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

comment Package 'tomcat7' has no installation candidate on ubuntu 12.04
@nazar_art the file you need to include as part of your question is /etc/apt/sources.list and it does exist on your system otherwise apt would be breaking. Follow Braiam's answer, but note that /etc/apt/sources.list does exist in any 12.04 environment.

comment gcc without g++?
Why not just install build-essential? It will allow you to make all this work without any other hassle. Also, gcc is the C compiler not the C++ compiler, so you have to use g++ for C++

This is too broad and opinion-based for this site.

comment how to know WHAT and WHEN the next cron job is?
Are you looking for a built-in solution, or a third-party, have-to-configure-and-setup web-based solution?

comment how to know WHAT and WHEN the next cron job is?
Webmin isn't a clear answer. You have suggested some random third party software for that, but that does not answer the asker's question.

comment Preventing NetworkManager from bring certain network interfaces 'up' by default
facepalm I forgot all about /etc/rc.local. But I've tried a similar thing, using a TTY before logging in and doing sudo ifconfig wlan0 down but after I logged in, the network interface was back up, because Network Manager (part of the GUI) brought it back up on its own. I'm not sure the method here will work, based on my tests. I'll test this at next reboot though, and we'll see if this answer works or not. (You still get an upvote!)

comment Preventing NetworkManager from bring certain network interfaces 'up' by default
@chili555 because at times I may need to use that interface and it needs to be readily available in the event the other one won't work for the network(s) I use. Which happens sometimes because of MAC address restrictions.

comment PPA & Packaging: Having versions of packages for multiple distros
@KhurshidAlam Sorry for the super super late response. That will fail with an "Invalid Changelog", and as such, you have to specifically tag each separately when using a PPA with a different version. [launchpad.net/~nginx/+archive/stable ](launchpad.net/~nginx/+archive/stable) is a good example of this, because to make it build I have to add the distribution to the version so it builds correctly with all the different libraries. (I maintain the nginx team's ppas for now hence me using that as an example.)

comment There's a file in my trash that can't be deleted
Then something in your system is hinky. The trash folder should be in ~/.local/share, but if the Trash folder was erased then that could be a problem.

comment Komodo Edit: GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion `sys_page_size == 0' failed
I believe you can ignore that error, I get that with almost any process that uses the GUI or GLib when I launch it from the command line. That or similar errors.

Open up the terminal and do cd ~/.local/share/Trash/files. Then do ls -l and check ownership of the file you're trying to delete.
