comment How can I install and use powerline plugin?
@Andrew I am not sure I get your point. You mean you should not install both via Vundle and via pip? Because that is not what I am suggesting, right?

comment How can I install and use powerline plugin?
@DennisWilliamson To be honest, I would not know as I have not used powerline in those contexts. Because all the configuration is vim specific, I could imagine that this does not affect the other contexts at all.

comment Do we have to install Python or It is already installed in Ubuntu 14.04LTS?
Hi Jacob, I think your comment is the only answer this question needed. This is too detailed and misses the focus your comment has. Anyway, wanted to share it with you. Sometimes a one-line answer is enough. Your expertise can then be spent on other questions.

Same here. Pitivi is not safe if you don't want to lose hours of work.

comment Installing python libs under Lubuntu 14.10 getting Errors
To follow up on Timo's answer: install them from the repo so that you have all the dependencies properly installed. Then install from a virtualenv so that you have the specific versions you want.

comment Restoring backup from dd image has really weird results
I am afraid there is not much info we can work with here. If you figure out what the issue was, can you keep us posted so we can learn?

comment Restoring backup from dd image has really weird results
First, kudos on a good question. Second, kudos on checking whether backups work. Third, can you provide more info on "where it gets weird." Are you restoring an install of the entire drive? If so, how did dd copy the root-owned files? Is that not where your problem can come from? Fourth, are you restoring on the same machine you made the backup from?

comment Snappy Ubuntu, how does it relate to Nix and Guix?
So you are asking us to read what you do not want to read??? "A more in depth comparison between Nix and Guix is given by Sander van der Burg, which I didn't read " ... "how does Snappy Ubuntu relate to Nix and Guix? What are major differences?"
