comment Winehq to run bulk image downloader
Why are you not using "wget" to download images from a website? Here is an example: stackoverflow.com/questions/4602153/… Or this one: askubuntu.com/questions/373047/…

comment What program is there that can unzip files to the usb port?
"to an usb port"?! Or do you mean to a hard disk connected to an usb port? You do know any archiver can be told to extract the file to a destination? That is not enough?

comment Error renaming file: -6: Not Supported
The problem will be the file itself and the driver: the MTP driver checks for compatible files against the phone and will error out if the file is not supported by the phone. Mind that mkv is a container and the MTP driver probably will check the movie file itself. Example: mplayer -vo null -ao null -frames 0 -identify file.mkv should show some infor about the file . The "Selected video codec" in the result should tell you. If it is h.264 and your phone does not support it you got your answer otherwise this could be a bug in the MTP driver.

comment “Distribution not supported” when trying to install Intel Graphics Installer in Ubuntu
If something goes wrong it is not due to this temporary alteration. Have you even tried it with a none working installation? I have and I can tell you it worked flawlessly. There is no check when removing and all is removed as it should. Very simple if you get this notice: you either can not install Ubuntu or you use this and can install it. Simple choice for me. Feel free to provide an answer yourself for this.

comment “Distribution not supported” when trying to install Intel Graphics Installer in Ubuntu
no it is not and does not @Pilot6 Mind the "After that you can then put back the backup file with" makes it --harmless-- and it only circumvents the stupid check from the installer.

comment Script to spread each file to its associated directory
12-04-2015? Not smart... I would use 2015-04-12 where 04 is month and 12 the day. That way they order nicely when using ls. What you want can be done with pyrenamer if you want ( apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/precise/pyrenamer )

comment Why does FireFox crash so frequently?
Without an error/crash notice this is impossible to answer. Please check if logs in /var/log contain a notice. Or start firefox from command line and check the output when it crashes. "why it crashes" can be anything... from bad memory/hardware to a software bug but you give us nothing to answer.

comment Run command on startup only after a certain time in day
That is just a normal crontab rule. See /etc/crontab. If you want it executed at 17:00 use that. You can also have it run after 17:00 and then every so often.
