comment Ubuntu DNS server working, but getting errors in syslog
It seemed to me like turning off dnssec was a bad idea, so I added google's dns server to /etc/bind/named.conf.options and commented out the dns servers that were throwing errors (namely comcast's)

vbrfix worked for me. Then I rescanned the banshee library to pick up the change.

comment How to migrate from Banshee to Rhythmbox?
I told Banshee to store the counts and ratings in the media files, but it didn't import them into rhythmbox. I'm looking at the import script currently. Banshee is version: 2.9.0+really2.6.2-2ubuntu2.1

comment How do I set and store the custom Keyboard Shortcuts? (Ubuntu 14.04)
I'm thankful for your attempts, but I question whether you've read my initial post. I don't think that this back and forth in the comments is helpful. If you don't understand my initial post, let's work on clarifying my question. It shouldn't matter whether you have any of my programs installed. If you disagree, then I need to work on my initial question. I think I've shown so far that your attempts don't seem to helping me access the gnome-settings-daemon keyboard settings.

comment Unity doesn't load, no Launcher, no Dash appears
@jimifiki: press 'crtl' + 'alt' + 'f1' and then do what achiang suggested. though personally I'd move them out of the way incase you find more problems.

comment How do I set and store the custom Keyboard Shortcuts? (Ubuntu 14.04)
Actually looks like gsettings just loops back to dconf (which doesn't seem to work. gsettings list-recursively | grep custom0 sends me to /org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys/custom-keybindings/custom0 which is what I tried to set with dconf, and didn't seem to have any effect.

comment How do I set and store the custom Keyboard Shortcuts? (Ubuntu 14.04)
Thanks for the help, this seems to be pointing a helpful direction, but I'm stumped again. I currently have a keybinding set: "<Ctrl><Alt>p" which is running /usr/local/bin/pianobar-ctl p I know it because it's happening. But I don't see any reference to it in gsettings list-recursively so I'll need some other tool I guess to toggle that setting.

comment Banshee play queue won't add songs and switches to play library
The second problem could be argued as a feature, though I could see why you might want it configurable. The first is something I find frustrating also. I've given up using the DJ and added stuff manually. I guess if I want random play, I switch to pandora. I wish I could use banshee for it though

If you make that a solution, and mark it as a solution, I'll upvote that too. Thanks!

comment is 'dd' command taking too long?
Thanks @JimSalter I was just noticing that my piping: dd if=/dev/sda | pv | dd of=/file was using up 20%, 60%, and 20% CPU respectively. Which to me seems to be a problem.

comment How do I resize an encrypted LVM to install another copy of Ubuntu?
I'm pretty sure you wouldn't need a live cd if you can unmount the partitions. I guess the most common layout is with the root system being encrypted, though?

This still works in 13.10. I just restarted compiz like you said. Thanks.

Here's a rather accurate solution for 13.10 and all past versions: askubuntu.com/a/179107/17065 Note the change in path from '.thumbnails' to '.cache/thumbnails'

This was my solution in ubuntu 13.10. I don't remember having this problem in ubuntu 12.04.

comment Trying to install Steam ERROR: You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run: not
This package isn't available for debian wheezy, or for suacy (13.10). I'm trying to remember when the migration happened for ubuntu... but they migrated from installing 32 bit packages this way.
