comment compiz refresh rate keeps resetting itself to 50
This question is a little hard to understand, since there's no real question here. What are you trying to ask?

comment how to find out root password
@IanCarroll the answer on the duplicate is still 100% accurate, because that answer will answer here. If they need root, they can use sudo to run commands as superuser, when using the user that was configured at installation time. The duplicate status is accurate and correct as a result.

@Web-E you're right, Server's default is CLI.

comment How to make my server email me when there are security updates?
I am not an expert in the Apache package but I believe it automatically issues a restart command after upgrading. I'd have to check its init scripts and its install scripts to figure that one out, but a restart just means a momentary restart and everything's back to normal quickly, usually within a few seconds, sometimes within a minute max. But if you don't keep it updated, you will be stuck with bugs and a lot of vulnerabilities

comment How to check motherboard chipset?
The easiest way to find out the chipset is to look at the detailed system specs from the manufacturer, it should say what the chipset is.

comment How to make my server email me when there are security updates?
But security upgrades won't do that, security upgrades are usually cherrypicked fixes that are tested before being uploaded. If you configure unattended-upgrades to ONLY do security updates it will likely not break anything.

Have you thought about setting up unattended upgrades and tell it to only automatically install security pocket updates?

comment no mysql workbench in ubuntu 12.04 software center
@jeffery_the_wind what likely was the problem is that you didn't actually apt-get update after enabling universe, which threw the initial issues. Glad to see this fixed it though.

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.

And you set it for BOTH of the power settings, for the battery AND AC connected states, right?

Did you modify your power settings so that it will use hibernate instead of suspend on lid closing?

comment Problems with duplicate sources. Help?
When you use code formatting (there's a button for it in the creation page), it shouldn't generate links. I've edited your text accordingly.

Did you make sure you're looking in the right directory when you run the tar command?

comment Did 13.04 fix the resetting shortcut bug?
No problem, things happen. As a bugcontrol member, I habitually check the status of a bug and look for certain keywords in the bug description to answer these types of questions, so... :P

comment Did 13.04 fix the resetting shortcut bug?
I answered, but this question isn't very constructive, since if you actually READ the bugs you'd see which bug is targeted against what, and you'd also see that the 12.10 and later one was already fixed. This also doesn't really fit with our Q&A guidelines.

Are you specifically asking how to CREATE a new application indicator? I.E. create a program that has one?

The mirrors you are using might not be updated yet. Not all mirrors are synced at the same time.

comment Will gcc >= 4.7 ever come officially to 12.04?
@thomasfannes it likely won't be. See Why Don't The ubuntu Repositories Have The Latest Versions of software? for details as to why more updated versions of software aren't typically included in the main repositories after release.
