comment playonlinux installation failed how do I fix it?
Try hitting alt+f2 and then typing playonlinux. Does that open Play On Linux for you? (if so, I'll turn this into an answer, if not it'll stay a comment)

comment Where can I find network connection details?
@madox2 if all you're interested is seeing the information, just use the GUI, because network manager kind of doesn't really use any textual files to list the configuration. Those textual files you looked at are good if you don't really use networkmanager. network manager kind of messes with all of that.

comment Where can I find network connection details?
I don't have Windows around, can't help you with comparison between them. Default route usually means the default gateway though. As for where this data is stored, I don't think it is stored anywhere, I believe the data's running from memory and the system itself, rather than being stored anywhere. Why specifically do you want the file if any of where this information is stored?

comment Why does update-manager download and install updates separately?
I have to agree with @EliahKagan on this one. The question that this one was marked as a dupe of answers what we believe is what you're asking (based on what you've added, that CONFIRMS that initial assessment).

give me a few minutes to deploy a destructable VM so I can graphically show you what to do. As for determining DHCP/Static, that isn't usually revealed by the network/router unless you ahve admin on that router/network.

Are you using the GUI (GNOME/Unity/etc.), or server/commandline only?

comment how to move specific files based on their extensions
You'll need to give us more details. What extension, whether you're trying to recursively move items, etc. are all relevant information here.

While this may answer the question, it would be preferred that you summarize or include key points to the linked page, should it disappear in future.

@AshRj is compatibility with blogger 100% required by you for software recommendations?

Downvoted because the OP still wants compatibility with blogger. Unless I missed something in the interim.

comment Ubuntu in VirtualBox wants to install on every boot
This does not ultimately fix the issue, as it is advisable to still use the CD boot first as if this were a real system, in case you have to do some repairs via the live environment. The other answer will explain virtual disk ejection though.

@AshRj my point was that you could create your post as an email, send it with an email client, and then it would sit in your outbox until you have internet connectivity, when it would then send.

comment How to install TestDisk from source
For 12.04 and later, you probably won't need to enable Universe, as it is usually enabled.

I don't have an issue with leaving this here, because it was actually an "answer", just not one which answers the OP's question. It won't be deleted, if that's your concern :)

Most blogging sites allow you to post via email. Did you check to see whether blogger allows you to post by email?

They do mention it needs blogger support, so you'll have to forgive the thumbs-down on your answer, but since it doesn't really do what they're asking, well...

Does it have offline support, though? That'ts one of the things they're asking about.
