comment Issues dual booting Ubuntu 14.04 and Windows 8 on Lenovo z50-70
grub-efi-amd64-signed' package failed to install into /target/ : I had this problem just last night and it came from a bad usb install media. Were you using a USB to install? If you know how to find the install syslog, look for a hashsum mismatch when fetching the grub package. Try making a new install media with a brand new usb or at least a different one. If you are reusing one, re-format it more than once before burning the iso.

comment How to insert the Interpunct character in ubuntu?
@Ruslan Sorry I couldn't get back to you earlier. It mean alt+shift then release, then the rest of the sequence. This was to get into the 3rd level chooser. I tested this a lot at the time at it sure seemed necessary. But Graham is correct that it now no longer appears necessary. Just compose+shift+^+.

comment How can I get the default gcc compiler back?
@muru so the binaries were in home, which explains why it wasn't part of the alternatives setup; but I'm still unsure about what just happened here.

OP says the other answer did not work, plus situation as not identical. Changed OP's wording so it didn't sound like a dupe.

I think you can use rm $(find...$3}'). In other words, wrap the above command inside the parens in $() to use the results as an argument to rm.
