link to the image in the post someone with edit privs can edit in the picture

comment UFW is DENY/DENY, but PACKETS are still getting out of my ethernet device. Why is this?
You realize ARP is kinda necessary on networks that have both static and DHCP devices right? It kinda helps prevent IP collisions and helps domain controller devices and routers know what system has which IP(s) for routing purposes.
