comment How to install Adsuck?
As well, have you considered reading their instructions for setting up the software? The instructions from Adsuck themselves seems to be pretty complete, except for the fact they say a lot of the steps have to be done by hand, which implies you will need tech knowledge to set it up. As well, you make the supposition that 'all sites will have anti adblock scripts', which is an overgeneralization and is therefore incorrect.

comment How to install Adsuck?
I think your bigger concern is malware scripts instead of ad scripts. Your 'friend' should probably be more specific on what it blocks compared to AdBlock Plus and others which actually function on sites which block adblockers. As I said, though, the overhead of this application would be substantial for the end user and works better in a more enterprise grade network where this runs at the DNS server on the network and intercepts requests and such. From a end-user perspective, setting this up and running it is a lot of overhead

comment How to install Adsuck?
This adds a whole DNS server functionality to your system - this isn't really useful on a individual-system level. A lot of ad-driven sites can't actually block a majority of the anti-ad plugins...

comment How do I install the Firefox Developer Edition?
This doesn't really count as an answer to the question - you haven't answered how to 'install' the firefox developer edition.

comment User name and password
Suggesting to a user that they should check any web search before asking a question is bad form, and should never be done. It's essentially a "RTFM" like question that adds no benefit to the answers.

comment Difference between “su”, “sudo -s”, “sudo -i”
Debian asks for a root pw on install. Therefore you are inaccurate with 'root has no pw on debian based systems'

@user3858193 I mean like PPAs or anything. You don't have any added to your system?

comment How can I install Ubuntu 14.10's kernel in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS?
@Ubuntuser I suggest that you don't always run the newer kernels on 14.04, you're going to run into issues such as hardware driver failures potentially. The security fixes for the issues fixed in later kernels usually end up in the LTS kernel, the kernel and security teams are pretty decent at keeping up to date with those.

comment Why don't the Ubuntu repositories have the latest versions of software?
As mentioned elsewhere, backports are uncommon and there are not many.

comment Screen Resolution Problem with Ubuntu 14.04 and VMware
@KristofTak It still does that for the logon screen for mt Lubuntu VM - it then uses the config I had set up and saved in the user's settings after login...

comment Screen Resolution Problem with Ubuntu 14.04 and VMware
@KristofTak the resolution support is partly due to VMware tools - I've made it work after installing the tools. My Lubuntu VMs all now support screen resolution changes in VMware Workstation

comment Connect to server not recognizing sftp
No the version in 14.04 works fine. Note the string format to use is ssh://USER@address:PORT - make sure you are using that string format

@Samir I updated my response now that I got my hands on my 14.04 Ubuntu system (it was down until I could replace the system fan). It uses ssh:// instead of sftp://. Try that.

12.10 and the variants between 12.04 and 14.04 are all End of Life. I'd suggest you start here: askubuntu.com/questions/91815/…

comment bash script to check if input has an @
Please make a note: Pure programming questions such as these are probably better suited for Stack Overflow, even though they're somewhat on topic here if the system used is Ubuntu.

comment Problems Syncing Songs to iPhone 6 on iOS 8, Ubuntu 14.04
This is a known issue - all other music apps dont' seem to use the correct file formatting on the iPhone for storing the music, and it doesn't work. You'll have to use iTunes to manage your music library, either booting from Windows, or loading it in Wine, or in a VM.

comment Connect to server not recognizing sftp
Did you put all the other options in such as username and password? You have to provide those as well. If you want, take a screenshot of what you're doing and share it (obfuscating the private information) as well, it might help me to understand what you're seeing.

comment Connect to server not recognizing sftp
@Samir Don't put the prefix in the address. So sftp://1.2.3.4/ becomes 1.2.3.4. It auto-adds the corresponding prefix.
