comment Cannot install Synaptic (Ubuntu 14.04)
Perhaps try sudo apt-get install -f synaptic

comment network ports(open or close)
Nothing seems out of order with the ports that are open in your list. By default, no ports are opened in Linux unless a service specifically opens them. Unless you have installed a firewall like ufw, ports are typically managed through iptables for which you can read man iptables in Terminal.

comment PS3 Media Server Installation on 14.10
PS3's seem pretty good about using any DLNA server. You might look at Plex which has specific support for the PS3, PS4 and XBox.

comment Video on Cisco website not working
Sorry, I have nothing to offer - getting Java applets to run reliably has been an issue on my Linux installs. even with current Java installed and the IcedTea plugin.

comment Video on Cisco website not working
Do you have Java installed, and what steps have you taken to try resolving the issue? The applet works for me but I have to turn my security settings in Java to a low threshold as the applet has an untrusted certificate attached.

comment xbox controller keys wont map properly
It just doesn't tell you what text editor to invoke in Terminal to make the changes. I like pico for its simplicity; try sudo pico /etc/default/xboxdrv

comment webmin not working on ubuntu
Try removing the Webmin references in iptables by editing /etc/iptables.up.rules. Port 10000 is up so Webmin should respond.

comment SRV record for localhost XMPP
Not 100% sure on this, but I believe that you would put the SRV entry in /etc/bind/db.local which is the localhost record. As far as making the edit to the record files, your favorite Terminal text editor (vi, pico, etc.) executed with sudo will be required as the bind files are owned by root.

comment Can't SSHing to Ubuntu via hostname and port other than 22
@KennyEvitt I could see the machine not responding to a .local query if there was no mDNS service installed. IS your router hosting a legit BIND zone, or some other host caching scheme?

@KennyEvitt So, you're running an internal DNS server?

comment smtp authentication virtual domain ubuntu 14.4
Sorry, not sure that I understand. Open a Terminal session and run doveconf -n. Edit your post with the contents of the output of that command.

comment smtp authentication virtual domain ubuntu 14.4
One of the first things I noticed on that page was that it was not current for 12.04 and newer versions of Ubuntu. Can you edit your post to include the contents of doveconf -n? I think your problem is that Postfix and Dovecot aren't configured properly to pass off SASL authentication.

comment A question about Webmin.ver 1.720
Where in Webmin are you seeing this "error" reported? I use Webmin and see where you can set it to monitor the drive (Webmin Configuration -> Background Status Collection) but not where to set it to be displayed if there is an error. Given that your drive temp is very normal, you might just shut that monitoring off.

comment PCI-ONLY Ubuntu 14.04 cards
Perhaps you might see what cards are available that you would use and then search here for any issues with the particular chipset used on the card(s)? As it stands, your question is a bit too open-ended.
