comment Windows 7 - VirtualBox - OpenVPN - Ubuntu 12.04
@solsTiCe I don't know if we can or not, the specifics of their netowrking requirements/topology are ambiguous. Their comment is such that "I need that Ubuntu has internet" and "can conect to the VPN using VBox adapters installed in Windows". It's still ambiguous what they want to actually achieve either way, and there's several ways to attack the issue at hand. Ideally they need to provide much more details about the restrictions on the network and such, permissions on the VPN (can it pass through to the INet directly or not), etc. before we can truly answer them.

Follow-up: Per their comment above, they want both VPN routed and Direct-To-Network setups, which makes it even harder for them to achieve.

comment Windows 7 - VirtualBox - OpenVPN - Ubuntu 12.04
Assuming they want data to go out via OpenVPN - if they want something different such as one to the Internet direct and one to OpenVPN it won't work. (but the NAT one will work as you state here)

Do you need Ubuntu to route over the VPN as well, or do you want that to instead route right out to the Internet instead of going over the VPN?

comment Safest place to get latest Apache and PHP or switch to debian?
Also, ask only one real question. I see four different questions: "Safest place to get latest Apache and PHP", "How hard is it to switch to Debian?", "Is Debian comparable to Ubuntu Server", and "Is it more like having to edit source code...". You ask four separate disparate questions. This si also Ask Ubuntu, we won't be explaining Debian to you. Pick one of those for this one here.

comment Safest place to get latest Apache and PHP or switch to debian?
Ondrej is the one of the PHP guys for Debian by the way. His code isn't malicious in those PPAs. Switching from Ubuntu to Debian is painful because you don't get the latest code in either case. You also can't easily switch due to the many differences between Debian and Ubuntu which make Ubuntu a separate distribution.

comment How to install, fglrx on (K)ubuntu 15.04 ? Starting version 219 AMD R9 290x
That should already be in the Vivid repositories, though... is there a reason you want to install the already existing version?

comment How to see computer activity
If you refer to user Internet histories as 'logs' that's one thing, but if you are referring to the system logs and such, then you need to give the kids a non-sudo account so they can't edit system logs. We need a lot more information on what 'logs' you're referring to and how you're seeing their 'usage time' in the first place.

comment How to see computer activity
@PauliusŠukys I never said that, but the original question remains unclear, we know not what they're referring to by 'activity' or 'logs'.

comment How to see computer activity
@PauliusŠukys The OP says their kid is using the computer at unauthorized times. The logs are removed so they want to track time of use. Short of some syslog fun, the duplicate of "How to restrict time" is the closest approximation to what is needed here for this situation. This would therefore achieve the goal of controlling computing time. As the goal is identical I think this could qualify as a dupe.

I'm not sure this is a legitimate answer to the question.

comment I have installed Ubuntu, but want to re-install windows Vista
@SHYMAD actually I read the question, then I read your answer, and you overcomplicate - saying "Try Something Else" in the installer then say "Don't go further". You could reduce the complexity by saying "Hit Try ubuntu, open gparted, right click the partition, hit "delete"." In any case, this is a dupe of another question, so answers are at that point irrelevant.

I'll poke at this in my VM - I wonder if its broken functionality somewhere that needs a bug filed...

comment I have installed Ubuntu, but want to re-install windows Vista
They can just use the Windows disk to erase the partitions and use the entire drive. No need to complicate by saying "Do these steps but then don't hit next on it anymore". They could also use gparted from the "Try Ubuntu" option to just delete partitions.

comment udev rules to allow only one vendor and model USB drive but no others
@Sneetsher the second one, however even without the kernel and subsystem and driver arguments the system is still ignoring the "ignore_device" option regardless

comment How to install metasploit and armitage in Ubuntu?
Reinstall from scratch. The Kali repos are Debian and not Ubuntu and mixing repositories from multiple distros will usually always trash your system (unless you use apt pinning correctly)

comment My Dell laptop Inspiron 6000 won't go past the logo page
what do you mean by "logo page"? The manufacturer logo at BIOS or the Ubuntu logo which is the splash screen typically seen when Ubuntu is actually loading?

comment How to execute a sudo script with double click
I think you should add an extra security check - make sure the user running the script is the user who wants to double click. system accounts shouldn't be able to access or use the script, IMO.
