comment Is it worth to buy a macbook and install ubuntu on it?
Opinion based questions like this one are not a good fit for this site because it's not possible to authoritatively give you one good answer for this.

What have you looked into so far for managing this, if anything?

comment How to install MIRACL c++ library in Ubuntu 14.04?
@ElderGeek go into the edit history, copy-paste the nonformatted code into the gedit text editor or the command line - it's -I, never was -l. (Just tested, too.)

@ElderGeek consider: that's -I not -l.

While this may theoretically answer the question, it is preferred that you include the relevant bits of the site here or similar in order to provide a full answer even if the link goes away or breaks going forward.

comment Know if I buy a compatible hardware
While this may answer the question, it is preferable to put more than just links as an answer and provide some details.

comment What's the difference between the two “Desktop Image” sections on the 14.04 releases page?
Note to everyone: This is no longer a problem, and the confusing second section has been removed.

comment What's the difference between the two “Desktop Image” sections on the 14.04 releases page?
@xmllmx it's easy to miss, but the problem is that people may be confusing the "links" for the "Sections". Screenshots might help you in this case, outlining the two sections with rectangular outlines or such. In either case I've written up an answer.

comment gnome-terminal instantly closes after messing with the profile settings
@steeldriver but as it currently is in its current form, it's not relevant or useful to future readers. As well, it could also be "Unclear" or "Too Broad", it could fall into multiple close reasons.

comment gnome-terminal instantly closes after messing with the profile settings
This is being marked as "offtopic" in that it can't be reproduced nor can it be useful in the future. The OP has commented in an answer that they fixed it themselves. If the OP posts their 'solution' as an answer then I may remove that close vote, however it does not appear this question in the form it's in will be useful to future readers.

What command did you set it to, because I bet the 'command' is running and then terminating automatically, which is going to cause problems all the time.

Which 'error' are you referring to there? There's a lot of output and unless you're specific theres no way to help figure this out.

comment installing the canonical version of openstack
Have you confirmed that eth0 actually can get out to the internet? "No route to host" suggests networking isn't actually set up or isn't functioning or isn't able to reach out to the net.

comment How to update Ubuntu (and the kernel) without updating Grub's configuration
@GiacomoAlessandroni you may want to wait a couple of days, I'm not as familiar with grub, but my understanding is as my answer states.

comment Ubuntu keeps asking for Wifi password
@user20842454566 This happens to me when the campus network here is over saturated and the access point fails to handle all the connections (and we have individual student logins via 802.11x) - is it possible that's what's going on? (Usually clears up for me within 30 minutes)

comment Mullvad VPN (openvpn) keeps disconnecting / reconnecting (14.04)
@HontváriLevente There is a data leak in OpenVPN in that it sometimes leaks DNS - I think that's already on their radar. And there are ways to crash OpenVPN if you aren't careful (never consider software 100% stable)
