comment Qt installation on ubuntu 12.10
If you have libqt4-dev installed (which should be Qt version 4.8 if you are on Ubuntu 12.04), you should already have fulfilled this requirement of the program you are planning to install.

comment Qt installation on ubuntu 12.10
That is just a general notice that you have 428 updates for your system available. You can check and install the list of available updates either by running update-manager, or by using synaptic/muon/aptitude, or by running sudo apt-get upgrade (does only do updates that don't require other packages to be removed) or sudo apt-get dist-upgrade (includes updates that need to remove other packages).

comment Wine 1.5 - 64 Bit - Bad EXE Format
As said, in order to run 32bit Windows applications (and the vast majority of Windows apps are 32bit) you'll need a 32bit WINE. The 64bit WINE is only required if you want to run 64bit Windows applications. That's why I was talking about having all libs required by WINE installed in 32bit as well, so that a 32bit WINE can be built.

comment Wine 1.5 - 64 Bit - Bad EXE Format
Did you provide all libraries required by WINE also in 32bit? The WINE configure script should complain if they are missing, but it will nevertheless allow you to build a 64bit version of WINE, which is not capable of running 32bit .exe files. Keep an eye on the output of configure and make sure to first read ./configure --help and set appropriate options. On the other hand, what's wrong with the packages available in the WINE PPA or the Ubuntu Repos?

comment Will making a USB ubuntu boot disk wipe my USB stick?
If I remember correctly (this is why I'm writing a comment instead of an answer) creating a boot disk on it will format your USB drive, so, don't do it if you still need the data on the stick.

comment what is dconf and gvfs folders?
Beware, the .gvfs folder is used for mount points of gnome virtual file system and only empty as long as nothing is mounted by it. From what I understand, both folders should exist and belong to your user, not root. Also, the file(s) in ~/.cache/dconf should belong to your user, otherwise some programs might have troubles. osdir.com/ml/ubuntu-users/2013-09/msg00592.html

comment Installing Ubuntu on new HDD, replacing it with old HDD running Windows
@Githlar I'm curious: How well does EFI respond to changing the HDD with the EFI partition on it? Also, aren't the EFI boot entries stored in NVRAM? Won't EFI still try to boot Ubuntu, even though the HDD has been changed?

comment Creating the two column design of a scientific paper
I'd just google "LaTeX tutorial" (and make sure safe search is on, for Latex might lead to, well, distracting results ^^). Installation is rather easy, just get the texlive-generic-recommended package for starting sudo apt-get install latex-generic-recommended). You can add additional LaTeX packages later when needed. I wouldn't go for texlive-full, since it requires a huge amount of disk space... For editing, Lyx is a rather nice tool, though many purists will telly you that vim or emacs are the only LaTeX editors worth using ;-)

comment Creating the two column design of a scientific paper
Just for your information: Most scientific papers are written using LaTeX [citation needed] and journals often supply premade LaTeX style files which should be used when writing papers for them. Therefore, although it's a lot of work, it might be worth to learn LaTeX instead of using LibreOffice to write scientific papers.

comment Computer randomly loggin-out on ubuntu 13.04
Oh, I'm terribly sorry, I made a mistake. Xorg.0.log was obviously overwritten when X.org restarted after whatever error occured. In this case the relevant information had at the point you posted Xorg.0.log already been moved to Xorg.1.log... I'm sorry I didn't think about this before... If you still remember how often you restarted X.org since the crash, could you check the Xorg.*.log file corresponding to the session before the logout? If not, if it happens again, please post Xorg.1.log as well.

Which part? Viewtube or the text about the phonon backend for minitube?

comment Youtube client that still works?
I don't know any other standalone clients for Youtube, BUT, if you install the VLC browser plugin, you can replace the Flash player on Youtube by VLC with a greasemonkey script: userscripts.org/scripts/show/87011 This also works with other media player plugins, but I figured that VLC is the one with the most easy to use hardware acceleration, which is quite useful on slower computers.

Regarding Minitube: Did you take care to install the vlc phonon backend or the gstreamer phonon backend instead of the dummy backend? I don't have any ubuntu PC with minitube, but on my Debian and Gentoo machines it's working like a charm...

comment Please help to switch to Ubuntu Full-Time!
Another option is to use a different Window manager. I know for sure that enlightenment can remember window size and position, and a quick test on Xfce showed that it remembers at least the size. I'd also bet, that KDE has this functionality, yet I don't have it installed so I can't test.
