As a student in South Asian languages, culture and history, specialising in comparative cultures and cognitive science, I take special interest in the influence of cultural paradigms in the perception and interaction with the world in terms of development. I am also a polyglot with a strong passion for learning languages, including programming languages such as Python. Also I am firm supporter of unix and free software.

comment DVD not detected?
Thanks. See added data in question. I cannot remove drive from laptop. I can perhaps try LiveCD and boot to see if the issue is OS or hardware based. Would that work?

comment DVD not detected?
I added the content of the file as requested. I was thinking indeed to try inserting the liveCD and boot to check if the drive works then. I will check the BIOS and return.

comment Kickoff and Krunner to search with less than 3 chars in search field?
Hi Anwar. Thanks for your answer. I hesitated to give you the bounty because I had hoped to get an explicit answer as to how achieve what I want. In this case, how to change this in the code and recompile. So if you have any knowledge to share regarding this, would you be so kind to update your answer accordingly? Thanks again.

comment Can I create a LiveUSB from Ubuntu 12.04 without having the original ISO file?
You can order the LiveCD and create the bootable USB from the CD. Technically, you would not have downloaded the ISO. But is that really answering your question?
