comment Checking for 'gee-0.8' >= 0.8.0 : not found
@Raje Which version of Ubuntu are you using? libgee-0.8 and its packages are only available in Trusty and later and unless you are on Ubuntu Trusty or later you won't be able to easily get those dependencies.

comment How can I install without a USB or CD? I have tried UNetbootin and wubi
@Terrance8D they don't have USB or CD/DVD ROM - I wonder if this is on a tablet or an all in one

comment Force primary HDD to be as secondary?
This will actually detract from read/write speeds, and therefore will be detrimental.

comment ITunes on Ubuntu to manage iOS apps
Only iTunes can truly handle applications on iOS devices. Granted, the problem with iOS devices as such is that there is no iTunes utility that works as intended on Ubuntu, even under wine based on latest Wine AppDB test results. PlayOnLinux does not manage/transfer them either. There's no Ubuntu/Wine usable utility to do that.

comment Server 14.10 installed, update error
Can you post the actual error message and not the small excerpt? We need more information, and what you've provided is not a complete error message.

comment Ubuntu says Chrome closed, but it is still open
I wonder if this could be because of a crashed thread of chrome - it opens a lot of threads after all.

comment What is a '.orig.tar.xz' file in packaging?
+1 good answer. Also, consider that the .orig.tar must not change between package revisions within the same version number (i.e. between 1.6.0-1 and 1.6.0-1.1, the .orig.tar file cannot change, and the source code you use cannot differ from the .orig.tar without patches contained as part of quilt).

comment why wont my net book recognize that its wireless
@mchid that's not entirely true - some wireless adapters need proprietary drivers which aren't included because of licensing

comment Make gksu ask for password in terminal
You effectively don't. If you need to run it from root, you can, and then run a sudo chown later to change file ownership. gksu operates under the same logic as sudo does, as well, in that anything 'created' by the application will be done as the superuser root.

comment Wireshark Openflow support not working
true, however most users aren't going to compile software themselves (which is why I made a Wireshark PPA for my installing the newer Wireshark on older systems)

comment Wireshark Openflow support not working
Note that Ubuntu does not have Wireshark 1.12 any earlier than 14.10 (Utopic) - this will not work on earlier versions.

comment Where is the terminal in Ubuntu Phone?
@bodhi.zazen I think this qualifies as an answer. Not necessarily a good answer, but it is an answer. (It says they can install the terminal from the ubuntu store as an app, essentially.)

Are you absolutely certain they have a KVM setup which allows a kernel independent from the host kernel?

comment Ubuntu asks for password where none is set
INteresting tidbit: You actually do need to set a password for autologin and the system to operate correctly - since sudo actually asks you for a password it assumes you have one, and unlike the Live environment you don't have a "NOPASSWD" argument to not require the password when you sudo.

comment How to mount a samsung galaxy s5?
Use it as USB Media Mass Storage Device instead if there is such a setting available - in 14.04 MTP devices work better, but in 12.04 I've noticed issues (tested with a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4, but same concept that MTP and USB media storage are handled differently)

comment uname -a gives a wrong kernel version
Is this server a VPS? If so, does the host use OpenVZ as the method of virtualization? (We need more information on the type of server, how it was installed/setup, etc.)
