comment Different fan behaviour in my laptop after upgrade, what to do now?
@Seth I just tried 3.15.rc7 and the fans are running like crazy when the cpu has 45-47 degress celsius, without load (just a web browser).

Thanks. Will the 3.14 kernel be part of the ubuntu 14.04 repositories in some weeks or do I have to update manually (or wait for ubuntu 14.10)?

@bain That seems to be asus specific!? lsmod tells me that the dell-laptop module is loaded.

comment Emulator for iphone/ipod/ipad apps
I think the iemu project is abandoned, see: phandroid.com/2011/09/16/… -- your link also doesn't work anymore... Is there any alternative?

Can you explain what the last step does in detail and why one needs it?

@RaduRădeanu It's not a duplicate. The suggested solutions there don't work.

I get the message that my software is up to date. By the way: why should gksu give a different result than sudo?

comment Upgrade from 13.10 to 14.04: “No new release found”
Thanks. All steps before replacing saucy by trusty fail. But I am not sure if I should really try your last step. Does this lead to a safe upgrade? Doing apt-get dist-upgrade should then upgrade many packages since the sources are now trusty sources. I also commented out all ppas but didn't use ppa-purge, but I guess this should not make any difference...

comment How is Trim enabled?
@Rinzwind Thanks. LVM is a layer which must pass the TRIM commands. dm-crypt also needs activated TRIM support, see for example: blog.neutrino.es/2013/… According to the blueprint you linked, it seems not to be activated by default!?

comment Is there a shell-independent HUD-like menu search tool for Xfce/GNOME/Cinnamon?
Wouldn't this not be a bit impolite since it is not my own question? If not I will do it.

Until unity 2d was dropped this was possible even with HUD itself (askubuntu.com/questions/202117/xmonad-with-unity-hud)

HUD – Heads UP Display – uses an intelligent search-based approach to finding and accessing menu items you need. It’s smart too; HUD is capable of remembering what items you use most often and prioritising them in the results. Here is a video showing this feature in the example of gimp. Here is an overview: omgubuntu.co.uk/2012/01/hud-new-unity-feature Now we want something like this which is not tied to unity, which you can use in gnome or other window managers.

The question is not about how to find and start applications but how to access the menu bar entries of a given application using the keyboard like in HUD.

comment Auctex in 12.04 ignores Emacs 24
I just realized that it happens only if there is a empty line in the local variables list (see bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/auctex/+bug/1149196)
