comment Why is the upgrade manager freezing when upgrading to 13.10
Thanks, excellent timing, I was just about to start messing around with it not knowing what I was doing. Hitting <kbd>ctrl+c</kbd> failed to close the update manager. Do you by chance know what the process name is?

comment Flash Plugin not working properly in lubuntu 13.04
Odd, I went to check on my settings using those the instructions I linked to and it seems that I actually have it checked off and the colours are just fine. It was a different computer that I had a problem on that may have had an nvidia graphics card. The one I'm using has an old ATI card. Let me know if that fixed your problem and whether you have an nvidia card or not.

comment Flash Plugin not working properly in lubuntu 13.04
I kind of remember have this same issue back in 10.04 (an age ago). The trick for me was to disable the "enable hardware acceleration" option under flash's settings. See this answer for instructions how. I'll post it as a answer in a bit, just want to look into it more before I do.

comment How to recover apt-get that was deleted by me?
Sorry, you're correct, Synaptic is the front end for apt, it depends on apt. The same is true for Software Center.

Perhaps the question should be can Ubuntu query the modem or router for the IP address given by his ISP and log that?

comment Won't read or play CD/DVD?
Is this an internal or external dvd-drive? I had a similar issue with an external drive and it turned out that it wasn't getting enough power because of a usb hub I was using. It would detect since it was connected, but not function because of the lack of power.

comment Is there any driver available for Radeon XPRESS 200(M)?
I don't know if this is still any issue for you, but in my notebook I have Radeon Xpress 1100 graphics card, the next in line successor to your graphics card. AMD's proprietary drivers aren't compatible with current versions of x.org (anything you'd find in any of the supported versions of Ubuntu) and AMD has announced that they will no long provide updates for Linux drivers on these legacy cards (they did so quite some time ago). However, using the open source drivers, I'm able to run World of Warcraft quite, so they aren't bad.

comment Blood Bowl Not Working
you might want to refer to the AppDB page for this game. There are a number of different versions with multiple ratings, but they include various fixes for running the game.

@SirCharlo I know your comment and this question are rather old, but I found your link to work quite well. Do you think you can add the gist of that as an answer?

comment How to install Ubuntu on a very old PC
A defective motherboard on the acer 5100 series notebooks made it so that the dvd drive and harddrive on my laptop are no longer working. However, using a spare external usb harddrive and usb dvd rom drive, I have been able to run Ubuntu with no bugs. I now use my old laptop as a desktop. What he wants to do is quite possible and has been done before. In my case, I, in addition to a lack of cd/dvd drive, lacked an internal hard drive and even managed to do it.
