comment Unity's “File Edit View” menus in Gnome Fallback in Ubuntu 12.04?
Patience is better. And just as an FYI, if you continued to bump your posts, you could've gotten your post edit-locked so that NOBODY but mods could edit. Constantly reverting one's edits just because you want something in the title, when it's not supposed to be in the title, usually ends up in an "edit war" and posts get locked. Don't bump your posts, basically.

That's not why he removed it. Putting additional irrelevant information in the topic JUST to bump the question (which is really what you were doing) is why myself and fossfreedom and others removed that from your title.

DO NOT edit your topic to add "[Accepting Answers]" again. Until this question has an answer marked as "Accepted" it is assumed you are accepting answers. Adding "Accepting Answers" to your title only bumps this thread, and you should not do that. (The fact that both me and a moderator have had to reverse this means that you should listen to this comment. Check the revision history to see what I mean by me and a moderator both reversing this change.)

comment Emails send to Yahoo declined
@AdrianGeorge I checked Yahoo's documentation on this. You should start by reading this link here because it explains why you're seeing that error. Specifically it indicates that "Yahoo is seeing a high volume of emails from your IP address, which is a characteristic of unsolicited, bulk emailing."

This is too broad and opinion based. As well, we've answered this question multiple times on the site.

comment Why one of the package s I've installed is unaccessible in Guake Terminal?
Did you try closing out guake entirely, then reopening it? Maybe the running console session hasn't detected rails as being installed, or maybe you're SSH'd to some other system and it's not installed there?

comment How can I find out the ROOT password?
FYI: There is no root password in a default installation, because the root user account is disabled

comment What're the differences between 12.04.3 LTS desktop and 12.04.3?
What exactly are you comparing here? "Ubuntu" is Ubuntu, whether it's the Desktop images or the Server images.

@Rinzwind probably better to look at the system requirements question instead...

comment Permission denied when excute a script ?
@user240938 What you're trying to do is run make.py as an executable script. In order for this to function, you have to give it the executable bit, which is what this chmod command does. The alternative is to do python make.py bootstrap. In the same command, though, ./make.py bootstrap, bootstrap is just an argument being passed to make.py while it executes, so you still have to mark make.py as executable.

comment How to deny an ip address from connecting to my system?
I would suggest that instead of -j DROP one uses -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-unreachable or -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-port-unreachable. You should only use DROP if you want all packets from a given IP blocked and not responded to. As well, you have been posting questions and answering them a lot. A lot of these questions you've posted already exist, you know.

comment How to enable iptables in ubuntu
FYI: iptables ships with Ubuntu by default. If you have a custom kernel that might be one of the problems. If it's just bad like this, then there seems to be a bigger issue than just iptables not running.

comment What is the correct way to create your own packages for local installation?
You can always download the older package version from wherever, and then install it by hand, without repackaging everything.

comment How do I get design input on a paper cut?
This needs revising. The new consensus is to NEVER assign a bug to someone unless (1) you assign it to yourself, or (2) someone said to assign the bug to them because they can't assign themselves at the time.

comment run all command inside script with typing the password one time
It's bad form to have a script request superuser powers (with sudo) during execution if multiple commands will need it. Do all the commands need to be run as superuser?

Can you be more specific with what you're asking? For example, which 'print' button are you talking about?

comment Problems with Keyring login
It might be a good idea to mention that the keyring password is USUALLY the password that's set on your user account, whether you use the password to login or not.
