comment How to install arduino-1.0.3-linux32.tgz?
@Masroor, Sorry, I meant no offense, but the Op is clearly new, and accepted this answer because it was the only one. The correct solution is to copy or symlink the files to the appropriate directories.

comment How to install arduino-1.0.3-linux32.tgz?
Why was this upvoted? He's asking how to install it, not run it. Just running it from your home directory doesn't work as a lot of third party tools, like ino, expect it to be installed to a standard location like /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin or /usr/share/arduino, etc. Just extracting the tarball and running the binary is not "installing" it.

The later. The user can still change it, by either using the brightness keys (assuming the mapping is correct) or using the command above but changing the 0 to a value between [0:255].

comment Ubuntu gets stuck in a Login Loop
@TerryWang, Same here. I have no idea why though. I don't remember adding that line, so I don't know why it suddenly broke my entire Xorg session. Another reason to hate Ruby...

comment How to transfer files between Android and Ubuntu?
Correction. gMTP does technically work, but is so horribly slow as to be unusable. It takes about a minute for every connect/browse/add/delete action to run. Why in the world did Android abandon the USB storage device interface that was blazing fast and "just worked"?

comment How to transfer files between Android and Ubuntu?
Doesn't work for me with an HTC One. Never detects the device. Running mtp-detect gives me the error "PTP_ERROR_IO: failed to open session, trying again after resetting USB interface".

comment Bluetooth speaker: preferred mode “High fidelity playback” (A2DP) is not getting saved
I'm embarrassed for Ubuntu that this actually works. You know software's poorly designed when disabling a feature enables it...

comment bluetooth headset connects but not showing in sound settings
Why was this answer accepted? What caused the problem to begin with, and what's the long-term fix? Ubuntu bluetooth worked perfectly for me, and then after a power outage it stopping working entirely. This command fixes it, but having to manually run this command every time I want to use bluetooth is not a solution. I've downvoted this answer until more explanation is provided.

comment How to integrate Skype into Pidgin?
This is an odd answer. It either uses the Skype app or uses the Skype API. It doesn't directly do both...

comment How to connect mtp android device to ubuntu 13.10
@LiveWireBT, You won't get an explanation because this answer is complete nonsense. I have USB3 and it still won't mount MTP devices.

This isn't the problem. I also get "device: 2 was an MTP device" but I'm still not able to mount my phone.
