comment Unattended Offline Edubuntu 14.04 Install
If you want an edubuntu desktop it might be better to start with the edubuntu ISO and not a server version (otherwise you will need to download every DEB that is connected to the metapackage edubuntu-desktop. That is a lot of manual work and you can still use this kickstart config.

comment Ubuntu software center not opening error “countrycode”
" I realized that I don't have the permission so I can't save after editing it" You need to use "sudo". I changed the original question to make that clear. Basically this a dupe to what you link to).

comment What does the “size” of a symlink represent in ls output?
See my answer: it is the name, target and some metadata. In total it makes up for 7 bytes. Other OS store other metadata and so will have a different size.

comment What does the “size” of a symlink represent in ls output?
du only looks at how many blocks are allocated, and so may show 0. stat and ls -l are smarter.

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.
