comment Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS Bind Upgrade Question
Relevant question that you should possibly read: Why don't the repositories have the latest versions of software?

comment Neither pidgin or empathy receive offline Gmail chat messages
This bug is not actually an issue on the Ubuntu side of things. This is a bug in the Google side of things.

comment How to run a script each time I login AND unlock session
@GabrielF I discussed this with one of our moderators (RolandiXor), and this here link is the bookmarked chat on this issue. They agree that that philosophy does not apply in this instance, and that you SHOULD include the key points of the link that you have linked to in this answer. That philosophy you linked to is a good idea, but ultimately you SHOULD include the key points from a link in an answer, rather than just a link-only answer, because link-only answers aren't great.

comment When turning on/off wifi, wifi is “soft blocked”, any way to automatically run `rfkill unblock`?
@Braiam I had this tagged for 12.04 because that's the version of Ubuntu I am using, is there a reason you're removing it and putting in shortcut-keys which is not applicable because I'm not trying to find a shortcut to do this but to automate this as part of the hardware switch process? (rolled back until you provide ample justification for your change)

comment How to run a script each time I login AND unlock session
You've already linked to the source, @GabrielF. Leave the source link in place and all should be fine. (ubuntuforums.org won't kill you for that) You'll notice I did so on this answer to another question where I lifted the steps from their site and put them here, but I specifically said the source was not my own. That hasn't been sniped yet, because it's not me stealing information, I said "It's their work, I just copied it to here."

@GabrielF While this technically answers the question, it would be preferable if you provide the key points in the link as part of your answer, in the off-chance the link ends up dying eventually.

You could also have just escaped the # character with \#

comment System hangs during boot at “Starting MySQL server [OK]”
They don't have to upgrade to 12.10 just to fix this. This answer is incorrect, however it is still an attempt at an answer.

comment How do I solve laptop overheating and battery draining really fast?
@Brask if your question that you post is not a question it doesn't fit with this site. Read the help center. If you instead post a question and answer it then that works. Guide-only "question" posts are bad here and are better suited for the wiki or a forum site.

comment Do I also need to set up another iptables rules for ipv6 if I just used iptables?
@Braiam never said anything about the flags. Some of the commands won't work (-j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited for example, because the reject packet is a different name in IPv6)

comment cron job exetue, but receive error + 500 internal server error
This is a permissions issue. You'll have to verify that Apache2 has read/write to the directory and files.

comment Do I also need to set up another iptables rules for ipv6 if I just used iptables?
@Braiam for the dport rules, yes, but without their actual ruleset in hand for us to view, some of the rules might not be interchangeable with ip6tables.

comment problem with extracting .tgz file
"Unexpected EOF" means that the tarball isn't complete, or is corrupt. You'll have to redownload.

comment Comic book project using all open source apps
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the legal use case for the Ubuntu logo, and not an Ubuntu issue.

comment Comic book project using all open source apps
This site is not the site in where Canonical exists, you would have to contact Canonical and ask for permission to use the Ubuntu logo in your project.
