comment How do I install alfred-json on Ubuntu?
That's a Debian repository - you SHOULD BE CAREFUL with Debian repositories - they can break things

comment Strange see-through pane on top of everything
@Mateo OK, there was no reference to that in the edit msg, so it appeared as a "What are you doing? Can you confirm this?" thing. Thanks for posting the transcript, I was about to rollback your edit xD

comment Strange see-through pane on top of everything
@Mateo can you absolutely 100% verify the OP is using Unity?

comment Kali Linux tools on Ubuntu 15.04
@beguueradj and while it looks like the user was GOING to create a 14.04 and newer PPA for the tools, it remains empty. So same assessment.

comment Kali Linux tools on Ubuntu 15.04
@begueradj Ceases support after raring (check the referenced PPAs). The only one it does support while being not EOL is Precise which in turn EOLs in the next two years. I'd rather just say "Go get Kali"

comment How to clone git repository only some directories?
This implies all Ubuntu versions have 1.7 available. You should check that to be the case and comment on your answer here as to which individual versions will actually work. PowerShell is also not Ubuntu and therefore should not be included, in my opinion.

Deleted how? What's your virtualization solution? We need more information to help you here.

comment Live USB creating additional partitions
as @Takkat mentions, it's likely those may be hidden partitions, hidden from Windows' view or such, and therefore it already exists (and isn't a brand new partition)

comment Ipv6 - Connect : Network is unreachable
Did you configure a v6 address for the computer and did you confirm that the v6 route is added? Did you also confirm that this is in Bridged mode (and not NAT mode) for the guest network adapter? (It's probable auto negotiation is failing or routing is failing and needs a lot more configuration to make work)

comment Adding swap due boot take too long time
Are you sure that the addition of swap is actual taking that entire time, rather than nothing outputting to boot log? I.E. are you certain its really the addition of swap that is taking that long.

comment How do I recover my access to google groups?
Read the Firefox error. HSTS is enabled on the site but the SSL certificate is invalid. Nuke your browser cache completely and try again. If it still fails the issue is a remote site issue and not one fixable here

comment How to install Ubuntu on an HP Mini netbook?
This has always been and will always be wrong. Linux can see free unused space of a disk, and can manipulate partitions. That's a prerequisite for most any OS.

comment Ubuntu Live CD with /dev/nvram available
No, I mean, that the moment you hit "Reboot" it removes the 'custom' kernel because it's not stored on the LiveCD. It's immediately lost.

comment Ubuntu Live CD with /dev/nvram available
You'd have to compile a custom kernel and then make a custom respin of the ISO that you create the LiveCD with, so that it would have that new kernel. There's no way to do that from within the LiveCD since it won't remember the 'newly compiled' kernel. None of the Ubuntu ISOs contain that change, AFAIK.

comment No Vboxautostart-service scripts in virtualbox?
@Arronical I don't think that information has any real answers, if they were excluded for such a reason that bug on Debian would've been removed saying "We didn't package it because foobarbaz." and then the bug would be Won'tFix'd.

Except if /tmp is mounted as a ramdisk, which doesn't apply in this case.

comment Linux based incremental disk image
if you're going to be changing your entire drive layout and configuration including boot sectors frequently you shouldn't be taking an image of the system at all. Incremental images are alright, but if you're changing your mind about the 'best configuration' then you don't need incremental backups and images, you need to make a decision and stick with it instead.

Your /tmp directory is full. Have you not restarted the box in a long time?

comment Linux based incremental disk image
I know of no software that can achieve all your requirements. Why do you need incremental cloning? (It sounds like you want a tarball of your entire drive and contents rather than a cloning/image...)
