comment Use Citadel to run FTP and Email Server?
FYI: All home/dynamic internet connections are typically considered "spam". As well, a lot of ISPs block email servers and mail sending originating from a home-run server.

comment How to get the calender from 10.04 or a similar alternative?
@Rmano if you read his question, the OP states they are still using 10.04. They actually say that in the first line. That alone is EOL.

Support for 10.04 Desktop ended in 2013, when Lucid Desktop went End of Life.

comment On terminal I see PHP 5.3.29, but in browser I am getting PHP 5.5.9. Please help
You should not have an apt-get/dpkg package for php5 when compiling it from source as well - the two will conflict and the version in the packages will always supersede the other version when the software gets updated.

comment no longer able to log into ubuntu computers on lan using ssh and ssh clients
connection refused has no bearing on your using Ubuntu 14.04 or not, it means the other computers are refusing connections - this could be because sshd isn't running on the other systems, or that the firewalls on those machines are blocking connections.

comment creating a 32 bit wineprefix on 64bit system?
@user169029 as i said in my other comment, that's the default wineprefix directory. As I do not use Wine, any statements are going to be me guessing as to what the actual path is. I would start by going and checking to see if that path (/home/myname/.wine/drive_c) exists, first, and if it does that's likely your wineprefix. I'd make a backup of that directory first in case this breaks.

For the record, when you are requesting additional information you can add a comment to an answer. That way, the poster of the answer sees your message. To answer your question, it might be there, yes, you have to make sure that that path actually exists.

comment 14.04 32 bit terribly pain fully slow
Your specs are really really low for Ubuntu. You should probably use a lighter variant, like Xubuntu (XFCE) or Lubuntu (LXDE). Read the linked question, in the comment by mikewhatever, it explains minspecs for each release

comment Damaged SD card (badly unmounted?) How to fix?
This doesn't recover the data - a new partition table will screw up the data itself and prevent access - it's basically a sure-fire way to lose data.

comment Skype 4.3 in repositories
Should probably point out that Skype and Microsoft produce their own installable .deb packages on the Skype site, if you realllly need an expedient update.

comment LAN networking problem
@KasiyA I don't think it's 100% necessary to redirect people to other sites all the time, in this case you might be right but still. I'd reword your comment next time to say "Ask it on serverfault, and you might get a faster response." rather than just say "Ask it on serverfault"

comment LAN networking problem
@KasiyA is there a reason their statement is offtopic here? They want to turn one of their Ubuntu systems into a server with DHCP, IP routing, and a LAMP stack.

@user3168731 read the expanded edit, and the last segment... it explains the regex.

comment Explain in details egrep line
This sounds like a homework question because it's very very sparse with details. Why exactly do you need us to explain the entire line?

comment Unable to boot into Ubuntu, getting a blinking white cursor
You can always load a LiveUSB and mount your partition to recover data... that way you can recover the data.

Where do you mean the 'login shell'? TTY, SSH, or gnome-terminal?

comment Can I dualboot Win8 and Ubuntu 14.04 on a SSHD?
This question is also infinitely broad. There's a thousand guides for installing, and you can use any of them. I'm ultimately guessing, but you're asking "How to install and dualboot" so I'm assuming UEFI supported Windows 8 is preinstalled
