comment How to force subtitles in VLC to display at bottom
As per comment to OP, see this question. Since this question is closed, can't add this as an answer, but here's the tl;dr: in vlc preferences, show "all", under video/filters, enable checkbox "Video cropping filter" (don't forget!), then edit video/filters/Cropadd Padd "pixels to padd to bottom" to "100"; and "Save". Then edit "simple" preferences, Subtitles/OSD, "Force subtitle position", -200 px, "Save". Restart VLC. See also: vlchelp.com/how-to-change-subtitle-position-in-vlc

comment View two text files at the same time side by side
Actually, I think sdiff does have an option to ignore by regexp (but I'm not positive). Still, if it's just free-form text from French & English, there's no need to highlight anything, and any attempt to match up lines -- as I mentioned -- would be a negative. Sometimes, we just wants see files side by side (and that's the essence of the original question, as I understood it).

comment View two text files at the same time side by side
You are absolutely correct, and I should have clarified; the problem is that these tools don't have a config option to expect and allow that certain differences should be there (afaik). In some cases, they consider the whole file too different to even bother to line up. Eg, a useful option (with my example: msg.text="Hello" vs msg.text="Bonjour") would be to ignore part of the two files by either "first N chars", or regexp: "^.*="

comment View two text files at the same time side by side
I do like & use meld, kdiff3, even sdiff; but if I just want to view two files side by side that are (supposed to be) different (eg, i18n translation resource bundles -- the property matches, value does not; looking for missing properties), then the attempts to line up matching lines & mark lines that are different is actually a negative.

If the relevant error/messages are not in *.log, check older, rotated logs *.log.0, *.log.1, etc.

comment How to update ClamAV definitions database?
Presently, the clamav-freshclam service takes care of updating the definitions (as of 15.04 for sure, possibly as early as 12.04). For Nautilus integration, install clamtk-nautilus (and restart nautilus)

comment How to update ClamAV definitions database?
To force the daily update to happen on-demand, you can stop the service & update & then restart it: $ service clamav-freshclam stop and then: $ sudo freshclam and again, $ service clamav-freshclam start

comment How to update ClamAV virus definitions?
If the daemon is running to update the definitions automatically, there will be an error about the logs being locked. See comments at (duplicate): askubuntu.com/q/114000/17060

comment Connection problem if I enable “Cloned MAC Address” on my Wifi
This doesn't answer the question, though. Either the GUI is the same as the command & is broken (or being used incorrectly) -- or the GUI is doing something different. Interested to know, having the same issue.

comment Disable Touchpad While Typing does not work
On Ubuntu 15.04, the palm detection settings are range: Narrow->Wide and pressure: Low->High. For the synaptics touchpad, these can be set and listed using synclient -l | grep Palm. Setting PalmDetect=1 means enabled. PalmMinWidth is range in the UI, and is the minimum width for the touch to be considered a palm. PalmMinZ is the minimum pressure required for the touch to be considered a palm (lower is more sensitive). nb: have been reports that settings are not correctly persisted across reboots
