comment How do I force a shutdown even when there are other open sessions?
This is a basic linux question, so I don't think it's relevant which version s/he's using.

Well, I'm out :) Try contacting Ubuntu support. There's probably an official channel when your purchases don't work.

Are you under a proxy? If so, you may need to talk to your admin. Otherwise, try choosing a different server in Update Manager (click Settings in the lower left, go to the Ubuntu Software tab, and select the server from Download from). More info: ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1857326

Try to run the following in a terminal: sudo apt-get update and then try installing the apps again (turn off the Software Center, and then turn it on again before trying, though). You will need to enter your password.

F6 only lets you choose which card to modify sound levels for, no?

This doesn't work for me either (on 12.04). I suspect that it is because have sni-qt installed.

This introduces some crashes for me. Bad idea.

comment I have Ubuntu 12.04 installed, i want a windows 7 dual boot, but i dont have windows 7 iso
Maybe you can try copying the files to USB and making it bootable with some other software? Make an iso and burn to USB as bootable, or something...

This isn't an answer, but depending on your configuration it will be quite a horrible experience to install Windows 7 AFTER Ubuntu without an ISO. You'd need to 1) handle not having an ISO (what does 'installation files' mean? 2) Partition correctly (easy to mess up), and 3) Reinstall grub (involved). I got an ISO of Windows 7 from MS support one time, when I lost mine--all you need is a key. I recommend reinstalling.

comment Empathy Google Talk with Non Google Account
This is a comment because my situation was slightly different, but: I input my username in the username (syzygy, say) and domain (my_university.edu) in Pidgin, which empathy then imported successfully.

comment How to remove the Mail icon indicator applet?
Oooff, messing with files like that is a horrible idea. Other applications might be using the .so, and the .so might change from version to version.
