comment Copy files in a directory to another directory
@heroin: I'm glad that you commented here. I believe that you just dived in Unix commands. Once you'll get experienced you'll say later how powerful, robust and flexible the commands are.. I can understand your frustration and also can say that you don't know how to use find and xargs commands. I suggest you to go though it. man find and man xargs would help you to learn about these commands. Happy Learning!

comment Low network speeds Ubuntu 14.04 RTL8191SU 0bda:8172
Not sure why you're not getting the details. Are you sure you followed the same way. lshw should list all the hardware details and the drivers in used. So under network section you should get the products and configuration details in addition to others.

@GeorgeD: I would like you to perform these actions: 1. Run this command sudo lshw -html > myspecs.html 2. Open myspecs.html in any browser and search network 3. Then tell me the exact details for products: and configuration:

@Layke: Are you using any bit-torrent client like qbittorrent? Like this there are many applications which inhibit system sleeps when they are active.

comment mdmsetup returns exit status 1
@cat: I guess you're trying wrong command to configure mdm. Instead of gksudo mdmsetup just try sudo dpkg-reconfigure mdm and then select mdm from the list and press ok. Then try to reboot your system. if sudo dpkg-reconfigure mdm doesn't work then you can also try sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm and then select mdm from the list.

comment Extend Ubuntu Partition to a Windows Drive
If /dev/sd8 doesn't have any data then what I suggest is to format it to ext4 i,e same partition as /dev/sda10 and then merge it without loosing any data using gparted. Hope you got it what I want to say.
