comment vmware-vix vmrun command error: “unable to connect to host … version not found”
This fixed the problem for me. (but unfortunately I didn't have a Workstation license - I'm just using the vagrant plugin which uses a different license. However, my employer stumped up for a workstation license to get me unblocked and everything works fine.)

comment How to create a bootable USB from a .iso file?
Worked perfectly for me first time (for a bootable Ubuntu ISO), while other answers on this page could not be made to work.

comment How to create a bootable USB from a .iso file?
Startup Disk Creator reliably crashes for me, both when I try 'Erase Disk', and when I try to create the USB image. Starting it using 'sudo usb-creator-gtk --allow-system-internal', as suggested on related SO threads, does not help. Ubuntu 15.04 Desktop.

comment How do I turn off font pixel antialiasing only in Terminal?
I've created a ~/.fonts.conf containing the second snippet, to disable antialiasing for all uses of a font (Dina, a bitmap font I downloaded). I still see it anti-aliased above certain size. Do I need to reboot or something? I tried running 'fc-cache ~/.fonts', which was quick and silent.

comment pyvenv-3.4 error: returned non-zero exit status 1
Curious. I got here because I am seeing the problem in 15.04. Ah. The last few entries on the lengthy Ubuntu bug you link say one needs to install new package python3-venv, which isn't a dependency of python3, to get the fix.

comment pyvenv-3.4 error: returned non-zero exit status 1
You need to prefix 'sudo apt-get install python3.4-venv' - Otherwise I don't have a 'pyvenv-3.4' executable on the PATH. (Ubuntu 15.04)

comment How do I increase the resize margin on windows?
One cannot claim that usability is a priority if this fiddly, annoying, difficult to use default is being kept just to satisfy some subjective design aesthetic.

comment How do I increase the resize margin on windows?
I don't remotely feel like it's a major drawback. The difference is subjective, and could easily be preferable with wider borders. Meanwhile the annoyance and number of person-hours lost fiddling with this ridiculous issue on all levels is immense.

comment SSH asks for password
setting home and .ssh permissions to 750 don't fix this for me. I still can't "ssh localhost" without being asked for a password. I'd really like to so that I can use a Fabric script which configures servers to set up my local dev/test environment.

It works! Nice one @saiarcot895, thanks! Do you want to cut and paste this into an answer for the credit? FWIW, I've been dying to Skype with my little boy who's out of the country for the week, so this is really really valuable for me. Thanks!
