comment Can I call a .cpp program in Bash?
This is not a good thing - this will compile the program each and every time. Unless you need that you should remove the g++ line.

comment Ubuntu isn't using 4-cores
Note: This is a similar case with my system - Intel Core i7-3632QM (Laptop CPU) @ 2.20GHz - configuration: cores=4 enabledcores=4 threads=8 - htop shows '8' CPUs, but it's really 4 cores with hyperthreading, and 8 is just the illusion (4 cores, 2 threads each). So this isn't abnormal. :) (just supporting your answer, kos)

comment telnet://IP from Firefox and Chrome
@NovelliNorbert And the web interface uses telnet? How old are these switches? What brand/model? And why don't you keep documentation on hostnames/IPs like you should be doing?

comment drive set up? sorry I need help
This is very broad a question, you need to be more specific with what you're asking and what you're attempting to achieve.

comment Input/output error on /etc/shadow
@TameHog that's not a concern at the moment. The owner of the answer gets a notice about the edit request, since I'm actually ONLINE you can propose the edit; whether it's accepted is determined by the rules and guidelines for editing. Since I"m the owner of the question and I basically just quoted you, and you never provided any additional arguments above in your edit, I did a pretty much verbatim copy/paste. As well, all < 2k users have the risk of edits being disapproved - until you edit and propose the edit nobody can say whether it's good or not, and you can see why it was rejected too.

comment Input/output error on /etc/shadow
@TameHog There should be an 'edit' button you can click and can propose edits yourself.

comment Input/output error on /etc/shadow
NOTE: A fsck won't always solve an Input/Output problem - you should always look into what could cause this to make sure that there's nothing else MORE broken.

comment telnet://IP from Firefox and Chrome
@Seth updated to include that it's supposed to be installed by default (I checked the manifest of the images, just to confirm) but if it says it's not then you have the command there to install it.

The errors should probably not be happening in the first place - ignoring the errors is a bad thing.

comment Installing d-note application on ubuntu
Jacob: What's the error say in the actual error log itself, it likely explains more about the 500 than just a 500 error.

@Helio No, this isn't just a 'serverfault' question - we field Ubuntu Server questions here as well.

comment telnet://IP from Firefox and Chrome
Why wouldn't you just 'telnet' with the command line?

comment Why `sudo apt-get install XXXX` sometimes request confirmation, others not?
@Toroidal changing the program's code is a little bit outside the scope here - you might have to dig into apt or apt-get's manpages to figure out how to change preferences, as it's possible there's already a setting you can change to force it.

comment How to allocate more space to Lubuntu
What Wubi does is it installs a file in the Windows root for the 'Ubuntu' operating system. If you haven't actually changed the partitions on your hard drive itself, and used Wubi to install, you aren't dual booting in a true manner, you're "Wubi Booting" which is a 'hackish' way to keep Windows and just load Ubuntu from its partition (which is slow)

comment How to allocate more space to Lubuntu
Wubi is not a dual boot. Did you use Wubi for installing, or did you actually repartition your computer to make space for an actual Lubuntu installation on the computer?

If my answer helped you please mark it as accepted.

comment Changes to /etc/resolv.conf discarded when connecting to a new network
This is no longer the case - dnsmasq is what /etc/resolv.conf looks at (127.0.1.1) in a default install (since at least 14.04)

comment USB sticks not accessible & system hangs at shut-down: related to older hardware?
Note that now that your issue is on Debian 8 and NOT Ubuntu, this question is likely offtopic. If you are saying that this needs to be fixed in Ubuntu/Lubuntu, file a bug.

comment Package Upgrade Failure dpkg returned an error code (1)
Packages are not supposed to (as a matter of packaging policy) touch anything in /root or home directories of users. This package violates policy and should not be used.

comment Connect to School's Print Control System
It's likely that your school doesn't support Linux on its remote print system. Unfortunately, if this is the case, there's nothing you can really do about it.
