comment Setting up websites with Ubuntu 13.04 server and Nginx
@chandra .htaccess doesn't work here, all the security and configurations have to be done in the nginx configuration files. I would suggest that you follow Wutaz's advice and start from the beginning of web servers and start by maybe finding someone who can host the site for you so you don't have to worry about fiddling around with the configuration files. If that doesn't work and you need help with configuration files, though, you may want to read up on the NGINX wiki page about configuration and look at the "Start Here" links.

comment How to create command line application in eclipse (c++ or java)?
I think he is trying to make a package that can be added to a PPA and updated/modified and upgraded via apt-get. But in it's current form this question is too vague to answer...

comment What is the process for reporting an app with a stolen icon?
There is one issue here, as well. The software is listed as "proprietary" and you have to pay for it to get the software. I also believe, therefore, that to get this resolved, Apple would have to go after the providers of the software and pursue them for trademark and copyright infringement. I'm not sure if Ubuntu can do anything about it.

You'd have to report that to Apple so Apple's legal team can go after them. (Note: I am not a lawyer)

comment how to check disk partition in unbuntu 12.10 and do partition for other OS
You've got two questions here that can't be answered at the same time. One about checking your partitions within Ubuntu, and another about installing Windows. Those are completely separate questions, and I suggest you split off the question about installing Windows into a separate question.

Yep, just putting my two-cents out there for the O.P. of the question, though :)

comment Which Java installation for Linux
I strongly suggest using the installation method with the webupd8team's Java PPA, rather than messing with the .tar file.

comment How does one read encrypted e-mail sent from thunderbird
Are you the recipient or the sender of the encrypted message?

comment How does one read encrypted e-mail sent from thunderbird
The recipient of the encrypted message should have a private key/cert that will decrypt the message on their end. If they don't then the message isn't decrypt-able and they won't be able to read it.

It should provide you a link to copy into a web browser, no?

comment No Unity, can't send bug report
You can open a tty by doing ctrl+alt+f1 and then logging in and executing that ubuntu-bug command, right? That will prevent it from loading a GUI window and will do CLI prompts only.

comment Can't connect to my wireless network
Hi, and welcome to Ask Ubuntu! If your problem is solved, you should either accept an answer here or write your own answer to how you fixed this, and accept it. Editing your title to say "Solved" does not actually mark your question as "answered" (aka "solved").

comment Network Manager Fails to Maintain A Long-Term Connection on 802.11x Networks
I replaced the built in wifi card with a Wireless N USB adapter and apparently that works better... but I'll test next time I"m back on that network to see what's up with it. The problem I think is that it has to do with the ~250 systems in the area on the access point and the high net usage causes auth timeouts...

I agree with @searchfgold6789 the question is NOT a duplicate of the specified program.

comment /etc/apt/preferences file is missing
The cat command simply "echos" the data from the file, and the cat command on its own will simply return the information in the file to the command line's output so you see it. If the file doesn't exist, it will error out.

comment Unable to Connect MTS Mblaze modem in Ubuntu 12.10?
This answer does not provide adequate details of what this software or script does, nor what it provides. Therefore, it does not really "answer" anything.

@papukaija judging solely by the OP's statement of " ... , and as a Linux noob, ..." they probably did not set up multiple partitions.
