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.

Isn't there an equivalent for KDE? I had a prompt in 12.04, why is it gone?

comment How to transfer files from Samsung Galaxy to Ubuntu 12.04?
Okay, I created a shared connection, activated it and it shows connected on my laptop. However, it is not picked up by AirDroid which scans other regular WiFi Connections. Did I miss something? (should I post another specific question?)

I have Kubuntu 12.04 and cannot follow the second link you gave me. This seems to be the answer.

This option would require using data credit from both my phone SIM and laptop SIM, it would make transfers expensive, unless I get some free WiFi somewhere. But good one, thanks.

So let me get it, I install Airdroid on my phone, what do I install on my laptop? Anything? Does using Airdroid takes data from my SIM?

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.

Of course I tried that. Plugged, unplugged, replugged, reboot with device plugged, reboot device unplugged then plugged it ... etc. etc. nothing.
