comment Permissions issue when trying to save file to /var/www
This is old as all hell, but for anyone coming in late make sure to remove those permissions if you're done diagnosing. Currently I set up (On Arch but the principle applies, /var/www/ on Ubuntu) a /srv/http/ directory in my ~/Documents/ folder so I can sudo cp -R ~/srv/http/* /srv/http/ to publicize my updates; I recommend choosing security of your server, if it is public, over practicality. You can, however, run your text editor with sudo or gksudo: gksudo gedit /var/www/index.php (For the Arch buddies out there, you'll have to sudo pacman -S gksu).

comment How to make custom refresh rate stay saved?
If either of the solutions solved at least as much as you can do about the issue I'd ask that you mark either of them as successful, unless you have other reasons. As much as I look forward to Wayland I have to say OpenGL relies quite heavily on X at the minute so hopefully the core has compatibility for Wayland before I start to write any code for it lol.

comment X server on 15.10 keeps crushing and restarting at login
How did it go? I only did a quick skim of the syslog because of it's size but I can take a closer look if that isn't the issue.

Probably not the issue here but are you running Docky? A lot of the early lines look familiar.

comment Live USB not installing
I agree with that, this seems to be more of a question about the differences between the live and install versions of Ubuntu and what might cause them to behave differently, I assume. At the same time, I would try the suggested link if you want to give a crack at solving this before any other suggestions are made.

Just a stab here, what GPU are you using and were you using the old fglrx AMD drivers if using AMD before upgrading?

comment Restoring Grub Launcher After Windows 10
Did this work? Given the this is the only answer here it's probably best to either mark it as solved or give feedback so we can reply for others or continue to help you, please.

comment How to have launcher on non-primary screen?
As disappointing as I am that this feature is not currently available despite it's obvious requirement from many people, I placed a bounty on this question that is about to expire and in the interest of not wasting reputation I'm going to award it to you for the closest I'm going to get until this is implemented~

comment How to have launcher on non-primary screen?
This very much defeats the objective of having the launcher on the non-primary monitor, but very useful for anyone who stumbles across this and requires the opposite I suppose!

comment Removing Ubuntu One
Good work, also, here is a link to the ubuntu-desktop package, it will list the many things which depend upon it being installed and consequently will cease to work if it is removed.

comment Removing Ubuntu One
That is a shame, I wouldn't go as far to say that Ubuntu One was necessary or a large part of my Linux experiences (otherwise I would never have researched how to remove it), but it was still a useful service for many.
