Did you try to change the output device manually in Sound Settings?

comment GUI time is different than command line time
Is your BIOS clock set to UTC or local time? If it's UTC, /etc/default/rcS should have a line UTC=yes, otherwise UTC=no.

comment static ip issue
I see that nobody asked why you wanted to edit /etc/network/interfaces in the first place, we all assumed that you have to do it. So, do you really need to edit /etc/network/interfaces or did you read a guide that might be outdated? You can certainly use a static IP address with the normal network manager (if you are using a GUI, at least).

comment static ip issue
I meant the lines (rows of text) in /etc/network/interface. You can disable the lines (for eth1) by putting a "#" at the start of the line. Or you can remove (delete) these lines.

comment static ip issue
I'm not sure whether you can have eth0 and eth1 in the same network (192.168.1.*) at the same time - if the system wants to reach 192.168.1.1, how can it decide whether it should use eth0 or eth1? Can you please disable/remove the lines for either eth0 or eth1?

You wrote you are "not sure which one my wire is plugged into right now". If you get an address from DHCP on eth0, wouldn't eth0 be the interface which is connected?

comment How to change default scaling governor back to ondemand
It's /etc/default/cpufrequtils on Ubuntu, not /etc/conf.d/cpufreq. And the variables (as seen in /etc/init.d/cpufrequtils) are MAX_SPEED, MIN_SPEED and GOVERNOR.

comment apt-get keeps saying to check Internet, while I have a good connection
Thank you for posting the exact error message, but the obvious question now is: did you check your internet connection and what was the result? You could open a browser and see if your internet connection works.

comment How do I swap mouse buttons to be left handed from the terminal?
It should be permanent if you put it in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf. If not, you can put it in Startup Applications or create a .desktop file in ~/.config/autostart from the terminal.

sh -c "vlc ~/Music/* -Z" should work, but there is a bug, so quoting doesn't work.
