comment How do I get Adobe Flash functional in Superbird browser in Xubuntu 15.04, 64-bit?
Try "Ancient". It's Flash 11, and 99.9999% of all websites which actually are supposed to be Flash driven and are legitimately taking steps to prevent you from screwing yourself over will say "Update because we won't work otherwise." for security purposes. You could follow the guide for making Pepper Flash from Chrome work on Firefox and adapt to Superbird, but... no guarantees on anything. Pepper Flash remains the only supported Linux Flash now and only as part of Google Chrome (so you'll need to install it to even use the plugin)

The version of the Linux flash player will trigger "Out Of Date" warnings as Linux is no longer supported by Adobe for Flash.

We have no idea what you're talking about... what "insecure boot mode"?

speedtest.net isn't the best representation of bandwidth speed, by the way...

comment Can't Launch Help Center in KMyMoney
File a bug about the issue. This sounds like a software bug somewhere where it's looking for software not present.

comment Can I use Chrome's Pepper Flash with Firefox?
@Mandx you should be able to propose such an edit and so long as you don't break any other parts of my answer I have no doubt it'll be accepted. I can't edit and add that in from my phone.

comment Print again the last printed paper using command line
Note though that it is possible you no longer have the print job in the spool anywhere so this may not work.

comment Not able to 'unset' environmental variable permanently - UBUNTU
Glad to hear it! I've moved my comments into an answer so you can accept it as the valid answer and mark the question as 'solved'.

comment Not able to 'unset' environmental variable permanently - UBUNTU
First you have to figure out where you set that variable in the first place. Do you know where you set it before? Simply setting it in the terminal is not enough to make a 'permanent' env variable

comment Warface EU on ubuntu
Note that some games also just do not work with PoL or Wine, and that the Wine AppDB should be checked for any test results on that given game to see if it works or not.

comment My lap restarts when i close the lid?
It's unclear what you mean by "shutdown" and "restart". What steps did you take to 'shut down', and what do you mean when you say 'restart'? What computer are you using this on as well?

comment I have a Dell Inspiron 15 3543 with Ubuntu 15.04 as dual boot but wi-fi doesn't work and it doesn't detect the mobile broadband
Use the "Hardware Drivers" tool to check for any proprietary drivers you may need as well. Broadcom cards don't work until you obtain extra drivers sometimes, and some mobile broadband cards don't work.

Did you verify that you have the correct drivers installed for the wifi?

comment How to execute a program from symlink
@Tim he can achieve the same with a symlink, and won't need a bash alias to execute (you can create symlinks with different names on the link, and it'll execute the actual thing it's linked to)

comment Upadating of packages after installation of new program
@MnPr4UB However, as A.B. said, if you are only installing software you don't typically need the command every time. Routinely run apt-get update and apt-get upgrade to get bugfixes and such though.

comment Upadating of packages after installation of new program
@MnPr4UB it depends. You need to do apt-get update and apt-get upgrade routinely after installation to get bugfixes, new versions, etc. However, the most often case of needing to run apt-get update is after adding a new source to /etc/apt/sources.list or /etc/apt/sources.list.d/. The packaging system has no idea what packages are available in the new source location until you run it. You then typically run an install command to install from that new source, and sudo apt-get update later to get updates from that source, or to 'forget' the source if you removed it.

@edbale It's just a case of needing to read and actually follow all the steps provided in answers to get the result you want. That's all :)

comment Installing New Kernel with apt
@edbale Then you ran apt-get update before running the install command?

comment Installing New Kernel with apt
@edbale Reread this answer, and you will see that you have to create the .list file yourself, then run sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get install linux-mptcp after that. I've edited the answer slightly, but you need to read the answer and follow the commands given to you.
