comment Green screen on totem when playing mp4 files
Oh, yes totally. Bc. gstreamer might want to use HW acceleration and VMs sometimes do funny things. Also, there seem to be some issues with VMware: communities.vmware.com/message/2330200 But I can't say much about this and can't test it now. I usually use Virtualbox

OK, this is possibly a bug. Could you install gnome-media then run gstreamer-properties and on the Video tab, click "Test" for Video Output. What do you see? You may try to set the output to "XWindow System (no XV)" and see if the green screen disappears.

Mh, according to gstreamer.freedesktop.org/documentation/plugins.html , that should have been it. Could type dpkg -l | grep gstreamer into a terminal and post the output to some kind of pastebin, e.g., paste.ubuntu.com

comment Good starting point for Learning all about Ubuntu?
Is that so? I've not done it myself (I have got almost 10 years of Linux experience), but many of the comments say that it is very easy. Almost for people who have little experience with computers in general. Like there is a chapter on how to change your desktop wallpaper...

comment Is there a port of python3-launchpadlib to 14.04?
You should probably ask the author directly.

comment 14.10: VirtualBox “No suitable module for running kernel found”, Cannot Find Kernel Source
Hm. To be honest, I've never done an upgrade, always fresh install out of fear of broken packages... Upgrades are a nightmare... I can only tell you, that I've got linux-generic, linux-image-generic, linux-headers-generic` and linux-signed-generic all installed on my system.

comment I can't install any package on Ubuntu Server
Did you do a clean install from an official medium or where did you get your copy from? It shouldn't be broken out of the box :)

That's weird... Please check /etc/apt/sources.list It shouldn't say "trusty" anywhere, but "utopic"

Can you be more specific please? You plug-in the Projector, then do you change settings manually, do you use a special key on your Notebook?

comment 14.10: VirtualBox “No suitable module for running kernel found”, Cannot Find Kernel Source
Wait, that doesn't sound right. You say Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) and Kernel 3.13.0-30? I run 14.04 and got 3.13.0-45. Could you please post the output of lsb_release -a and uname -r? Also, have you done a sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get dist-ugprade? -- Edit: 3.16.0-30 should be current
