comment Share printer to another computer (without CUPS)
The problem is that the printer is a multifunction-printer. Therefore I would like if the Windows machine would see the printer as if it's plugged into the Windows machine's USB port. This way, I would be able to use the accompanying printer software natively, and be able to scan documents aswell.

wl is the official Broadcom driver. There are various options you can choose to apply on your system. Read the manual, and decide by yourself which method you want to apply. The method I suggested is the official Broadcom driver, but perhaps you'd be better off with an open source driver which (IMO) is easier to install. If you have any problems with that, we can take it from there.

You can try running this command: rfkill unblock all, maybe your wireless is blocked.

comment Cant boot any OS on my machine after 12.10 Install Attempt
It might be that you are using an older motherboard that does not support USB booting, or that it does not recognize FAT32. I've had such cases where I needed to format my USB stick to FAT16, and then putting the LiveCD ISO onto the USB (without reformatting ofcourse). You could try replicating this.

The blinking dash sounds like the system can't find the boot partition. You could use the Ubuntu LiveCD to go into the terminal and reinstall GRUB2 into the boot partition.

comment How to use Audio Recorder to record tracks in separate files?
If you are familiar with (bash) scripting, you could create a script that starts the Sound Recorder with the setting to stop on silence. Start recording, and hopefully the program will report to the script when the recording has stopped, from there you have the possibility to close the program and restart the script thus creating a new file. This is not a solution but merely a work-around.

That's because it is not a command itself; it's a package you must install. Follow the instructions on the manual I posted. The section that corresponds to your case is 3.1.2: 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) - 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal)

comment Can I run a 12.04 64-bit server with only 1GB RAM?
I agree with you, Robie Basak. I run a 32-bit webserver with 512MB RAM. It works efficiently, but on the other hand, I don't have that much traffic on the server as it's mainly for private use.

So you're saying that when you ran Ubuntu as a "LiveCD/LiveUSB" (trying without installing) it worked, but when you installed it, it stopped working? This could mean that there is a working driver on the installation disk. Boot into the installation disk and if the network is connected, run sudo lshw -C network and post the results.
