comment Ubuntu 14.04 stuck in headphone mode (no sound through speakers)
Interesting. FWIW, I dual boot with Windows 7 on a desktop machine. I don't use sound all that often, so I don't have any more data on this.

comment How to set default program?
Wow, what UI idiocy by Ubuntu. Right-click -> open with -> other application DOES NOT show "Set as default"... Right-click -> Properties -> Open With DOES show "Set as default".

comment Launcher icons invisible, still work in 12.04
FYI, for me, rebooting fix this problem for a while, then it kept coming back. unity --reset-icons worked for me only after upgrading the unity package using sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install unity, and thankfully it didn't require a reboot. Crossing my fingers this fixes it for good.
